Water

The purity of our beer. Water contains minerals that affect the appearance, taste and aroma of Wispe.

Malt

The soul of our beer. Malt gives color and a delicate flavor to Wispe from bitter to sweet.

Hops

The character of our beer. Hop creates the unique aroma and bitter taste of Wispe and is a natural preservative for the beer.

Yeast

Life in our beer. Yeast converts the fermentable sugars into alcohol and gives Wispe characteristic flavor accents.

Brewing Process

To make beer, all you really need is water, malt, hops and yeast. What makes Wispe special is the quality of our organic ingredients and our recipes. Every step of the brewing process contributes to the unique flavor of ours beers.

1. MALTING
Malt is the foundation of the brewing process. The malt is germinated and dried. This process we call malting.
2. MASHING
In the brewery, the malt is milled into a substance that we call grist. The grist is mixed with water to create a pulp. This is also called mash. By heating the mash, the starch is converted into natural sugars. The next step is called lautering. The mash is filtered and a clear liquid called wort is extracted. 
3. SPENT GRAIN
The wet solids left over from wort extraction are called spent grains. This spent grain basically consists of sprouts and is send to a local farmer for use as animal feed. Further we use it is as soil vertilizer for the Wispe garden.
4. BOILING
After the lautering process, the wort is boiled in our kettles. During this boiling process, we add hops and/or herbs. The wort is rapidly cooled down.
5. FERMENTATION
Yeast is added to the cooled wort. Sugars are converted into alcohol, carbon dioxide and flavours. The fermentation process lasts about a week. After this we can speak of young beer.
6. CONDITIONING
We allow the young beer to mature for a number of weeks in lagering tanks. After the conditioning process, we will remove the remaining yeast and hops. This gives it the desired clarity.
7. PACKAGING
This bright beer goes into a bright beer tank ready to be filled in our bottles and kegs.
8. ENJOY
The brewing process is now complete. So time to enjoy Wispe.

Wispe Garden

We want to show you the entire process of brewing: from the grains, hops and herbs, to a good glass of Wispe beer on the table. To show the ingredients for our beers, we look at the possibility for a Wispe Garden, near the brewery. The garden should be a point of interest, a nice delight during a bike ride or walk. In this way we can tell you all about the ingredients we use, our brewing process and the rich brewing history of Weesp.

Gin

Making also gin from our beer, makes two drinks which go together perfectly. With Anker Weesp gin we explore the possibility to place a pot still in our brewery. This gin will be a fantastic drink which we could proudly serve alongside our beers in the taproom. Pure or as in a drink mix.
