Simplified Complexity!

Here at Draai Laag [dry-law`g] we strive to create something truly different. Our creations are Belgian inspired ales concentrating on style integration. Our approach to making beer is centered on old world methods, such as complex fermentations using multiple yeast strains, long maturation periods and aging our beers on the lees. Everything we create is brewed in small artisanal batches and bottle by hand. Through a simplified process, we take great pride in creating complex flavors in a world inundated with the norm.  

Please feel free to follow us on twitter and Facebook. For upcoming events and/or special happenings, we will post it to the message board and social media sites. Thanks for choosing Draai Laag.

12/19/2014: Black Shepard Farms graces us with their fine foods yet again and...If all goes well....The launch of our new beer "R2 Koelschip"! This ale is a tribute to honor our little fermenter (nicknamed the R2) we used as our coolship, to achieve open spontaneous fermentation with indigenous yeast. From that culture, we were able to extract the "Wild Angels" strain.

R2 Koelschip is a session beer. We started with a recipe, closely resembling typical Biere de Garde characteristics (only lower in alcohol) and with a portion of wheat in the grain bill. However, in typical Draai Laag fashion, it's fermented at two different temperatures and as a farmhouse ale with a compilation of wild indigenous yeast strains.

Good luck pinning that beer into a style guideline!
