    Iconic brewery in Mons-en-Barœul

    Hauts-de-France is home to one of the largest plants operated by Heineken, ranked as the no. 1 beer maker in Europe and no. 2 worldwide.

    The Mons-en-Barœul brewery—located northeast of Lille—reflects the region’s long beer-making tradition. Founded in 1921, it was acquired by Dutch group Heineken in 1986 and has been in the news ever since. Today it is Heineken’s largest French brewery, with a 274-strong workforce and annual output topping 3.2 million hectoliters. 

    Capacity on the rise

    Pride in these robust regional roots is reflected in steady investments to upgrade equipment and boost capacity in recent years. With over 130 beers now in production, the group has just installed a new line at Mons-en-Barœul to expand its Desperados label. The brewery is expected to recruit some 20 new employees and produce an additional 250,000 hectoliters starting this year.
