About Grolsch

Grolsch's history stretches back to 1615, making it one of the oldest companies in the Netherlands. The company brews only beer and through the years has grown into one of the Netherlands' strongest leading brands, as well as gaining respect further afield.

The company employs some 750 staff both in the Netherlands and abroad, and since 1995 has been entitled to use the predicate 'Koninklijk' (Dutch for 'Royal'). In 2004 Grolsch officially opened an entirely new brewery, located to the south-west of the city of Enschede, replacing its previous brewery in northern Enschede (built in 1895) and its original base in Groenlo (built in 1615). At this new, highly efficient facility, Grolsch uses the very latest technology to brew beer according to traditional methods, using natural ingredients. For the master craftsman, this state-of-the-art facility is the perfect toolset!
