Brouwerij Maallust

The Netherlands

"If you can brew your own beer, that’s a boy’s dream!"

Maallust is the name of the area around an old grain mill in the small village of Veenhuizen in the north of the Netherlands. An interesting and isolated place that was used for a social experiment back in the 19th century, then turned into a penitentiary institution and now is the home of this Dutch craft brewery. 

The initial idea of the 25 co-owners was just to brew their own beers and share it with others, but it got gone completely out of hand. They now have the ambition to brew the best beers possible, while holding on to the original idea of a small production volume, and by not expanding outside the given boundaries of Maallust.

The general thought was that no one would come to Katendrecht for good drinks and good food, as it is a part of Rotterdam with a rough past. Now craft brewery and brewpub Kaapse Brouwers and the Fenix Food Factory are a major tourist attraction that draws quite a crowd, especially in the weekends.
