Pierre Celis, who revived witbier with his Hoegaarden (later sold to what is now AB-Inbev); in 1992 at the age of 67, founded a new microbrewery in Austin TX. (At a Brickskeller tasting, Celis, who spoke English haltingly, remarked that he chose Texas because its inhabitants speak with a slow drawl, making them easier to understand.)
