Brouwerij Maximus

The Netherlands

"We’re not known for extreme beers, we try to keep it sort of subtle in a way."

Brouwerij Maximus is a young and ambitious small brewery a little outside of the city of Utrecht. The three men behind the brewery are not exactly new to the brewing scene, but have a story of home brewing, gypsybrewing and running Utrecht’s well known pub Café België.

Besides being a brewery and brewpub, Brouwerij Maximus is also a social enterprise where people with a distance to the labourmarket get the chance to do an internship and practice their social skills which can help them to get ahead in life.
