Craftbrewery De Vlijt started out under the name Het Achterom as a small brewery in the city of Apeldoorn but couldn’t meet the demand anymore because of the growing interest. A new brewery, Veluwse Schavuyt, was founded and established in the boiler room on the premises of the former Zwitsal factory, a unique industrial heritage.
As of 2016, restaurant, distillery and tasting room the Hoofdvaartkerk has been renamed and restyled into Jopenkerk Hoofdorp. It is housed in a beautifully renovated historic building, the oldest church of Haarlemmermeer.
