CLOSE TO THE COMMUNITY
À BLOC Beer is brewed close to the sport communities we serve. This reduces transport and that’s so much better for our planet. The recipe for À BLOC is created with our master brewer in The Netherlands, and we work with craft breweries around the world. À BLOC is currently brewed in Australia, South Africa, France, Switzerland and The Netherlands.Get your beers
A Dutch touch
In The Netherlands À BLOC is brewed in Middelburg at ‘Brouwerij Kees‘, where Kees Dubbelman is Head Brewer. ‘Kees’ is an international renowned craft beer brewery. CEO of À BLOC in the Netherlands Martijn Snelder about this cooperation: “Brouwerij Kees represents quality and perfect taste. They have a high rank in the top 100 of ratebeer.com and we are proud that our IPA and Natural Blonde Beer are brewed here.”
Ash Bleeker is Managing director of à BLOC Australia. Ash’s father is born in, you have guessed it already, The Netherlands. Don’t try to talk Dutch with Ash though, more than ‘goedemorgen’ will not come from his mouth. But If you want to have a chat about cycling or craft beer, you’re more than welcome. The Oz version of à BLOC is brewed by Burnley Brewing where Master Brewer Michael Stanzel leads the production team.
Since early 2018 à BLOC is officially registered in South Africa. Our craft beer is brewed in Two Okes Brewery in Johannesburg in the Gauteng province, where Hennie Kloppers is Head brewer. à BLOC business is managed by Oscar Koster, a Dutch national who lives and works in South Africa since more than 20 years. Oscar is a passionate cyclist, both on and off road. If you ask Oscar to summarize a beautiful life, he’ll probably start about the three B’s: bikes, braai and beer. The latter from à BLOC.ALWAYS BE WELL STOCKED
