Fresh “Not Guilty” just packaged, more Passion for Sweden and a secret collab is on the way – Weekly Brewery Update

In this week’s brewery update we packaged a fresh batch of “Not Guilty! The Juice IPA”, we get ready to ship more Passion to Sweden via Systembolaget, and we show a glimpse of a very secret collaboration.

Fresh is the fresh.

Not Guilty! The Juice IPA, is our collaboration with Cervisiam Brewery in Norway. It was supposed to be a one-off brew, but after the feedback we received, we realised that in order to avoid a riot, we simply needed to brew it again 🙂

It has also been at Systembolaget in Sweden since April, and we’ve just packaged a new, very big batch. It will be shipping next week, so you will be able to get your hands on it if your store has run out. It’s also available to order on via Systembolaget.se 

Hello Sweden. Blondes joining Gingers at Systembolaget.

A Passion for Gingers was the first of our Berliners to go to Systembolaget. Recently it has also moved from a bottle to a can. A Passion for Strawberry Blondes is our sixth Berliner Weisse, and apart from also moving from a bottle to a can, it will also be released at Systembolaget on the 1st of August.

We have recently had both of these beers at our Tap Room, so they can be tried side-by-side. Gingers, as we call it for short is a standard Berliner Weisse, with the addition of Passion Fruit and Ginger, whereas Strawberry Blondes has Passion Fruit and Strawberries in the mix.

We hope you’ll enjoy both, when they finally appear side by side at Systembolaget, or order them to your local store on the 1st of August.

You can also order all of our other beers at Systembolaget to your closest store if they are not available on the shelves.

Shhhhh… not saying a word.

We really can’t say more than wow… look at that colour. Stay tuned for more news on this exciting collaboration after midsummer.

Best before and batch numbers.

During the past month we’ve added a batch number to the bottom of the cans, next to the best before date. The batch number is just a rolling number of the beers we brew and has no connection to a specific style.

The best before date differs depending on the beer style. Most of our IPAs and Pale Ales have a nine month best before date from when it was packaged. Other beers like our Eternal Darkness Imperial Stout has a 5 year best before date.

Saying sorry.

Book of Records was the fourteenth beer to go into a can, instead of a bottle. And as with all things in a production line, sometimes there’s teething problems.

We have had some feedback from some consumers about some cans of Book of Records with the best before date 20211108, which have in fact exploded… and for that we have to apologise.

And finally. Happy Midsummer.

At the end of this week it is midsummer, which is the period of time centered upon the summer solstice, and more specifically the Northern European celebrations that accompany the actual solstice. Raising and dancing around a maypole is an activity that attracts families and many others. In Sweden we’ll be making crowns from wild flowers and dancing around the maypole to our favourite song about frogs.

Whatever you’re doing during this time, we hope you’ll be drinking some great craft beer, and enjoy spending time with your family and friends.

Until next week, keep well.

🙂

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.
