FASHIONCLASH ♥ GULPENER
THE BUILDING BLOCKS OF THE BEST BEER IN THE NETHERLANDS
Proud sponsor of FASHIONCLASH Festival since 2015
FASHIONCLASH is honoured to team up for the 3rd time with Gulpener Brewery during FASHIONCLASH Festival 2017. A true friend; Tickling our senses, and sharing the love for collaboration, craftsmanship, quality, freedom, traditional values, hospitableness, and of course good beer!
Gulpener is an independent and sustainable Dutch family brewery, located in Gulpen (South Limburg, the Netherlands). Gulpener dates back to 1825 and is known for its long tradition of beer craftsmanship, innovative spirit and rich flavours. They were the first Dutch brewery to introduce several special crafts beers. They now present 16 special beers, some of which have been awarded prestigious prices.
BEER THAT MAKES SENSE!
The way WE love fashion, GULPENER loves brewing the most tasteful beers! Gulpener is the only brewery in the Netherlands to use water from its own sources, hop from its own garden and receives its barley locally from farmers who produce eco- and environmentally friendly. As a result, Gulpener is known for a fantastic diversity of flavours and aromas that gives each of their beers its distinctive character.
As an independent family brewery they are free to sail their own course. Free to discover their own taste. Free to do what feels good. They love experimenting with interesting flavours and brewing techniques. Combine this with the fact that they don’t pasteurize their beers, and they use traditional artisanal brewing techniques; a slightly different taste from year-to-year might surprise your taste buds.
True to this year’s theme “Fashion Makes Sense” this affection and freedom – from seasonal and special beers to monastery beers and pilsners – promises to be a multi-sensory experience that can be felt, tasted, smelled, heard, envisioned AND triggers the imagination! Sit, poor, watch, roll, smell, taste and admire. Because, why should only taste have all the fun?
