Lowlander Pumpkin Weizen, from rescued pumpkin

21-9-2022

  • Lowlander Pumpkin WeizenLowlander Pumpkin Weizen

Botanical brewer Lowlander brings a breath of fresh air to the fall beer season and introduces the Lowlander Pumpkin Weizen (5% abv). In keeping with the beer brand’s ambition to become “Nature Positive” by 2030, the Pumpkin Weizen contributes to the fight against food waste. The fall beer is brewed with rescued pumpkins that could not be sold due to beauty flaws. The Lowlander Pumpkin Weizen is from now on available at Albert Heijn, in the better catering industry and via the Lowlander webshop, among others.

We previously wrote about the first alcohol-free craft beer tap and Lowlander’s Cool Earth Lager, to combat climate change. In 2021, for every Cool Earth Lager beer sold, Lowlander planted a seagrass plant in the Wadden area. Last year we also wrote about their I.P.A. Re-Genever, their Botanical beer garden to go and more other interesting articles. We are always very enthusiastic about the initiatives of Lowlander, and we are again very curious about this new beer, what would you drink it with?

Don’t you enjoy the outdoors again, being able to meet friends on a terrace? We do and we are curious which drinks are popular this year besides the standard white wine, rosé, white beer, special beer and non-alcoholic beer. The popularity of the Aperol Spritz remains undiminished, but we are seeing more and more versions of the Spritz and the non-alcoholic drinks are especially popular during the day! We have also spotted special glasses for drinks, a trend for 2022 as a colleague called it, but whether you can talk about it as a trend? During my time as a stewardess, I was given a small Buddha statue in which a plastic glass with a cocktail was placed at a Japanese Steakhouse, you could keep the Buddha. These Buddha’s were so popular with friends that I regularly enjoyed a cocktail there. And that was really a long time ago… ^Marjolein

It’s finally time again to socialize with friends on the patio with a cocktail, spritzer or a mocktail. The demand for exciting drinks that don’t leave you hungover is growing and the #sobercommunity is on the rise. ORGANICS by Red Bull joins this demand: this spring, the alcohol-free and premium organic soda ORGANICS by Red Bull will be back in full force in the Dutch hospitality sector. In addition to the five existing flavors, three new flavors have been added, each with their own unique character: Purple Berry, Black Orange and Ginger Beer.

We recently tasted the three new flavors. Delicious, fresh and not too sweet. We love to picture ourselves with a cold glass in the sun on a terrace. The Ginger Beer flavor is nice and spicy and you can clearly taste the ginger. The ladies especially enjoyed the light sweetness of the Purple Berry.
