Brewery: Brygghus 19
For the other sample the guests would be enjoying while walking round the museum, I wanted to go for something cheerful and fruity. As this was a rock and roll tasting, this IPA seemed like the perfect choice. This is brewed by Brygghus 19, a microbrewery and distillery from Karlshamn, Blekinge that produces beer, spirits, cocktails and soda. They have a 2000 litre brewhouse and nine 4000 litre fermentation vessels. Their hybrid distiller has a 2000 litre capacity. The beer is named after a single Jesper Binzer released as a solo artist in 2020 (he is the former singer and guitarist in the Danish band D-A-D or Disneyland After Dark).
Straight away I must mention the great can art, it really is very pretty! This had a deep hazy apricot colour with a beautiful thick, creamy head that held well. Peach, melon and pineapple notes all emanated the glass and was quite a delicious aroma. Upon sipping, it was almost like apricot juice. Lychee and peach marmalade tones also came through strong. The bitterness then rose on the palate but didn’t overwhelm it, leaving the mouth smooth and refreshed.
This was amazing and very easy to drink. I haven’t ha many beers from Brygghus 19, but the ones I’ve had so far have been very good. Definitely a microbrewery to keep an eye out for over the next few years!
