Mango key lime pie is a dessert pie made with mango, lime, egg yolks and sweetened milk. To bring these flavors into the beer, we have conditioned our typically sour Berliner Weisse base (8%) on large amounts of mango, lime, vanilla and lactose.
For the ‘crust’ effect, we added cardamom, which is widely used in desserts, cakes and pastries. This creates a complex whole of aromas and flavours, in which the acidity of the base beer is very nicely supported by the lime and cardamom and is counteracted by the sweeter mango, lactose and vanilla.

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.
