On March 8th and 9th, Brouwerij Homeland will be a guest at the National Maritime Museum for a unique craft beer festival. Immerse yourself in the world of innovative craft beers, dinners and tastings, beautiful exhibitions, live music, and more.

At this craft beer festival, get acquainted with the complete range of Brouwerij Homeland. Innovative craft beers ranging from refreshing and fruity to robust and spicy, and everything in between. In addition to freshly brewed beers, there are also barrel-aged beers, wild-fermented beers, and unexpected specials, such as our peanut butter beer "Donderbus." And not to forget our brewer John's creations: the John's Specials, a very limited edition of craft beers brewed specifically for this weekend. All beers are, of course, artisanally brewed on the Marineterrein with a touch of adventure!

Taste, smell, play, discover, and experience. Because in addition to all festival activities (read: beer tastings, games, quizzes, and dinners), your admission ticket also grants you free access to the museum and the exhibition "Food For Thought": a bird's-eye view of the world of our food through the lens of photographer and filmmaker Kadir van Lohuizen. And did we mention that you get to take home the beer yard glass you receive upon entry?

Gather all your friends - big and small - and taste, play, and dance together at the Brouwerij Homeland x The National Maritime Museum Craft Beer Festival 2024!
