‘History meets innovation at the brewery’.
Enjoy the breath-taking ambiance of Jopenkerk Haarlem: a modern city brewery with a strong focus on development. This former church of Jakobskerk, built in 1911, was transformed into a brewery in 2010. Since then, Haarlem’s local Jopenbier is made right between the grand café and restaurant. Jopen brewery has a rich history that goes back to the 14th century, when Haarlem was growing into one of Holland’s main brewery cities. These breweries produced at full speed until the last one closed in 1916 and Haarlem’s fame ended. It all changed again in 1994, when some of the city’s original recipes from 1407 and 1501 were rediscovered in the city archives. These recipes have been used as the basis for reintroducing the first ‘Jopen beers’. Since the Jopenkerk opened its doors, this local beer has found a home here. And it’s open to anyone every day.
The grand café is the perfect place for a reception with a coffee, tea or casual lunch. Many days end here as well with an elaborate drink. The alluring restaurant on the first floor allows for a (closed) dinner with a view on the copper brewing kettles. Or would you prefer a more enclosed space for a smaller group? The ground floor has de Pastorie (‘the presbytery’), which is very suitable for meetings, brainstorm sessions, presentations, tastings or a private drink.
