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

Big thanks to Austin Davis and Mark Stein for this great initiative! Just the perfect mix of beer, music, food and lovely people. Well done and we can't wait to the next one.

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 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!
