COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Carnegie Porter började bryggas 1836 och är ett av det äldsta svenskbryggda ölet – tillika Sveriges äldsta aktiva varumärke som med decennierna blivit känt över hela världen. 175-årsjubileet firas med en Jubileumsbrygd, signerad av Carlsberg Sveriges bryggmästare Daniel Eriksson och Brooklyn Breweries bryggmästare Garrett Oliver.
– Om jag hade varit pizzabagare hade jag beskrivit brygden som ”extra allt”. Till skillnad från vanlig Carnegie Porter, som är underjäst, har vi använt både över- och underjästkultur till jubileumsbrygden. Det har gjort den välhumlad, men faten har samtidigt minskat bitterheten och adderat smakerna av vanilj, kokosnöt och lite bourbon, säger Daniel Eriksson.
I april anlände amerikanska bourbonfat till Carlsberg Sveriges bryggeri i Falkenberg. Daniel Eriksson slet hårt tillsammans med Garrett och hans bryggare från Brooklyn för att få alla 130 träfat på plats och genomföra tappningen av brygden. Till sin hjälp hade de representanter från Porters Drinkers Association och medarbetare från Carlsberg.
Under lagringstiden spelades det musik för trätunnorna från en öppen spellista på Spotify där allmänheten var med och påverkade valet av musik. Det spelades allt från Cole Porter, Brooklyn-låtar och klassisk musik till reklamlåtar från västkustkompisarna Pripps Blå och Falcon.
– Under lagringstiden blev ölet smakrikare och starkare, från planerade 6,9 procent till en slutprodukt på 8,8 procent. Om det var ljudvågorna som påverkade låter jag vara osagt, men portern utvecklades fantastiskt bra, säger Daniel Eriksson.
