The Stockholm Beer Festival '96

The 5th of October was the day some members of OMH honoured the Stockholm Beer Festival with a visit. For different reasons only a handful of us could make it, and since we had no tickets it took us nearly two hours to get in. The arrangers had succeeded to collect around 400 different beers from all over the world. Unfortunately most of the rare Belgians were sold out, since this was the last night of the festival. I was delighted to see all the new Swedish brews.

The ratings were high all night, and there was quite a few highlights, like Weltenburger Kloster Asam-Bock, a superb bock, and the Flemish Red Ale of Rodenbach. A homebrewed stout was really tasty, and on top of that we got it for free... Also, we rated our first African beers, two Namibian lagers - not at all bad.
