Alfa Brewery, Schinnen
(4.6/5 based on 30+ reviews on the web)
Alfa Brewery is a family-owned independent brewery located in Schinnen, the Netherlands. Alfa was started in 1870 by Joseph Meens and is one of the few independent breweries left in the Province of Limburg.AvailabilityUntil 1960 Alfa beers were only available in the local area, but since then the brewery has expanded, and their beers are now available throughout the Netherlands. Since 1993 Alfa also expanded their distribution to Germany, the United Kingdom, the United States, Greece, Italy and Hong Kong.Brief detailsThe brewery follows the Reinheitsgebot and is the only brewery in the Netherlands that uses an officially certified underground spring. The Dutch Ministry of Health, Welfare, and Sport certified the underground spring in 1995 and retests it every six months to ensure it continues to meet the stringent standards. It is one of only 10 such springs in the country and the only one used in the production of beer. The water is so pure that it does not require any processing before it is entered into the brewing process. Only a certain amount of water is permitted to be withdrawn each year, and this has led Alfa to number their beer bottles to ensure that only the authorised amount is used.AwardsAlfa has won a variety of national and international recognition. They were granted a Royal Warrant by Royal Decree from HM Queen Beatrix in 1995. Their beers have also won gold medals in the 31st and 33rd Monde Selections in Brussels and received an award in the 1999 UK Beer and Cider Competition.

  • Where do you get coffee or tea with a piece of pie, after a short film a tour of the brewery, after more than an hour to taste the opportunity for unlimited Alpha (for those who want unlimited soft drinks and no alcohol Apple juice) and also another glass for less than 10 euros! Just make a reservation via the website. And then you are to: this Lager is tasty. Fortunately in the Utrecht for sale. Now but wait and see if the home bottle or look just as delicious as the tap.

  • Good coffee, cake and of course beer. Fun movie, unspectacular tour, kind of boring. The host turned a standard Chat (not wrong to conceive) with here and there a joke and unfortunately no dialers and/or Burgundian Limburg. Nevertheless a successful visit .... the beer is excellent!
