David Bowie. Welcome to Episode 80 – What Will Be - 2022 …
 
As the year comes to a close, we gather together once more to celebrate life and enjoy friendship. We each looked for something special to share. Martin brought out a 3 Fonteinen Oude Geuze Vintage 2016. What makes this a vintage over a regular geuze release? It's cellared for up to 3-5 years before it's released instead of 6 months. The result is …

Advent 2021 Day 24 is finally here and we're sad it's all come to an end. But we're leaving on high note with Lervig Rum Barrel-Aged 3 Bean Stout. Filled with cocoa, vanilla and tonka beans, this stout sat in rum barrels for half a year. The result is an incredible blend of vanilla, cocoa, cinnamon, coconut imperial stout. This one blew us away. Th…
 
Advent 2021 Day 23 is from Firestone Walker. We've been lucky to get both their stouts, anniversary ales, sours and more here in Sweden. Back in 2016 they released a blonde barleywine called Helldorado. This blonde is tastes of vanilla and honey. It's smooth and sweet and without being sugary. We got it just at the right time.

Advent 2021 Day 18 is from the craft beer God's of Sweden Omnipollo. A few years ago they got a cease and desist letter over their very sought after Yellow Belly Stout.

Advent 2021 Day 16 is an extra special treat. It's a lambic from our favorite brewery 3 Fonteinen. Golden Dosjel might be called a defect or it might be called a blessing.
