De Kromme Haring is all about surprising, well-made, delcious and drinkable beers.

Biologist and homebrewer Stephen Grigg travelled from America via the UK to settle in the Netherlands as (homebrewery) De Kromme Haring. After meeting beer-afficionado Gijs van Wiechen, who invited him to brew the anniversary beer for infamous bar-dive Kafe Belgie, the two decided to "go pro" in 2014.

After the first tentative, educational and sometimes frustrating steps in contractbrewing they quickly decided that they needed their own system and place to pursue their aproach to brewing. This cunning plan came to fruition when they opened their very own brewpub in september 2016, with the brewery installed in december 2016.

With over 20 years of brewing experience, we have cultivated a deep love for English malts and American hops. However, we love yeast even more and believe that the quality of fermentation is at the core of all well-made beer. Knowing how to work with many different kinds of yeast, both "clean" and "wild", is what sets us apart.

Our brewery and yeast lab allows us to experiment with lesser known and used yeast strains in our brewery. Part of our brewery is even dedicated to stainless steel fermenting with wild yeasts like Brettanomyces and/or blended cultures, creating surprising and delicious flavours. We still contractbrew a selection of our clean beers as well.

The only thing we fear is shitty beer

Our beers


Crushable Ale || 4.5% || Keg Only || Available at the brewpub & select bars in NL

Ah! The joys of a crushable beer. A beer that hits the spot on a warm afternoon in the sun, tastes so good after a long bike ride or cools your dancing fever. Light in alcohol, Whitebait has 20% wheat for a soft flavour, while the Magnum & Cascade hops give it the refreshing aromas of oranges with a hint of spice. As no style really fits, we decided to call it out for what it is: A crushable ale.



American Amber || 5,5% || Keg only || Available at the Brewpub & select bars in NL

For our first beer brewed at our brewpub, we decided on a simple, yet classic recipe and style. An American Amber to us is all about how a soft body with biscuity, caramel flavours works with a subtle if present hop aroma and soft bitterness. Chinook and Cascade are classics for this style and to accentuate the softness we deliberately reduced the co2 to create a velvety texture. The second batch replaces Chinook with Falconer's Flight



Black IPA || 6.5% || Kegs & bottles || Available at the Brewpub & select bottle shops

We feel a black IPA should be about hoppiness in relation to some, but not too much roast. We think we did well. We taste oranges, soft bitter, fruity coffee & a hint of dark chocolate, do you agree?



Coffee Stout || Collaboration with The Village Coffee&Music || 5,5% || Kegs & Cans || Available at the Brewpub & select bars & bottleshops

Oatmeal Stout brewed with excellent cold brew coffee roasted by our friends of The Village Coffee, this is one to keep you awake at night.


Barbarian Fishing

New England IPA || 8% || Kegs & cans || Available at the brewpub and select bottle shops

Our take on the New England IPA style. Our home-propagated Conan Yeast strain meets a big amount of fruity hops during fermentation. This turns the beer into flavourfull extremely fruity DIPA. Brewed in small batches to make sure it is always drunk fresh.


Rhubarb Gurnard

Wild Ale || 5,5% || Limited Keg Only

Our limited rhubarb beer swims into our pond from time to time. A nicely funky and slightly sour beer fermented with a blend of different brettanomyces and saison yeast, lagered on rhubarb. A very refreshing beer that tastes well young but also has a very interesting development over time.
