N.A.P.

Normal Amsterdam Pilsner

Pilsner | Alc. 5% Vol.

Double hopped pilsner, bottom fermented at 12° C

More about N.A.P.

Pilsner as pilsner should taste. Normal pilsner, from Amsterdam! A bit cocky, wears its heart on its sleeve, but cheerful and easy going. Hoppy, fruity and light, a good companion to pleasantly pass time with.

Brewed from Pilsner and Munich malt and double hopped with Northern Brewer in the kettle and Simcoe and Mosaic in the whirlpool. Bottom fermented at 12º C.

American Pale Ale

Pale Ale | Alc. 5,5% Vol.

Triple hopped blonde Pale Ale with American yeast and hops.

More about A.P.A.

A bold beer that’s not afraid of large gestures, that’s ballsy and brash. Loudly hoppy, screamingly fresh and broadly bitter, a brew that will make American Pale Ale great again.

Triple hopped blonde Pale Ale from Pilsner and Munich malts and American yeast. Hopped in the kettle with Columbus for bitterness, and for aroma with Simcoe and Mosaic in the whirlpool and dry-hop.

It’s great. Really great. Just great. Again.

I.P.A.

India Pale Ale

Pale Ale | Alc. 6,6% Vol.

A proper I.P.A., triple hopped with large quantities of hops.

More about I.P.A.

Is the elephant in the room: nothing about this crisp, tasty beer is careful or subtle. It’s a proper I.P.A., full bodied and full flavored, heavily hoppy with intensely fresh citrus aromas taking center stage.

Brewed from Pilsner and Munich malt, and hopped with vast amounts of Simcoe, Centennial, Citra and Amarillo. This certainly isn’t beer for the faint of heart.

P.A.

Philosopher’s Ale

Real Ale | Alc. 4.8% Vol.

Real Ale from a complex mix of malt, wheat, barley and corn. Fermented with English Ale-yeast.

More about P.A.

A heady brew for thinking people: dark, but clear of character, full-bodied but with a nimble aftertaste, malt forward but light-footed. Chestnut coloured, with tones of blackberry and dark fruit and with a slight hint of coffee, but fresh and hoppy nonetheless.

Real Ale of a complex mix of malt, wheat, roasted barley, and corn. Quadruple hopped with Brewer’s Gold and Northern Brewer during mashing and twice in the kettle, and again in the whirlpool with Mosaic. Fermented with English yeast.

B.S.

The Bright Side

Session Ale | Alc. 4,4% Vol.

A light blonde triple hopped Session Ale with a sunny character.

More about B.S.

A gay, light hearted, straw blonde ale for those who see stuff from the sunny side.

Brewed of Pilsner, Pale Ale, and Cara malts, hopped with Columbus, Bramling Cross, and Fuggles, and dry-hopped with Hallertau Blanc. This results in hints of passion fruit, citrus, pineapple, grape, and lemongrass.

A light summer beer that happily wags its tail, but is impressively muscular nonetheless.

B.A.S.

Bass Activated Saison

Saison | Alc. 6,5% Vol.

Saison from malt and spelt, activated with dramatic drums and bellowing basstones.

More about B.A.S.

This Saison is ‘bass-activated’: by way of low frequency sound waves from Friekens’ own sound system the yeast has been kept in suspension for the first 72 hours in the tank. This process ensures a prolonged and more thorough fermentation.

Brewed from Pilsner malt and spelt, hopped with Brewers Gold, East Kent Goldings and Hallertau Blanc, enriched with Curaçao orange peel and fermented with Belle Saison yeast.

A classic Saison-‘nose’, refreshing, pleasant citrus tones and a dry finish make this an especially tasty Saison.
