Finally got our current favorite out to market after a few paperwork snafus!
 
Very excited to premier our newest beer at Systembolaget today! Double India Pale Lager (7,5% ABV) makes its way, finally, to their shelves and we hope it will challenge your perceptions of what a lager can be. It is super hoppy, brewed and dry-hopped with Citra, Centennial and Simcoe varieties it is citrusy, with a large, yet well-rounded bitterness and medium body. Fermented with a classic pilsner yeast for a smooth finish (despite 100 theoretical IBUs!).

Only available at local stores in Västervik, Vimmerby, and Gamleby. Also sold at The Brig, Restaurang Sjökanten på Hasselö and Hotell Fängelset. Let us know what you think!

Yes, we need BMC to be the antagonist, or else we would all jump on Sam Adams, right?
Every story needs an antagonist. Harry's horcruxing wouldn't have been nearly as exciting without Voldemort's noseless threat, and Frodo's plucky resilience wouldn't have been as impressive without...

:sigh: This is very narrow minded. As if every craft drinker is interested only in good vs. bad.

Wishing all the participants of LED, Loftahammar Endurance Day the best of luck today!

There is a nice, cold LED Race Pale Ale waiting for each and every participant at the end of your challenging 34km run, 9km swim trial of Endurance.

This year's winner will determine next year's percent ABV ;)
