Sori beers To get you excited

Serious beer for not so serious people

Push limits

Brewing within style regulations is a great starting point and the classics always stay there. However, we are here to create new. We are experimenting and pushing the limits with classic brews. We do it in a way that shows respect to the original style. We brew with a Belgo-American mindset and source some inspiration from our Nordic heritage.

If we stayed brewing in Finland, we would feel like artists who are only given black and white. We want to be those guys that re-painted Mona Lisa and added her an ironic mustache.

Pure ingredients

We use pure water from our own well, quality Finnish malts and the finest of hops. Also, all our beers are vegan – which means we don’t use any animal based finings. Many of our beers can be naturally low in gluten and for the beers we state that are gluten free, we always have a lab result to certify that.

Work hard

We have a very humble approach on brewing – work hard, learn and get results. It has taken years to master these skills. The more we learn, the more we want to share our knowledge with everyone. We owe it to the beer loving society that has raised us to be the beer lovers we are now. We want to amaze fellow brewers with what we have done.

Vientiassistentti Islay Sahti

Ruosniemen Panimo (FIN)

This Sahti is matured in oak and not just any oak, but the famous Scotch whiskey distiller Laphroaig© Quarter Cask oak. This gives our Sahti a bit more depth and balances the overly banana aromas that come from the traditional Finnish baking yeast. Our ancient beast is called Vientiassistentti Islay Sahti. Vientiassistentti is the name for our collaborations, which translates to Exports Assistant, since Ruosniemi has been there for us helping to get this exporting brewery get going. Sold out.

AF Brew (RU)

A collaboration brew of AF Brew and Sori Brewing. Pale ale with rye and juniper berries, combination of Finnish style and Russian sense of balance.

Pine & Needles

Het Uiltje (NL)

Bizarre things happen when you lock a few Estonian and Dutchmen inside a brewery with an unlit christmas tree.. That bizarre thing is Pine & Needles, our fantastically idiosyncratic holiday nog brewed collaboratively with the little rascals at Sori. For this American strong ale, the journey is totally the destination! We first whipped together a whirlpool of citra, chinook and equinox hops and then slightly off our rockers, propped in an entire christmas tree. Literally, one beautifully big baltic pine tree, bark needles & all. It was maybe the best days of our lives. Ever.

Sisu

Double IPA – 8,0% ABV 90 IBU

It takes guts and willpower to get through the thick part of starting a brewery. Even more, when you are starting it in a different country and face all kinds of challenges. You give it your best and seems like nothing is enough — yet you choose to keep going and give it your everything, that is sisu. Keep calm and keep going. Today you can enjoy this perseverance in a form of this Double IPA.
