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

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 [...]

The other day I got a parcel from a nice chap containing a few bottles of Kellerbier from Bavarian-based brewery St.Erhard. Nice I thought, as I’m a bit of a sucker for Kellerbier and don’t get anywhere near enough of it here in Sweden. Having peeled away the bubble-wrap I sat there staring at a [...]

One of my absolute favo Xmas beers (this particular bottle from 2006). Unfortunately a quick check of the Systembolaget’s interweb suggests it is out of stock at the importer (Galatea) and I’m not sure if and when it’s coming back. If you know then let us know!! Photo: BeerSweden Darren

Traditional porters are often spiced with English Fuggles, but because organic Fuggles were impossible to find the brewing duo substituted it with Sovereign, which is said [...]

It doesn’t really get any more Christmas than this, does it? I feel like gorging on gingerbread and meatballs (not at the same time mind you) while listening to Mariah Carey belting out ‘All I want for Christmas is You’ just looking at this picture. OK, so the man with the pig’s head on the [...]

An icy wind is blowing through Umeå today, making this warming Scottish Ale from Sigtuna the perfect choice to keep the cold at bay. If you’re a whisky fan (and think peat is neat) then this beer is for you – its thick syrup and chocolate notes make it a great partner to aged cheese [...]

We feature a classic Xmas beer for day 2 of our Advent calendar – ‘Our Special Ale’, the spicy seasonal offering from Anchor Brewing Company. It doesn’t look like we’ll be getting any of the 2013 release to Sweden this year but Anchor fans have still got a chance of trying last year’s vintage, with [...]
