Week 6 - Stockholm Brewing Co. goes to Portland and Miami

This week our head brewer Michel and the Stockholm Brewers Fest team are off to Portland to visite some breweries and brew some beers. First stop is Cascade Brewing where we're making the official Stockholm Brewers Festival 2018 (and 2019!) beer. Something with elderflower and something with plums is planned in but more details later on.

Next week Michel will meet and brew with the guys from New Belgium, another collaboration we very much looking forward to taste! The time in between will be carefully spent tasting as many beers in as many breweries and tap rooms as possible, going to ishockey games and perhaps a fishing trip.

Meanwhile Michel's doing Portland our Head of stuff-Tomas will be pouring our beer at the Wake Fest in sunny Miami. The Wake Fest is the J. Wakefield Brewing three year anniversary festival with over a hundred local, national and internationally known breweries.

Week 3 - New brewery, new restaurant!!

It's finally official, papers are signed  - we're building a new brewery with tap room and restaurant. After almost a year of looking around for the perfect place we're now glad to say that we're moving to Gärdet in September. During spring and summer 2018 we will together with Stockholms Hamnar renovate a 860 square meter space in an old brick building in Frihamnen.

The new place will give us opportunity to expand, something that's not possible for us in our currant space on Södermalm. Since we haven't been able to have our brewpub open for the last 6 months we're now very much looking forward to be able to open the doors to our very own restaurant and bar.

The plan is to move in September and hopefully open in the beginning of October. It's going to be a fun and exiting year! For news and updates,  follow us on Instagram  and FB.

Week 51 - Happy Holidays

Just in time for Christmas we're botteling this new red coloured Cellar Series beer, a saison aged in French oak barrels for no less than two years (!) and then further fermented with grapes (mostly Nordica) from Rosendals Trädgård. It will now bottle condition and develope more character and funk for at least three month, hopefully to be ready to drink in March or April.

To sum it up - 2017 has been a year with a lot of great beer festivals, fun collaborations, new beers and new beer styles, tap takeovers, beer makers dinners, and brewpubs on tour. Now we're taking a well earned brake during the holidays but will be back in January to tell you all about our new plans for 2018. Merry Christmas! 

Week 48 - Movember at Clarion and "Hear hear to ONE year" at Folk & Friends

Again, big thanks to Lådan for hosting our brewpub last Thursday. Hopefully we can continue with these events after Christmas as well.

This week we're brewing a new batch of the Elderflower Sour. We finally got our hands on some flowers (not the easiest to find in the end of November) and so we're looking forward to start the new year with a fresh batch the Elder Sour. Mean while we're packaging another sour beer this Friday, a classic Gose 4,5% with unrefined sea salt and coriander seeds. Tart and salty and refreshing.

On Thursday we will be at Clarion Hotel trimming our beards and drinking our beers. 10 kr of every sold Stockholm Brewing Co. beer at Clarion will go the Movember Foundation. After work and free beard trimming on Thursday at 17, see event here.

Last Friday the brew team went to brew an oyster beer together with the nice gang at Örebro Brygghus. Dark, full and chocolatey with a touch of sea, sounds pretty good! In the evening they had a Tap takeover at Örebro Ölcafé. Big thanks to Örebro Brygghus and Örebro Ölcafé for the warm hospitality. Next Friday Örebro Brygghus will come to our place to brew a hoppy lager and on Saturday (11/11) we will together take over the taps at Lådan under the event: Twice as Nice Tap Takover”!

This week it's time for All in Beer Fest i Gothenburg. We're looking forward to meet some great colleagues and beer enthusiasts there. Get your tickets here.

Week 42 - Dark Mild, Södermalm Sour & What's Brewing

So we did a new beer, a Dark Mild, 4%. It's a British session beer style and like it's name suggest it has a low level of hops character. Abv is usually between 2-4% and the carbonation is also low. Our Dark Mild is slightly higher in carbonation and also a tiny bit dry-hopped which contributes to the fruitiness of the beer more than the bitterness. It's fruity, with hints of nuts, dark coffee and burned sugar.

Our table beer version of a Berliner Weisse style ale, Södermalm Sour 1,9% is back again after a shorter break. Crisp, light, sour and low in alcohol.

Tomorrow Tomas and Albin will fly over to Bergen to brew together with Helge and Torvald from 7 Fjäll Bryggeri. On Thursday they will drive down together to Stavanger and What's Brewing to meet some fellow comrades. Click here to read more about the festival.

Week 40 - MC Emmer

What a joyful night at Katarina Ölkafé last Friday! Shiny happy people and lots of beer, thank you Katarina staff and thank you to all who came.

Also thanks to everybody at Restaurang Sensum for the lovely Smørrebrødsfesten. Due to sickness we couldn't be there pouring our beers our selves but I've heard they managed great without us. Just sorry to miss it!

This week we're packaging new beer Emmertime, collaboration brew with Other Half, a 6% NEIPA brewed with emmer and hopped with citra, mosaic and hull melon. Our amazing friends at KUF design have made these fantastic paper dolls of not just the MC Emmer guy but also of our Head brewer Michel and Other Half Sam! We're therefore having a competition where you can design your own MC Emmer doll (analog or digital). Go to our homepage www.stockholmbrewing.com/emmertime for more information about the competition. Deadline is Friday 13/10 and the prize will be a special designed T-shirt!

The launch party will be at Brewdog Södermalm on Friday (6/10) door open at 14.00. The beer will also be available the same day from 17.00 at beer places around Stockholm, Örebro and Uppsala. 

Week 39 - Winebeer and stuff

Yesterday we got grape delivery from Rosendals Trädgård. The grapes (mostly Nordica variety) were put into a tank and mixed with a 2 year barrel-aged saison. No we will let the beer ferment for another two months with our house culture and the indigenous yeast from the grapes. This is a new interpretation of our former beers Cuvée Alexandria and Cuvée Rosendal. We have the same ingredients but instead of starting out with grape fermentation we have now added the grapes in the end.

On Friday we're having the Sample Sale at Katarina Ölkafé. It's basically a version of our own Friday after work brewpub but a bit smaller, more cozy and with no less than eight of our Cellar Series beers! Check the FB event for more info.

Today we're brewing our annually dark beer. Stockholm Noir 2017 is going to be a thick dark and strong stout with a matching bitterness. A heavy dose of oat and wheat gives it a creamy texture. Stockholm Noir will be out and about in November.

Week 35 - Other Half collab, Flippin' bottle takeover and welcome back Michel!

A lot of fun things happening this week but first of all, big thanks to Marcus Hjalmarsson, the whole Brewskival team and all the visitors for making such a great festival last weekend. Amazing breweries from all over!!

This Monday we said welcome back to our head brewer Michel who's been on parental leave for almost a year now. Great to have you back! Also hats off to Albin, who's been managing the brew kit all by himself this month.

On Thursday Sam from Other Half will come down and brew with us. The Swedes In Heat, which we brewed at their place last spring, was a hit and so we're very exited to see what the brewers will come up with this time. Find out more on Instagram.

Another thing happening o Thursday is that you'll find just about all our beers at Flippin Burgers. They are kicking out their standard beer assortment for one week and replacing it with our beer. Flippin Burgers and we started out pretty much at the same time and we've been hanging out and working together ever sense, a relationship we value highly. The new burger of the month will be co-designed by us together with the head chef and you'll find us behind their bar on Friday from 11 until late. Hope to see many of you there!
