HaandBryggeriet is a small brewery located in Drammen, Norway. On their website they state that, “our small brewery is run on an voluntary basis in our spare time.” I had this beer on tap at Church Key in San Francisco, CA on October 20, 2010.
This beer is black, malty, roasty, some cola nut flavors with touch of vanilla, which reminiscent of cream soda. It is smooth and delicious.
I enjoyed this pint of porter on tap at the Speakeasy brewery for the Halloween party on Friday, October 29, 2010.
Clear dark orange, floral & spicy & grapefruit aroma, malty, not too sweet, not too dry, spicy bitterness, piney.
This is a “very limited release” beer by Speakeasy Ales and Lagers in San Francisco, CA that I believe was only available at the brewery. I enjoyed a pint of this tasty Double IPA at the Speakeasy Brewery for the Halloween party on Friday, October 29, 2010.
