Stadshaven Brouwerij opens terrace at Merwehaven Rotterdam

ROTTERDAM, 6 May 2022 - Fancy a freshly tapped beer on the largest terrace in Rotterdam's Merwehaven? The Stadshaven Brouwerij has recently opened its brand-new terrace. Besides the brewery's own craft beer, you can also have a full dining experience. Dishes include vegan options and steak from the charcoal grill. 
Director Harm van Deuren talks about this new Rotterdam addition: "It was time to give the terrace the same allure as the brewery and gastropub. The location on the quay is perfect for this: it is an astonishingly large space, and the view over the water is amazing! The sunsets we see from our terrace are spectacular. Together we rolled up our sleeves and worked very hard to make this terrace the new hotspot on the Rotterdam Maas. Now our guests can enjoy this beautiful outdoor space."

The new hotspot at Rotterdam's Merwehaven

Stadshaven Brouwerij's terrace is located at the Merwehaven, in Rotterdam's famous Makers District. The hustle and bustle of the port means there is always something to see from the terrace. Pilot boats are constantly coming and going, and the water taxi stops right in front of the door. With an ideal south-facing location, guests are provided with sunshine all day long. The terrace covers a whopping 750 square metres and has room for 300 guests. The large, central outdoor bar provides patrons with in-house brewed craft beers. There is an extensive menu for every taste; whether that's vegan creations or steak from the charcoal grill. On the terrace, visitors can also have some fun by playing a game of cornhole (a kind of pétanque without sand).

Stadshaven Brouwerij

The Stadshaven Brouwerij is a craft beer brewery of a size that only a few breweries in the Netherlands can match: 2 million litres of beer are brewed and bottled, canned or cask filled every year. This makes the Stadshaven Brewery the second-largest craft beer brewery in the Netherlands. Located in Merwe-Vierhavens (M4H), which is undergoing redevelopment, the Stadshaven Brewery is constantly looking for new ways to contribute to the quality of life, circularity, sustainability and the social dynamics of the area. These include heat recovery in the brewing process, reuse of waste water, solar panels, use of batteries from scrapped scooters and the provision of brewage (residual product of the brewing process) for cows from the nearby floating farm. The craft beers are inspired by the location of the Stadshaven Brewery; the brewery is located in a 100-year-old (fully restored) fruit shed in the former Rotterdam Fruit Port.  Besides guided tours of the brewery, guests can also visit the Stadshaven Gastropub, where all in-house brewed (special) beers, beer cocktails and innovative beer and food combinations are served.
