Stockholm Beer Festival '01

The visit to Stockhom Beer Festivalis traditionally the night of the year we sample the most new beers. Not so this year, as the number of new beers wa more limited than usual, mostly due ot that many small regional Swedish brewers did not attend the festival.

Another tradition at this festival is that Tärnö bryggeri releases their new high gravity Christmas beer which is always excellent. Well, that traditiona carried on this year too, as their Nils Oscar Julöl 2001 Scotch Ale isnowhere short of fantastic and was by far our winner of the festival.

Second place was not very surprisingly taken by Jämtlands bryggeri and their new Fallen Angel Bitter. More surprising is that third place was clinched by a beer from Carlsberg Sweden, but the unfiltered and unpasteurised draught version of Carnegie Porter called Rare Edition was well worth the honours.

Other good news on the festival was the massive amount of new beers from Slottskällan, and thre was also quite a few good imports, mostly Belgians.
