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

The organised tour at this brewery was very good. The guide (Thijs) was knowledgeable and a good story-teller. We tasted quite a few beers inside the brewery and were lucky to taste the new beer on whisky barrel (I forgot the name). At the end...More

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.

If you want to know more about beer go to this brewery. You find the best special beers in the Netherlands. It's a great tour and it takes 2 hours. Visit afterwards this little village on the Maas, you won't regret it.
