This collab with our fellow provincial and colleague Floem Craft Beer from Appingedam is a NEDIPA and is double dry hopped with the fantastic Riwaka hop. Riwaka is a quintessential Kiwi hop known for its high oil content, which provides strong citrus notes when used in larger quantities. According to some, it is therefore the perfect hop for hoppy styles. We also used good old Citra and El Dorado. Together they provide a beautiful whole of citrus-like flavors and aromas. To guarantee the hazy base, the malt grist consists of low color Golden Promise, regular pilsner malt, carapils malt, various types of oats and wheat. To bring all the elements together, we chose WHC’s Fruit Bowl yeast for the fermentation, a blend of different strains, perfect for the hazy style.

Like so many others we are beer geeks who turned brewers, because of our love for the great, versatile product that is beer. We love to drink big, bold beer with profound aromas and flavors and naturally that’s what we brew.
Since our start with the brewing adventure back in late 2017 our motto is to never stop learning: we’re always tweaking our beers to create the best beer we possibly can.
Our ambition is to start our own brewery and we are working towards that goal every single day. We are growing and expanding with almost every release, so what started as just a 250 liter release back in 2018 is now approximately 3000 liters per beer. It’s been great fun!
What’s in a name?
Folkinge, the first part of our name, refers to the location where we started brewing: in the ‘backyard’ of a beer shop in the Folkingestraat in Groningen. Brew refers to the American craft beer culture, where we mostly get our inspiration.
