Wow! 2015 is here already.
We hope you can look on a good 2014! We learned a lot and will use that in the coming year.
Life is messy but fun! Sometimes this applies to brewing too
(not to often fortunately, although a lot of cleaning is involved).
This year we had our first public exposure of one of our beers,
who knows what the next year will bring. We keep on brewing and
trying to challenge everyone taste buds. Enjoy!

Our holiday blond that is slightly less blond, a bit more winter flavours.
We wanted to make an easy going, enjoyable Blonde. You can discern a bit of pale ale malt, Saaz and Styrian Goldings hops, a twist of coriander, fermented with a fruity yeast.
While one of our brewers' wife was giving birth to a lovely little girl, the other two brewers decided to go all out on a tripel. All good things come in three, so this beer has three types of malt, three types of hops and three types of fruit. What could possibly go wrong with this combination? To compliment this experiment, it is lagered with oak chips. An exciting and surprisingly good beer that tickles your taste buds. Of course we named this beer after the new addition to the family: Sofie.
This beer was brewed for the first time as a special treat for the traditional New Year's reception. This beer was so well received that we decided to brew this more often. We wanted to brew a Bok with warm caramel flavours of a Dubbel combined with the freshness of a Hefe - Weizen . The Beukende Bock is so named because this brew has a nice punch and because we do not take ourselves too seriously. This Bok has extra wheat and traditional German-Czech hopping. This spicy slightly sweet wheat bok gets the best out of the most essential ingredients that make a beer; malts, hops and yeast. Without artificial frills it nice palate wrapped in a Bok wrapping.
Our first Tripel experiment the Deuterse Donder, was kind of boring. So we decided to add some excitement. Wheat, a little honey, some Simcoe hops. And so the Wheat Triple Deuterse Graaiert was born.
Inspired by the great brewers at Brewdog and their awesome IPA's, we brewed three variant of an india pale ale.
Our first in the series: IEPAA. Brewdate: 12-04-2014. A relatively light Ale with lots and lots of flavours, so you can enjoy this beer multiple times. The first in the series is the IEPAA.
Our second in the series: In Principe Aangenaam. Brewdate: 19-04-2014. A modern IPA that combines the classic English India Pale Ale with American Hops and four different malts, which should give this a slight sweet amber aroma.
Our third and last the series: Nozem. Brewdate: 23-05-2014. A modern and classical mix of an IPA, Nozem is an Ale that combines traditional European hops in a non-tradional way.
We love to brew beers for our friends, and this time we created a Pilsner to enjoy during the upcoming World Championship Soccer (2014). Very tasty, light and savory: A pils with balls.
