Due to the Corona virus, we are forced to close the museum until further notice. Beer has been the most popular alcoholic drink in our regions for a few thousand years. But how is it brewed? What is malts and why is yeast so important? Nationaal Biermuseum De Boom tells you all this with the help of tools, equipment and machines with which 'the golden wet' has been produced for the past two hundred years. Antique means of transport such as a pushcart and an ice-sleigh show how the beer barrels were transported.
