Gulpener Special Beers
Gulpener Beer approached Wunderwald to design labels and packaging for their one off-limited editions 75ml beers; IJsbock, Plato, Verse Hop, and Zwarte Ruiter.
Gulpener Brewery is an independent Dutch brewery, located in Gulpen, Limburg, the Netherlands. The brewery was founded in 1825.
Brewed in Herberg ‘De Zwarte Ruiter’ in Gulpen, the beer of the same name is based on a medieval recipe called Mestreechs Aajt. This beer ripens in heavy oak barrels to become a dark delicious fresh beer with an apple-like taste.
The name for the IJsbock beer comes from a special brewing technique where after fermentation, the beer is cooled to minus 20 degrees celsius. The water freezes while the alcohol and aroma of the beer stay conserved. This technique results in an intensely powerful beer with sweet tones.
