Are you ready for this?

We have great news!

Mellerud’s brewmaster Richard Bengtsson visited Åre shortly after New Year’s. Specifically, he visited Daniel and Anders at their brewery, Åre Bryggcompagni. They put their creative heads together and created a collab beer for Åre Gastronomy Week!

This beer is developed with focus on the food it will be pairing during Åre Gastronomy Week. It’s characterised with a fine maltiness, balanced with a wonderful bitterness and aroma from the dry hopping. The beer is fermented with a Norwegian farmhouse yeast brewed to add fruity esters such as orange and citrus. The raw materials are 100% ORGANIC malt & 100% ORGANIC hops.

In addition to creating a fantastic beer, the collaboration has led to Melleruds helping Åre Bryggcompagni to become an Organic Craft Brewery, which is relatively uncommon among Sweden’s microbreweries.

The beer will be available at all participating restaurants in Åre during the week, so be sure to try it out!

You can also taste it in our Pop-Up Restaurant at Åre Square, either in connection with the Chef of the Year Pop-Up Dinners or during the days when lunches will be served in the restaurant.

See you during Åre Gastronomy week!
