It’s that time of year again, when people take a few moments to look back over their shoulders at the year that is coming to its end and reflect on the events that unfolded in the past 12 months. For me 2013 has, in many ways, been the most eventful and exhilarating yet painful and […]

Bearded Rabbit Brewery – vinnare av BeerSweden och Pot Belly Brew Shops hembryggartävling

| december 28, 2013

Hembryggartävlingen som BeerSweden och Pot Belly Brew Shop arrangerade blev riktigt lyckad. Det stora hembryggarintresset märktes av, trots att tävlingen utannonserades ganska sent lämnades 37 porter/stouts in. SHBF-certifierade domare satt och dömde ölen inne i Pot Bellys butik i Göteborg och bryggarna kunde själva komma och lyssna på bedömningen. Det blev dock aningen stressigt så […]

Home-made and wrapped Christmas toffees will probably go quite well with this sweet and malty English strong ale from Britain’s oldest brewery. Have a laid back Sunday everyone! Photo: BeerSweden Darren

I know. This is really blurring the lines between the two BS’s (that’s BeerSweden and Beer Studio in case you were wondering). But there’s so much going on at the brewery right now that I only had enough time to grab some bottles of our new White Label Christmas beer and snap this picture with […]

Dear Santa. I know you must be really busy right now but I was wondering if you could help me out. This brewing beer business is really, really difficult you know. I honestly thought it was a case of pouring some hot water through malt, adding loads of hops and a bit of yeast and […]
