Beer release #227. Mankini is a Sour Ale with Tropical Fruit

A can packshot of Mankini Tropical Fruit Sour Ale, brewed by Swedish Craft Brewery Beerbliotek.

This Sour Ale is inspired by the hottest Swedish summer of all time. We took inspiration from the tropics and added Mango, Peach, Pineapple and Apricot and dedicated it to the greatest Brazilian* bathing suit of all time. (*some facts may be factually incorrect.)

At the moment we have done no less than fifteen different Sour Ales, with different fruit additions. All of them have a similar Malt profile, and range between 3,5% – 4,2% alcohol.

In our assortment our Sour Ales have a different treatment when it comes to label design, in that they have an illustration inspired by the fruit. The model in this beer is our sales manager Henke, who took one for the team.

Available at Supermarkets

Our low ABV Beers are always all available to supermarkets here in Sweden, and now there are three different ways to get hold of them too. If you’re an ICA Supermarket, then you can search the ICA lokalportal, alternatively you can use Stockfiller. The third option is always just to contact us directly.

About Beerbliotek

We are Beerbliotek, a Craft Brewery founded in Gothenburg (Sweden) by four friends from different parts of the world. Our brewing philosophy is simple… keep brewing new beers that we, ourselves, would want to drink.

Our name is derived from the Latin word bibliothēca, meaning library, or a collection of books. A Beerbliotek, for us, would then mean a beer library, or a collection of beer.

Bockstreet’s Bock, Alright! 6,8% Maibock.

Our brewers went back to Classics to brew a traditional German Maibock.

A well balanced, honey-coloured, medium bodied beer with a bold malt base. Bready sourdough rye aromas and sweet toffee, caramel biscuit notes in the mouth. Sun blushed fruit and orange peel from selected German hops, Mandarina Bavaria and Hallertau Mittelfruh, balances the smooth sweet finish. With a mild bitterness, and a light alcohol warming sensation, this is designed for slowing down.

Heading out the brewery doors today for bars and restaurants in Sweden, and is currently available for all our usual Export markets all over the world. Released at @systembolaget 1st April.

Hello Sweden! Today two new beers are now available at Systembolaget online and in stores all over Sweden.

Even more of exactly the same - 7,5% Double IPA

Citra, Cascade, Columbus and Cashmere hops take the lead in this light, golden and bruised pineapple coloured DIPA while vanilla, passion fruit and bright fresh citrus notes hit the nose. Big tropical and stone fruit flavours are rounded out with sweet notes and a grassy bitterness making this juicy beer surprisingly easy to drink. 

Crossing the streams in the dark - 6,5% Black IPA

Aromas of chocolate and coffee lean towards dried red fruits and then waves of mango. Fruitiness from the yeast enhances the dank, orange and grapefruit hop character, all playing together for a beer more IPA than black.

Both beers are now available to all good bars and restaurants in Sweden, and the rest of the world, at all our usual export markets.
