Svensk Öl

Volvos. ABBA. Pickled herring. Sweden has produced some of the finer things in the world. And now they can add smashing brews to the list. Omnipollo, Brekeriet and Dugges will be appearing on our draught lines and in our fridges over the next week or so, so get excited. My picks…


brekeriet-funkstarterBrekeriet Funkstarter

Secondary fermentation with everyone’s favourite yeast – brettanomyces – gives this farmhouse ale a mighty old dose of funk. We love funk. Sweet apple, spicy pepper and fresh bread are all hanging around the edges of a big, pineappley, tangy blast of brett. Banger.


Dugges Tropic Sunrise

Another fitting name for a fantastic beer. Tropic Sunrise is brewed with lactobacillus for lovely sour yoghurt flavours, and then fermented with pineapple, raspberry and mango. For pineapple, raspberry and mango flavours. Tart and juicy with a bitter, hoppy finish. Treat.


Omnipollo Nebuchadanezzar

DIPAs have been everywhere this year, but Neb remains a classic and a standard-bearer. Massive pineapple and grapefruit on the nose is followed by resin and pine, and a big, full fudgey mouthfeel. And it has a great name that is fun to say. Champion.
