Oh have we got something started with Brouwerij Kees. After talking for years about brewing a beer together, now it finally happened. Kees is a guy that you would call persistent, he started as a chef, saw an opportunity to go from home brewer to a more professional level. Within a few years he made name internationally, opened his own ‘Brouwerij Kees’ in 2015 to eventually get voted top-4 new brewers worldwide, talking about a kick-start ‘ey!
You see, this is why this collab is named Starter: we both just do things because we believe in it… Get things started.
Starter is a 4% sour Witbier. Doing various kettle soured beers up till now, we decided to brew a very traditional Witbier, but than with this kettle soured base since Kees and us always like to give things a twist. The kettle soured base gives the beer super fresh sour character. A big dose of wheat in the grist and very few late additions of hop, just a bit of Baveria and Hallertau Tradition for an extra citrus boost… Of course Stater has orange peel and coriander thrown in the mix, it’s still a Witbier right ;).
