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. In the past it was a special release that only came to select webshops. This year, it's in almost every webshop and luckily for Sweden, in Systembolaget. In addition to the Putty release, Syste…
 
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…
 
We are barrel aging this episode but in very different ways. Brewdog's sour beer brand, Overworks, has released Jackalope King. This Scottish sour ale has blueberries and gorse flowers aged in red wine barrels. What's a gorse flower? Listen and find out. Pühaste released a series of beers under the Silver Series 2020 logo. This collab with AF Brew …
 
We're bringing out the heavy hitters again, a barleywine and an imperial stout. This is How is a brewery from the small town of Piteå in northern Sweden. They have released an English barleywine aged on Buffalo Trace and Heaven Hill bourbon barrels. It's a sweet boozy beer that will keep warm on cold winter nights. Alpha Delta and North Brewing col…
 
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…
 
Nerdbrewing has been putting quite a few beers recently. Known for their rich flavorful imperial stouts, they don't disppoint with two of their latest releases. First we have one of the two new Override stouts, Override Imperial Chocolate Milkshake Stout - Strawberry Edition is a blend of strawberry puree with cocoa nibs and vanilla. Next is Typeca…
 
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. Martin and Stefan look back on the year that and look forward to starting 2021 with new beers and fun times. We hope you enjoyed the show this year and enjoy …
 
It's finally here. Day 24 of our 2020 Advent calendar. We end it with a great beer The Ale Apothecary The Beer Formally Know As La Tache. It's an American Wild Ale made with Cascade hops and aged in oak barrels. It's a great way to end the calendar and start the Christmas festivities. We hope you've enjoyed our calendar this year as much as we enjo…
 
It's almost over. The calendar is coming to and end but not before another exciting beer from Deya called Your Bad Luck Has Saved You. This is a collaboration with Crosby Hops and Loughran Brewing Stores. It's a west coast IPA made with Chinook, Idaho 7 and El Dorado hops. We learned a lot about ourselves this episode. Mainly we don't care for Idah…
 
Another new brewery from the UK? Yes please. Rivington Brewing is out of Lancashire, England and they are new to us. 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…
 
In the middle of the month and we are feeling the dark winter nights. Fortunately we have the Advent 2020 calendar and it's Day 17. That means we have a new beer to brighten our spirits with Brouwerij de Molen Doom & Gloom. This is a nice imperial stout with a slight barrel aging on it. Coming in at 10.6% ABV, it's just what we need to warm our col…
 
We haven't heard of Bruery Terreux's The Orchard Project. There are three beers from this line and we get to try Nectarines. Bruery Terreux has been known to make incredibly sour beers. This one is just on the boarder. This sour wit ale is brewed with spices and aged in oak barrels with raspberries and nectarines. It's a pucker fest but in a good w…
 
We are taking a leap on Advent Day 15 with Wild Leap's Alpha Abstraction Vol 13. We've tried previous versions of this beer on the show and have quite enjoyed it. Also, we are suckers for a series and we'll keep trying them as long as they are good. Version 13 is an 8% ABV with Sabro hops. Sabro isn't one of our favorite hops and this one lacks the…
 
Advent 2020 Day 14 brings us The Bruery American Anthem. It's an imperial brown ale aged on bourbon barrels with peach, apricot, cinnamon and vanilla beans. It's a boozy peach pie in a glass. This 14.2% ABV beer will keep you warm on this long cold winter nights. It will make you long for warmer days and better times. But when you're sharing beers …
 
We've always enjoyed To Ol. One of the bright notes of this year has been the amazing beers coming out of To Ol City. They have really stepped up their game. Day 13 give us one of their latest offerings Artistic Bouncing, a double IPA with Galaxy and Ella hops. This is a great beer and celebrates what they've been doing recently. At 8% ABV it doesn…
 
Advent 2020 Day 12 is only our second hard seltzer on the show. Hard seltzers get mixed reviews. The Evil Water line from Evil Twin NYC has generally been well received. Tamarind Lime is what you would call a challenging flavor combination. It's something you'll either enjoy or you'll hate. There is no middle ground here. Meant to be light and effe…
 
Advent 2020 Day 11 is a visit from the monk, the Northern Monk. This Northern UK brewery rarely disappoints and this one doesn't. OFS is part of an experimental beer series. Each number is a different beer. OFS012 is an American IPA using Incognito hops. These beers we only available at the brewery before COVID hit and now you can find them online …
 
Advent 2020 Day 10 is another treat from the Kihoskh monthly subscription box. Adroit Theory has been making waves in the EU over the past year. Their Evangelion line of triple IPAs has been a welcome coping mechanism this year. Zeruel is the 14th iteration of this beer and it's awesome. If you haven't tried any beers from Adroit Theory, make sure …
