Stockholm Brewers Festival will have its next event on Saturday October 28th 2017 with Nya Carnegiebryggeriet at their brewery in Stockholm - The Halloween Mash.
It is a non-ticketed event for Halloween featuring 5 limited edition craft beers brewed specifically for the event from Stockholm Craft Microbreweries (PKLK, Stockholm Brewing Co, Nordic Kiwi Brewers, Brewing Költur, & Nya Carnegiebryggeriet)
These beers are inspired by US Pumpkin Beers, and last weekend we sourced 800KG of oversized massive pumpkins from Öland. These pumpkins weigh from 100kg -275kg. They will be used as casks, and will be hollowed out, blow torched, filled with beer, and tapped at the event. It should be quite fun! That's right, you read correctly, they will be tapped like a wooden cask :)
These pumpkins were grown in the town of Löttorp by farmer Albin Helgesson who competes in agriculture growing competitions. He says this year they were quite smaller then previous years, but he did get a 300KG pumpkin from the harvest festival this past weekend in Öland.
The event will also feature a pumpkin carving contest, halloween costume contest, music, special food menu, + more.
