The Messentrekker is the regional product of Oss (6% alcohol). Together with local heart foundation, we have put the towns "swear name knife-fighters" on the map in a positive way. This soft amber beer with a fruity surprise is perfect for the crafts beer drinker.
The origins of Messentrekker
2016, the idea came from Roy Thijssen from the Heart Foundation Stichting Hart to turn the negative nick name knife-fighters for Oss to a positive connotation. Roy said, "I wanted to do something good for my town and launching a nice specialty beer seemed like a good idea." Soon he involved the Muifel Brewery and with great enthusiasm we got to work right away. The unique ingredients in the Messentrekker are the cranberries of the local hob and barley growers Landerij VanTosse. In addition the Messentrekker is brewed in Oss. This makes it rightly a regional beer.
Besides the fact that we wanted to put the 'nick-name' on the map positively, part of the proceeds from the Messentrekker beer also funds a local charity. This is a truly fantastic joint collaboration between the Heart Foundation Stichting Hart for Oss - for and by Oss and the Muifelbrewery.
The Messentrekker beer
The Messentrekker is an easily drinkable, slightly hoppy amber-coloured regional beer. Because of the slightly sweet tones it is surprisingly easy to drink but the you find the surprise of the Messentrekker in the finish. The Messentrekker beer is in fact brewed with local cranberries from the Land of Tosse in Oss. The cranberry is a type of fruit that in itself is acidic. The Messentrekker is therefore light acidit with fine fruit tones.
It is therefore also a craft beer for people who are looking for something special and interesting. Above all, it is a special fruity beer without a one-dimensional sweet.
