De Struise Brouwers (Brewery Deca & 't Oud Schooltje)
These amateur experts - the name means the 'Sturdy Brewers' - were voted as 'the best brewers in the world' by an American internet poll in which no fewer than 6,000 other brewers took part. Their most well-known brews are legendary Black Albert ( a dark stout), Pannepot and Struise Witte/Rosse. De Struise Brouwers is a relatively small-scale operation and 90% of their production is exported, mainly to America ans Scandinavia. Happily, the remaining 10% is available for domestic consumption.
