Lowlander Botanical Beers Winter IPA

Winter I.P.A.

 STORY

Spruce it up. 

Last winter we asked Lowlanders to gift us their well-loved Christmas trees instead of throwing them out on the street as rubbish. Sprucing up “waste” into something delicious we collected their trees, stripped the spruce needles & brewed them with juniper into a sustainable Winter White IPA. The aroma recalls evergreen forests and the hoppy & light citrus character brightens up darker days & nights.

INSPIRATION

We go against the grain by crafting a White IPA rather than the typical dark beers common in the winter months. The gift-giving winter tradition of the Lowlanders continues, as they give their loved ones initials in chocolate letters – or now in bottles of our winter I.P.A.

BREWED WITH

Spruce needles
Not quite a vegetable and not quite a herb, spruce may be an unconventional ingredient found in beer.  But spruce beer goes way back and this intriguing botanical delivers all kinds of interesting characteristics to our Winter I.P.A.

Juniper berries
There is so much more to this flavour-packed berry than gin… Piny, resinous, perfumy and pungent; it is the perfect botanical for our refreshing Winter I.P.A. on cold winter days.

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 new Winter I.P.A. is a sessionable beer with a grassy citrus kick complemented by the evergreen conifer notes of fresh green spruce tips and juniper berries, while still balancing out the bitterness, making this one an easy sipper. Perfect to pair with slow beef and beer stew, creamy cheeses like oven baked camembert but also a surprisingly well fit with spicy seafood.
