Borefts Beer Festival 2015 was the seventh edition of the De Molen festival – and my sixth time visiting with a group of beer lovers from Odense. This year saw the festival growing even further, with a new warehouse being included, and the first floor of the warehouse offering a quiet place to sit and talk/write about the great beer. A nice touch that we took advantage of.

The first time we attended, on the festival’s year 2, we had tasted every beer available by Saturday afternoon, after two half-days of beer tasting. Recently, we have picked the more interesting sounding beers, and not really cared how many we managed. Today, it would have been near impossible to do all of them anyway.

Optakt til C4PAF: Naparbier

Naparbier fra Pamplona i SpanienNaparbier byder på fint spansk besøg til Christian Firtal Pale Ale Festival når der kommer hele to samarbejdsbryg med norske bryggerier. Ligesom i Italien er der også i Spanien stor interesse for godt øl, især i Katalonien og i de nordlige regioner hvor Naparbier ligger i en forstad til Pamplona.

Det er et internationalt orienteret (hipster-) bryggeri hvor øllene har engelsksprogede navne og der bruges ganske fornuftige mængder humle. Der er brygget med flere norske bryggerier, og naturligvis også Evil Twin og Mikkeller. Min favorit blandt de relativt få øl jeg har smagt fra bryggeriet er den voldsomme 11% IIPA “Hop Doom” der delte vandene på sidste års Pale Ale Festival. Læs mere Optakt til C4PAF: Naparbier
