Sori Brewing @ Olut & Vi*** Expo Finland 2014

It’s time for the Beer & Whiskey Expo Finland 2014 and we are thrilled! Along with the Finnish craft beer greatness, there are beers from breweries like BrewDog, Founders, To Øl, Sierra Nevada and many others. All the beer lists can be found from a Finnish beer blog, JaskanKaljat.

And if you happen to be interested, you can get your tickets here. The expo will take place in Helsinki Kaapelitehdas 24.-26.10.

Sori at the Expo

We dedicated our range to our favorite beer style, India Pale Ale. We bring our two flagship IPA’s, the Investor IPA and OoO Session IPA (Vol.2). The newest addition is What is my name? Black Rye IPA, which is black and bitter like Finland’s Social Affairs and Health ministers set of values.

expoon_rakenneltu_tiskiWe actually did some Do-It-Yourself work and built our bar counter out of three wooden pallets. One part we like about craft beer is that there’s a possibility go MacGyver on some other stuff, too. One day brewing, one day finances – and the other day you are roasting pallets at a campsite on some rainy Friday morning.

Here’s our India Pale Ale counter selection of beers. We wanted to introduce our favorite beer style and dedicated this counter for IPA only. Hope we get you to taste this stuff, since if you ask us (or anyone), it’s pretty great!

What is my name? Black Rye IPA – 6,3% alc. 80 IBU

blackipa_expo2In Finland, you can’t really talk about things with their own names. They actually banned this event to use the word whiskey in their name – and this is part whiskey expo. So, we got angry and rebellious with our beer.

Our very special beer for this event is a Black IPA (or a Cascadian Black Ale, if you prefer). This is just like the name: it’s black and it’s an IPA. It’s not roasted IPA, not Imperial Stout – it’s IPA.

Tastes ripe tropical fruit with some fresh grapefruit. Finnish rye among with a hint of dark malt brings some sweetness and body – and of course, color. This is black and bitter like Finland’s Social Affairs and Health ministers set of values. Hopped with Amarillo, Centennial, Citra & Magnum. Humongous 80 IBU and 6,3% alc. Since our brewery is a building site, this is brewed at Kuninkaankartano Brewery.
