Another reason to be beerfull in January
Monday 1 January 2018
It always hits. We all comment on it, sometimes people get it worse than others. It’s cold, it’s wet, we’ve spent all our money on Star Wars tickets and pop corn etc
Well there’s no need to get the January Blues when you come to Lowlander. The first 3 months of the year can be the most exciting for us..did I hear you ask why? Oh ok thanks for asking I will elaborate. January is the time we take stock of all the beers we have in the cellar. We normally have a lot of specials which we have kept back, not sold or we have been ageing them. On our menu we currently have 90 fixed beers. However on our specials boards guest lists etc we have many many more. Now is the time to showcase these ales and a very good time to buy as what we found last year was we order a few cases of [ example: toöl dangerously close to apricot] and when we sell out the brewery often doesn’t make anymore for this year or they don’t make it all -insert here sad face emoji:😩
There’s tons of good rare beer in our cellar at the moment we want you to try so please ask the team what’s in our secret cellar. I know for a fact there’s some hidden gems from Tilquan, De La Senne, Cantillon, Tiny Rebel and Toöl etc
Another reason to be beerfull in January is we then start to plan the next seasons beer specials and this is what I live for. Our goal is to get you the very best from around Belgium and the rest of the world. We try to protect the little breweries as much as possible( last year so many got swallowed up by InBev, Diageo etc so we are constantly on the look out for new and exciting breweries. Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram as this is where we post the new beers we will be getting. For example I chap I know who frequents the bar every time he goes to a Freemasons meeting asked me to get Gordon’s Scotch ale in for Burns night on the 25th January. He said get this beer in I will bring 18 of us in every Thursday. Well, hope to see you every Thursday Patrick because I’ve got 96 bottles in just for you!
We would just like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helped support us throughout 2017. We are very lucky to have such wonderful patrons of our beautiful little bar and you really do help us move forward. 2017 was a tough year in many ways with price rises, rent increases and low and behold the great National Dairy crisis! We thank one and all and look forward to seeing you in 2018.
