Christoffer Olsson, our brewery intern, created a Red Ale (Cask).

Christoffer brewing his Red Ale. A one-time, limited experimental brew by Beerbliotek, a Swedish Craft Brewery Gothenburg, Sweden.

Our staff are the reason Beerbliotek is what it is – and what would a brewery be without it’s fair share of interns helping out from time to time? Meet Christoffer Olsson, our first intern to create a Cask Ale on our Experimental Brew kit!

After shadowing our brewers and getting his own hands dirty in our brewery, Christoffer created a Red Ale as part of his brewery education with us. 

The more we got to know Christoffer, the more we discovered his love for the UK – especially his love for British football teams, darts, and of course, Cask Ales! So it’s only fitting that he brewed a beer that’s perfect to mature in casks.

Before his Red Ale (Cask) release at Haket (Wednesday 16 feb from 4PM) and at our Tap Room (Friday 18th Feb from 12PM), we asked Christoffer a few questions about himself, his time with us, and his Red Ale on.


 Hej Christoffer!

So, why a brewery education? 

The reason I started my brewery education was just as simple as I’m very interested in beers and have always been. So I thought that it would be fun to learn more about my favourite drink.

When you’re not in the brewery, what are you doing?

When I’m not in the brewery I go to the gym, cheer for my favourite football team, GAIS, which Jimmy (lead brewer) hates! I of course also enjoy drinking good beer with my friends, and spending time with my lovely girlfriend.

Do you have a favourite Beerbliotek beer?

I really like Stocking Filler (#325, Schwarzbier). It was the top choice beer to have on my Christmas table. I also like your recent collab with Browar Stu Mostow (#328 Nopaque, West Coast IPA) the mouthfeel was great when I drank it.

Can you tell us about your beer?

I wanted to go back to the basics–no IPA’s or dry hopping–to try to make a decent Red Ale. Something that you want to drink with your friends, who “just want a beer” that isn’t an IPA, or something hoppy. Putting it into casks was very fun for me as it’s always the first pint I go for when I’m in England!

We give our brewery interns an opportunity to design and brew their own recipe, as part of their brewery education with us. Through our side project, which we call Beerbliotek Experimental Brews, they have the freedom to experiment, gain valuable experience, confidence and knowledge on how to work with beer, before they head out into the world.
