Hello, I have been extremely busy this summer so I haven't been good at updating my blog.
So far this summer since my last update alot of new developments have happened:
We released the Konrad Stout to Vinmonopolet, this is a 10,4% Russian Impy stout. We have brewed about 3000L so we have a good supply for the rest of the year. It is also available on draft.
Another new beer we made a small batch of an IPA made with Rye Malt. This was well recieved and we have now brewed a larger amount for distribution.
Lervig went to the Copenhagen Beer Festival, we represented Stavanger with some of our beers, the Lucky Jack, White Dog, Konrad stout, and Rye IPA.
I traveled to Rome Italy to celebrate Ma Che Siete Venuta a fá's 10th anniversary party with a huge cruise from rome to Barcelona, on that ship were represented over 50 microbreweries from all over the world. Lervig was there with Lucky Jack and Rye IPA.
This year at Gladmat we released a new brand series ( White Dog , Lucky Jack) the Betty Brown, yep its a 4,7% Brown ale, I wanted to keep it low key but make it good, I get tired quicky when I drink beers with alot of caramel malts so I used less than most would when brewing a brown ale, i used more chocolate malt and brown malt to boost the chocolate flavor as well as nutty flavors from the malt, I decieded to go with Pacific Gem hops to help pull out more of the berry / forest flavors that these hops can provide. I am quite happy with the results and hope that our customers will be just as impressed with it as they were with the Lucky Jack.
I have brewed also a new beer for an upcoming homebrewers festival in Nærbø, it is very simular to the Lucky Jack except the Hops were all Nelson Savin and this beer turned out to be awesome! so look out for that soon.
Lervig has had 2 great months in sales it seems like things are starting to move in a positive direction around here! I really appreciate the support, and my soon to be born daughter Nina will be happy for the continued support in the future!
There are still many new things to develop this year!
Enjoy the Norwegian summer while it lasts!
