Interview with Nøgne Ø from Norway - Blog - Homebrewery day at Nøgne Ø

This month interview is with the Nøgne Ø, a micro-brewery from Norway. Nøgne Ø is Old Danish for "Naked Isle". The beernut tasted some of their beers a while ago and found them very good. I haven had none yet, but I will do my best to get some, even if it means I have to travel to Norway, which might be a pleasant journey. But before that we meet Kjetil Jikiun, founder and brew master of the Nøgne Ø brewery, and ask him some questions about his brewery.

Interview with the Tring brewery - Blog - Tring brewery

The Tring brewery recently added their data to the Lautering network. Time to ask Ben Marston some quesitons.

Nick: You have started in 1992. How many people are now involved in the company?

Ben: It's a relatively small setup (30bb plant), led by two directors, Andrew Jackson and Richard Shardlow. Overseeing office duties is Lynne and out in the brewhouse we have Barry. Terry our main driver is joined by whomever is on rotation as second driver. I head up all marketing communications activity (I was also second brewer on our old site). We then have a host of other folks that handle duties such as managing the shop, handling bright beer orders, cask washing, racking beer...all the things that happen in a brewery. It's fair to say that most people here get involved in a number of duties and they are all excellent at what they do.

Nick: Sounds great, like your beer names. What was the original idea and who does the artwork?

At the Kürzer Brewery - Blog -

The first written mention of the town of Düsseldorf dates back to 1135. Düsseldorf is well known for its Altbier. The name "Altbier" first appeared in the 19th century to differentiate the beers of Düsseldorf from the new pale lager that emerged all over Germany. Brewers in Düsseldorf used the pale malts that were used for the modern pale lagers, but retained the old ("alt") method of using warm fermenting yeasts.
