Eurobrouwers: Breathing New Life into Schiedam’s Distillers District

Eurobrouwers: Breathing New Life into Schiedam’s Distillers District

ROTTERDAM, 2 June 2023 – Housed within a former glass factory in Schiedam's Distillers District, Eurobrouwers – a novel brewpub and restobar concept – has made its debut. A tribute to the European beer tradition and culture, it serves up in-house brewed beer and a varied menu in an industrious, authentic setting.

The charm of Eurobrouwers

In Schiedam, Eurobrouwers occupies a distinctive spot in the heart of the Distillers District. Once a factory producing bottles for prominent gin and beer brands, the site is now home to Schiedam's first brewpub (brewpub in Dutch: brouwerij en restobar), where beer is brewed on an extensive terrace within an industrial hall complete with both indoor and outdoor kitchens.

Echoes of European beer tradition

Eurobrouwers draws its name and identity from the rich European beer tradition. Long tables, beer gardens, wooden beer barrels, and simple classic dishes evoke images of French brasseries, Eastern European kitchens, and the wider European cultural heritage.

From 17 June, Eurobrouwers will offer a selection of classic house-brewed beers. Patrons can sample beers crafted by head brewer Coen Wooldrik, available in various sizes, including small tasting glasses, at the bar which boasts an expansive tap wall and a wide assortment of bottled and draught beers.

Diverse food pairings

The beers are paired with a broad range of small and large dishes. Special features include a focus on barbecue during the summer months, featuring Polish Kielbasa sausages and BBQ Chorizo, among other dishes. Every Sunday, Eurobrouwers serves Zeeland oysters at one euro, coupled with wild beers.

Eurobrouwers brewpub: a unique feature in Schiedam

Eurobrouwers finds itself nestled among famed Schiedam distilleries like Nolet, De Kuyper, Onder de Boompjes, and Loopuyt. These gins find their place in the menu, often paired with Eurobrouwers' own beer – the traditional Dutch drink known as a 'kopstoot' (headbutt).

Embracing modularity and material reuse

Eurobrouwers is located on the grounds of De Glasfabriek, a former industrial complex sandwiched between Schiedam and Rotterdam. The temporary character of the location has inspired the implementation of a modular hospitality concept that can easily be relocated. The brewpub uses upcycled materials almost exclusively, from the bar to the brewing setup. This decision has facilitated an independent and cost-effective setup, ensuring that the venue remains accessible to a wide audience.


Eurobrouwers is situated at Buitenhavenweg 142, 3113 BE Schiedam. The area is steeped in industrial charm and is close to the heart of the old gin city. Surrounded by historic distilleries and vibrant eateries, Eurobrouwers is easily accessible by public transport and offers a unique culinary experience in Schiedam.
