Installing the canning line – Weekly Update

Last week our cans arrived, and the week before our canning line. This last week we kept on walking past the cans, the canning line and thought about the week ahead. Just installing the canning line and getting the beers in cans out to Systembolaget and the pubs and bars that stock our beer.

So right now there is not much to say except that we’re installing the canning line in the week ahead. Expect some beer spilled on the floor, cans bent, a bit of frustration, but all in all a learning process, so we can install the system together with our suppliers Wild Goose and Crown Cork and afterwards get some cans out in the market for those that love cans, and for those that will come to love cans.

Darryl is back from his trip to the Bergen Whisky and Beer Festival, as well as Adam, who joined Beavertown in the UK for their 4th birthday party. So we’re all going full speed ahead.

But at a time when a brewery is running on less than full speed, and one or two people may even not feel 100%, it’s good to know you have people you can depend on. In steps Axel Hagman, one of our brewers, and one of the most trusted employees. If you want to get things done, he’s your man. We’re happy he’s on our side, and hope he’s with us for a long, long time. Thank you Axel.

Next Festival up is Linköping. The list of beers will be released soon, but it looks like we’ll be launching our cans at the festival. So there’s a hint as to what we’ll bringing.

Some more information available below.

Have a great weekend.

If you could name a beer, what would you call it?

The latest issue of c/o Hops magazine has a very interesting title, “Vad ska vill kalla vår öl?” or in English, what will we call our beer? With that, we decided to ask you to tell us what you would name a beer, if you had a chance to name a beer.

Fill in the form and tell us what you would name the beer and why. We will then credit the name to you on the label if we choose your name. We do make a lot of new beers, and your name might just suit our new beer, so good luck.

For those that don’t read or understand Swedish, there’s another great beer magazine available for free on the reading platform Issuu called Ferment.

    Include your email, if you want us to get in touch.

    “In with the New” Double IPA is out next week

    One of our latest Single Batch brews is this 8,0% Double IPA, which was the first beer we brewed in 2016 and the first double IPA in the new Kungsten Brewery. It is a very hoppy beer, with a malt base enhanced with wheat and oats. Look for it end of next week out in your favourite pubs and restaurants.

    Upcoming Festivals

    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.

    For more information on the expo, have a look at their website, or get information on tickets here.

    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.

    For more information, follow CBC on Facebook, or get hold of your tickets here, as there’s still some available for some sessions, then we’ll see you in Copenhagen.

    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.

    Session IPA

    3,5% – Cascade & Wakatu hops

    We mash this low ABV beer warmer than usual to retain the malt backbone. We then hop it with loads of Citra and Motueka to give aroma and flavour to a beer you can enjoy all day.

    View ratings on Ratebeer or Untappd.

    Sockerbruket Saison

    3,5% – Farmhouse Style Saison

    We ferment this Saison at a high temperature to get a nice spice from the yeast. We then accentuate it with a small dryhop of Chinook hops from America for a gentle spice and refreshing citrus tones.

    View ratings on Ratebeer or Untappd.

    Unperial Stout

    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.

    Finding our beers at Systembolaget.

     

    On our website, you can have a look at a map, where we feature the stores that will have our beers on their shelves. If you live in other parts of Sweden, then you can follow this link to order the beers directly from Systembolaget.se.

    Pilsner One-O-One

    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.

    Order from Systembolaget.

    Eternal Darkness

    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.

    Order from Systembolaget.

    Bobek Citra

    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.

    Order from Systembolaget.

    Black IPA

    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.

    Order from Systembolaget.

    Raspberry Wheat

    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.

    Order from Systembolaget.

    Hip Hops

    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.

    Order from Systembolaget.
