Trappist beer: Zundert

A couple of months ago Lithuania received an addition to its (yet meager) Trappist beer selection, Zundert, courtesy of Alaus Gidas. But before we start dissecting it yeast by yeast (hur), let’s talk about Trappist beer in general and what makes it so exceptional and revered, even. Trappist monks (and nuns!) branched out of Cistercian […]

Hawaiian beer: Kona Brewing Company

Never before has there been such a wide array of foreign brews in Lithuania. With new brands entering the market every few months it’s becoming more and more pleasant for a beer drinker to live here, in this small and beautiful country. One could easily drink different beer every night and not get bored for… […]

Lithuanian beer: Winter brews from Dundulis

This year Dundulis stayed true to their tradition and, just before Winter solstice, introduced their traditional seasonal brews: Juodaragio (gruit with yarrow) and Devyniaragio (braggot with pine buds and propolis). These two didn’t make it to our wintery beer overview (and what a shame it is!), so we’re in a hurry to write at least […]

Lithuanian beer: The Winter Edition

Yup, the winter is here and it won’t be leaving for another two to three months. Several months of gloom and cold. But alcohol makes a lot of things better, so we decided to compile a list (mind you, it’s not comprehensive, there are some brews we haven’t tasted yet, so no complaining!) of wintery […]

Belgian beer: Westvleteren 12

Ah, yes, the mythical and highly sought-after beer that is often touted to be the best beer in the world — Westvleteren 12. Brewed by monks in Saint Sixtus Abbey in Vleteren, Belgium, this quadrupel is truly a holy grail for all beer geeks and freaks. It is produced since the beginning of World War […]

Danish beer: a few words on To Øl

When it rains, it pours — this has been very true for us for the last few months. After summer came to end, we (fools!) believed we’d finally have time. You know, to hunt for beer, to taste, savor and write some reviews. But the works kept pouring in, forcing us to stall our beer […]

Irish beer: The Foxes Rock

One day about a couple of months ago we were doing our regular grocery shopping and saw these four little foxes just staring at us. They were luring us, saying all kinds of inappropriate stuff, basically just seducing us right there, in the middle of the shop. We finally gave out and brought them home. […]

Lithuanian beer: Sakiškių alus (again)

Lithuanian brewery Sakiškių alus tends to appear on our blog more or less constantly and just because they are quite productive. Recently they pimped their facilities hoping to brew even better beer and ensure constant production quality.  And a couple of weeks back the brewers introduced some new interesting brews that will be the focus of […]

Polish beer: Browar Warmia

Oh, Poland… We love you but we keep missing the chances to taste some of your craft beer. Either the stores are closed or we spend our time somewhere in the woods on the shore of one beautifully green lake. Not too long ago we did just that — spent a couple of days chilling […]

Scottish beer: Innis & Gunn

Man oh man, it’s been more than a month since we posted a short beer review. We can only blame it on the lack of time and an overabundance of work-related activities. Please be patient, we will return with regular posts come September. For now, to quench the thirst, we’ll talk about a couple of […]
