We’ve released a new DIPA with a new label and some new versions of some of our favourite beers – Weekly Brewery Update

It’s been a busier week than normal in the design department, as it was in the brewery. We’ve been planning more cans and labelling those cans, so we sent off a lot of tests. The paper, the glue and the laminate has to recyclable, but we solved that part, which was good news. More on that further down.

Sitting at the De Molen Beer Festival in 2011.

This morning I got one of those Facebook reminders of what I was up to 5 years ago. Apparently on this day we were at the De Molen Beer Festival in Bodegraven, just south of Amsterdam.

In the photo is myself, Adam, Richard and our good friend Steven (Remember him from A Passion for Gingers?), and I’m sure a lot of discussions on starting a brewery happened that day.

This festival has always been one of our favourites we attended before we started the brewery. We made a lot of friends at these festivals, and I personally do miss attending festivals just to drink beer 🙂

A New DIPA – Passion Fruit of the Loins

The range of beers that we brew the most of is obviously IPAs, 40 different ones at the last count. Closely followed by Pale Ales (32), Double IPAs (14) and one Triple IPA. That means a lot of design work to make them not all look the same. That’s why you will start seeing updated designs for some of our IPAs, PAle Ales and DIPAs, as for this one; Passion Fruit of the Loins.

Out into the mouths of the public, my brain child. As you are nothing but the Passion fruit of my loins, and I, your creator...

This one is currently available at some of our customers, and will soon be released in cans as well. It’s actually been canned already, and will be labelled in the following week.

Versions of Beer

We have just brewed our 171th different beer, which is why all of them have numbers on the labels and tap tags. What we’re also started doing now are versions of some of our favourite beers.

In the last while we created Hip Hops Mango. Which really isn’t a new beer, it’s the normal Hip Hops recipe, where we just added Mango. It was however only available in kegs at bars, restaurants and festivals.

The next version that we’ve done this last while is Eternal Darkness Barrel Aged. What that means for the numbers is that Eternal Darkness is #126, so the barrel aged version is #126.1 and all other version will be treated the same. #126.1 is available in cans soon.

Two new versions in the making at the moment is Bobek Citra Peach #05.1 and Single Hop Mosaic Apricot #120.1 which will also be available in cans.

One extra little note is that these beers are in very limited supply as one-off batches, so we added the size of the batch to the labels, for instance 330ml of 1000L of which some goes into kegs and the rest into cans or bottles.

So we’re expecting our canning line to be busier than normal. Which is very good news for the environment and the quality of the beer.

More low ABV Beers

One of our local Supermarkets close to the brewery has recently bought a lot of our low ABV beers, and are running some specials. I really like what those cans look like stacked like that. There is some more good news if you’re a fan of low ABV beers or as we say in Sweden Folköl, we’re releasing a new one soon. But more on that later…

Next week we’ll be testing the labelling of the cans and showing what they look like. We’re also hoping to release them very shortly.

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

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.
