Vandestreek Hard Pour Tasting Notes
Appearance: The "Hard Pour" sets the stage with an opulent, deep amber to brown hue, crowned by a large, fluffy head of light tan foam. The head exhibits remarkable retention, slowly dissipating to leave a fine tracing of lacing along the glass, suggestive of its rich texture and body.
Aroma: As you approach the glass, a symphony of aromas wafts upwards. The bouquet is dominated by a freshly baked bread scent, courtesy of its pronounced yeasty character. It’s interwoven with layers of sweet malt, presenting a tapestry of caramel and toffee. Fruit esters add complexity, evoking the impression of ripe, dark berries gently warmed in the sun.
Palate: The first sip greets the palate with a delicate interplay of malt sweetness and fruitiness. Rather than heavy roasted flavours, it leans towards a nuanced profile where mild cocoa and a hint of roasted coffee beans come forth. These darker flavours are skilfully balanced, avoiding any bitterness, instead providing a comforting, malt-forward embrace.
Mouthfeel: The body is unexpectedly light and approachable, contrasting the visual intensity with a silky, almost velvety texture. Carbonation is finely tuned, sufficient to give life and lift to the beer without challenging its smooth nature. The "Hard Pour" maintains a friendly presence on the palate, inviting the drinker to savour its complexities without any weightiness.
Finish: The finish of this non-alcoholic brew is graceful and clean, leaving behind hints of the initial cocoa and gentle coffee notes. It's smooth from start to end, providing a satisfying closure that balances the sweetness with a dry touch, ensuring that the final note is as pleasant as the first.
Indulge in the exquisite synergy between VandeStreek's Hard Pour Non-Alcoholic Beer and a selection of culinary delights. This sophisticated stout, with its creamy head and robust character, is the perfect accompaniment to a variety of dishes. Enhance your dining experience with pairings crafted to elevate each sip and bite.
Savor the richness of the Hard Pour alongside heartwarming rustic dishes. A hearty mushroom risotto or a savory vegan shepherd's pie creates a harmonious blend with the stout's earthy undertones, while its nitrogen-induced smoothness cuts through the creaminess of these comforting meals.
Grilled vegetables and plant-based burgers gain a new dimension of taste when paired with this non-alcoholic stout. The charred, smoky flavors from the grill contrast beautifully with the smooth, velvety texture of the beer, offering a refreshing and satisfying counterpoint.
Dive into the world of spices with ethnic dishes such as a rich Indian dal or a Moroccan vegetable tagine. The complexity of spices in these cuisines is gracefully complemented by the stout's deep flavours, providing a backdrop that enhances the meal's aromatic profile.
No meal is complete without a touch of sweetness. Partner the Hard Pour with a dark chocolate torte or a vegan caramel cheesecake. The subtle coffee and cacao notes inherent in the stout will resonate with the desserts' richness, crafting an unforgettable end to any dining experience.

Experience the full potential of VandeStreek's Hard Pour Non-Alcoholic Beer with these carefully considered serving suggestions. Crafted for the utmost enjoyment, follow these tips to enhance the intricate qualities of this exceptional stout.
The Perfect Pour
To achieve the trademark creamy head and release the full spectrum of aromas, give the can a gentle shake before opening. Then, invert the can and pour swiftly into the centre of a pre-chilled, large tulip glass. The rapid pour from height encourages a thick foam cap to form, characteristic of nitrogen-infused stouts, and presents the beer's deep, ebony hues beautifully.
Opt for a glass that complements the stout's rich profile. A tulip glass is ideal for concentrating the nuanced aromas, enhancing the sensory experience. The wide bowl allows for ample room to develop a generous head, while the inward taper near the lip captures and focuses the bouquet.
Serve the Hard Pour slightly cooler than room temperature, around 8-10°C. This temperature range allows the subtle notes of coffee and cacao to emerge without overpowering the palate, maintaining the beer's smooth and approachable character.
Complement your Hard Pour with snacks that echo its flavours. A selection of roasted nuts or dark chocolate can draw out the beer's toasty and sweet notes. For a savoury twist, aged hard cheeses or spiced seitan jerky can provide a delightful contrast to the stout's creamy texture.
Whether enjoying a quiet evening at home or hosting a sophisticated gathering, these serving suggestions will ensure that each glass of VandeStreek's Hard Pour Non-Alcoholic Beer is poured to perfection, offering a premium non-alcoholic experience that is both indulgent and memorable.
In the heart of Utrecht, Netherlands, two ambitious brothers, Ronald and Sander van de Streek, embarked on a thrilling journey into the world of craft beer. Their shared passion for quality brews and creative experimentation led them to establish vandeStreek Brewery in 2013. The name, which translates to "from the region," reflects their commitment to creating innovative beers while celebrating their local roots.
Initially starting as homebrewers, Ronald and Sander's creations quickly gained a devoted following, prompting them to expand their operations into a full-fledged brewery. Over the years, the duo has focused on pushing the boundaries of traditional brewing, offering a diverse range of exceptional beers that cater to various tastes and preferences.
vandeStreek Brewery made waves in the non-alcoholic beer market with the introduction of their Playground IPA, a remarkable alcohol-free brew that doesn't compromise on flavour. Packed with a fruity hop profile and smooth malt backbone, Playground IPA has become a popular choice among those seeking the taste and complexity of craft beer without the alcohol content.
Today, vandeStreek continues to grow and innovate, producing an ever-expanding lineup of unique and delicious beers that showcase their commitment to quality and creativity. With every sip, you'll experience the passion and dedication that has driven the van de Streek brothers to redefine the world of craft brewing.
