With the Swinkels family comes brewing beer. For centuries the two have been inseparable. To this extraordinary story, Swinckels’ adds a new chapter. When the 7th generation Swinkels took over from the 6th, the idea was born to celebrate the transition with a special pilsner, that is worthy of our brewing tradition. We used Cascade hop from the Yakima valley in the United States and Polaris hop from Hallertau. Then we combined these special hops with the yeast ultivated especially for the family. We felt this would work. A matter of experience and especially intuition. This made Swinckels’ what it is; an outspoken, superior pilsner, with a fresh, refined taste. That’s how we do things; by disregarding convention, trusting our gut feel. Probably the reason we’re the only sizeable brewery in the Netherlands that is still family owned.
