Brewery as a Tipping Guide Example
As of winter 2019, the island of Vlieland (Fryslan, The Netherlands) will have its own brewery. Only local ingredients such as oyster filet, seaweed, dune herbs and Vlieland’s own high-quality natural dune water will be used. The location, annex to a special protected nature area, has been granted by the local nature governance organization, “Staatsbosbeheer”. Small theatre and film productions and performances will be integrated into the activities of the brewery. Due to a substantial regional grant from the “Waddenfonds”, and support from many local organizations, the island-based entrepreneur Bojan Bajic, with support from colleagues from the Frisian mainland, has been able to develop this unique local produce annex local nature and culture experience.
