  • 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

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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

  • Humleriket

    Kinn Bryggeri

    – IPA 4,5%

    Humleriket – our Hop Heaven – is a light and sprightly IPA in the West Coast style with a robust, hoppy aroma that varies from batch to batch. Despite the powerful hoppiness, this ale is still gentle by nature due to the open fermentation. This IPA is neither pasteurised nor filtered, which perfectly fits the style. Ideal with spicy food.

    Malt: Pale Ale malt, Pale caramel malt and flaked oats

    Hops: Variable

    Yeast: Wyeast 1318 London Ale III

  • Ivar Aasen

    Kinn Bryggeri

    – English Barley Wine 10%

    Barley wine was brewed from a range of ingredients, but our favourite is the English variant of this beer. Our barley wine is made exclusively from English ingredients. The residual sweetness is high, and with a few years of maturation those noble oxidisation flavours emerge. Sherry and liquorice are desirable characteristics of this fine, well-matured barley wine.

    Malt: Pale ale and caramel

  • Kinn Pils

    Kinn Bryggeri

    – Pale Lager 4,5%

    In terms of style, Kinn Pils is a mix of classic Germanic and Czech summertime pilsners. The malt and hops are German, the yeast Czech. Where light German pilsners are filtered, in Czechia the premium varieties are unfiltered. Our unfiltered Pils is conditioned in the bottle to maximise the fine nuances of the first-rate ingredients and extended, cool fermentation. Lager beers take time, and we make no compromises on quality with Kinn Pils. The first pitch at 10 °C is followed by up to 2 months of near-freezing storage in vats before tapping into bottles. This is the drink for anyone wanting a light, fresh-tasting beer with intriguing character. Ideal for those who have overdone the Triple Indias and sturdy Stouts recently.

    Malt: Pilsner and melanoidin malt

    Hops: Magnum and Hallertau Mittelfrüh

    Yeast: Wyeast 2278 Czech Pils

  • Kveldsbris

    Kinn Bryggeri

    – Belgian Pale Ale 5,5%

    Kveldsbris – Evening Breeze – is offered as a clean, refreshing and not-too-alcoholic Belgian ale. It has a fine balance of Belgian yeastiness with the premier hop varieties from three wildly different districts: East Kent Goldings on England’s south coast, Saaz from Zatec in the Czech Republic, and Amarillo from Yakima Valley in the United States of America. Kveldsbris is a most versatile table ale that can cope with more spiciness and richness than a regular wheat beer.

    Malt: Pilsner malt, wheat malt and light caramel malt

    Hops: East Kent Goldings, Saaz and Amarillo

  • Landkjenning

    Kinn Bryggeri

    – Stout ale 4.5 %

    There is only one way to greet our dark brown Landkjenning – with a rousing cry of Land Ahoy! This
    dark brown ale boasts a rich roasty taste and excellent body, magically concocted from classic Black
    and Amber malts, and East Kent Golding hops. An everyday favourite that many never tire of, and
    with a well-earned reputation as the ideal complement to barbeque meats and strong, spicy dishes, a
    fine stout is perfect with taco dinners, for instance.

    Malt: Pilsner, Dextrin, Amber, Black
    Hops: East Kent Golding, Magnum

  • Malstraum

    Kinn Bryggeri

    – American Pale Ale 5,5%

    It’s an easy matter to get caught up in our maelstrom of hoppiness, less easy to put it down. Kinn’s Malstraum is a refreshing, zesty, cloudy amber APA with a tropical, fruity, hoppy aroma and crisp white foam. Lightly malted, but with a touch of bitters for aftertaste and drinkability. We selected Zeus, Cascade, Chinook, Simcoe and Citra for our hop list. Though principally intended to stand alone, Malstraum pairs well with spicy fare and barbecue dishes.

    Malt: Pilsner, Munich Malt and Caramel Malt

  • Munken

    Kinn Bryggeri

    – Belgium blonde 4,5%

    The legend of Sancta Sunniva tells of an Irish princess and her loyal courtiers who fled across the sea, finding refuge on the islands of Selja and Kinn. The legend says nothing of drink, but it is a well-known fact that beer brewing was common in the monasteries, and the monks who came to Selja in the 1100s made a brew from hops grown on the island. Our Monk harks back to the Belgian Trappist Monastery and reflects what those pious individuals imbibed on a daily basis. At Kinn Brewery we employ the same yeast and same fermentation vessels as our ancient brothers, combined with bottle conditioning for that explosive taste. Monk is moderately hopped to avoid overpowering the subtle yeast tones. Just a dash of caramel malt generates an intriguing palate for all-round table appeal. The ideal foil for light fish and shellfish dishes, Monk is served best between 6-8 °C.

    Malt: Pilsnermalt, Cara blond, Special B

    Hops: Cascade, Tettnanger

  • Pilegrim

    Kinn Bryggeri

    – Pale Ale glutenfree 4,5%

    Pilegrim is a light, refreshing Yorkshire-style regular and the very first beer to come out of Kinn Brewery when we started in 2009. The very best malt in the business is the key: Maris Otter Pale Ale malt from Thomas Fawcett, plus light caramel malt. There is crisp bitterness, and a fresh aroma of hops. Traditional English hops like Target and Fuggles are combined with the right mix of spices, earthy flavours and floral essence. We add an aromatic tang of American citrus from Centennial and Amarillo. A special enzyme digests the gluten in the barley to below 20 ppm, making Pilegrim Bitter a gluten-free option perfect for sensitive pilgrims. Ideal for white meat, pizza, pasta, and lightly spiced dishes.

    Malt: Maris Otter Pale Ale malt and light caramel malt

    Hops: Target, Fuggles, Centennial and Amarillo

  • Prestesonen

    Kinn Bryggeri

    – Brown Stout 6,0%

    The recipe for Prestesonen, our Parson’s Son stout, is simplicity itself: 40 % Pale Ale malt, 30 % brown malt and 30 % amber malt, copious doses of East Kent Golding at the start of the boil, and English top-yeast. The dry-roasted malt creates an intense aroma and complex flavours. To many this might be too much of a good thing, but for fans of English stout, the blend is perfect. Our 2015 and 2016 vintage Prestesonen is maturing slowly and is now available. Ideal for dark meat dishes and chocolate desserts.

    Malt: Maris Otter Pale Ale, amber and brown malt

  • Pryl

    Kinn Bryggeri

    – Belgian Dubbel glutenfree 7,0%

    Pryl – meaning a jolly good thrashing – is our come-back after placing as runners-up to Ringnes in the Bryggeribråk contest in autumn 2014. Pryl is partly a homage to the winner, partly the table beer we wish we had entered in the Brewery Bash competition. Belgian top-fermentation is recognised as delivering a really good table beer, and Pryl makes a fine partner with most meat dishes. Classic Belgian Dubbel is a dark ale, much of whose depth stems from the dark candi syrup added to the mash. Hops are discreet so the flavour is mainly from the intense fermentation process. We allow the heat to rise unimpeded to 28 °C before chilling. A special enzyme brings the barley gluten below 20 ppm for a gluten-free option.

    Malt: Pilsner malt, dark caramel malt, dehusked chocolate malt, sugar and dark candi syrup

  • Rosa Kinn

    Kinn Bryggeri

    – Raspberry Beer 4,5%

    Rosa Kinn really appropriately translates as Rosy Cheeks – perfect for a light, sprightly summer ale resonant with raspberry zest. Starting with a light malt base, acidified with lactic acid culture in the kettle, we add tart local raspberries from Fresvik in Sogn. The result is a refreshing, fruit-filled sour ale, resplendent with raspberries. Rosa Kinn works well as an excellent aperitif or complement to fruit desserts.

    Malt: Pale Ale malt, wheat malt, oats and sour/ acidulated malt

    Hops: Magnum

    Berries: Raspberries from Fresvik in Sogn

  • Skoddehav

    Kinn Bryggeri

    – White India Pale Ale 6,5%

    Skoddehav – Mist – is our alternative “misty” IPA, lighter in colour than our regular brand. Normally IPAs use English or American indigenous yeasts, but Skoddehav uses our Belgian Trappist High Gravity variant. Its special feature is the dry ale that results, which nevertheless has a touch of sweetness. The recipe features Pilsner, wheat and oat malts. Hops are a blend of two aromatic varieties, Cascade and Citra. Skoddehav emerges as a pale, refreshing ale with light body, balanced yeast imprint and a strong, fresh hoppy aroma. An excellent choice for spicy Asian seafood dishes, chicken and pork.

    Malt: Pilsner malt, wheat malt and oat malt

  • Slåtteøl

    Kinn Bryggeri

    – Belgian Farmhouse Ale 6,0%

    Our Slåtteøl Belgian Farmhouse Ale is a light, thirst-quenching, hay-making season favourite in the Belgian Saison tradition. Allowing Trappist yeast to run free to 26 °C, means an attenuated and spicy ale. It is very dry, almost acidic. We use Pilsner malt as the basis, adding small amounts of sour malt, wheat malt, caramel malt and Bayer malt. A hint of chocolate malt produces a deep golden colour. Northern Brewer bitter hops provide an edge, whilst East Kent Goldings impart a classic, balanced aroma with floral and spicy hints.

    Malt: Pilsner malt, wheat malt, light caramel malt, Bayer malt, sour malt and dehusked chocolate malt

  • Sommarøl

    Kinn Bryggeri

    – American Pale Ale 5.5%

    Our Sommarøl is a pale and refreshing seasonal favourite that takes its inspiration from American Pale Ale. A bright summer ale, it is dominated by hops and delightfully refreshing. Ideal by itself or at the barbeque. Available from May – August.

    Malt: Pale ale and light caramel malt

  • Stabben

    Kinn Bryggeri

    – Belgian Witbier 5,5%

    Since 1867, the Stabben Lighthouse has guided seafarers on the approach to Florø. The sprawling structure almost entirely covers the rock it stands on, and is a cherished homing beacon for local residents. Kinn’s Stabben beer is a light, refreshing wheat beer in the Belgian tradition which, true to its Belgian roots, features orange zest and coriander seed. Stabben is the ideal companion for light dishes such as seafoods and salads.

    Malt: Pilsner and wheat malt

    Hops: Magnum and Tettnanger

    Yeast: WLP530 Abbey Ale

  • Svartekunst

    Kinn Bryggeri

    – Foreign Extra Double Imperial Russian Export Stout Porter 10%

    Svartekunst – Black Magic – is a Porter Stout we brewed initially in summer 2011, to celebrate our Batch Number 100. Each year sees a new vintage, and the detailed recipe is adjusted each time, so that later tasting sessions can make some really interesting comparisons. As the label suggests, this is a highly potent and powerful beer. The bitterness, however, will fade in the cellar, and the vinous tones will amplify. Coffee, burnt notes, smoke and leather are the dominant flavours. Residual sweetness is heavy, while the hops are dry with a bitter finish. We believe this stout can improve for 20 years, hence the legend “Best After” rather than “Best Before”.

    Malt: Pale ale, caramel, amber, brown and chocolate malt and roasted barley

  • Vestkyst

    Kinn Bryggeri

    – American India Pale Ale 7,0%

    Norway’s West Coast has lent its name to this very hoppy ale, historically designed to withstand the long passage to India. Accordingly, the fine, fruity nuances from the open fermentation are rather more difficult to discern. The malt mixture, incorporating Pale Ale malt and two varieties of caramel malt, are necessary to balance the power of the hops, which are added during the final half-hour of the boil to enhance the flavour and aroma. Once the primary fermentation has occurred, the ale spends nine days with dry hops in the tank, infused with Amarillo, Cascade, Simcoe and Zeus,, before being tapped into bottles and kegs for natural carbonation. Given that this India Pale Ale is brewed in Norway’s westernmost town, the designation West Coast IPA is most appropriate. The powerful imprint of hops is an ideal accompaniment to spicy dishes, and, surprisingly, also the perfect adjunct to cured ribs of mountain-grazed mutton. Vestkyst even excels with blue cheese and carrot cake.

    Malt: Pale Ale malt, light caramel malt and caramel malt
