Week 33 - Events and Festivals coming up

So no brewpubs coming up but we do have some events and festival to look forward to. This Thursday we're releasing our new Södermalm Session (4,9%) at the From tap to tank event at Bishops Arms Folkungagatan. A light bodied, thirst quenching and fruity Session IPA, hopped with Citra and Mosaic and kegged just a few hours before. We're also bringing Sweet Mistress (a Salted Caramel Imperial Stout 9,4% which we brewed together with Sori Brewing in Tallin) and Stockholm Gold 4,2% (a light and crisp pale ale with fruity German and US hops).

On Saturday you'll find us pouring beer at the Rub-a-Dub festival at Vintervikens Trädgård. Great Reggae and Dancehall, food by Vintervikens Trädgård and beer by us. The perfect Saturday entertainment we say. Tickets at  https://billetto.se/en/e/vinterviken-rub-a-dub-tickets-195781

Next weekend (25-26/8) we're driving down to Helsingborg and Brewskival and two weeks after that (8-9/9) it's time for Beavertown's Extravaganza in London. And more coming up in October and November (we're working on an event schedule for our homepage).

Week 32 - Brewpub on hold

A couple of years ago, Stockholm Brewing Co. took the Stockholm Council to court to win the right to serve samples of beer direct to the public at our brewery, as per European law. This was both aimed at facilitating the public's access to our beers but also for the beer industry in Sweden, as a test case. We won and the rest is history.

Over the last two years, thousands of people have swung by on Friday After Works to drink some fresh and local beer, more or less straight from the brew tank. It has also been a great opportunity for us to work together with local chefs and restaurants who has been taking over the kitchen and serving awesome food to match our beers.

We've really enjoyed having direct contact with our customers and together we've achieved something very special. Unfortunately, we are having creative differences with our landlords and for this reason, the brewpub is on hold until further notice.

However, you can still drink our beer very locally to the brewery at the following places: Brewdog Södermalm, Bleck, The Plant, Fäviken Korvkiosk, Katarina Ölkafe, Whitman's Deli, Reggev Hummus, Lily's Burgers, Urban Deli, Bistroteket, Indio Kitchen and Bishops Arms Folkungagatan amongst other. We also have festivals, events and tap takeover planned in during the fall and we hope that you'll come and meet us there (dates and more info coming up on FB and Instagram). 

Week 27 - Thanks to

So fun to see so many of you last Friday. A big thanks to all of you beer lovers who have been joining us for Friday after works and making the brewpub what it is today. Meeting you face to face and talk about what we love is important to us and we hope we will see you again in August. Also a big thank you to all of our dear friends (especially Katarina Ölkafé,  Reggev Hummus and Whitmans Deli) who have been feeding us and our guests with amazing food, let's keep on working together!

The brewpub will be back again on August 11th with new beers and food from Hummus Reggev. Check the calendar for more brewpub dates in the autumn.

This Friday on the 7th of July we're releasing 10 000 bottles of our favorit fox beer at Systembolaget (thank you Marcus Gunnar for the label!). Hallon Sour will be available in stores all over Sweden. Check here to find which store is closest to you or be ready to order in webshop at 10.00 the same day.

News blog will take a 3 weeks break but you can follow us on Instagram for updates. Have a nice summer!

 

Week 26 - Last brewpub before summer break

It's soon July and time for summer holidays. The brewery will keep on pumping out beer but we're taking a five week break from the brewpub after this Friday, back again on the 11th of August.

Mauritz and Agnes from Karshamra mat och trädgård will be delivering this seasons first vegetables bag. Read more about what they do and how you can order your vegetables from them here or even better, come down and speak to them directly at the brewery. Doors open from 17-21, food from Whitmans Deli. Welcome!

Karshamra vegetables are the best!

Week 25 - New Cellar Series beer and Elderflower picking in the parks

Yesterday we bottled a new Cellar Series beer, a sibling to Nedward you can say. It's a darker sour beer which we've aged in barrels for nine months and then further two months with organic sour cherries. Expect medium/high acidity, big fruit flavor and all of the complexity that wood-ageing brings. The beer will condition in bottles for a couple of months so look out for it this fall.

This years Elderflower is finally ready to be picked, a little later than in 2016. Last year we did two beers with it, one was Fläder Saison and the other one Rosendals Trädgårdssour, a Berliner Weisse with Rhubarb and Elderflower. This year, depending on how much we get, we're aiming to use the flowers in hopefully two beers and perhaps putting some into barrels as well. We'll be wandering around Vitabergsparken this afternoon so feel free to come and help us with the picking today

Week 24 - Hallon Sour to the people!

Good news y'all! We're releasing our favourite summer beer at Systembolaget on the 7th of July! Hallon Sour is a tart, refreshing kettle sour with a generous addition of organic raspberries in secondary fermentation. Beautiful pink/red color and huge raspberry aroma and flavor. Oh and did we mentioned that we use ALOT of raspberries in this one (like 70g/liter)?

As you may or may not know we also have three of our core beers available at Systembolaget. Saison d'Etre (5%) is a classic Saison, light body, lingering bitterness and with a heavy Belgian yeast character. Hop Hound (4,7%), a light and refreshing session IPA, packed with our favourite citrus fruity American hops. And the IPA (6%), our first beer ever to make - English in style with an orange marmalade hop character and a pronounced malt flavour. A well balanced IPA designed to pair easily with food.  

Brewpub open this week from 17-21 and hopefully with an awesome foodtruck parked outside, more info on Instagram during the week. Next week (Midsommar) we're closed but open again on the 30th. 

Week 23 - Pics from the Stockholm Brewers Festival

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!
