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

A small selection of our beers

Smokey the Barracuda

Imperial Smoked Porter || 7.5% || Keg & bottle || Available at the brewpub and at bottle shops

Our first baby, still going strong. Originally made for the 30th anniversary of renowned Beer-dive Kafe Belgie in Utrecht, it continues to surprise us and many who drink it. Full bodied, the smoked malts are well embedded in a complex malt bill. Impressive yet drinkable.

Awarded "most appreciated beer Utrecht" 2015



Black IPA || 6.5% || Keg only, bottle expected 04/17 || Available at the Brewpub

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?



Crushable Ale || 4.5% || Keg Only || Available at the brewpub

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.
