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?
