KoekeDam is a light blonde beer with a soft spicy and crunchy fresh taste.
Alcohol content: 6,5%
The recipe for KoekeDam was first developed in 2011. The occasion was the creation of a beer to celebrate the Turnhout 2012 festivities. The original recipe contained Amarillo- hop. But because this year 2012 was very scarce, we opted for Cascade hops. The latter gives a citrus aroma. This adapted recipe was used for the Turnhout Patriot. Because we have missed a lady in 2014 in our "full street" and had no windows symbol in our range, the choice was easy: KoekeDam.
Now more than ten years ago, a group of friends started a beer tasting club. Every two weeks they came together at one of their homes to drink a good Belgian beer and to discuss beer, women and football. During the years the interest in beer grew. This resulted in following brewing courses in 2007.
From that year on, they started “Hobbybrouwerij Het Nest (Home Brewery the Cradle)”. Their first success was a third place at the Open Dutch Championship for home brewers in the “triple” class.
