October 2017 Friday Session: The Bottle Shop

When I first read the topic in the announcement at Deep Beer I read "the body shop" and was a little surprised. Thought for a moment about a beer beauty line but on then the second run I got it. So, this month Friday session's topic is "The bottle shop". While writing the following lines I always had that tune in mind: "little shop, little shoppa bottles. little shop, little shoppa bottles"...

June 2017 Friday Session: Late, Lamented Loves

Oh yes, this month, June, Friday session is about Late, Lamented Love - hosted by All the brews fit to pint. I first thought: Heck no, lamented love? What's that? So I sat back and thought a little longer. In 2001 I started my studies at the VLB Berlin. On the first day I set with my first 2 colleagues, Daniel and Urs, in front of a small beer shop. My two friends drank a lot of beer, a lot. When I started my studies I never intended to be a quantity drinker, but a quality drinker (which I'm still). The second day passed, and after Prof. Szewzyk's Biology lecture all from the Master Brewer course came together at the Cafe Hardenberg. We drank some beers. Everyone was having a good time.

The Finnish craft beer scene is alive - and its amazing

Impression from the Finnish Craft Beer Festival - one of the tents

On Wednesday Lumia and I went for the SOPP, the Finnish Small Brewery Festival. We arrived at about 20:00 o'clock and luckily we found Pekka and Tomi waiting in the queue. The queue, actually two of them - where very long. According to Google maps about 120 meters. We found ourselves right in the middle and enjoyed a lovely summer day moving towards the entrance with a speed of approximately 1 meter per minute. Shortly before 21:00 o'clock we got on the red carpet, finally, and after buying a glass for 3 € also inside.

The usage of Biogas in Breweries

Some time ago I was in Ireland to introduce friends of mine to Biogas. I also tried to reach out to Culan from the White Gypsy brewery, but he didn't have any time at that time. Since then the research has gone on and some articles were realeased that covered the usege of brewery spent grains (BSG). One of them seemed to be very promising as it came from the Bavarian State Brewery Weihenstephan. There system is called Enbaferm

A day at the Nokian Panimo

Nokian Panimo "Keisari" brewery

25 years of business is in our fast moving world a long time. And due to this anniversary the Nokian Panimo opened its doors for one day only for guided tours and beer tasting. As I moved to Finland recently this was a good opportunity to start checking out the local brewing scene. So, on a nearly sunny day in September we went to Nokia. Yes, this is a city also, not just a mobile phone brand.
