Systembolaget, Folköl and festivals galore – Weekly Update

On Monday the 1st we released two new beers at Systembolaget, and all we can say is thank you, you seem to like them. It was also great meeting so many new people at the Nöjesguiden Beer Festival. We had a blast. Then this past week we also updated our website to make it easier for you to find our beers at Systembolaget, as well as getting hold of our Folköl or Low Alcohol Beers.

Thank you for Nöjesguiden.

 

First up, thanks to everyone who joined us at the Nöjesguiden beer Festival last weekend. We met a lot of new faces, made a lot of new friend. Compared to the year before when most people were looking for IPA and Pale Ale, this year it was our Imperial Stout and Berliners that seemed popular. Always appreciate the support.

Secondly, congratulations to our friends who were next to us the whole weekend, Värmdö Bryggeri who won Micro Beer of the year this year.

Upcoming Festivals

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.

Beavertown on the 13th of February

 

When we say we, we actually mean Adam, as he’ll be making his way across with some beer to join the other 30 breweries for this big bash.

Set the date 13 of February aside and get yourself down to Beavertown, for what they’re calling their Beaver My Valentine party. It’s going to be awesome, hope to meet some new faces, and potential fans of Beerbliotek beer in the UK.

Follow them on Facebook or Twitter for more info.

Bergen Whisky & Beer Festival 11-13 February

 

Darryl will be travelling to the festival, which is also the first time Beerbliotek will be in Norway. So we’re looking forward to introducing our beers to the Norway market, as we have signed an agreement with the Palmer Group who will be our distributors in Norway.

If you want to know more about the festival, then follow them on Facebook.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
