RateBeer has named us Best New Brewer in Norway 2012. We appreciate the recognition, and promise to brew some tasty stuff in 2013 as well! We really don’t know how stiff the cometition actually was, but that doesn’t matter. Winning always rocks!
This weekend will be a nice one for us. We get to brew a test batch of stout, taste lots of beer and chat to fellow brewers. And the weekend starts early at that!
Tonight, Thursday, we’ll be firing up Kim’s homebrew setup to concoct a new test batch of an American-style stout.
Tomorrow, Friday, Gahr will be judging in Lervig’s homebrew competition.
Friday afternoon we’ll be heading for Grimstad to meet up with the guys at Nøgne Ø and the lucky homebrewers who managed to get a ticket for their annual homebrew meeting on Saturday. Gahr will give a little talk at the brewery, and we expect to taste lots of great beer and meet lots of nice people.
What more could a cuckoo brewer ask for?
Supermax Lager is dead – All hail West Coast Lager! Our overly hopped lager has changed its name to better fit the experience of the brew. Brimful of west coast hops – West Coast Lager. Simple and straight to the point. With this name change all our brews have had pilot names.
- Henrik Imperial Amber was Eyeball Amber
- Halvor IBA was Halvfulle Halvor
- West Coast Lager was Supermax
What will the name of our upcoming Dry Oatmeal Stout be? And what will the pilot name be? Stay tuned for more tales here at ABC.
