MABT (Mid Atlantic Beer Tour) 10

Yes we are on beer trip in the USA again and this time it was time to explore the area of Mid Atlantic (including the NY,NJ,PA,DE & MY states).

We have now been travelling from New York (started right on Manhattan on the 50th street with our black JEEP Compass) through Phillie and have now just arrived to Rehoboth Beach to visit Dogfish for a couple of days.

I will try to write something more extended, but will have a short start with the sampled beers and places so far in the next report.

SBWF Live Report 2009

Hi, seems I have been located in a very warm place (under the spotlights) at Stockholm Beer and Whiskey Festival and the OT VIP corner.

Tricky to report any big details, anyway the top things right now include;

1. The Brewdog booth where they served the beer brewed together with Stone. Yes, it was great. Also fun to see one of the brewers visiting the festival. Always fun when SBWF gets the proper attention it deserves.

2. The new initiative from Gotlands Bryggeriet (owned by Spendrups) where they are playing around with IPAs and Pale Ales. Also fun to see that they have understood the importance of dogs together with breweries, i.e. beer labels including names like Wisby Sleepy Bulldog Pale Ale.

3. The Kaggen 2005-2008 collection of taps at Bishop Arms.

4. The Butte Creek organic brewery booth. Really fun to see that a American brewery have come all the way to Sweden to show their beers.

5. The beer provided by OT, as always amazing.

6. A new brewer and new beers from Sigtuna Brewhouse. The new Red Ale with late added hops were simply amazing and a good restart for this brewery. Until now the beers have been traditional and well balanced, but in my taste very boring, but now it seems we can see more imitative that is at least once or twice are outside the borders. Good luck, now we hopefully we can look forward for a couple of great IPA or DIPAs.

  1. Rudgate Jorvik Blonde (c)
  2. Rudgate Battle Axe (c)
  3. Port Brewing WipeOut I.P.A (b)

Did not the chance to sample any of the Ruby Mild (this years best beer award at Great British Beer Festival) but OT had instead 2 other beers from the Rudgate brewery. This was quite a busy day at OT when visited last Thursday. Seems a lot of people have come down to enjoy one of the last summer evenings, you sort of forget that September can be quite nice in Stockholm. Hope it can last at least a couple of more days.
