History of the Home brewery

The first micro- or home breweries arose in Europe early ’80-s. They were newly set-up or came forth out of existing local family breweries: some of them stopped brewing and switched to the serving of fresh beer at home. Most of them were German.

The starting period was tough. Expensive and complicates machinery and many difficulties in the brewing process caused the end of lots of them whereas others switched again to an common café with national brands.

Nevertheless home brewery wasn’t just a phantasy. Consumers were looking for a high quality natural product matching with their personal preferential taste.
‘t Pakhuis is one of those home breweries where beer is still being brewed in an authentic way, i.e. with pure natural ingredients, without filtrage and no pasteurization.
The tempered and always balanced use of ingredients belongs to one of the most important skills of the master brewer.

From the very beginning the quality of our beer has been our goal.

Due to the strong demands on valuable ingredients, the precise brewing process and the skill of our brewers, we have been able to produce unique beers.
