Blanche of Namur was the daughter of John, Count of Namur. It is told that Magnus IV Eriksson, King of Sweden and Norway, was attracted by the young princess's beauty, when he was travelling to France in search of a prestigious wife. The princess embarked for Scandinavia in August 1335 and was never to see the banks of the Meuse again. She would become Queen of Norway, Sweden and Scania. In memory of her beauty, her sweetness and her delicacy, the Brasserie Du Bocq dedicated a wheat beer to her: The "Blanche de Namur".

Everything began in 1858 when Martin Belot, Farmer in Purnode, started brewing a beer in his farm. In the very beginning the beer was only brewed in the winter, when there was no work for his farm workers in the fields. The discovery if a well of water of outstanding quality and quantity close to the farm was of course and additional asset. The brewery proposed a very wide range of products, going from table-beer to strong beers passing through a large mix of densities, colours, bitterness and tastes. The brewer distributed the beers himself to his customers, mostly within a few kilometres around the brewery. Today, nothing has changed in Purnode, at least in the art of brewing. Even if the company has widely extended its local activities, it nethertheless remains a family concern. Be sure this story will last for many years and that the beers of the Brasserie du Bocq will animate for ever and ever this charming little village of Purnode.
