All of the 50 barrels are filled before Christmas! Now we only have to wait and wait and wait…
Now we own almost one hundred oak barrels in the brewery!
Here’s some of the 58 recently bought bourbon barrels getting swelled in order to be filled with fresh wort during four intense days this coming week.
Half of the barrels will be filled with a blond and crisp wort and the other half with an amber and more complex wort.
The wort will ferment over 9-12 months before being released as new beers in the Brekeriet Vild series in late 2018.
Isn’t that exciting?!
Kinda hard to imagine this four years ago when we bought the first four barrels
We’ve bought over 50 recently emptied bourbon barrels from our friends at Amager Bryghus.
More barrels means more beer and more beer means more fun!
In the beginning of next year we will release a spanking new series of Brekeriet beers, Vild. A Vild is a beer fermented and aged in oak barrels for at least six months.
Right now we’re planning and trying different blends for the first beers to be released, and it tastes pretty damn promising.
We’re excited and we think you should be too!
Today we’re brewing a sour beer at this fancy place. We brought our house culture to mix with theirs into akvavit barrels. Expect it in a year or so 💪
