The Brewery

Bavaria Brewers have over 300 years of experience… & passion!

Bavaria is the second largest brewery in the Netherlands. Founded before 1680, it has been owned by the Swinkels family since 1773. The company, which produces seven hundred million litres of beer annually, is based in Lieshout, North Brabant.

At Bavaria, sustainability is extremely important. Since 1978, we have had our own water purification system and we have been producing our own energy for years, with which we would be able to provide at least 18,000 homes with energy.

Pure mineral water from our own source

Beer is mostly water, so that water needs to be top quality H2O. That’s why we’re proud to be the only ones in Holland to use naturally pure water from our own source.

Only the finest hops

Purchased from a handpicked selection of farmers, blesses us with a delicious, refreshing beer.

Malt from our own malt house

To be able to guarantee you the finest quality, Bavaria is one of the few breweries to malt their own barley.
