About Grolsch Premium Lager
In the seventeenth century (Holland's Golden Age, when its Guilds became influential), the professional brewer was highly esteemed. A famous Dutch Master Brewer named Peter Cuyper of Grolle (present day Groenlo), was the first recorded owner of the famous Grolsch brewery, founded in 1615. In 1677, Cuyper was appointed Guild Master of all brewers in Grolle. He introduced his fellow-brewers to the best brewing methods and handed down secrets of brewing great beer to the younger generations. Peter Cuyper was responsible for refining the natural method of beer brewing. We still use his methods at Grolsch to the present day, almost four centuries later.
