We brewed a batch of GBG Beer Week 2017, A Moment of Clarity, and celebrate a year of cans. – Weekly Brewery Update

This past week we brewed our version of the GBG Beer Week beer 2017. We had a lot of people walking through the brewery and watching the process first hand, while we’re getting ready to celebrate one year of cans.

One year of cans.

It was a very strategic decision for our brewery to move into cans. Next Wednesday it would be exactly one year since we canned the first Single Hop Mosaic cans at our Kungssten Brewery. We planned to do four different version at first, and midway through 2016 we added labelled cans to our collection.

The labelled cans have allowed us to do very small batches in cans. Pre-printed cans need a 50 000 minimum order, and that’s a tough order to fill for a small craft brewery. The smallest batch we did in a can this last year was the Eternal Darkness Barrel Aged version. Just 200 litres. And since we added labelled cans to our packaging option we have done 21 other beers to our can collection.

We hope you enjoy our beers in cans, as you have in bottles. In the end the cans are better for the beer and better for the environment.

In the third quarter of 2016 we had 12 different cans in our can collection.

Brewing the GBG Beer Week 2017. A Moment of Clarity.

This year we were asked if we wanted to brew the official GBG Beer Week beer for 2017. It’s some big shoes to fill, if you take into account that the GBG Beer Week beer for 2016 was rated as one of the top ten IPAs in the world.

Last week we brewed our version for the first time. It’s a Session IPA on 4,7%, and we called it “A Moment of Clarity”.

The release will be at the brewery on the 16th of March. Everyone is welcome to join us in tasting this beer at our Tap Room, before everyone else gets their hands on it the following day at all the pubs and restaurants and Systembolaget.

Doors open at 18h00 but if you are a Beerbliotek Members Club member, you can get it one hour before, at 17h00 (So there’s a good reason to join, right?). Read more about the event.

GBG Beerbliotek Week. Troublemakers Party.

During GBG Beer Week this year, we will have no less than eleven events on the go, finishing the week with the Gothenburg Beer & Whisky Fair, which usually draws just short of 20 000 visitors over the final weekend.

So let’s get a party started! We teamed up with our good pals from Odd Island Brewing, Restaurant 2112 and The Red Lion to create the party of the century. ONLY 120 exclusive tickets available, so get in quick! They go on sale the 14th of February.

Tickets will be available for our Beerbliotek Members Club members one day earlier. (It’s a good reason to join them as well)

Live: Troublemakers – One of Gothenburg’s finest and most iconic Punk Rock bands, they have been around since 1981. They will perform a unique gig for the lucky ones with a ticket. This will be a rare chance to see the giants of the scene during the GBG Beer Week.

Beer: A special beer brewed for this event called Göteborgswits (only two kegs) will be served together with other liquid hoppiness from the Beerbliotek Tap Room (Alcohol free options are available).

Food: Conny from The Red Lion and Coffe from Restaurant 2112 will put their heads together to create some really special burgers (meat and veg) just for this occasion. Come Hungry!

Price: 250 kr (Only 120 tickets available!!) Get your tickets here.

At Beerbliotek we have a passion for gingers.

During 2016, we decided to brew a Berliner. The first we have done. We called it “Berliner Wise-Guy”. That beer has then become the base beer for all the Berliners that were to follow.

Not everyone who loves gingers loves ginger, but ginger lovers who do love gingers, love them with a passion. This beer is dedicated to our friends Bobbi and Steven.

A Passion for Gingers” has a fruity & tangy flavour with hints of Passion Fruit, Lemon and Ginger.

It is available at Systembolaget in Sweden, so you can easily order it to your closest store. It was also our second Berliner in our range of Berliners, which is now up to 9 different styles and illustrations.

And finally

At the last count we’re exporting to fourteen countries, which means we get to see our products photographed in a myriad of different ways. A lot of people try and out-do the next person, and there’s some really creative photos out there.

On of our favourites is Beer Farts, on Instagram. Not just the photographs, but also the comments. Well worth following his beer adventures.

 

That’s it from us for this week. Until next week keep well.

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?

Introducing Linda Bengtström, who started as an intern with us mid-January, and will be here through to the summer.

She's studying Brewing Technique at Nynäshamn, and is one of the few Swedes who have earned the title of “Cicerone” after passing the @cicerone Certification Program last year. On top of that she's the Assistant Manager at @brewdoggoteborg. That's where she got to know us, and one of the reasons why she's here. Wish her luck!

We chat about Linda’s Craft Beer journey and reveal a sneak peak of a recent project on our blog. Follow the link in our bio.
