Week 21 - Brewpubs and beer makers dinner

Big thanks to all the participants at last week's brewpub. So great to have so many talented chefs, bakers, cookbook writers, publishers, coal salesmen and beer drinkers gathered under the same roof. Let's do this again!

This week we're having the beer makers dinner with Speceriet on Wednesday. Still a few places available so book today and make sure you get your table. Bookings at speceriet.se or 08-662 30 60.

The brewpub is open again this Friday from 17-21. Next week we're hanging out at the Stockholm Brewers Festival at Orionteatern, just a few blocks from here so no brewpub then.

Week 20 - Time flies when you're having beers

Back from a fun weekend in Copenhagen. The Mikkeller Beer Celebration 2017 was a blast with great breweries taking some of their best beers and a lot of new releases, beers especially made for this festival. This is really the perfect place to be if you're into beer, whether or not you are working with it professionally or just enjoying the art of craft beer. To get to taste all these amazing beers and to talk to other brewers and enthusiasts transfers a lot of energy and inspiration. Big thanks to Mikkel, Jacob, Mia and the team for organizing such a fantastic festival.

This week we have two events coming up. On Wednesday and Thursday, Stockholm Brewers Festival are having a Tap takeover at Lådan where all the Stockholm-based breweries are taking over one or two taps. We're bringing our Drop Coffee Sour and our house beer Saison d'Etre. For you who haven't yet been to Lådan, go! It's Flippin Burgers sister restaurant, quality fast food and craft beer and soda on tap.

On Friday, we're opening up the Brewpub again and this time together with Natur & Kultur and three of their chefs and cook book writers. Jonas Cramby is celebrating the release of his new book Japansk Grillning by cooking Yakiniku and Yakitorib outside the brewery on a barbeque; Stefan Ekengren from Hantverket will serve deep-fried Hasselback potatoes; and Petrus Jakobsson will make some of his delicious Catalanes. You will also be able to buy all of their cook books. So beer, books and food down in the brewery this Friday! Doors open from 17-21.

And next week on Wednesday it's time for Öl-Bonanza at Speceriet. Five of our beers paired with delicious food from Speceriet. Sittings at 18.00 and 20.30. Book your table at 08-6623060 or at speceriet.se. There will be some drop-in places as well but if you snooze you lose!

Week 18 - Tallin Craft Beer, Jester King and new Södermalm IPA

Today Head of Stuff-Tomas is loading the van with goodies including George Brett IPA, Just the Pips, Hallon Sour and Drop Coffee Sour and taking the ferry over to Tallin to take part in the Tallin Craft Beer Weekend.

Meanwhile the brew team are brewing the next edition in the Södermalm IPA series, showcasing a couple more of their favourite hops - this time Citra and Centennial. The beer will be ready just in time for the summer.

Next week, farmhouse brewery Jester King from Texas will come and visit us down in the brewery. We plan to brew a rustic Swedish farmhouse ale together using a blend of our house cultures and then age it in oak barrels. We're so excited to collaborate with this amazing brewery!

Week 17 - Beers, festivals and stuff going on

Last Friday we pre-released one of our new Cellar Series beers on Katarina Ölkafé. Barrel-Aged Hallonsour is a Berliner Weisse aged in Champagne barrels for nine months and further three months with organic raspberries. A more funky and complexed version of our regular Hallonsour and one of the beers we're bringing to some of the up-coming beer festivals.

Another beer we just laid our hands on is the Saison with oysters and kombu we did with Brew By Numbers. The 75cl bottles arrived yesterday and we're really siked.

First out is the Tallin Craft Beer Weekend, 5-6th of May. The festival is organized by Pohjala Brewery and the biggest craft beer festival in the Baltic region. The weekend after that it's time for the new version of CBC which now is called Mikkeller Beer Celebration, 12-13th of May. And last but not least, Stockholm Brewers Festival Katarina Kegger, 2nd-3rd of June. Really looking forwards to attend all of these. Buy your tickets now and join us for some awesome beer celebrations!i

This Friday the brewpub is open as usual and Katarina Ölkafé are cooking some delicious smoked and stout-braised brisket. Veggie alternative is grilled sweet potatoes with honey and goat cheese. We also have some great posters of our labels made by Marcus Gunnar Pettersson left so kill no less than three birds with one stone and get your Friday beers, food and posters at the brewery!

Week 15 - What we do

Last Friday we kept the brewpub closed because of the terrible attack on our hometown. Our thoughts and sympathies goes out to all the families and loved ones of those who have been a part of this tragedy. We're proud of the way that the people of Stockholm stayed calm and opened their homes to help their fellow citizens #openstockholm. Now we go back to live our lives as normal as possible.

This week we're doing some day-to-day work in the brewery, driving the draft, bottling the Besserweisser and brewing more of the Hallon Sour. Meanwhile our own Tomas (the one with the beard) is brewing with Other Half on the other side of the Atlantic. Can't wait to find out what they're up to over there! He promised to keep us updated on Instagram so we'll just have to wait and see.

This weekend we're celebrating Easter on various places in the world so no brewpub this week but we'll be back again next week, 21st April, with Whitmans Deli and of course some awesome beer.

Good day to you all!

Week 14 - Beef, beers and beats

Firstly, thanks to everyone who came to the brewpub on Friday when we raised 600 dollars for People Like Us Brewery in Denmark, which will be staffed by people with autism and people with other vulnerabilities. 

Mimmi, Olly and Michel cooked up a storm with the centrepiece being a Beef Anything But Bourguignon (ten different red wines, none from Burgundy) Liene (Olly's better half) provided a Moroccan lentil stew as a veggie option (thanks babe!)

This was made possible thanks to kind donations from our trade customers who donated ingredients and positive vibes. Thanks to Christian and the team at Fotografiska, Chris at Whitmans Deli, Göran and team at Svartengrens, the Urban Deli Nytorget massive and last but definitely not least, the Beatles butcher boys at Lennart Och Bror for that kick ass aged Chump steak! Also great thanks to Bageri Petrus for the wonderful bread to soak up the juices.

The guys at People Like Us were super happy and it feels really nice to be able to support fellow brewers a bit.

Some of you may have tried the test batch on the opening of the brewpub this year but now the real deal is out and it's tasting even better. A Berliner Weisse, 3,5%, with flowery Bolivian coffee from Drop Coffee and just a bit dry hopped. We will bottle it on Wednesday so keep an eye out for it at bars, restaurants and folkölsbutiker.

Brewpub this week is with our friends and neighbours from Hummus Reggev. For those of you who haven't yet been to their place, go! It's on Ringvägen 145, they're making the best hummus and soon they're opening a new place downtown.

We'll also be pouring some of our beers, including the new Drop Coffee Sour, at the Friday after work at Urban Deli Nytorget with lovely Johanna and her staff. Come and meet us there or pop down to the brewery or do both!

Have a good week!

Week 11 - New record night at the brewpub

Last Friday the queue to the bar was half way through the brewery. So nice to see so many of you and please come again and bring your friends. The more the merrier! Brewpub again this Friday with food from Katarina Ölkafé.

Some of you may have tasted our new One off beer Fatöl at the Brewpub. It's a beer that is halfway between a lager and an ale, brewed with a clean ale yeast and fermented at a lower temperature than a conventional ale for a more crisp and clean flavour. It is hopped with classic German hops varieties and designed to pair effortlessly with food. The beer was brewed with Mathias Dahlgrens new vegetarian restaurant Rutabaga in mind and it's also one of the places you can find the beer in.

We're also glad to announce that spring is coming and we're making Hallon Sour again! 

Have a great week!

Week 10 - COFFEE SOUR IN MAKING

What a great start for Nedward and Saison de Brett the Elder at Systembolaget last Friday! Thanks to all of you who bought the beers. They sold out pretty fast in the webshop but there are still some bottles left in the wine specialist shops in Stockholm and Malmö. We're aiming to brew more of the Cellar Series beers. The brewers love to brew them and we love to drink them, it's as simple as that!

This week we're brewing a big batch of Coffee Sour, the beer we did a test batch of a few weeks ago. It's a kettle sour beer with lots of coffee both in the masch, in the boil and in the lagering tanks. We use a Bolivian coffee from Drop coffee called Rodriguez, with sweet floral ands citrusy flavour which works really well in this sour beer. Yesterday Johanna and Lisa from Drop Coffee were here, delivering the coffee and tasting the pilot beer which they liked a lot. The beer will be ready in about four weeks and out in pubs and restaurants in Stockholm, keep an eye out for it.

Last but not least, thanks to Reggev Hummus for the food last week and thanks to all of you who came and hung out. This Friday Jonna from Eat with Jonna is bringing her tasty smörrebröd down to the brewery. Doors open from 17-21, welcome!

Week 9 - New website and new releases at Systembolaget

Welcome to our new website!! Here you can find more information about us, our beers, collaborations, events etc. We also have a calender where you can check all the dates the brewpub is open this spring and under News you'll find this news letter. We hope you'll like it and that you'll find all the information that you need.

Over 10 000 visitors at Uppsala Beer & Whisky last weekend! Thanks for a great festival and thanks to all of you who came to see us.

It's been a while since we released something at Systembolagets limited release but this Friday we're launching no less than two beers. One of them is Nedward, which we have talked about quite a lot the last few weeks (but it is that good!). It's a Flanders Red with Raspberries, aged in Champagne barrels for 12 month and then further aged for three month with organic raspberries. A sweet/sour beer with a big raspberry aroma. The other is Saison de Brett the Elder, a Saison brewed with elderflower that we picked in parks around the brewery, aged with Brettanomyces yeast for a year. Expect funk, acidity and flowery goodness! We're only releasing 500 bottles of each beer so don't wait too long to get yours. The release is this Friday (3/3) in Systembolagets wine specialist shops and in the webshop.
