Up until 2013, Breugem beer operated with a brewery at a location elsewhere in the Zaanstreek. That location, run as a foundation for people within distance to the labour market, had to close. Patrick Breugem, not the owner of the foundation but creator of the name, wished to brew and sell beer. He sought a partner who could mainly focus on the brand and business of brewing and found it in Paul Riteco, who founded Brewery Hoop.
