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

Klophop

Not long after we opened our brewery in Overvecht in 2017, Wietske van Utrecht of course came to us with hops from city garden De Klopvaart. This hop turned out to grow too wild in permaculture there. We cultivated this hop on a hop field in city garden De Klopvaart and then distributed it throughout the country to enthusiastic (garden) hop farmers from 2021. The Klophop is harvested every year during a large harvest festival at the brewery and then processed fresh. Klophop is particularly spicy and has a strong citrus note that is in balance with the spiciness. Every year in April, we encourage our hop farmers to propagate and propagate their hops. You can also get your own Klophop plant in our webshop around that time. The beer is brewed to let the hops taste as much as possible: a drinkable blond beer with a large load of hops in the whirlpool.
