VandeStreek Playground IPA (0.5%)
At a tiny 0.5% alcohol, this stunning IPA will surprise you. All the punch of a standard beer with nearly none of the alcohol. Playground IPA pours a deep, rusty orange. It’s cloudy, clearly unfiltered, with a velvety head that clings to the glass as you sip. The carbonation is smooth, almost fluffy in the mouth. The body is medium to heavy, and impressive for a low alcohol brew. There’s pine, grass and savoury spices on the nose, unlike many other more fruit-forward no or low alcohol beers. The bitterness hits in the finish, which is dry and a perfect accomplice to the tropical flavours at the top of the sip. It’s sure to be a go-to if you like your modern India Pale Ales.
The vandeStreeks brew because they enjoy it. It’s the best thing there is: creating taste without making concessions. Superfresh IPAs, popping stouts, creamy tripels – their beers are modern, full of flavour and challenging. Coming to us all the way from The Netherlands, their innovative beers are something to celebrate, and something to celebrate with.
