Kompaan (mate) is an authentic Hague beer brewery with a bar annex tasting room, hidden away in Binckhorsthaven. At this industrial location with a terrace and beautiful view of the inner harbour and its factories, two partners, Jasper and Jeroen, realized their dream in 2015: brewing typically Hague beers. Not only beers with names such as Bondgenoot (Ally) and Bloedbroeder (Blood Brother) originate from Kompaan in The Hague; in the Craft Beer Bar you can also enjoy dozens of beers brewed on the spot four days a week accompanied by delicious dishes such as brisket and pulled pork with home-made barbecue sauce. Highly recommended for beer lovers and anyone looking for a typically Hague insider tip!
The Kompaan beers offer a comprehensive palette of flavours. Each beer that Kompaan brews contains several kinds of malts and hops. The Hague microbrewery has a handful of permanent beers in its range: from dry hopped pilsner to an imperial stout with port. Every season, Kompaan brings a season beer onto the market. In addition to these beers, the local brewery has unique special editions that age in wooden vats: Barrel Aged specialty beers. Whisky, bourbon or gin vats are primarily used for these strong and dark Kompaan beers. They are usually sold in small batches, so be sure to visit the Kompaan brewery shop to take advantage of these special flavour sensations.
