Jenever stories and waste beer jenever - cancelled

15.12.2016 om 20u00

CANCELLED due to illness. New date for this event: 07.01 during Finissage MANUFACTUUR 3.0

Join us Thursday December 15 for a delightful evening in the winter cold with the warmth of 'waste beer' jenever tastings and some 'strong' jenever stories.

Z33 invited Henriëtte Waal to distill a 'waste' beer into jenever with the Buitenbrouwerij (Outdoor Brewery) project in cooperation with the local distillery 't Stookkot in Hasselt as part of MANUFACTUUR 3.0.

Jenever and the city of Hasselt are irrevocably linked. Once jenever was the national drink. This changed in 1958 when the laws on distilling at home became restricted after several serious incidents. Today, some distilleries continue the jenever distilling tradition. Others have switched to beer. Unlike jenever, beer has a limited shelf life and once in a while a batch fails. However, this waste beer batch can be redistilled into a jenever with an intrinsic character thanks to the hops of the beer.

Buitenbrouwerij, developed and created by designer and beer brewer Henriëtte Waal, makes a connection between man and landscape. By using a local water supply such as local sources, surface water or rainwater and also local ingredients, Waal develops location based specialty beers in cooperation with local brewers.
