L Nery Bty Visit To Grolsch Brewery Early 80s

#8
I work about 500 metres from the original brewery site in Groenlo(where it all began).
It's all gone now. They moved the entire brewery to Enschede in 2005.
I had a factory tour in Enschede also. Happy times! :dance:

That's the term! Had to do a bullying enquiry in L Bty in the mid 80s after some ex Gnr complained and this practice featured high in the allegations along with being hung on the hoist at NAAFI Break.

The one on the extreme right of the first 2 pics was a cook, the name escapes me. I remember TD in the Tango shirt well.

All the faces are familiar but the old beer addled memory aint so good anymore!
