A few months ago we got together with Brian Strumke of Stillwater Artisanal to brew a Kveik IPA. It was our first time experimenting with the Nordic yeast strain. We really enjoyed the flavours it produced and how it interacted with the hops we used in the beer.

Week by week the beer inside the can changed and developed, every time we opened another can the hiss gave us a buzz of excitement! So, here we are again, we’ve brewed another Kveik IPA, this time utilising our results from the last brew and getting just as giddy for our latest release.

A slight alteration with the water profiling and a touch more bitterness makes for a silky yet robust palette: We kept in the Sabro hops – we really, really liked the way Sabro’s coconut traits curved the tart qualities and interacted with the farmhouse like character of the beer.

We’ve swapped out the El Dorado for Bru-1, known for its unmistakable boozy pineapple flavour. We then finished the beer with a sprinkle of Mosaic for just an ever so slight savoury spice to finish the beer with a crisp bitter note. It’s tasting ace now… and if our last Kveik IPA is anything to go by we can expect this one to develop and improve over the next couple of weeks!

Collaboration has always been key to us here at North. It has passed on an abundance of knowledge to us, we wouldn’t be here without it. This beer wouldn’t be here without Brian at Stillwater suggesting we try using Kviek yeast earlier this year! We’re dead excited about Kveik Yeast and how it can be utilised. We hope you enjoy drinking this beer as much as we’ve enjoyed brewing it, and as much as we’re going to enjoy drinking it!
