Ask Real Beer

May 2000

Years ago I used to drink a Dutch beer called Brand. It came in a bottle painted white. I've been trying to find it in my area (Washington, DC) but no luck. I've been to the Brand website, but it's in Dutch! Do you know if Brand is still being imported into the US, and if so, who's doing the importing?

From Beer Dave: The Brand brewery was sold to the large Dutch brewer Grolsch. At this time Brand is not shipped to the United States. They had a great gift set that came with a mug, opener, and those milk white bottles. The Christoffel brewery in Holland is run by a relative of the Brand family.
