‘Work, patience and craftsmanship are the key ingredients if you want to brew a traditional beer’

Arno Kooy – co-founder of De Prael

Thirteen years ago, we hatched a plan to combine working with people facing obstacles in the job market, with brewing beer. And De Prael is about so much more than just beer. One person might work seven days, another might work seven minutes, but everyone is part of the same big family. Working with people and with beer has turned out to be a brilliant combination.


In the past years, Brouwerij de Prael has been made possible through the support of various funds, namely:

Stichting Doen
Anton Jurgensfonds
Start Foundation
VSB fonds
Oranje fonds
