The Grolsch Brewery is a Dutch brewery founded in 1615 by Willem Neerfeldt in Groenlo, The town of Groenlo was then known as Grolle, hence the name Grolsch. Grolsch uses a distinctively shaped bottle for some of its products, known as de beugel or 'swingtop'. Bottles of this type use a flip top cap, eliminating the need for an opener.

Over the years the brand identity is updated and re-launched with subtle changes, a change of Logo or a new font.
Sometimes this brand update is done by the new owners after a brewery has been sold, other times just to give the brand a fresh new look on the ever growing market.
Below are some notes to help identify some of these changes and an aid to reference the year of the glass.
