My craft beer tip for this week is the Jopen Damiate DRIPA, a 9 percent double rye IPA to slowly start feeling the fall which is setting in here in Amsterdam.
3 reasons I chose Jopen Damiate DRIPA
- Jopen beer is a Dutch Haarlem-based brewery
Haarlem is basically small and relaxed version of Amsterdam (if you thought Amsterdam was already small and relaxed…) Whenever you find yourself in Amsterdam, spend a day wandering abouts this little town. Even allows you to directly dive into the North Sea or relax on the beach.
- You’re basically drinking old war stories
The name Damiate stems from old tales on the Haarlem people’s contribution to the crusades to Jerusalem, taking over the city of Damiate. As a sign of gratitude, the Dutch city of Haarlem received a sword and cross on its shield.
- A mouth full of fruit and a taste of bitterness
Jopen Damiate DRIPA has a unique blend offering you a fresh fruity like taste with a bittersweet overtone, resulting in a well balanced ipa with a malt body and an IBU of 80. Cheers!
