Okura and Homeland introduce extraordinary summer beer:
Okura Wit

Amsterdam, June 15, 2023Hotel Okura Amsterdam and Homeland Brewery are launching Okura Wit today. It is an extraordinary summer white beer: refreshing, smooth, and full-bodied. The perfect beer to enjoy on the terrace at Restaurant Serre, one of the restaurants at Hotel Okura Amsterdam. Okura Wit is also available for online order and can be found at affiliated bars of Homeland Brewery.

Okura Wit was created in co-creation with brewmaster Wietse Postma from Homeland Brewery and the executive chefs of Yamazato*, Masanori Tomikawa, and Ciel Bleu**, Arjan Speelman. Together, they have created a unique flavor experience with Okura Wit. While Tomikawa incorporates the Japanese culture with the Japanese fruit sudachi, Speelman adds the spicy bite of the beer with timur berries. The carefully selected ingredients and refined recipe have resulted in a refreshing wheat beer.

Both Hotel Okura Amsterdam and Homeland Brewery are synonymous with culinary enjoyment at the highest level. In November 2022, their collaboration resulted in Okura Tripel, setting the trend. More co-creations will follow, in line with the season.

“We are thrilled to launch this new co-creation,” said Jacco den Hartog, Commercial Manager of Homeland Brewery Amsterdam. “During the creation process, passion for craftsmanship and quality takes center stage. You can taste that shared passion in Okura Wit.”

Jeroen Taillie, Food & Beverage Director at Hotel Okura Amsterdam, added, “Seasons play an important role in our culinary offerings. With Okura Wit, we welcome and celebrate a beautiful summer. Our executive chefs have created a high-quality and refreshing beer for the terrace with this co-creation.”
