Vers Van De Brouwer

Bottel is a start-up founded mid-2017 that supplies beer fresh from independent craft breweries. Bottel procures beer that is freshly brewed and fills these beers in so-called growlers, characteristic glass bottles of ± 1 liter and for some time also 2 liters of PET refill bottles for Heineken’s home tap (The SUB).

Bottel fills these craft beers every week so that beer lovers always drink crispy fresh beer, exactly as the brewer intended! As beer is a natural product, the fresher you drink it, the better it tastes. You experience the smell and taste of yeast, hops, grains and other rich flavors.

Bottel pays a lot of attention and energy to ensure that the quality of the beer is optimal and that the growler looks perfect. Not only does Bottel have to meet the quality requirements of the beer lovers who buy the Bottels, it is just as important that the brewers, of which Bottel packs the beer, can be confident that their beer ends up in optimum condition with the beer drinker!

Bottel currently consists of a team of 6 people and a number of experienced people that help on specific areas. A nice mix of characters and experiences.

Bottel has an internship position for a student mechanical engineering.
