Lowlands Group announces an expansion of the Lowlands Brewing Collaborative, which brings the world’s best brewers together in a celebration of “bier culture.” Door County Brewing Co. is the latest addition to the collaboration, which also includes Brouwerij Van Steenberge and Brouwerij The Musketeers – two Belgian breweries – as well as Central Waters Brewing Co. in Amherst, Wis.
“We knew we wanted to offer a saison-style beer for the summer, it was just a matter of finding the right fit in a new collaborator,” said Dan Herwig, brand and marketing director at Lowlands Group. “Door County Brewing just gets us. We understand where they are coming from and vice versa. Their focus on Belgian-style farmhouse ales is super unique, and just happened to be the exact style we were looking to collaborate on with someone.”
The Seasonal Saison Series will offer constantly rotating saisons each season, the first of which is brewed by Door County Brewing and named Summer17. It’s described as a well-balanced saison brewed with Pilsner and rye malts, Fuggle and Golding hops, and is spiced with lemongrass, lime zest and grains of paradise. In addition, Door County’s Belgian yeast strains add complexity while still resulting in an approachable beer that has fruity, zesty and floral notes, perfect for summer.
The Summer17 Saison will be available at Door County Brewing’s tap room. A complete listing of the Collaborative’s biers is available at lowlandsbrewing.com.
