Today marks a milestone in the history of Brekeriet!
Before the opening of Brewskival 2016, the three of us brothers sat down for a lunch meeting to discuss the future for our oak fermented wild ales. We knew we wanted to produce these beers separated from our ordinary production but under the same roof. And we knew we wanted to increase the fermentation capacity in oak tremendously.
This little project took some serious planning, sketching, digging, plumbing, piping, wiring, building, tiling, sweating, buying, and of course brewing and aging.
To differentiate these beers from our regular ones, we’re soon releasing a new series of beers called ‘Vild’.
When you buy a Vild you’re buying a beer that has been fermented and aged for at least six months in oak barrels. It all comes in olive green 37,5cL champagne bottles with a natural cork and a cap on top. The artwork and the labels are also differing a lot from our usual ones.
So now, exactly one and a half year after that lunch meeting, we’re packaging the first ‘Vild’, and the only suitable beer for this grand premiere is of course Cassis.
Cassis will be released in a limited amount at the Swedish Systembolaget later this spring.
We really hope you like it! ❤️
