Rear side, locked doors. There's a tree growing through the roof.


Front again.


Crates of army hats, I think German.


Hey, it's me. (I actually wanted to make a picture of the inside.)

A car left the neighbouring house and briefly stopped. The good citizen might have called the police so I decided to leave. I left the same way as I came in, over the fence. Lucky timing, because as I walked away from the fence I just had climbed over, an elderly couple just came walking down the street.

Plans are to build houses in this place, they include keeping some of the buildings intact as industrial monument.

Only a few days after I put this report online I got an email from Maarten. He told me they had squatted the officebuilding and were living there now. They even made it to the local newspaper with this.


In August 2003 these posters appeared around the remnants of the old brewery. It's an attempt to keep the brand and the brewery in memory. Hengelo Bier Lives!

Update 2006:
Most buildings have been demolished. The oldest part of the brewery, the brewinghouse which was intended to be renovated, burnt down in july 2005. The grounds are being redeveloped for housing, though plans are to rebuild the brewinghouse and restore the silobuilding and give them a new function, so some industrial heritage will be saved. For more information, check www.debrouwery.nl (dutch).
