Why not pay us a visit?

There are thousand and one stories about beer, some are true and others not. Now is the time to see with your own eyes how white, blond, brown, amber or red beers are created from natural ingredients.

 

Haacht Brewery has been a family brewer for 4 generations and we are rightly proud of our tradition and craftsmanship. A visit to the brewery brings our rich history to life as you walk past buildings and relics from the beginning of the last century. But don't forget that the latest technology controls the brewing process and the bottling and fermentation behind the historic façades.

 

With so many stories and surprises, our visits are great fun for everyone.

Practical info

Visits  last for almost two hours.  Our professional guide will show you the various aspects of the brewing process and you will see bottles and kegs being filled. At the end there is a tasting of bottom and top fermented beers in 'het Brouwershof' opposite our brewery.  This is the ideal opportunity to try 'Primus with yeast'. We tap this delicacy every day directly from the storage tanks in the brewery. Our younger visitors can choose from our tasty range of waters and soft drinks.
