An introduction to Organic beers in Finland

beers in Finland - overall beers in Finland

Let‘s start by defining organic. Wikipedia puts it that way: „Organic farming is an alternative agricultural system which originated early in the 20th century in reaction to rapidly changing farming practices.“ What we, the consumers, understand as Organic, is usually that Organic farming is a more natural way of farming that doesn’t allow certain pesticides, herbicides or other chemicals. When we buy organic we buy, or possibly buy, a product that is “cleaner” than a comparable product produced with so-called conventional methods.

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.
