The Kernel på Borefts Beer Festival

The Kernel er et forholdsvist nyt engelsk bryggeri, beliggende i Londons hippe Borough-kvarter. De har eksisteret siden 2009 og er garanter for let drikkeligt humlet øl, med pale ales og IPAer tilsat konstant skiftende humlekombinationer. Til Borefts havde de medbragt noget humlet, noget sort og noget eksperimenterende, og for mit vedkommende var der ingen tvivl om at det humlede var bedst.

Deres Table Beer var måske mest imponerende. En session ber på kun 3% alkohol, som eksploderede i duft og smag af tropiske frugter og citrus, og præsterede det sværeste for øl i denne kategori, nemlig at holde balance mellem bitterhed og en spinkel maltkrop. Den fandtes også i en fadlagret version, der var gæret videre med mælkesyrebakterier. Den fik meget karatkter af citronsaft, og kunne slet ikke bære det. Læs mere The Kernel på Borefts Beer Festival

Borefts Beer Festival 2013

Borefts Beer Festival 2013 collection of De Molen glassesSecond blog post and I’m already turning to English. Since Borefts Beer Festival is an international European event, I would like my foreign friends to be able to read along. The festival took place at Brouwerij De Molen on September 27-28. We’re a group of three from Odense who were there for the fourth time, and this year we were 8 people going. The festival has grown and developed since 2010, but the center of attention is still great beer from some of Europe’s most innovative brewers. Although some beers ran out on Saturday evening it’s a festival with exceptional good logistics. Keep it simple, and things work. You buy a glass and some tokens, and then you walk around, tasting beers. This year it was even very easy to find a table, which is a bit of an improvement. And what did I enjoy drinking?
