Beers was a municipality from 1814 to 1994, but today it is a village in the municipality of Cuijk. The village is close to the river Maas and has about 1700 inhabitants. The village has always lived in agriculture and animal husbandry and in 1949, artificial insemination (K.I.) was first introduced in the Netherlands for the first time and a K.I. station was established. More about this can be found in the National Animal Husbandry Museum at the old K.I. station.
Beers was an independent parish under the Dekenaat Cuijk with a medieval church dating back to the 15th century dedicated to Saint Lambertus. After the church was inaugurated in 1648 by the Reformed, the churches returned to their church in neglected state in 1801. A new, neo-Gothic crossbase was built, initiated in 1891. The 15th century tower was preserved during the demolition of the medieval church. The tower was raised and got a new hint. In the cemetery there are a number of historical graves, a pie and a calvarie group that, like the church, are classified as a national monument. One of the many national monuments in Beers is Huis Ossenbroek (a castle) with its courtyard.
The village is surrounded by farming, but to the north the influence of the Beerse Maas is noticeable. There are still a few pieces of trout forest to be found next to extensive fields and many pee. A large part of the area north of Beers has been excavated since 1960 to the Kraaijenbergse Plassen. Here is a lot of water tourism on the dozens of beaches and in the marinas. Originally, 'Kraaij' is only a small outskirts of the Meuse, it was not believed that this would ever reach Beers. Meanwhile, the village is on the water and the Kraaij is expanding.
