Haandbryggeriet - a surprisingly delicious brewery
Written by LV Bev

We're pleased to annouce some brand new beers from one of our favorite small breweries: HAANDBRYGGERIET!

From the Shelton Brothers website:

"The 'Hand' Brewery -- basically four guys brewing in their spare time, on an absurdly small scale -- is among the new crop of brewers beginning to appear in Norway. Craft beer is on fire in Scandinavia, but has been slow to catch on in Norway, where specialty brewers still number in single digits.

Haand is by far the smallest of the new brewers, but this means that they can take chances in the brewhouse - a 200-year-old small wooden building with a curious past. Originally built as horse stables, the brewer’s grandfather then used it as his car workshop, after which it was transformed into a small hosiery factory, and finally into the Haand micro brewery. These former homebrewers are making some very unusual beers here, and are also responsible for resurrecting an ancient Norwegian tradition of brewing a smoked beer spiced with juniper berries.

De Ranke XX Bitter – available, at last!

de_ranke___xx_bi_4a6915a074015De Ranke is truly one of the finest breweries around. They specialize in crafting creative beers with a nod to traditional Belgian abbey styles, but ultimately they brew beers that they (and we!) simply enjoy drinking. Their beers go especially well with food, yet each one has more than enough layers of flavor to be enjoyed alone.

The XX Bitter is, as with traditional English “Bitters,” not so bitter at all. It is hoppy, of course, but in quite a different way from our California IPAs. No Cascade or Centennial hops here! No piney (or as Michael puts it – “stabby”) or citrusy hop notes anywhere nearby. Instead, the XX Bitter is full of the lovely spicy, earthy, and slightly perfumey hop characteristics found in only the best European noble hops. The foundation of the beer is a wonderfully-smooth pale malt, and somewhere in the middle of the beer you will find just a touch of that De Ranke farmhouse terroir.

Every time you try this beer, you will find something new to love. Enjoy.

(Available in 24x330ml bottles & 30L kegs)

garconWe are now carrying kegs of all Vanberg & Dewulf imports - including the one & only Saison Dupont! As young beer fans hungry for new tastes, we here at LV fondly recall our first sips of this top notch saison - our introduction to the style back in the dark days of limited beer options. The Dupont beers gave us our first glimpse of what was going on across the pond in Belgium - and today, many saisons later, we can still say that this is the one to beat.

Of course, all of the breweries and their respective beers are great! Check out their offerings by following the links: Dupont, Dubuinsson, and Slaghmuylder.

(All of the Vanberg & DeWulf kegs are 5.28 gallons and have American sankey fittings. Perfect for all occasions...)

 
New Beers from Spain's First Craft Brewery
Written by LV Bev   

We have two new beers from Spain's first craft brewery, Cervesera del Montseny, o r CCM: +Lupulus Iberian ale and the +Negra Stout.

"Just two years ago, Pablo Vijande and friends founded Spain's first commercial craft brewery in the small town of Seva, north of Barcelona at the foot of the Montseny mountains. For years Pablo has been the odd man out in wine-drinking Spain, where no hops or barley for malting are grown. He sold home-brewing materials, ran an instructional brewer's festival, and even worked as a volunteer in an English ale brewery for a spell -- all the time saving up money to start up CCM.
