Our latest brewery: Homeland Brewery

Our latest brewery: Homeland Brewery

On an old marine wharf in the city center of Amsterdam a new brewery has opened: Homeland Brewery. The greatest thing about this brewery is that it hasn’t been discovered by tourists yet! Its interior is not fancy: with its vinyl floor and old furniture it rather looks like a canteen in a retirement home, but that’s exactly what makes this brewery so charming. The beers they produce are pale ale and spelt beer. In summer you can sit outside on the terrace and you will have a lovely view over the historic centre and port of Amsterdam. http://www.homeland-brewery.nl
