Stadshaven Brouwerij (Galileistraat 24, 3029 AM Rotterdam)

Savor the evening and dance the night away at a unique waterfront gastropub! Stadshaven Brouwerij provides a special combination of brewery, hospitality and experience. Join us and create cherished memories!

Since opening in 2021, this place is the second largest independent brewery in the Netherlands. In the 100-year-old, fully restored fruit warehouse of more than 5,000 m2, they annually brew almost 2 million litres of craft beer. This brand new and state of the art brewery offers a setting you won’t find anywhere else, a bold combination of a trendy interior and an industrial setting. Nothing beats an event amongst the kettles brewing the beers you are currently enjoying.

This program is an optional social event and it is not part of the registration fee. Tickets are available for 75 EUR.
If you have already registered for the congress, but not the party, you can order a ticket via email.
