79 US-breweries & 453 different beers at Monks

monksI guess the news about Monks bar in Stockholm to be serving 453 different beers from 79 US-breweries from Sept 1th is some kind of record (must be, at least in a bar).

The complete list is specified below and from the list its surely some interesting breweries that I have been thinking about trying, including Big Sky Brewing and SKA brewing.

The news is at least that they will have bottles from all these breweries from Sept 1th connected to their biggest US beer festival and guest beer list ever (the initial goal was 500 beer). Do not know if this includes both locations in Stockholm, but I guess that would be the case.

So I guess its time to give Monks a new visit in a close future. Hopefully the list above actually means that the beers are available in real life. Simply if you are a bit frank I really hope that this do NOT mean that 453 beers means just a couple of bottles per beer, that has been the case before.

Because if that would be the case again you can really question what the purpose is, except to be able to impress the public with nice numbers. To be serious (and this time it truly looks amazing) if this is a hit it need to mean that you have the chance to get what you want and when asked for during a visit. I understand that beers from the US are limited and will be out of stock during the coming weeks, but seriously if a beer is only available with 2-3 bottles it does not matter if the list is impressive, it is still just a nice facade and nothing visit or recommend.

Enough with complaints- I will give it a chance and recommend others to come, and I hope all the luck to Monks that this is a true success that will make all US-craft beers in Stockholm happy and satisfied.

I at least already have a short list building up that I want to test.’
