"We brew what we like, not necessarily within the boundaries of pre-defined beer styles."

Local as can be

‘VandeStreek’ means literally “from the area, local” in Dutch, but it is not just a name that’s made up for this craft brewery in Utrecht. It actually happens to be the last name of Sander and Ronald, two brothers in beer. After having brewed on a small scale for a number of years since 2010, they decided the time had come to introduce their beers to the rest of the Netherlands (and the world). At first by means of contract brewing at, among others, Utrecht based brewery Brouwerij De Leckere. But since 2017 they are the proud owners of a true craft brewery, Brouwerij vandeStreek, located in a former industrial building on the outskirts of Utrecht.

Beer styles? What beer styles?

At Brouwerij vandeStreek they brew whatever they like, not necessarily within the boundaries of pre-defined beer styles. This makes their beers very diverse. The focus is on taste and flavours, not so much on the alcohol. You guessed it, these guys are not afraid to experiment. In their Playground-Series they offer barrel aged beers and other good stuff, not all of these are available year round. A very successful example of this series is their non-alcoholic IPA (0,5% ABV), definitely the best non alcoholic beer we ever had! As a result this now will be one of their seven solid beers they brew.

Cars and beers

Like a number of other Dutch craft breweries, Brouwerij vandeStreek is located in an industrial area. Surrounded by numerous car dealerships and repair shops they created their own hot spot in Overvecht, in the north of Utrecht. A former industrial building is now home to a brewhouse and fermentation tanks they designed themselves and were ordered in China. It’s a bit of a shame we missed the arrival of this giant transport. That sure would have provided some great video footage!

Beer city Utrecht

Browsing through the pages of our website you might have noticed that Utrecht is becoming a truly great beer city with some amazing beerbars, brewpubs and microbreweries. For a fairly small sized city it now has six breweries and numerous contract brewers whose beers are served in many of the local bars and restaurants. Utrecht also happens to be location of our Tasty Tales headquarters, we assume that you understand why…
