Welcome to the Naked Brewers (de naeckte brouwers)

Are we "exposing" ourselves?   No, at least not literally.  We are actually "naked" in the sense of purity and honesty.  Our beers are well balanced as we are using pure and natural ingredients; modest and yet refined. The secret is our passion and love in the craft and ultimately the ratio and balance of the ingredients, where less is more.  On top of that, also our dedication and patience, on how each type of beer is brewed.

We use no additives.  We brew our beers only with water, barely malt, wheat malt, rye malt, oats, hops (candy) sugar and yeast. All our beers are unfiltered and not pasturized to keep maximum tast, top fermented with a secondary fermentation in bottles or kegs. Store our bottles upright and drink at a temperture of aproximately 10 degrees Celsius.

Since 2013 we have our own brewery in Amstelveen and since the end of November 2017 a tasting room in the former Annakerk on the Amsterdamseweg 22 in Amstelveen

Enjoy to the upmost, but drink in moderation ...

Who are the Naked Brewers (de naeckte brouwers)?

They are friends who share their interests and passion, and who are true Burgundians.

Michel Lagrand

Michel is interested in everything that has to do with food and drinks and is always a critical taster. "It is always a challenge to give every beer its own character, where you always search for a difference in balance between the sweetness and the bitterness."

Jan Albert (Ab) van der Veen
As a designer, Ab applies his creativity skills in not only the research and development (R&D) of the beers, but also for the constant adjustment and improvement to the brewing equipment. "Sometimes you have to think out of the box in order to come to a surprising result."

Together we complement and keep each other in balance in producing high quality handcrafted beers.

Start Crowd Funding campaign for new brewery in Annakerk

We have the chance to establish a second brewery with tasting room at the most beautiful place in Amstelveen, the former Annakerk at the Amsterdamseweg. In this atmospheric church from 1927 we enter into a partnership with Heem Location Rental and ANNA tasting room to create a unique meeting place for everyone with a nice mix of social and cultural activities. Space for a brewery, tasting room with Naeckte Brouwers beer and (local) delicacies, exhibition space for (local / starting) artists, music and theater stage, events and location rentals.

The tasting room is already open, but the new in-house brewery can only be realized if we receive extra financial support. We therefore ask everyone who cares about us, to help make this dream come true and to participate in our crowd funding campaign. This is already possible from 250, - Euro.

More information can be found on our
crowd funding page or at the website


Opening hours

ANNA is open on Friday and Saturday from 15:00 till 23:00 and Sunday from 15:00 till 20:00 hour.

On Thursday evening we will soon be deploying concerts, theater, cabaret, recitals or other activities. It may be that a small amount of entrance fee has to be paid for this. See our agenda for the activities.

On the website of ANNA or the Facebook page you can find more information about adjusted opening times and events.

Address: Amsterdamseweg 22, Amstelveen

Our Tasting Room ANNA is open!

On November 24, we opened our own tasting room ANNA in the former Annakerk at Amsterdamseweg 22 in Amstelveen. Here you can taste our regular beers and some beers brewed exclusively for the tasting room, accompanied with a simple bite. In addition, at ANNA there is plenty of room for creative and entertaining initiatives such as the pop stage, theater, art exhibitions, talk show, language café, workshops, etc.

Every Sunday afternoon we organise “acoustic live” where a (local) artist or singer-/songwriter will perform live on our small stage.

It is our goal to also brew the Naeckte beers in the church from May 2018. From then you will have a nice view at the brewery and fermentation tanks from the tasting room.
