Meaning "rye bread" in Danish, we took our inspiration for this beer from the Danes’ staple dark, whole-grain rye bread. Brewed with three types of rye malt, this robust brown ale showcases the earthy, spicy character of the grain, complemented by bready, nutty barley malts and a hint of roast. Loosely based on the Scandinavian Christmas beer or "Julebryg" tradition, this beer is perfect for the colder weather of winter, although it will be available year-round (because who doesn’t love a dark beer now and again, regardless of weather?) And don’t worry about the name, we can’t pronounce it either! But we do have a video of us and a lot of others trying our best at it.

Bottle into tulip glass. Attractive tan tight 1 finger head on top a beautiful dark red, clear body. Very nice to look at. Aromas of red berry, yeasty, slightly dry bready, dry rye. Reminds me of my early home brew days in a good way. Palate is short though, slightly sweet, slight liquorice.... very nice session beer, with a slight warming finish.
