Please read, sign and share this petition to the Missouri attorney general concerning a friend of mine's family member who died while in police custody. He was held on child support charges and is diabetic. The police didn't believe Michael Robinson that he needed insulin and he suffered a slow, painful death from diabetic shock in a cell. #blm #blacklivesmatter #michaelrobinson #justice #Missouri
Now take the next step to victory. You're one of 89 people to sign this petition. Now help find 11 more people to reach the goal. Share on Facebook. We were unable to post to Facebook. If you still want to share this petition, please try again. Chris Koster, Missouri Attorney General: Justice ...

Slowly, very slowly, getting into new markets :)
 
We just delivered to a NEW, local Systembolaget. We (finally!) welcome Oskarshamn into the Fängelset fold! Starting September 1 we will be selling Westervik IPA there. Yes, I know we have 5 other beer styles available, plus seasonals, etc etc. So if you want more of our beer in Oskarshamn PLEASE ask staff there for it!!

This is a big win for us since we've been trying to get into Oskarshamn Systembolaget for over 2 years. It is our fourth butik and the first we have gained due solely to your demand! So thank you so much. We hope you enjoy our beer and that someday soon we can deliver our full sortiment to you!

It was our second beer fest and the response was excellent! I fucking love beer!
 
Thanks so much for visiting us in Kalmar this weekend at the Stora Öl - Småbryggerier (Big Beer - Small Breweries) beer festival! Simon and I had a fantastic time and served nearly 1000 samples of Västervik beer!!

And a special thanks to Johan Håkansson and the crew from Ängö Kvartersbryggeri for hosting a very, smooth well-run operation and also the wonderful craft beer loving helpers and the staff at Brofästet Kalmar who made sure everyone was taken well care of.

Lastly, thanks to Berith from Närke Kulturbryggeri and the rest of the board of Sveriges Oberoende Småbryggerierföreningen for helping to organize this important showcase of Swedish craft beer and the great work they and it's member breweries (including us!) are doing to improve beer in this great country.

Till next time!
