Hertog Jan (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈɦɛrtɔx ˈjɑn]) is a brewery in the Netherlands. Originally Hertog Jan was a brand only, owned by distributor De Kikvorsch in Deest. Under this brand several types of beer were released, of which the top-fermenting beers were all made at the Arcense Stoombierbrouwerij in Arcen. In the early 1980s the brewery had played a major role in the revival of beer culture in the Netherlands. In 1995 it became part of the international Interbrew (later InBev, now Anheuser–Busch InBev) group and in 1998 was renamed to Hertog Jan Brouwerij. The brewery is named after John I, Duke of Brabant.
