At Bavaria, we're proud to be one of the last truly global independent family owned premium brewers left in the world. We're still owned by one family, the Swinkels, who have been perfecting the art of crafting a great beer since 1719. And we're still based in the same village we started brewing in almost 300 years ago.

Every bottle of Bavaria you see in the United Kingdom is brewed by the family, in the small Dutch village of Lieshout. Because we think it tastes better that way. If you're looking for authenticity, for heritage, for history, and for independence, then we think you might like what we do.
