Our IPAs, Knot Work and Westervik IPA, are finally in Stockholm at The Bishops Arms Linnégatan! They are doing a "Craft beer of Sweden: from the north to the south" map at their pub! Check it out if you are in the city.

Limey summery goodness coming your way!
Dry-hopped and dry-limed our summer ale! It will be called Motueka Lime and is a very light 4.4% blonde wheat beer single-hopped with Motueka from New Zealand. Wheat is very messy grain and by looks of it after transferring to secondary tank for aging there will be some nice foam to it!

Should be available mid May for pubs and restaurants and June 1st for Systembolaget.

Only during April in Västervik!
Come try our Easter Ale (Påsköl), only available at the Hotell Fängelset pub! It is a 5% dark ale brewed with Mt Hood, Willamette and Aurora hops and roasted wheat. It's a tad bit roasty, a little sweet, medium bodied, and the hops varieties add a bit of earthiness to it. The combination seems to add a hint of smoke to it. Enjoy!
