12 Feb Berliner Wise-Guy is out soon, but we’re getting more excited about cans – Weekly Update
This weekend it feels like we are all over the place. Adam is at Beavertown’s 4th birthday bash in the UK and Darryl is at the Bergen International Whisky and Beer Festival in Norway, while everyone else is at the brewery taking delivery of our first shipment of cans.
We attend the Bergen International Whisky & Beer Festival together with our Norwegian Distributor, The Palmer Group. So for all our Norwegian fans, be sure to be on the look-out for our beers in your local pubs. Hopefully they’ll start showing up soon enough.
Then we’ve also just added the Linköping Beer Expo to the list of festivals we will attend this year. See you there.
Then last but not least, we’ve been hearing rumours that Berliner is the new black. We’ve had two out in the last month that has proved to be very popular, and now we’re soon releasing a third, called Berliner Wise-Guy. Hope you enjoy it.
We’re getting excited about cans
Early this morning we took delivery of our first shipment of cans from our supplier Crown Cork. They have been fantastic in helping us get this right the first time.
For now, we’d like to know what you think about cans vs. bottles. Vote, and also if you’d like, send us a message with your comments.
Let us know what you think about Cans vs. Bottles
3,8% – Berliner Weisse
This wise-guy is a low ABV* beer, where the souring and malt profile deliver a slight lemon flavour and a delicate sourness.
*Alcohol by volume.
Linköping Beer Expo 12 March 2016
Linköping Beer Expo has also been added to the list of festivals we will be attending this year. At the moment it looks like three of us will make our way to the festival. As to which beers we’ll bring, well it’s not been decided yet, so watch this space for more info.
Växjö Beer Festival on the 9th of April
Actually Anders will again make his way to Växjö. Which beers he’s brining with him is still not clear, but there will definitely be one or two surprises.
For more information on the festival, have a look at their website.
Copenhagen Beer Celebration 13-14 May 2016
We’re happy to announce that we have been invited to this year’s Copenhagen Beer Celebration, held on the 13th and 14th of May. The beers we’re taking with us are still in the works and they will be announced closer to the time. So watch this space.
Looking for low alcohol beers? Or as we say in Sweden Folköl.
On our website, you can have a look at a map, where you can see which stores, such as ICA & Hemköp already stock our beer. Below you can see the three beers we have in stock.
3,4% – Coffee Stout
Collaboration stout between Beerbliotek, Dugges and Da Matteo Coffee. The Challenge was to create a low ABV coffee stout with the full flavour and mouth feel of an Imperial Stout. We used copious amounts of Da Matteo’s single origin coffee from Carmin Joven’s farm in Colombia to create the great roasted tones and aromas in this beer.
5,0% – Unfiltered Pilsner
This is our first attempt at a pilsner. We never attempted this style as homebrewers. It is generously hopped, and as with all of our beers, it is unfiltered and unpasteurised.
11,0% – Imperial Stout
The winter nights in Sweden are long, dark and cold. We created this beer to keep you company through those hours of eternal darkness.
5,5% – American pale Ale
For this Pale Ale we use Styrian Bobek Hops from Slovenia and Citra Hops from the US. This combines the gentle citrus tones of European noble hops with the more in your face aromas of US high alpha Hops.
5,5% – Fruit Pale Ale
We ferment this Pale Ale with a massive amount of Raspberries. With 30% Wheat in the malt bill, it has a slight sourness we think works nicely with the Raspberry aroma.
6,0% – IPA
Hip Hops contains a combination of what we consider to be the current “Hipster Hops”. A clean malt profile of Pale Malt and Carapils leaves a crisp clean finish, allowing the hops to really shine.
6,9% – Cascade & Columbus Hops
Cascade and Columbus Hops present fresh pine and citrus characteristics, combined with the coffee and liquorice tones from our blend of roasted malts. For us, it’s all the things a Black IPA should be.
