De Plukker brewery is an independant craft brewery based in Poperinge, the only hop producing region in Belgium. About 25 hop farms total an estimated 160 hectares, earning Poperinge the title of "Hop Capital" of Belgium.
Our brewery stands out because we are based on one of these hop farms. We are not a brewery with a little hopfield on the side, we are a hop farm with a brewery beside the field! Only our own hops are used to brew our beers.
All hops grown on the hopfarm are certified organic and in the brewery we only brew organic beers. De Plukker stands for 100% organic and 100% hops from the own farm. Cheers!
A "plukker" is a person employed to pick hops.
