The brewery runs an interesting tour and our guide was informative and entertaining. An English guide is available upon request. We did not have one but between my language knowledge and some friendly translation by a friend and another tour member, I got through. The...More

Very nivce to visit-drink something in the cosy brewery yard, we ate some "beer-bitterballs (bitterballs are not bitter, it is a typical dutch fryed snack). Really a nice place to stay for a while.

After making an appointment to have a guided tour the tour leader shows the process of making different kind of beers. Interesting is the bottle section. The finishing touch is the cellar with the lay-up of a lot of bottles some reached the 8 years....More

Bitterballs, spareribs, a lot of beer and a very nice terras! I'm happy and would definitely recommend it!

Thijs is awesome, speaks loud en clear, Dutch only by the way (!). Great tour of this old brewery, interesting chemical facts and nice tasting moments. Pretty souvenir at the end. I loved the cellars. To be recommended.

Superb beer and great place to look round if you are into beer. You can do a tour, or just shop if you prefer. All their current brews plus a few other things. Try the Prestige beer cheese.

We booked by email some weeks prior, telling the brewery that we didn't speak Dutch and would require some interpretation, however none was forthcoming, the tour guide simply said 'they don't read the emails', thanks for that. The beer was ok but pretty much a...More
