Our Story

Welcome at Heaps of Hops, the Amsterdam based craft brewing company.

We make real and honest craft beers. We brew with the best ingredients, being just water, barley, hops and yeast. Our beers are full flavour crafts, but easy on alcohol. By using lots of hops in our receipes the taste is as you would expect of a passionately crafted beer!

So, what's Heaps? Heaps is Australian slang, often used to say there is a lot of something. They use it for almost anything, such as 'heaps of stars', 'heaps of fun' and 'heaps cool'.

It was in Australia where the idea for Heaps of Hops beers was born during a round the world motorbike trip in 2016. After drinking many local beers and tasting some great lower alcohol beers, the idea for Heaps of Hops came to life. By brewing with lower quantity of malts and using lots of aromatic hops we have been able to make some great tasting beers. And they won't knock you down after you've had a few.

We bring you real, honest & easy beer.

 Cheers!

Heaps of Hops.
