New-Carnegie-Opening-Day

With the opening of our sister brewery Nya Carnegiebryggeriet, we now have an entire series of new beers for your imbibing pleasure. If you live in Sweden. Since the tapping ceremony, presided over by the Minister of Rural Affairs (for some reason) , our brewers, cooks, bartenders and number crunchers have been busily preparing for this moment. Nya Carnegiebryggeriet is open for business. And it feels great.

Listed below you can see the taplist and menu to match from chef Billy White. Whether you’re coming in for the the fresh brewed-on-location beers, tasty food or the scenic waterside views, Nya Carnegiebryggeriet is poised to become a beacon for good beer in Sweden.

The List:

Nya Carnegie J.A.C.K. (4.5%) – A sessionable IPA with a snappy pine finish, allows you to enjoy the hops without the hangovers. Named after our Swedish brewing team: (J)osefine, (A)nders, (C)hristopher, and (K)arl.

Nya Carnegiebryggeriet Opens!

New-Carnegie-is-Christened

It’s not often that one is consciously responsible for something historic. But that’s what happened to us last week in Stockholm, Sweden. Brooklyn Brewery, in partnership with our Swedish importer Carlsberg, christened our new brewery in the Hammarby neighborhood of Stockholm. This occasion marks the very first European craft brewery to be operated by an American outfit and we couldn’t be more thrilled. As reported earlier, the name comes from the oldest living brand in Sweden, D. Carnegie, brewers of the famous Baltic porter. Nya Carnegie embodies the tradition and pride of Carnegie with the innovation and creativity of Brooklyn.

Over the last two years, we’ve worked with our Swedish friends to develop a new line of beers under the banner of Nya Carnegiebryggeriet (aka, New Carnegie Brewery). Those beers are the lusciously hoppy Nya Carnegie Kellerbier, the eminently versatile Nya Carnegie Amber, the endlessly satisfying J.A.C.K. session IPA as well as deeper cuts like the dark saison, Lumens In Tenebris and winter warmer Primus Lux. To pull this off we hired a crack team of brewers in Sweden. They trained in Williamsburg, Brooklyn under Brewmaster Garrett Oliver. Since then, our Brooklyn brewers have been back and forth to Europe, working with our Swedish team,under GM Fredrik Vogel and Head Brewer Anders Wendler to get them up and running. The result is a delicious lineup of 5 beers, poured in a stunning facility for a community of beer drinkers ready for homespun flavor.

To us, NCB represents a beacon for good beer in Stockholm. The brewery will be ground zero for an exchange of ideas, techniques and styles between our Brooklyn brewers and our Stockholm team. Speaking of the team, here’s their names: Head Brewer Anders Wendler, general manager Fredrik Vogel, and brewers Josefine Karlsson, Christoffer Thurgesson, and Karl Fornarve. In the coming months check back for profiles on our new Swedish family.

But the introductions don’t end there. As if plunging into international brewing waters wasn’t enough, we’re also opening a restaurant on the premises of Nya Carnegiebryggeriet. Helmed by head chef Billy White, the kitchen will be turning out elegant food designed to pair with the beers coming out of the fermenters just a few meters away. As Billy said during the opening ceremony, the relationship between the kitchen and the brewhouse is pretty special. Cooks are tasting beer during its evolution from wort to ale. The brewers are stopping by the kitchen to provide feedback on dishes as the develop. Visit the brewery and you should find a menu of food and beer in perfect harmony.

That’s it for now. Check back for more news on this groundbreaking project.
