Mar 22: Howdy!

The third Vild is going into bottles and kegs as we speak!

Howdy is a delicate kettle sour brewed in May last year, then aged in a wine foeder and dry-hopped with Huell Melon.

Howdy is a collaboration with our great friends from Arizona Wilderness Brewing Co and will reach the market within two months.

Cheers!

Mar 1: Cassis Vild

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! ❤️

 

Jan 26: Vild Collab

The last illustration in our Vild series is finally done!

This label will make all of the Vild collab bottles look pretty. First out, the Arizona Wilderness Brewing Co collab we made last May, with a release in a couple of months. Wait for it!

Jan 16: Bridgman Camper

På fredag släpps vår samarbetsbrygd med det eminenta Michiganbryggeriet Transient Artisan Ales på Systembolaget.

Ölet heter Bridgman Camper och är vår tolkning av den utdöda ölstilen Lichtenhainer; lätt rökig, lätt syrlig och alldeles alldeles underbar om du frågar oss.

För några veckor sedan hade vi Niklas från Livets Goda på besök. I artikeln skriver han om just Bridgman Camper, om vår kommande lansering av Pink Passion och även lite om vår stundande Vild-lansering. Väldigt trevlig läsning!

Här hittar du Bridgman Camper på Systembolagets hemsida.

Jan 8: New caps

Today we got a whole bunch of new caps for the coming Vild series. All of the beers in our Vild series are fermented in oak barrels for at least six months and the beers will mainly be packaged in 375ml champagne bottles with a cork and the new 29mm cap.

We hope to release the first two beers within three months and we are preeeetty excited over here! 🙃

Dec 9: Almost 100 of them!

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 

Oct 30: New blending tanks

We’re one step closer to the release of our new range of beers, Vild.

These tanks will be used mainly for blending beers from barrels and foeders. They will also be used for secondary fermentation with fruits and berries and when we dry hop our Vilds.

Expect the first Vild beers to be released in bottles in early 2018
