Brouwerij Haacht: Visit an independent family-run brewery


Haacht Brewery established in 1898 is one of Belgium’s largest brewers. Nowadays, the family-owned business is run by the 3rd and 4th generation. The beers are brewed according to the craftsmanship and tradition passed down over the decades, from father to son.
A brewery visit brings the rich history to life as you walk past the buildings from the beginning of the 20th century.

Don’t be fooled by the appearance of the historical façades. Our brewing, bottling and fermentation processes are state of the art.


The abbey beer, Tongerlo Blond, reveals the brewer’s true craftsmanship. It was recently proclaimed as World’s Best Beer during the World Beer Awards 2014. For the first time, a Belgian beer roped in this prestigious title.
Needless to say that it’s worth to discover the other beer types, ranging from the pilsner Primus to the special beer Charles Quint and fruit beer Mystic.
