Celebrating the best in contemporary (and not-so-contemporary) culture, around the world
Canvas was launched to cover and celebrate the best and most interesting culture from around the world, ignoring borders and convention along the way. We cover everything, be it a brilliant filmmaker from Montreal, photographer from Bogota or music producer from Amsterdam; be it a treasure trove of unknown 1970s polaroids, or the most cutting edge graphic design.
The Netherlands has long been the home of creativity and freer-thinking. It gave us Bas Jan Ader, the provocative and heartbreaking performance Dutch artist; it gave us Provo, the radical group who initiated the first ever bicycle sharing scheme; it gave us the pop-functional furniture of Rietveld, and the brilliant but less-than-functional architecture of Aldo Van Eyck. It gave us countless movies, paintings, buildings and songs. And, of course, it gave us Grolsch, the two-hop brewers who've always sought to invest back into that culture of untrammelled creativity, who've always chosen interesting over conventional, and brilliant over boring.
For 400 years we have believed in the power of creative expression and independent thinking. And below you can find out how those qualities show up in our distinctive and bold beer.
We hope you enjoy the distinctive taste of Grolsch as much as we love brewing it. We owe our four century history and superb quality to the Craftmanship and Artistry of our skilled brewers and the selection of the finest all natural ingredients.
When the new Grolsch brewery was built, the Master Brewers demanded that the original source of natural, soft spring water remain in use – hence we built a 7km long water pipe to keep drawing water from the original source to ensure the original Grolsch taste remained intact.

Brewed in Holland Since 1615
At Grolsch we have always aimed for ‘Vakmanschap is meesterschap’ – Dutch for Craftmanship & Artistry – and doing things a little different from the rest.
