Who Are Jopen?
We go back to where it all began… Our town of Haarlem is one of the largest brewing cities in the Netherlands. Breweries are running at full speed and the beer is transported in “Jopen”, 112 liter beer kegs, across the river Spaarne.
Beer becomes an important export product of Haarlem. Haarlem beer is known far beyond the borders. In order to monitor the quality, the city council draws up brewer’s labels that describe the brewing process in detail. Brewed with a mixture of herbs, Koyt is even the most widely consumed beer in Antwerp.
Good news for Jopen fans; To brew even more delicious beer, we are opening a second brewery in the Waarderpolder.
