Trying a ten year old beer is nothing compared to this weeks beers. Let's start with an 18 year old beer. Slottskällans Imperial Stout 2003 is a long forgotten beer from the past. Much sought after at the time, today it's a dusty relic of the past that holds up impressively well. Nils Oscar has been around in Sweden for a long time. This 19 year ol…

We take a few minutes away from the mini-festival to reflect on the past year and our beer drinking adventures. We're looking forward to the next year and hav…
 
It's time to get fruity with some peaches and mangos. Crooked Stave used to be so difficult to get. These days, you can find a Crooked Stave beer in most webshops. Persica is still a difficult find. This bottle is actually from 2015. It's still full of fresh peaches and brett. From there we open a can of Mango and Habanero Heat Wave Turbine. This i…
 
Martin brought out something old and something new. Mort Subite Oude Kriek Lambic 2014 is a classic sweetened kriek lambic. This has aged out quite well.

AF Brew has teamed up with Lervig to release two…

In light of the recent events in the brewing industry involving several well known breweries and brewers harassing and belittling women, we wanted to put a spotlight on what female brewers are doing in Sweden.

We haven't been able to play Game of Beers for quite some time. Due to the pandemic, we thought it best not to. Now the time has come for the ultimate showdown. Stefan vs. Martin!!! It's the showdown you've been waiting for. One is a tasting idiot and one is a ticking expert. Who will be the better taster? Bjorn from Bjornguiden has stepped in as t…

Pentrich Brewing Co has jumped into the EU market with a series of releases. Blizzard in the Pines is made with Mosaic, Simcoe and Idaho Gem hops. Toppling Goliath returns to the EU ma…
 
The webshops are a hopping these days. You never know what will turn up week to week. A few weeks go Trillium dumped a lot of sour beers on the EU market.

Verdant started a couple of years ago and they worked really hard to create a flagship beer. That one beer that everyone is frantic for. That beer is Putty.

Oh Joy! We get try two new breweries this week. Tartaruga Fine Brewing is from Belgium. Usually when we review a Beligan beer it's a lambic or a gueuze. This week we have a Belgian IPA. Sweet Alma hits like a Belgian IPA. If you've never had one before, it hits a little different from any other IPA style. 71 Brewing Co is out of Scotland Blueberry …
 
We tried and loved 45 Days of Pilsner a while back. We were excited to try To Ol's 45 Days of Hell(es). This is one damn tasty beer. If you're not a fan of pilsners, largers, helles, etc., these beers might very well change your mind. Light, sweet, bready, and easy to drink. We follow that up with Beerbliotek's The Trash-Filled Streets Made Me Wish…

Stefan is pretty open to all kinds of beer. There are a few adjuncts he's not crazy about, guava, banana and hazelnut. This episode we have two beers with fun adjuncts. Brew York Viva La Guava-lution promises to be a revolution of guava. More guava than your simple minds and palates can handle. Next is from the Amundsen Virtual Reality series, Stic…
 
Equilibrium and The Veil on one episode? It used to be quite difficult to get beers from either of these companies in Europe. These days they seem to show up almost weekly. Both of these came from online shops. Equilibrium Lupo Lab is their version of Fluctuation with an experimental product called LUPOMAX, a concentrated Citra lupulin product. The…

Our first episode of the new year and we've got something a little different from two very well respected breweries. We love Crooked Stave for their sours. That's pretty much all we've gotten in this part of the world. When we got our hands on an IPA from Crooked Stave, well of of course we had to have it on the show. Next is a beer from Stigberget…
 
It's the last episode of the year on the last day of the year and it couldn't come sooner. We are ending the year on a high note with not the usual two beers, but three boozy fun To Ol beers.

They have recently shown up in some web shops and we jumped on a chance to try them. Evil Dead II is a collaboration with Chain House Brewing. This DIPA is made with Galaxy, Nelson Sauvin and Idaho 7.…
 
When former President Donald Trump used the word "covfefe", no one knew what he meant. We still don't know. It was just another in a long line of random nonsense the carrot in chief spouted. Danish brewers People Like Us thought about it and imagined what would covfefe taste like. Turns out it's a coffee stout. Then they took that stout and aged it…
 
The White Hag Irish Brewing Company has been doing their research. They have recreated a ancient beer style called gruit. It uses Irish heather tops instead of hops and using wild yeasts for fermentation. They then aged it on French and Hungarian wine barrels for extra tartness. The result is Beann Gulban Irish Heather Sour Ale. And it's our advent…
 
Advent 2020 Day 19 brings us lots of holiday joy with De Moersleutel Wanna Taste My Gingerbread Man? As we head into the final days of the calendar having an imperial stout with ginger, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg gives us the warm fuzzy feelings of yuletide cheer. Maybe we should have had pepparkaka and blue cheese to go with it to complete the e…
 
You might remember earlier this year we reviewed the Tubervol 2018 to somewhat positive reviews. After all this is an unholy marriage of lambic with Belgian blonde ale. How does the sweetness of the Belgian blonde mesh with the sour fruitiness of the lambic? Just like the 2018, Tuverbol 2019 enjoyment will vary depending on the drinker. It's trip a…
