Back to normal after the Gothenburg Beer Week – Weekly Update

It has really been a busy time for us, and we’re sure, all the other breweries here in Gothenburg. What with the Gothenburg Beer Week past, as well as the Gothenburg Beer & Whisky Festival. So with that we’d like to say thank you to everyone involved in arranging the festivals here in Gothenburg, as well as for everyone who attended and made sure it was such a success.

20 643 visitors & 152 exhibitors

The Gothenburg Beer and Whisky Festival set a new record for attendance. 20643 people to be exact, as well as 152 exhibitors with beer & whisky. Again, thank you for those that attended. We hope you had as much fun as we did.

We’re very proud of Hip Hops, that won a bronze medal for the 3rd best IPA at the festival. If you’re looking to try it, then you can always order it from Systembolaget.se and have it delivered to your closest store.

While you’re at it, also have a look at our #FreshestCanInTheLand competition, for your chance to win two tickets to the All In Beer Festival 2016.

On the 2nd of May, we’ve got a new beer going into Systembolaget. Or actually three new beers, but more on the other two later. We’ve done four Berliners in the last while, and they seemed to get some positive reviews, especially one of them; “A Passion for Gingers”. In short it’s a Passion Fruit & Ginger Berliner, which we think is just in time for those warm days heading our way here in Sweden. Order yours from Systembolaget.se or have a look at where you can get hold of them on the shelf.

Not everyone who loves gingers loves ginger, but ginger lovers who do love gingers, love them with a passion. This beer is dedicated to our friends Bobbi and Steven.

Two additional beers that is going into Systembolaget on the 2nd of May, are our Cash Cow Brewing range. There’s two beers available for you to buy, or order from Systembolaget. Minimum Wage is a 4,5% Session IPA, whilst High Roller is an 8,0% Double IPA. They’re both mass produced small batch beers.

Brewing beer is not just about creativity, it's also a business. You can brew 150 different beers in three years, but you still need a cash cow.

This year it’s the first time we’ll be at the Kalmar Beer Festival, so we’re also looking forward to seeing everyone there. It’ll be Henrik and Linus joining the party.

We’ve had some questions about how to join the Beerbliotek Member’s Club. The easiest way to read about it, and join is by going to the facebook page, and signing up. The member’s club organises events down at the brewery and special tastings, so be sure not to miss out.

And with all that said, have a fantastic weekend.

FOLKÖL SHOP 

Hello Gothenburg 👋 

Fancy some fresh folköl (low abv beers) straight from the source?

The Folköl Shop is open tomorrow + every Friday 12-5PM for anyone to come through our brewery doors to pick up & take away.

FOLKÖL LIST
- MAKE TINY CHANGES TO EARTH -
Our latest IPA is tiny. We wanted to create a new low ABV beer, that was hazy, full-bodied and heavily dry-hopped. We threw Azacca, Amarillo, Columbus and Citra hops at it, which gives you aromas of stone fruit and ripe citrus. It’s fermented on London Fog yeast, amping up the haziness and even more of those fruity flavours.

- LI’L PILS -
Introducing Li’l Pils. Our unfiltered little Pilsner, with a lower ABV of 3,5% (Folköl). When we asked the brewers what the difference was between Li’l Pils and our standard Pils Pls, they replied, “It’s like your mother giving you a brother, but with a different father.

- WHOOP ASS -
For our fourth collaboration with @allinbrewing, we settled on a low alcohol Berliner Weisse with Orange Peel. We called it Whoop Ass, cause it’s in a can, and delivers a punch.
A sour with the addition of orange peel for a little more bitterness that refreshes with every sip.

- SESSION IPA -
We mash this low ABV beer warmer than usual to retain the malt backbone. We then add a massive dry-hop to enhance the aroma and flavour, for a beer you can enjoy all day.
A very aromatic hop taste with a clear bitterness, there’s some hints of grapefruit, pine, pineapple and spices.

Take Care & Stay Safe. See you tomorrow 🍻 
Open every Friday 12-5PM
Varholmsgatan 4, 414 74 Göteborg

Hello Sweden 🇸🇪

Here are this month's Systembolaget new beer releases. 10:00 Monday 3 May.

Sunny disposition -  New England Session IPA.

Sunny disposition is our second New England Session IPA. An ideal springtime beer for all of you hop heads looking for a fresh IPA to brighten up your day, until we can once again welcome the sun back to Sweden. A light, golden and hazy beer, loaded with oats for a silky smooth mouthfeel. Mosaic hops fill the nose with dank and herbal notes, followed by a fruity kick from Ekuanot hops. 

Square peg, round hole - White IPA.

Our brewers decided to mix things up, and pay homage to the misfit White IPA, a square peg in a round hole. A marriage of two distinct beer styles; the American IPA with its high hop character and the classic wheat-based Belgian Witbier, with its refreshing and spicy presence. We punched up the orange peel, and pulled back on the Citra and Cascade American Noble hop profiles, to give a pronounced orange citrus flavour, and let the light, earthy and floral spiciness from the coriander through.

Find them at Systembolaget.se/beerbliotek + selected stores.
