Yes, Swinkels bought a 35% stake in de Molen in 2016.

Last month they bought the rest of the shares and now own de Molen outright.

"By acquiring the rest of the shares of Brouwerij de Molen, Swinkels Family Brewers will have ownership over the brewery. "

I am not sure of what the Gaenstaller / de Molen link was other than they did a collaboration brew together and that Gaenstaller was one of the brewers at de Molen's Borefts Beer Festival. They are certainly friends with each other.
