Visit Haacht Brewery

Are you a beer lover in heart and soul and interested in how we do things in our authentic brewery? Come and visit us. We can guarantee it’ll be a fun family outing or the perfect teambuilding activity.

What to expect?

For four generations, Haacht Brewery has been a 100% Belgian family-run brewery. We’re very proud of our tradition and our craftsmanship. Our rich history will come to life during the brewery visit, which will lead you past the buildings and remnants from the start of the previous century. Don’t be fooled, though, because behind the historic facades, the brewing process, bottling and refermentation are all operated by the latest technologies.

A visit to Haacht Brewery is the perfect outing with friends and family or a great teambuilding activity. It’s also interesting for bar and restaurant managers to visit the brewery with some of their customers. In addition to the numerous stories we can tell you about beer, there are also many myths and legends to discover. Time for a unique brewery visit to experience the ambiance of the brewery firsthand.

During the brewery visit we’ll immerse you in our authentic beer culture. A professional guide will show you, among other things, the different aspects of the brewery process. In total, the tour will take about two hours. At the end of the tour, you will of course be able to taste our beers.
