Probably announced this afternoon: Bavaria buys Uiltje Group in Haarlem. Another one bites the dust…
Shit. They are (were?) amazing.
What will I do with the Uiltje sticker on my fridge???
Stick a Molen sticker next to it
Well I will need a de Molen sticker then I suppose.
Sad news, they better carry on brewing some Brut IPA’s - had some good ones from them recently
Well, the idea is that Robbert Uyleman can now get back to the creative side of things without the burden that comes with being an owner of a business. And he stated tonight he’s a fan of brut ipas, so there’s hope!
Are brut IPAs still a thing? I thought they’d been extincted!
Why would the State of Bavaria want a Dutch brewery?
Surely there are enough breweries down there already!
PS. Disclaimer; just finishing a 12% ABV Demoersleutel Intergalactic Bounty Hunter!
Some Czech breweries have been pushing them as late as 2020/2021, usually without success. Like they were late for the party and now had to make up for that somehow, and failing miserably.
I like Brut IPAs. Maybe it’s not a style that I’d want all the time but they are a refreshing change from NEIPAs.
I would say not a thing, and certainly tough to find as such which makes hunting them down more of a challenge, but most that I have managed to find come from Dutch brewers (last 3 were Dutch Bargain/Jopen/Uiltje) and Uiltje been the best/most consistent so far.
