Lowlander Botanical Beer Islander Summer Ale

Islander Summer Ale

 STORY

The Healing Island

Sailors who fell ill on Dutch trading ships were left on the Island of Curaçao as they passed. Upon their return they found the sailors had miraculously recovered. Our limited edition Summer Ale uses the secrets of the Islands’ vitamin C rich Curaçao orange & dragonfruit, to create the most replenishing of beers perfect for sipping on the dock of the bay.

INSPIRATION

Inspired by our travels to continental beaches in Europe and slightly more tropical days in the Dutch Antilles we wanted to brew a beer inspired by the Island of Curaçao which would enable explorers to take life a little bit less seriously.

COOL & CRISP WITH TROPICAL FRUITY NOTES
BREWED WITH

Curaçao Orange

Full of colours, flora and fauna, the island of Curaçao is also known for the famous Curaçao Orange. The fruit evolved from a bright orange colour and sweet taste into the green and inedible bitter Curaçao Orange. The peel though is extremely aromatic and refreshing. 

Dragonfruit 

With their shocking fuchsia peels studded with flame-like green scales, it’s not hard to see why pitayas were nicknamed dragonfruit. The dragonfruit is actually one of several cactus species and, just like its relatives, has a succulent stem that provides a uniquely delicious fruit with moisture in the arid climates where it typically grows.

FOOD PAIRING

The Lowlander approach to beer and food pairing is simple: beer is even better with food and food is even better with beer.

Our Islander with its fruity notes and refreshing flavour goes well with nachos, ceviche or BBQ ribs. The taste of the Carribean food stands up to the strong characteristics of our Islander. And what to think of a vegan cauliflower taco? Combine it with our Islander and you will find the perfect match!
