You say ‘porter’. We say ‘Poorter’
Some say the beer known as ‘porter’ is of Dutch origin. ‘poorter’ was long favoured by hard-working labourers for its hearty and refreshing taste. Our Poorter celebrates the haul of exotic botanicals, by poorters from the dockside into Amsterdam warehouses. Climb aboard!
Whether Poorter was or wasn’t born in the Lowlands, when conceiving ours we wanted a robust Poorter with an edge. The addition of both vanilla and liquorice (a long favoured flavour in the Lowlands) creates something smooth, bold and unapologetically Dutch.
ROBUST WITH SWEETNESS & DEPTH
Robust Poorters can be a little dry so we use vanilla to add valuable sweetness. It works in harmony with the sharp bitterness of black malt.
Brewing with liquorice root brings a unique earthy depth and sweetness to our Poorter which is ‘typically Dutch’.
BREWED WITH LIQUORICE ROOT & VANILLA
Love that Liquorice
At Lowlander Beer we’re big fans of liquorice, and love how it adds such depth of flavour to our dark yet refreshing Poorter. We refine this traditionally hearty brew with a heady hit of vanilla too, making for a uniquely sweet finish.
Not so plain Vanilla
To describe our deep Poorter as ‘vanilla’ would be misleading indeed. We use the precious pods of the vanilla flower where all the intoxicating sweetness is held. After much experimentation, we carefully add the extract from the pod to the final maturation process of this hearty brew.

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.
We don’t know about you, but we like our brownies gooey and rich. The soggier the better they match our Lowlander Poorter. The sweetness and depth of our beer balances the bold flavour of this chocolate dessert. But also a warming cheese raclette works well with our Poorter, it cuts through creamy cheese dishes.
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.
