beerbliotek + WhiteFrontier
How’s one meant to grow when walls keep caving in?
Some people can moonwalk, some people can breakdance and some people can even go bananas. Chris from WhiteFrontier can do the Tubeman.
This is our first collaboration with our friends from WhiteFrontier in Switzerland. This 6,9% hazy IPA is creamy and dank with aromas of Zest, Mango and Coconut. The taste is Peach and Coconut, finishing off with a surprisingly pleasant hop burn.
We know Chris and Katie through various festivals throughout Europe. It’s always a good time when we get together. After a year of talking about getting a beer on with them, they came to Sweden in August for Brewskival, a fantastic outdoor beer festival in Helsingborg. So the stars aligned for us, and together we brewed up this crazy Coconut Milk IPA.
With the IPA trend still in full flow, we decided to add another juicy IPA to our assortment. We both wanted to brew something fruity, and to try out some new stuff. So we landed on Coconut. Adam scoured the Interwebs and found a supplier for organic powder, we carefully chose hops we thought would compliment the thick fruitiness of the coconut, and we went from there! This is the second time we’ve brewed with Coconut in an IPA, our first being “Crazy In The Coconut #189, as part of our mission to brew new and exciting beers and experiment with what an IPA really is.
So why the long name we hear you ask? Why is there a Tubeman breaking down walls? And what the heck does it have to do with this beer?! Well, Chris from WhiteFrontier is a maniac, basically. At FreshFest in Holland in mid 2019, he broke out his “tube man” dance. It’s been a staple at festivals since then. And that long name comes from a song called “Camp Adventure” by Delta Sleep. Adam contacted Chris to ask what name we wanted to give the beer. He was listening to the song at the time, so we took one of the lines from the song. The longer the better, obviously.
WhiteFrontier are a topline brewery coming out of Switzerland with some great people working there, as well as their great beers. For their entire team, beer is exploring, being creative and scientific at the same time.
As WhiteFrontier would say, “Onto Your Next Adventure”

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.
