A Norwegian Farmhouse Ale
Better than Lutefisk
This beer is like the relative you’ve heard stories about, but didn’t believe existed until she showed up on your doorstep speaking a foreign language. Built on one of Norway’s oldest yeasts, Kveik, this ale has moderate haziness with a light fruity and pine hop character. It finishes relatively dry, but is balanced due to the oats, pilsen and good ol’ 2-row malt. Legend has it the Kveik yeast was passed down from family to family in the form of dried cakes; We were confused and thought dried cakes meant this delicious beer.
