April Beer of the Month 2022

APRIL'S BEERS!

This month we’re happy to bring you selections from a unique brewery in Denmark. Bøgedal uses historic Danish grains sourced from the Svalbard Global Seed Vault in Norway to create incredibly authentic brews. They utilize a system of pulleys and hoists to create a gravity powered-brewery -  no pumps allowed - and they don’t use temperature control so no two brews are the same, even if the same recipe is used. This is about as old school as “old school” can get! I’m excited to share these delicious bottles with you and hope you come back for more.


Cheers!

Bøgedal Oak Aged

Denmark

Incredibly smooth ale. The texture is similar to a lighter porter with great body overall. This brew is aged in Oloroso Sherry barrels to give it deep color and lovely aromatics of caramel, prune, and and tobacco. 


The Muscovado sugar they use in the brewing process gives this beer a lovely crème brûlée toasted sugar quality on the palette. They add oak chips for an additional punch of smooth texture and lightly earthy, sweet, and leathered flavors.

-Crème Anglaise

Bøgedal Stout’ish

Denmark

Delicious and rich stout. A smooth sipper to enjoy on a cold night when you’re looking to get cozy. 


This brew also uses Muscovado sugar and oak chips through ther brewing process. The Stout’ish departs from the Oak Aged and offers lovely notes of chocolate and a hint of coffee. The oak really helps to round it out and marry all of the flavors together.

Bøgedal Sour’ish #2

Denmark

A refreshing, lightly fruited sour. They didn’t call it “Sour’ish” for nothing! These beers use blackberry juice to add that little zip of acid to round out this quaffable ale. Perfect bottle to enjoy this spring on a nice picnic. 


Light sourness on the nose, a hint of of the blackberry comes through. This bright beer is lightly carbonated and has notes of dried lemon, a hint of lime zest, and a whisper of white peach. Crack this bottle open with some seafood to add some brightness to your meal.

Bøgedal Sour’ish #3

Denmark

As mentioned in the notes, Bøgedal’s beers are never the same between their batches. The removal of temperature control in the brewery allows for each batch to develop a personality of its own. This sour also uses blackberry juice in the brewing process and has it’s own personality compared to Sour’ish #2. 


Sour’ish #3 is even lighter on the acid. Very soft body with hints of tangerine and Valencia orange. Very delicate mouthfeel.
