Nya Carnegiebryggeriet, our sister brewery in Stockholm, Sweden, has been on a brewing frenzy lately. They’ve dreamed up everything from a Strongman-inspired Strong Ale, a lager brewed from the jagged ice ripped from the harsh northern wildlands of the Torne River, and of course, a tropically-minded ode to the venerable Piña Colada.
With the changing of the seasons, they’ve been getting up to darker experiments in the heart of Hammarby Sjöstad. Even here in New York, as the night grows longer and the winds whip through Williamsburg, the warm embrace of dark, roasted malt seems just the trick, so we were ecstatic to hear that the latest out of their brewhouse was a rich, hearty organic stout.
Hingstin Eko Stout, Nya Carnegie’s first organic beer, is as dark as a winter’s night, creamy like a classic stout should be and as dry as Brewmaster Anders Wendler’s sharp, Swedish wit. The brewers looked across the globe for the hardiest organic malts, including organic pale, roasted barley, carafa and organic flaked barley from Sweden’s own Saltå Kvarn, balancing it all out with a good helping of Organic First Gold hops from the UK.
On Friday, October 21 Nya Carnegiebryggeriet is celebrating the release of their latest beer in style, shucking dozens of fresh oysters that will shine alongside Hingstin Eko Stout in a power pairing for the ages. As Brooklyn Brewmaster Garrett Oliver once said, “One can almost imagine the beer as the knife that cracks the oyster open. There seems to be a primal connection between them.” So get on over to the tasting room on the Stockholm waterfront, grab a fresh pint of Hingstin, and crack open that oyster like our ancient forebears did before us. We’ll see you there.
