New Swedish beers 2012

January 22, 2013

I think it is safe to say that we have never seen so many new beers in Sweden during one single year as we did in 2012. I have more than 400 new Swedish beers on the list and I am not even sure it is 100%. With some help from The Pilgrim and The progress the list will be more updated. (Thanks to everyone on Ratebeer that helped getting the list more up to date!). It is an open list so if you want to contribute feel free to do so.

The list is very much inspired by the Danish list that Peter Myrup Olesen makes every year on his site beerticker. Last year he listed as much as 756 new Danish beers and that is all time high for Denmark as well. Excellent work Peter as always with that long list!

The Norwegian beer blogger Knut Albert listed 220 new norwegian beers last year. The beer scene in Noway is impressive.

In total that makes it about 1 400 new Scandinavian beers last year.

I also made a summary of Swedish breweries and got more than 100 on the list. That is a milestone indeed.

Update: I got a comment from Per: “a quick check on Ratebeer reveals that around 203 new Finnish beers were added [in 2012] (excluding ciders and contract brews brewed abroad). There are 18 Icelandic, 15 Greenlandic and 12 Faroese.

Thanks Per!


Tuffing bryggeri

January 21, 2013

There are a lot of new breweries starting up in Scandinavia. One new interesting brewproject to follow is Tuffing bryggeri in Halmstad. The people behind Tuffing bryggeri are Christian Arvidsson and Juha Välitalo. Follow their journey to become a commercial brewery on their Facebook site. Tuffing bryggeri uses a Braumeister from the German manufacturer Spiedel.

Good luck with your brewery!

Many new breweries – the Braumeister revolution
We could call this “boom” of new breweries, the Braumeister revolution, because the Spiedel brewing equipment has become increasingly popular among homebrewers and small breweries. There are a significant amount of homebrewers who plans to start commercial breweries.

Misterhult bryggeri

January 19, 2013

Misterhult bryggeri is yet another brewery project (not yet commercial) in Sweden. This time it is a “joint venture” between Sweden and USA. The founders of Misterhult bryggeri are the married couple Kevin and Linda Zelnio and the brewery is located in the small village of Misterhult (Mörtfors municipality). Kevin describe himself as “ an american who was fortunate enough to marry a swedish woman. Kevin worked for over a decade as a marine biologist, ecologist and science communicator. He keeps his passion for science by brewing unique, flavorful beers in the stunning forests and mossy rock-laden coast of the Misterhult region “

The brewery was initially called Black Ink brewery but changed name to Misterhults bryggeri.

December 20, 2012

MarbäcksKaptenOlleToday I got a preview of the new labels from Marbäcks öl. The beers Kapten Olle (Pale Lager) (named after a legendary sea captain in the area) and Smea Kalle (Dark Lager) (named after a local blacksmith) will be available at Systembolaget in Ulricehamn on 2nd January.

According to Timo at Marbäcks öl they will focus on getting the beers out to the Systembolaget stores and maybe later on to some local restaurants. If you run a restaurant close to Marbäck or Ulricehamn you should contact Marbäcks öl (contact information below).
