Brewery Het Nest

Now more than ten years ago, a group of friends started a beer tasting club. Every two weeks they came together at one of their homes to drink a good Belgian beer and to discuss beer, women and football. During the years the interest in beer grew. This resulted in following brewing courses in 2007.

From that year on, they started “Hobbybrouwerij Het Nest (Home Brewery the Cradle)”. Their first success was a third place at the Open Dutch Championship for home brewers in the “triple” class.

The recipe for Queen of Diamonds was first developed in 2011. The occasion was the creation of a beer to celebrate the festivities Turnhout 2012. The original recipe contained Amarillo hops. But because it was scarce in 2012, we opted for Cascade hops. The latter gives a citrus aroma. This adapted recipe was used to brew the Turnhoutse Patriot. At 2014, we still a missed a lady in our "high street" and had no diamonds symbol in our range, the choice was obvious: Queen of Diamonds
