Speculaas is undoubtedly one of our most used words and eaten cookies over the past few months. The initial idea was to brew a beer perfectly for the shorter and colder nights of the winter, brewed with speculaas spices to give it a typical Dutch twist.

Thanks to the confidence of both our loyal and new customers – ordering the beer without even tasting it – our Winter Ale proved so popular that we had to brew a second and even a third batch which is now available in bars and bottle shops. We are sorry that not all of you have been able to try the beer this year but we’re pleased to let you know we’re definitely coming back with a 2018 edition of our Winter Ale.

With the end of the year fast approaching, it’s time to start the countdown to a new year, in the shape of our own Lowlander advent calendar. It has been almost two years since we started our adventure, So from the 6th of December we will start counting down with the alphabet – inspired by the letters on our Winter Ale beer – and share the journey we’re on, our highs and lows and the people we’ve met. A letter for every day, make sure you don’t miss it and follow our journey from 2017 into 2018.
