  • Alvor

    Kinn Bryggeri

    – Wild beer with Brettanomyces 6,5%

    Freshly bottled, Alvor (Serious) is a lively, top-fermented, classic Belgian Trappist. But as the wild yeast propagates, other notes come increasingly into prominence. Allow the bottles to mature in the basement for a year or so, and you will understand what we mean. Have a bottle on hand as you “get serious” with Norwegian fermented “rakfisk”, cured leg of mutton, or goats-milk chèvre.

    Malt: Pilsner, Munich, Crystal and Black malt

    Hops: Magnum, Mittelfrüh, Fuggles and Bobek

    Yeast: Fermentis T-58 + Brettanomyces Bruxellensis

  • Bøvelen

    Kinn Bryggeri

    – Belgian triple 9,0%

    Named after the Devil, as the label drawing indicates, Bøvelen is a Tripel that demands respect. Once we saw how the Belgian Trappist monks brew their strong beers, we just knew we had to continue the tradition in Kinn Brewery. Despite the high alcohol content, Bøvelen is a refreshing beer. Like a true Belgian Tripel the colour is golden, the notes well-balanced in the Belgian style, with sprightly hoppiness and a tiny hint of sweetness in the finish. The alcohol, by contrast, is well concealed. This Devil’s Brew is a feisty companion to cheese, rich fish dishes and as an aperitif.

    Malt: Pilsner malt and sugar

    Hops: East Kent Goldings and Hallertau Mittelfrüh

    Yeast: Wyeast 3787 Trappist High Gravity

  • Brottsjø

    Brottsjø – Kinn Bryggeri

    – Double IPA 8,5%

    Kinn Brottsjø – the aptly named “crashing wave” – is our double IPA containing no less than 8.5 % alcohol. Brewmasters strive to strike the right balance between maltiness and hoppiness in extra strong beers, so we rely on Belgian Trappist monks for the yeast and a generous helping of sugar to bring out the ideal blend of malty sweetness and alcohol. The hoppy punch derives from American Zeus, Citra, and Mosaic, with just a touch of Japanese Sorachi Ace. The resultant brew is fruity and spicy all at once. With such a powerful taste, this beer is best enjoyed by itself. Or you can combine with a platter of strong cheeses.

    Malt: Pilsner and Pale Ale malt

    Hops: Zeus, Sorachi Ace, Citra, and Mosaic

  • Dampen

    Kinn Bryggeri

    – American Steam Beer 4,5%

    Our very own Dampen – meaning Steamboat – is reminiscent of the classic Anchor Steam Beer from San Francisco. Following the original lines, Dampen is brewed with lager yeasts at high temperatures. The result is moderate fruitiness from the yeasting process, and a fine malty presence. Dampen evinces a delicate balance of hoppiness and malt, with the hops slightly in the ascendance. German Northern Brewer hops are preferred, tempered with a little American Cascade towards the end of the boil. The resulting brew has a pure, bitter note, combined with a slightly spicy aroma reminiscent of wood, citrus, mint, and blackcurrant. The malt blend includes Pilsner and caramel varieties. Our current Dampen, created for the Fjordsteam Fjordboat Festival in Florø in 2010, quickly became a regular favourite. It is fitting therefore that the label depicts a famous local steamer, DS Atløy. Dampen is an all-purpose table beer that complements a variety of menus, coping especially well with rich or spicy dishes.

    Malt: Pilsner malt and caramel malt

    Hops: Hallertau Northern Brewer and Cascade

    Yeast: Wyeast 2278 Czech Pilsner

  • Gamleguten

    Kinn Bryggeri

    – Pale stout 7,0%

    Stout, a word that does double duty in England and Norway, originally denoted a strong beer. Either the darker, Porter Stout, or the lighter, Pale Stout. Stouts used to be generally stronger than the regular, everyday ale. Nowadays the term tends to mean a dark, top-fermented brew. Here at Kinn we take our history seriously, so we brew our Gamleguten “Old Boy” Pale Stout like a brown ale, with a taste that is darker than the pale hue would suggest. As a strong, relatively pale ale, it is a proud representative of the Pale Stout family. Gamleguten has a complex, though balanced, malt flavour with hints of milk chocolate, nuts, caramel and a touch of coffee. To the mash we add Pale Ale malt, amber malt and caramel malt, with just the one hop variety from East Kent Goldings. As with all our Anglo style beers, our yeast partner is Wyeast 1318 London Ale III. Gamleguten won a bronze medal in Barcelona Beer Challenge in 2016.

    Malt: Pale Ale malt, caramel malt and amber malt

  • Globetrottar

    Kinn Bryggeri

    – IPA 4.5%

    Norway lacks the climate to grow our own hops, so we have to trawl the hop farms of the world to find our ideal shade of flavouring. Kinn’s Globetrotter has indeed been around the world, gathering hops from Europe, America and Oceania. Together the partnership results in an exquisite IPA that finely balances citric, tropical fruit, spicy and flower bouquets. But not too overpowering, subtlety is also a virtue!

    Malt: Pilsner, Munich, Cara Clair and Crystal malt

    Hops: Magnum, Galaxy, Citra, Simcoe, Cascade and Bobek

    Yeast: White Labs London Fog

  • Gull

    Kinn Bryggeri

    – Blonde Ale 4,5%

    Gull – meaning Gold – is a light, zestful Blonde Ale, a halfway house between Pilsner and Pale Ale. Top fermentation at a moderate temperature reduces the fruitiness but enhances the raw malt and complex hop tones. Ideal as a thirst-quencher or accompaniment to light meals.

    Malt: Pale Ale, Pilsner, Munich and Cara malts

    Hops: Magnum, Saaz and Sapphire

    Yeast: Safale US-05

  • Havblikk

    Kinn Bryggeri

    – Gose 4.5%

    Is there any better way of enjoying a visit to the majestic Outer Skerries Lighthouse than with a glass of Kinn Calm Sea? Amaze at the eerie presence of the Kinnaklova Cleft Mountain as the sun sinks below the horizon. Havblikk is a light, refreshing Gose-style, top-fermented wheat beer, using soured wort prior to kettle-boiling. Yet this Gose is not sour, but has the merest hint of acidity for that added jest. Spiced with touches of coriander and salt to accentuate the refreshing tang, this exceptional glass is ideal on a hot summer’s day by the ocean, and a perfect accompaniment to light seafood and salad dishes.

    Malt: Pilsner, wheat and soured malt

    Hops: Magnum and Styrian Bobek

    Yeast: Fermentis US-05

    Spices: Salt and coriander seed
