Homebrew Competition

The competition has ended! The three winners has been announced at Beernews, to be read here. We will contact every participant in the beginning of July.

Homebrew Competition

What if you could brew your own wild fermented beer at Brekeriet and then find your bottles on the shelves at Systembolaget?

Welcome to participate with your beers in our homebrew competition. You can compete in three different categories, with up to two different beers per category. This makes a maximum of six different beers per person.

Category 1: Kettle Sour

Wort soured with lactic acid bacteria of your choice followed by pasteurization or boiling of the wort, then fermented with saccharomyces and brettanomyces or only brettanomyces yeast. Fruit, berries, spices or herbs can be added.

No animal ingredients such as lactose, honey or gelatin allowed.

Category 2: Beer with brett

Beer fermented or partly fermented with brettanomyces yeast. No bacteria strains allowed in this category. Fruit, berries, spices or herbs can be added.

No animal ingredients such as lactose, honey or gelatin allowed.

Category 3: Mixed fermentation sour beer

Beer fermented for a long time with a mix of different wild yeast and bacteria strains, in oak barrels or with oak chips/cubes. Even if you don’t have any barrels or oak chips available we will ferment the winning beer in this category in barrels. Fruit, berries, spice or herbs can be added.

No animal ingredients such as lactose, honey or gelatin allowed.

How to compete

The competition starts December 1st 2018 and you can send in your beers until May 31st 2019 when the competition ends.

The competition has ended! The three winners has been announced at Beernews, to be read here. We will contact every participant in the beginning of July.

We will blind test the beers in the specific categories during June with a panel including ourselves and some other influent person from the craft beer industry.
One winner per category will be announced June 30th at the latest.

If you’re one of the lucky winners you’re welcome to the brewery when we’re brewing your beer during the fall/winter of 2019. You’ll also be included in the label artwork decisions and the packaging of the beer.
The beers will be released at Systembolaget and you as a winner will also be able to do a ”privatimport” through Systembolaget.
Please take note that beers below 3,5% can’t be sold through Systembolaget. If you’re one of the lucky winners with your session beer (below 3,5%) it will be sold at certain session beer stores instead.

Good luck!
