Poorter

 STORY

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!

INSPIRATION

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

Lowlander Poorter flavour bar

BREWED WITH

Vanilla
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.

Liqourice root
Brewing with liquorice root brings a unique earthy depth and sweetness to our Poorter which is ‘typically Dutch’.

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.

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.
