The Dutch have been drinking beer for centuries. First we imported it from Germany and then we started to brew ourselves. Amsterdammers have always loved the golden drink and drank beer instead of water for a long long time.
When you think of Dutch beer, most people will think about Heineken. Heineken is Holland’s most famous beer brand. This 3rd largest beerbrewer in the world once started in Amsterdam. Other famous Dutch beer brands are Amstel (also owned by Heineken), Dommelsch, Grolsch, Brand, Bavaria and Hertog Jan.
Original authentic local beers
In Amsterdam it’s now no longer cool to drink Heineken. Local craft beers and special beers have won in popularity. The city is home to 43 local beerbrewers (and Heineken is no longer part of them, since they moved away). The last 5 years more than 30 new beer brands have started brewing their own Dutch beer, mostly organic and special beers like IJ Beer are very popular for the locals to drink.
