Who gives a monkey?
Dutch seafarers returning from the east would often bring back monkeys, which they would sell to tavern-keepers to pay off drinking debts. Our ipa, with its hints of botanicals and spice, is a tribute to those sailors’ spirit of adventure and quick thinking.
We love IPA’s and set about making our own; an ‘Indonesian’ IPA, inspired by Dutch expeditions to the far east we use some of the rich botanicals found in these faraway lands.
CITRUSY, FRUITY AND BITTER WITH A REFRESHING, LINGERING SPICE
Known as ‘ketoembar’ in Indonesian. We grind the seeds, which have a citrusy flavour when crushed, to add freshness and a spicy note to the beer.
Asian white tea is the rarest and most delicate of all teas. It gives our IPA an aromatic sweetness and lingering finish.
BREWED WITH CORIANDER & WHITE TEA
Crushing on Coriander
It’s the spicy coriander seed we use to add a floral note to our IPA. We grind the coriander seeds and add it to the boil which makes for a more drinkable beer. Why? Well, we’re not quite sure but that may just be why our refreshing IPA is ever so popular.
Wondrous White Tea
Obsessed with the quality of the white tea in our IPA, we settled with a type which is as rare as they get. Rumor has it that the leaf is only picked at night and then immediately dried by moonlight rather than the traditional sun-dried technique.

ABOUT BOTANICAL BREWING

The Lowlander approach to beer and food pairing is simple: beer is even better with food and food is even better with beer.
Our IPA with its citrusy, fruity and bitter flavour goes well with all kinds of Asian food. The intensity of a tasty pork belly bun stands up to the strong characteristics of our IPA and allows for a complex finish. And what to think of an Indonesian satay? The Indonesian version tends to be a bit sweeter than other varieties due to the use of ginger in both the marinade and the peanut sauce. Our Lowlander I.P.A. cuts the richness of the creamy, spicy peanut sauce.
It’s time to expand your horizons if you tend to only drink beer straight from the bottle. There’s an exciting world of beertails waiting to be explored.
The Lowlander beers are all about bravery and botanicals, so are the Lowlander beertails. They combine the best of both worlds: liqueur and beer – win win. The result is a smooth, brave blend of beverages, perfect for anytime, really.
