Tim Freriks, Tim Teitink and Felix Schnetz are 3 brothers-in-law with a common passion: brewing beer. The three have built up a lot of experience in the beer world in the past and thought it was the right time to bundle their joint knowledge and start brewing their own beers. They experiment a lot and combine old and new styles and brewing methods to bring surprising beers to the market. At the end of 2018 the 0.5 Hoppy Lager was born, the first non-alcoholic beer of the three.
Fresh and fruity
The 0.5 Hoppy Lager is, as the name suggests, a beer rich in hops and malts. American hops are used in the brewing process with flavors of passion fruit, citrus and grapefruit. Because of that abundance of hops, the beer tastes slightly bitter, but also deliciously fruity, without ever becoming too sweet. That bitterness, in combination with the freshness of the clearly present citrus ensures that the 0.5 Hoppy Lager has become a very fresh beer, that can effortlessly guide you through the warmest summer days.
As a thirst quencher oraperitif
0.5 Hoppy Lager is very easy to drink, making it a real thirst quencher. The beer is slightly amber and the bright, off-white foam head stays intact for quite a long time. You can drink this beer perfectly on a terrace in the sun, but it is also ideal as an aperitif before a copious meal. The bitterness and freshness of this beer will only improve your appetite.
The first non-alcoholic beer from the ‘Brothers in Law’ is a direct hit. Hopefully the three will experiment fully in the future and surprise us a few more times with a new non-alcoholic beer. Let’s hope that the Hoppy Lager becomes widespread, because everyone should be able to enjoy this beautiful beer.
