Banned on Ratebeer, don’t blame me for it!!!
It’s official, I want to go! It’s just that they will release the tickets 11/11/11 at 11:11 CET and they only have 1000 tickets per day and they will sell out really fast. Me blogging about it certainly wont help secure my ticket, not that many people read this blog anyway. If I can’t get a ticket I will be, well disappointed, sad and blue.
There will be 26 of the best breweries in the world and 250 beers! Of the confirmed breweries below, nine of them belongs to my favorites, the others I don’t know anything about.
I’ve got my fingers crossed that a couple more of my favorite breweries will show up among the 14 breweries not listed yet.
This time Systembolaget released several good beers I really wanted, and since the next two releases April 1’st and Easter looks pretty uninteresting for a IPA and Stout freak as me, apart from a couple of exceptions. I thought I would spend next months beer budget to. I got 13 bottles and paid 909 SEK. I came 15 minutes before the shop opened and it was 20 people in front of me, when they opened the line was twice as long behind me. Most people was there for the beer releases, apparently they also released wine. The guy behind me in the bought ONE bottle of wine and paid 2500 SEK (or there abouts if I heard right), I’m glad I’m not that into wine. I got these…
- 11154 [79,30kr; 75cl] Cuvée de Ranke [RB] (one bottle)
- 11140 [59,90kr; 18cl] De Molen Hel & Verdoemenis Misto BA [Schnille, RB] (three bottles)
- 11141 [59,90kr; 33cl] De Molen Hemel & Aarde [Schnille, RB] (four bottles)
- 11127 [56,90kr; 50cl] Hornbeer Hophorn [Schnille på FB, RB] (one bottle)
- 11143 [99,60kr; 75cl] De Molen Mooi & Meedogenloos [RB] (two bottles)
- 11150 [119,90kr; 65cl] Goose Island Pere Jacques [RB] (one bottle)
- 11142 [32,90kr; 33cl] De Molen Vuur & Vlam [Schnille, RB] (one bottle)
13 bottles 909.00 SEK
I was also looking at these below, but I thought I might get them later. Amager usually makes very good beer, but the bag was already very heavy.
- 11138 [55,80kr; 50cl] Amager Citra Weiss [RB]
- 11153 [99,90kr; 50cl] Amager/Mikkeler Hr Frederiksens Væsel Brunch [RB]
I was in Copenhagen the past weekend with an old friend to relax and drink Danish beer. It was rainy and cold in this Gothic city ;-), this weekend. Being November it was ok.
We found some very good places where you can buy many, many beers. I bought 36 different beers from Ølbutikken, Høkeren and Barley Wine, the suit case was very heavy.
We stayed at the same hotel we stayed in 29 years ago on our school trip when we was 15, it looked exactly as I remembered although they had moved the lobby. Close to the hotel there was the famous Mikkeller Bar, we went there all days. I was impressed how quickly they changed the beers on tap. We came on Thursday and on Sunday all of the taps had been changed at least once, we tried most of them. There was a wifi spot so I tweeted some of the beers I had.
We also found the Brewpub København, tried all their beers to. I liked all their beers, I recommend a visit. Another pub we went to was Lord Nelson (close to Barley Wine), they also had a good selection of beers.
While we was at the Brewpub on Friday we found a flyer for the Julebryg Festival 2010, around 30 breweries let you taste their Christmas beers for free. We tasted around 40 different ones, we both agreed that Amager was the best. Maybe it wasn’t the perfect Christmas beer, but we are suckers to good Stout and found it perfect. We both thought that most of the breweries was pretty boring, there was maybe five good ones that stuck out. I tried to google which brewery won the competition, but couldn’t find it. Hopefully it will be published on Danske Ølentusiaster‘s web site soon.
