Alcohol by volume

ABV is the alcohol percentage of beer. ABV stands for 'Alcohol By Volume' expressed as a percentage.



European Brewery Convention

EBC is the color of beer. EBC stands for European Brewers Convention. The scale ranges from yellow (10) to red (25) to black (>70).



International Bitterness Unit

IBU is the bitterness of beer. Dutch pilsner is approximately 15-20 IBU, while a West Coast IPA can quickly reach 60 IBU. IBU is always in proportion to the alcohol percentage of the beer, so a heavy beer with high IBU can still taste sweet because the maltiness overpowers the bitterness.

The story

Hazy Weekend Hop Selection: Cascade

Because we buy such an incredible amount of hops, we are allowed to select the hops of a number of varieties ourselves. Sander, Ronald and the brewers then put their noses in hops from different origins to select the tastiest.

Hops are the seasoning in IPAs, Pale Ales and other hoppy beer styles. It makes a lot of difference to the brewer which hops go into a beer. In addition to hop variety and freshness, the place where the hops grow is also crucial for the taste of the beer. Just like grapes, hops are influenced by the so-called terroir. Where the hops grow determines the taste of the beer. For example, two fields of the same variety on the same farm can appear completely different in the glass.

For example, we are looking for the peachiest Cascade, the sharpest Citra, the strongest Mosaic and the most aromatic Columbus. And this is your chance to taste them!
