It’s been half a year in the making, maturing this hefty 14% abv Imperial Stout on 20 year old Whiskey oak barrels. It all began with the biggest and hardest brew week in the history of Danko Beer, resulting in a high gravity beer starting out at OG 1.130. The list of ingredients are 100% natural, we don’t do pastry beers and avoid essences or chemicals. However, we put everything in this beer. Ten malts. Coffee beans, honey, muscovado, cassonade, vanilla, kakao you name it.
The Special Reserva is a highly limited edition with 100% unblended barrel aged beer whereas regular Paragon is back-blended with barrel aged and non-barrel aged versions of the same beer. These beers are ridiculously over the top, you should try them both before they’re gone.
Stefans Lager is a modern take on an unfiltered keller bier, at a modest 4.3% abv so that you can have more. We’ve dry hopped it every so slightly with Mosaic and Citra. Stefan is the bar manager at the pub. His name is Stefan Lager. Yes. Really.
Please drop by to hang out with us and drink some beer together.
Since we have been asked to bring homebrewed beer to the Vleteren Craft Beer Festival on June 10th in Oostvleteren, Belgium, we documented the entire process and published photos with comments on our Facebook Page. In the end we decided on two batches of Tripel and two batches of Saison for the festival.
There are seven parts of the process available for your pleasure.
Homebrewing Prototypes for Vleteren Craft Beer Festival
Even though we’ve been professional and commercial brewers for several years by now, we do still brew a lot of beer at home. As a hommage to the Belgian Homebrewing scene we will bring two homebrewed recipes and pour them from tap.
We will launch our very first Local Beta beer on Tuesday the 20th of September at Monk’s American Bar, Sveavägen 39, Stockholm. Taps will be pouring from 18:00 and onwards.
Naturally Danko Beer will also be there, this time on your side of the bar, to hang out and have a good time. Don’t hesitate to chat us up about any questions you may have. Or even if it’s just to talk about other, more fun, stuff in life.
