Brouwerij Smisje Johan Brandt, with a passion for excellent good beer, started this tiny artisanal brewery end of 1995. In the beginning he brewed only once a week with a capacity of 120 liters (1 barrel). By 1999 he started brewing twice a week with an increased capacity of 160 liters (1.5 barrels), meaning non stop brewing, bottling, washing bottles throughout the year. He is now looking for a bigger brewery where he can brew 700 liters (6 barrels) at a time and fill the bottles automatically. Johan Brandt, also a bee-keeper, started out with only one type of beer, a honey beer called 't Smisje. He now produces 6 permanent beers.
