Swedish and Scandinavian Homebrewing Championship

May 29, 2012

I had the great fortune to visit (and partly organize) the Swedish Championship in Homebrewing this Saturday. This year 477 different beers competed in 11 different categories.  More than 130 different beers where on site on Saturday in Uppsala, competing in the People´s Choice part of the competition. Almost 1 100 people came to taste, chatt, vote and enjoy good beer.
The competition  was organized by the Uppsala Homebrewing Club (Uppsala hembryggarförening – in Swedish) together with the Swedish Homebrewing Club (Svenska Hembryggarföreningen – in Swedish).

The overall winner this year was a Geuze brewed by Jakob Carlström. A Belgian style sour beer wins!

Silver Medal
Svart som själen (“Eng: Black as the soul”), Dry stout – Brewers: Henrik Kristedal and Pernilla Zacrisson

These three became the Swedish National Team in the Scandinavian Homebrewing Championship. This year the  Swedish Championship was combined with the Scandinavian Championship in Homebrewing (SkM). SkM means that the top three beers each from Sweden, Denmark and Norway is judged ones more by new beer judges (one from each country).
