    Helsinge Pilsner - Hyllie Hapi Pils - ep598

    Helsinge Pilsner - Hyllie Hapi Pils - ep598

    Ahhh...summer time is finally here and that means we put away our pastry stouts and barleywines for something light, crisp and easy to drink on a warm day. There have been several posts Instagram and Facebook about how Sweden's best pilsner is Helsinge Pilsener. We wanted to test that against one of our favorite Hapi Pils from Hyllie Bryggeri. Helsinge Pilsener is a solid pilsner and defintely fits the bill. We both enjoyed it. Sweden's best? That's another story. Next up is Hapi Pils. This is a New Zealand pilsner. Where Helsinge Pilsener is tasty, Hapi Pils pops. The hops are bright and refreshing. It's easy to drink and you keep reaching for more. It is Sweden's best pilsner? Who knows, but it's in the running. #beer #craftbeer #drinks #pilsner #helsinge #hylliebryggeri

    Eighth State Brewing Rouge in Exile - We Can Walk - ep597

    Eighth State Brewing Rouge in Exile - We Can Walk - ep597

    Today's a very special episode. It's not often we get to celebrate Sweden National Day on the same day as an episode. But that's not all, it's also Martin's 400th episode. Of course something this special had to have special beers and special friends to join. We called in our beer nerd friends and we get busy celebrating. We have two from Eighth State Brewing. Rouge in Exile is a collab with Burial Beer Co. It's an imperial stout that was aged in bourbon barrels for two years then had dates, caramel, coconut, vanilla and cocoa nibs added. YUM!  After that we opened a bottle of We Can Walk. This is a much simpler beer. It's just an imperial stout with ton of toasted coconut. We were in coconut heaven. Congrats to Sweden and congrats to Martin on this special day. #beer #craftbeer #drinks #imperialstout #pastrystout

    Vigrum Modern Lager - Kosta Bryggeri Modern English - ep596

    Vigrum Modern Lager - Kosta Bryggeri Modern English - ep596

    We're keeping it Swedish with a couple of fun new beers. Vigrum Bryggeri is a new one for us. We got our hands on a bottle of Modern Lager. This IPL comes in at 6% and blends the lager with a slightly hoppy finish. We're looking forward to trying more from Vigrum Bryggeri. Kosta Bryggeri is also new to us. We decided on the Modern English, a 5.8% English IPA. While it didn't blow us away, it a good beer. We're always excited to try new breweries and find new local beers to try.  #beer #craftbeer #drinks #ipl #indiapalelager #englishIPA #ipa

    Brouwerij de Manskerel Manskerel Quad Barrel Aged - Big Belly Liquid Desserts 30 - ep595

    Brouwerij de Manskerel Manskerel Quad Barrel Aged - Big Belly Liquid Desserts 30 - ep595

    Martin took a little trip to Breda, Netherlands. He was able to collect a few beers while he was there to bring back with him. Breda is a small little down just north of the Belgian boarder and has a suprising number of quality beer bars. The first beer we get to try is from Brouwerij de Manskerel Manskerel Quad Barrel Aged. This barrel aged Belgian quadrupel was aged in rum barrels for 12 months. Sadly, it's really missing the big rum punch we were expecting. Big Belly Brewery Liquid Desserts 30 is a 2 year barrel blend sticky Mexican coffee cake stout with nuts. It's the last in the series for the brewery but not their last beer. It's a shame that this is the last in the series and the only one we got to try.  #beer #craftbeer #drinks #imperialstout #pastrystout #belgianquad #quadrupel

    Hyllie Bryggeri Devilish - PomPom Cider Chokladboll - ep594

    Hyllie Bryggeri Devilish - PomPom Cider Chokladboll - ep594

    Sometimes we like to go exploring in Systembolaget. We found a couple of interesting beers to review. Hyllie has been really working the larger, pils and IPA game really well. Some of their other traditional attempts have been just a little off the mark. Devilish is a Belgian strong golden ale that really nails the style. We were blown away by how good it is. We would put it up against any Belgian brewed version. Next up is something best left on the shelf. PomPom Cider Chokladboll is a pear cider with the flavor of Swedish Chokladboll, chocolate and coconut. Oddly enough, they kind of got it but we're not sure that's a good thing from a cider. It's a wild ride of flavor. #beer #craftbeer #drinks #cider #belgianstrongale

    Poppels Barrel Aged Barley Wine - Rhum Bourbon Rum Stout - ep593

    Poppels Barrel Aged Barley Wine - Rhum Bourbon Rum Stout - ep593

    Poppels is one of the larger independent breweries in Sweden. They have released some special barrel aged beers. Barrel Aged Barley Wine - Cognac, Rhum and Port is a 13.5% ABV barrel aged monster. It really packs a mouthful of flavor. Rhum Bourbon Rum Stout contains rhum, rum and bourbon. What's the difference between rhum and rum? You'll have to listen to find out. These two beers are too big for the two of us. We had to call in Marcus and Pontus to help.  #beer #craftbeer #drinks #poppels #barleywine #imperialstout #barrelaged
