COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Vinter is said to be a crossover between a Strong American Amber and an Old Ale. It features generous amounts of Perle, Citra and Cascade, making it more hoppy than the beer traditionally brewed before Christmas in Norway. The beer pairs well with heavier meat dishes, casseroles and traditional Christmas food. It is also excellent enjoyed on its own, ideally in front of the fireplace on a cold winters night.

Editor’s note: Vinter was first brewed on contract in the fall of 2013 at Lervig Aktiebryggeri in Stavanger, but moved to 7 Fjell when the brewery was up and running.
