From this small Dutch brewpub situated on an island in southwestern Holland we bring you the extraordinary creations of brewmaster Kees Bubberman.

Prior to running the show at Emelisse, Kees, then a chef, was widely regarded around the Dutch beer geek circuit as the best homebrewer in the country. Running joke was that in any beer competition Kees entered, everyone else was fighting for 2nd prize.

He established a well-earned reputation as a first-rate artisanal brewer, and the Emelisse brewpub came calling. Under his direction, Emelisse is now at the cutting edge of the craft-brewing scene in Europe, producing some of the finest, most innovative beers you’ll find anywhere.

Their beers run the gamut from obligatory craft brewing staples such as an IPA, Double IPA, & Imperial Stout, to more boundary-pushing creations ranging from a Bowmore-Aged Imperial Black & Tan, to a 2.5% abv IPA, to a 25% ice-distilled version of their Imperial Stout.

Regardless of the style, however, the hand-craftsmanship of each Emelisse beer is undeniable, and has planted this small Dutch brewery firmly on the map of the best Europe has to offer.
