The overflow of boring pilsners helped in creating the Kompaan 070 Kameraad. A cold dry hopped pilsner with body. This pils is three times as bitter and hoppy as a standard pils, but still fresh and drinkable -- a real ‘craft’ pilsner.
This beer is simple with some edge--a true “Kameraad” (pal)! Refreshing and citrusy, with pleasant and bitter endnotes.
Our first beer series. The Kompaan Bondgenoot (no 20.) is the first beer we brewed in our own kitchen. It's the beer that spawned our drive to create new flavours and gave birth to our own ideas about craft beer. Pretty soon the Kameraad Hoppy Pilsner and the Handlanger Double IPA followed. In 2015 the Badgast joined the Core Range. The Bloedbroeder Russian Imperial Stout is the most decorated beer in our whole range and was awarded "Best Dutch Beer of 2017", making KOMPAAN a household name in the Dutch craft beer landscape.
It's that time of year again: scorching heat waves, blistering cold winters, early spring barbecues: these are our go-to recipes for each season.
Our highly successful collaboration with Van Moll continues...
The original working title of this series is called "Blubberdikkejetsers", and although this name isn't the most poetic, it certainly captures the true spirit of these beers! Muddy, thick & heavy - these beers are easy substitutes for a hearty dessert or a colourful birthday cake.
Reinforcements have arrived! They are the cream of the crop! The absolute allies! Our ELITE FORCE! Boldly brewed by the Kompaan brewers and heavily reinforced with barrels. This is the dawn of a new era for our Foreign Legion! These are not your sissy boys ‘n girls. They're serious powerlifters. Dark as the night. And we made sure they will make a lasting memory on all serious craft beer enthusiasts!
As we we're told, some might go M.I.A... These are the Legionairs of the past.
Friendship, exploration, enrichment and joy! You will always find at least one of those elements in these up and coming trailblazers.
