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 and RUIG, merged. These two breweries already exported to 30+ countries. Now Oproer beers are becoming 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. 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) and Fat Heads (USA).
In the brewpub brewing installation we brew experimental beers, including the Lab Series. In the same space we also have our organic restaurant that uses 100% plant-based ingredients.
To keep up with demand we have built a 21 BBL (25hl) brewing system about 15 minutes drive from the brewpub. Currently we are able to make around 100hl a month. We also contract brew for some of our friends.
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 Coin Toss Brewing.
