Amstel is a crisp tasting premium lager, perfect for your next get-together with family or friends. For almost 150 years, Amstel has brewed a high quality beer that has the perfect balance of taste and refreshment. With a unique honey malt aroma, Amstel delivers a subtle citrus and herbal hop character with a clean bitter finish. Amstel pairs perfectly with simple dishes such as Thai red curry or chicken salad.
In 1870, Charles de Pesters & Johannes van Marwijk Kooij felt that the bier available to the people of Amsterdam simply was not good enough.
They looked to the Bavarian pilsner brew techniques to create a bier with more depth and flavour – one that would surpass the thin, top fermented beers of the day.
That year, the Amstel Brewery was built on Mauritskade in Amsterdam. Now, almost 150 years later, not only the Dutch, but people from all over the world know the excellent quality of Amstel®.
