IT MIGHT SOUND SIMPLE BUT BREWING WITH BOTANICALS IS NO EASY FEAT. FROM DECIDING PRECISELY WHAT FLAVOUR WE WANT TO GET OUT OF OUR HERBS TO ESTABLISHING WHAT QUANTITY WILL CREATE THE PERFECT BALANCE, IT’S A TERRIBLY INTRICATE AFFAIR. WE DON’T WANT TO BORE YOU WITH ALL THE TECHNICAL DETAILS, BUT IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN KNOWING MORE ABOUT THE NITTY GRITTY OF OUR BREWING TECHNIQUES DON’T HESITATE TO GET IN TOUCH. WE’LL BE HAPPY TO CHEW YOU EARS OFF EXPLAING HOW LOWLANDER BEER GETS ITS EXCEPTIONAL FLAVOUR ONE THING WE DO KNOW IS THAT, WHEN IT COMES TO BREWING WITH BOTANICALS, THERE’S ONLY ONE WAY TO FIGURE OUT WHAT WORKS BEST; TRIAL, TEST AND DRINK.
