Dichello Distributors Welcomes Arrival of Heineken Silver

By February 25, 2023Connecticut, Top News

Heineken Silver, 4% ABV, is crafted using an ice-cold brewing process and is made with 100% natural ingredients. By brewing Heineken Silver at -1°C, more cold haze is allowed to form and be filtered out, removing proteins and rough-tasting tannins and leaving a refreshing taste.

Dichello Distributors welcomed Heineken Silver to its portfolio, sold via the Orange-based distributor throughout New Haven County, Fairfield County and the town of New Milford. Called “a new beer for a new generation of beer drinkers,” Heineken Silver offers a lighter style with lower alcohol content, a trend growing at 40% in the last five years across all age groups and especially among millennials, Gen Y and Gen Z drinkers, the company said. Heineken Silver is a 4% ABV lager, crafted using an ice-cold brewing process at -1°C to offer a crisp flavor and subtle finish, calling the new brew “balanced to provide a lighter drinking profile that works across a wide spectrum of drinking occasions.” Heineken Silver has been brewed with the same ingredients used across the brand’s 149-year heritage: water, barley malt, hop extract and ale yeast. To ensure its taste meets the needs of a new generation of drinkers, its taste profile, according to Heineken, is “unmistakably aligned to the classic original taste profile” of Heineken classic lager. Heineken Global Craft and Brew Master Willem van Waesberghe said, “Heineken Silver was brewed to be an all-around crowd-pleaser and the perfect partner to celebrate authentic moments of joy and real beer moments.”
