Went here for a tasting with my sister and brother in law as a birthday gift. The building itself is new and quite modern. Most of the brewery is visible from the brewpub itself. Nice selection of beers on tap; their standard selection, some collabs, quests and exclusives/experimentals. During the tasting each beer was served with it's own matching cheese. At the end of the tasting the whole pub was filled with, surprisingly enough, families with children playing all sorts of card games. Nice to see the future generation of potential beer geeks already having fun there. If I'm ever in the area of Utrecht, I'd visit again.

Moden brewpub in their brewery. Large selection of their own beers, plus some guests. Flights are available, but a little bit pricy. Very friendly service. Worth the detour to try some solid Maximus beers at the source.
Medium-sized brewpub with a minimalistic, modern and slightly industrial style. I think they had about twenty beers on tap, most of them by their own, but also a handful of guests. All the standards were available, but also a lot of specials, even some that have already aged. They can be ordered in 20, 25 and 50 cl, and a tasting flight of four beers can be ordered as well. Usually, it contains only some of the standards, but you might be lucky if you ask for some changes. Prices are just okay, and the staff appeared to be very friendly and was making me feel welcome. Snacks and some more sophisticated food is also available, can be quite expensive though. Other than that, I can only recommend to come here if you are in town!
Visited on a sunny Wednesday afternoon. Located in a suburb of Utrecht, not the most inspiring location but somehow you don’t notice when you sit on their sunny patio. Inside is relatively spacious, not enormous. Lots of wood, brewing stuff and some equipment visible, large bar. It’s all nicely decorated, it breathes beer & brewing. Friendly staff, decent prices. They sell sample trays for €10 (4 samples). Beers are decent, but alas not something to go out of your way for. However, when in the area, make sure to visit this place.
Visited on my way to Bodegraven, somewhat hidden behind a lrage building to the right if you drive up the parkinglot. Could buy a sixpack of different beers, prices both on tap and sixpack where decent. service was friendly. ok place to visit if you are in the area.

They have a wide selection of Maximus beers on tap, but that is all they have. The "proeverijtje" is a nice feature: you can taste 4 tap beers for 10 euro’s. The location and service are just fine. When we were there (sunday afternoon) it was crowded with children though and very noisy. Nice place to go when you’re around, but not worth the visit from the city center.
Maximus has some pretty decent beers and this is a nice (fairly large) brewpub, actually one of the largest I’ve seen in the Netherlands. On the outskirts of Utrecht, a 15 min bus ride from central station. Well worth a visit. Good food too.
