UDB was created in 1968 by Allied Breweries through the merger of two of the oldest breweries in Holland: ‘De Drie Hoefijzers’ in Breda, of which the roots go back to 1538 and ‘De Oranjeboom’ in Rotterdam, established in 1671.
In 2008, UDB was carved out from AB Inbev and became an independent company again.
“…We know all about beer. Beer is our business. Since the founding of our first brewery in 1538 in The Netherlands we have been serving our beers to consumers all over the world.
Through the centuries, we have developed from a classical brewery into an independent supplier of all major European beer styles. United Dutch Breweries has created and uses its own high quality brewery network throughout Europe…”
