The week in pictures

Speaking of undoing the damage from Christmas, a Dutch brewer is using discarded fir trees to make its latest seasonal IPA as part of its zero waste Lowlander Tree to Table recycling initiative.

Around 600 kilos of needles needed to produce the 2019 batch of Winter IPA. The brewery has already partnered with organisations such as the Amsterdam Botanical Gardens, Amsterdam’s RAI Convention Centre, and restaurants, who have pledged to donate their trees after the festive period. Lowlander is also offering to collect any unwanted trees from people who wish to donate, but needs is crowdfunding to help with the collection and processing of all the trees.
