vandeStreek Hard Pour Coffee Nitro Stout ~ 33cl Cans
For decades there has been a ‘widget’ that gives cans of a well known Irish beer a creamy, thick, full head. After vandeStreek installed a nitrogen generator to carry out numerous production processes in the brewery, it was only logical to also put the nitrogen to use to replicate this style. Therefore Hard Pour Coffee Stout is saturated with nitrogen during canning.
To get the sought after velvety effect in your glass you should do the following: a short, vigourous shake of the can; open and pour quickly into the middle of a large glass – not slowly down the side. Then enjoy Hard Pour with a creamy head!
Brewed with Sabro, Columbus and Magnum hops with the addition of coffee and cacao.
Pours with a large, fluffy, light tan colour head. A bready, yeasty nose where more sweet malt and fruit than dark roast is discerned. A lightish body with some cocoa chocolate and mild coffee notes gives a smooth, easy drinking, finish.
About the Brand
vandeStreek Brouwerij is a new craft brewery based in Utrecht in the Netherlands. The beers are modern, full of flavour, challenging and creative – above all, top quality.
Brothers Sander and Ronald Van de Streek started home brewing in 2010. Production was still just 50 ltr per brew in May 2013 when their beers were introduced to the public at the Utretch Beer Brewers Festival.
By 2016 a crowdfunding campaign allowed Ronald and Sander to become full time brewers, settle on a core range of beers and draw up plans for their own brewery, which opened for production in 2017.
vandeStreek brew a core range of seven beers including the Playground Non Alcoholic IPA. Then, in addition, they brew a ‘special’ every other month, complemented by both collaborations and ‘Barrel Aged’ beers from their growing stock of barrels.
