New beer – Bazyliszek Mordor — February 12, 2015

New beer – Bazyliszek Mordor

Browar Bazyliszek from Warsaw is another pretty interesting craft brewery from Poland. Its latest brew is their second Russian Imperial Stout with pretty cool name: MORDOR.

I quite admire their portfolio so I´m adding batch of their labels to the post as well and I´m not sure. They are very clever and funny but I don´t know if I like them or not. The brewery logo is perfect but the mix of photography and hand graphic… See for yourself.

Morava Vidensky special — January 7, 2015

Morava Vidensky special

Microbrewery in Frydek-Mistek announced its first new beer in 2015. It´s Vidensky special (Vienna lager) and it´s going to be on sale by Jan.16th.

Vienna or amber lager was developed by brewer Anton Dreher in Vienna in 1841. Austrian brewers who emigrated to Mexico in the late 19th century took the style with them. Vienna lager is a reddish-brown or copper-colored beer with medium body and slight malt sweetness. The malt aroma and flavor may have a toasted character.

Kounice Single Hop Single Malt Ales Series — January 5, 2015

Kounice Single Hop Single Malt Ales Series

Wow, that is something extraordinary! Kounice brewery is preparing a new series of single hop, single malt ales. With alcohol volume 6.5 percent they will use very interesting kinds of hops plus single pilsener malt.

The first batch is already made and it´s from Nelson Sauvin hops (New Zealand/fruits-gooseberry)

The others batches will be made from Mandarina (Germany/fruits), Polaris (Germany/fruits-mint), Melon (Germany/fruits-melon) and Sorachi Ace (Japan/fruits).

The whole project looks awesome and I really hope that I´ll be able to get some of them and taste them.

The labels are pretty cool as well! Good job, Kounice!

Two interesting Czech Christmas specials — December 17, 2014

Two interesting Czech Christmas specials

 

Two of the most interesting Czech breweries made a special Christmas batch. Usually you can buy around Christmas time in beer shops all over the CZ some special Vienna lagers, pilseners etc. but these two took a different path. Clock brewery from Brno brewed Zlate prasatko (Golden Pig) and its weizenbock and Beskydsky pivovarek from Ostravice made Semi Dark IPA from czech and oregon hops. Both will be a treat.10689499_517091465060440_543534049796028813_n 10489633_817751504933109_2951030986814528753_n

A beauty from Poland – Cziechan Poter — December 15, 2014

A beauty from Poland – Cziechan Poter

Ciechan brewery from Ciechanow is one of the more interesting bigger breweries in Poland. Their beers are not bad and they have quite a good PR department. And this is one of their best ideas. December Porter is thick, full beer that you can buy in ordinary bottles but now if you have an acces to some good polish beer store you may be able to purchase this beauty. Limited edition of it in awesome bottle. I´m not sure how many of them are available but it looks just perfect.
