I heard some Danish beer guys talking about Scandinavian Bar and how there is not Finnish Breweries because organizers think that Finland is not part of Scandinavia!
First of all that sounds very stupid and secondly I really hope that we will someday see Finnish brewery in CBC.


Well, I don’t mean to be a dick, but Finland usually isn’t included in Scandinavia. Sure, it’s a Nordic country, but Scandinavia is just Sweden, Norway and Denmark.

Also, the domestic beer scene in Finland seems to be way behind Sweden, Norway and Denmark.

Yeah , Definitly we (me and wife) both enjoyed it more, but struggling to work out why.

Definitly there were less Impossibel queues, Other than Dark lord in session 4,
and oddly Omnipollo seemed to be the one with a queue every session

Liked the hall, but did think it was too crowded. Esp as there was a section sheeted off that some more could have been given over so moving through crowd was easier

But the vibe just felt better and really enjoyed it.

In hindsight turning up at 8am for a 10am opening was maybe a little overkill. But its always fun to hang with people. So really just added to the fun of teh day


oh, and whoever VsXsV is with in that photo, is looking good

That is definitely true. Give us 3-4 years more.

Yup. Scandia = Nor/Swe/Den
Nordic = Scandia + Fin/Ice/Fae

Some people (me included) would push for Nordic to include Estonia too.

Better venue, less crowded even if there were more people attending. No beers were running out very fast, maybe since there were so many amazing breweries gathered.
I hope they keep it like this for many years to come. :)


AleSmith ran out of Hawaiian Speedway VERY fast, if they even had it? I didn’t see AleSmith run out of anything last year, and only that one this year. And quite a few beers ran out closer to the end of each session.

Rare barrel and SARA very often had a long queue. Loved the acidity in most rare barrel beers, and to me rare barrel was in a league of their own compared to SARA and de Garde.

The main thing they should fix, is having the name of the breweries up in the air. At some stands you basically had to wait in line just to see what was in the front because of the crowd. The same thing at the check in, a simple sign above the entrance for pink and session. So little to make it all so much easier.
