Founded in 1998, Brouwerij Nacional Balashi is a full-scale production brewery, one of the most modern breweries in the Caribbean. The Brewery began as a collaboration with local partners and German beer experts who brought their knowledge, technology and the German brewing traditions. The goal of the collaboration was to create a fresh, local island brew made with passion and quality.
For years the brewery only produced its flagship brand named after this area and the brewery, Balashi. Over time the brewery has expanded to offer a line-up of four distinctive beers, each inspired and influenced in one way or another by Aruba’s heritage and way of life. These well-loved local beers are Balashi, Chill, HopiBon and HopiStout.
