When we think of Dutch beers we usually think of Heineken a very tasty drop indeed, but poor old Grolsch is just as good and has been very drinkable since 1615. The Grolch bottle would have to be one of the most recognisable bottles in the world with its swing top cap which it calls the Beugel. When researching this beer I came across a weird fact, remember the English pop group Bros, they were around late 1980′s with ‘unforgettable’ songs like Drop the Boy and When will I be famous, well these guys were a bit weird, one of them got engaged to Dannii Minogue, and they wore Grolsch pop tops on their shoes. Maybe the good old beer goggles caused the short lived engagement- who knows?
When you think of Dutch beers Heineken usually comes to mind but Amstel is another very popular beer from the Netherlands which can be found in over 75 countries around the globe. Amstel was first brewed in Amsterdam on the Mauritskade by the Amstelbrowerij or Amstel Brewery which dates back to about 1870. Today the beer is made in quite a few countries around the world and was taken over by Heineken in 1989. Recently Amstel has brought their beer out in a fancy new bottle with molded label and interesting pull top which really makes it stand out from the crowd and inside it is the same fresh tasting beer we love to drink.
