Oproer brewery was founded early 2016 by Bart-Jan Hoeijmakers and Mark Strooker and is located in Utrecht, The Netherlands. Oproer brewery came about when two breweries from Utrecht, Rooie Dop (2012) and RUIG (2013), merged. These two breweries already exported to 30+ countries and were founded in 2012. Now Oproer beers are becoming more and more nationally and internationally available.
Sustainability, respect for the environment and animals and Do-It-Yourself attitude are important values to us. We put our creativity into brewing beers that we want to drink ourselves and hope to inspire others to do the same.
What we brew
To keep up with demand we have built a 20 BBL (25hl) brewing system about 10 minutes drive from the pub.
We also contract brew for some of our friends. In our small brewing kit we brew experimental beers, experimenting with wild yeasts, bacteria and fruit.
You can find a list of our current beers on Untappd. In total we made about 200 different beers altogether.
Oproer often collaborates with other brewers, for example Oersoep, Van Moll, Brew By Numbers (UK), Buxton (UK), Gigantic (USA), Hair Of The Dog (USA), Deschutes (USA), Breakside (USA), Base Camp (USA), Little Beast (USA), Lompoc (USA) and Fat Heads (USA).
Brewing in the USA
We were already exporting to the United States of America, but we didn’t like the impact it had on the environment. That’s why we are currently producing our core beers in Oregon with the help of our friends from Lompoc.
We are proud of our labels. They are made by Robèrt Guérain.
