New Swedish beers – just before Christmas

December 10, 2013

Just before midsummer I wrote about the list of new Swedish beers . At that time there was around 270-290 new beers on the list. The main question was: Will Swedish breweries release more than 600 new beers before the end of the year?

Now it is just before Christmas and … How many do you think it is up till today?

Check out the list and please tell me if there are beers missing!


New Swedish Beers 2013 – halftime

June 17, 2013

It is soon midsummer and I hope the summer will bring a lot of new Scandinavian beers to the shelfes. Like last year I am keeping (some kind of) track of new Swedish beers released during the year.

I have more than 250 260 270 new beers on the list and it is growing every day. In the document you could also find a list of the, more than 120 active Swedish breweries (that I know of).

Please let me know if there is some beers or breweries missing!

Happy midsummer everone!


Den stora ölresan – a TV program

SVT logoOn April 16 the Swedish Television Channel 1 (SVT1) will broadcast a new TV program called “Den stora ölresan“. It is the first program in a series of three. The program focuses on the brewing industry and not so much on beer itself. There is a longer clip of the program available on Youtube and it looks promising.

Make a note in your calendar:
Den stora ölresan
Part 1. April 16th at 9 pm (21.00)
Part 2 April 23rd at 9 pm (21.00)
Part 3 April 30th at 9 pm (21.00)

Bryggeri Fängelset – Go to jail! Go directly to jail!

March 12, 2013

It all started with the brew project Black Inc Brewery that later became Misterhult bryggeri. The people behind these two brew projects are the married couple Kevin and Linda Zelnio. They have yet another project in progress and this time it is going to be a commercial brewery, Bryggeri Fängelset. The microbrewery is located in the Hotell Fängelset near downtown Västervik.

Gone in seven seconds

March 8, 2013

I do not know if it is a record or not but it gives you an idea about the beermania in Sweden/Scandinavia. When the Swedish monopoly Systembolaget released 1 400 bottles of Westvleteren XII yesterday they sold out in … seven (7) seconds. The second most popular beer , Gregorius, sold out in 25 seconds.

It was a webrelease and you had register in order to buy the beers and you could only buy four bottles per person. Systembolaget ensured people afterwords that it all went according to routine and they have no indication saying that anything improper happened. I guess some people got surprised about the interest in these beers.
