Bryggeri: Klostergården

Hovedbygningen på Klostergården

Klostergården Bryggeri holder til på øya Tautra utenfor Trondheim, på gården med samme navn. Der driver familien Anderssen pub, restaurant, bryggeri og overnattingssted. Klostergården var veldig tidlig ute med norsk gårdsøl, og har laget flere øl basert på stjørdalsmalt. De har også bygget sitt eget såinnhus i samarbeid med Roar Sandodden.

English: Klostergården Bryggeri is based on the farm with the same name, on the island of Tautra outside Trondheim, near Stjørdal. The family Anderssen runs a pub, restaurant, brewery, and “hotel” in the same spot. Klostergården was one of the first Norwegian breweries to brew Norwegian farmhouse ale commercially, and they’ve brewed several beers showcasing traditional stjørdal-style malts. They have even built their own såinnhus in collaboration with Roar Sandodden.

The beers:

  • Såinn #2 8% – a stjørdalsøl based on 100% stjørdal-style malts, #1 Sigmund kveik, and juniper infusion, with no hops. Strong smoke aroma.
  • Alstadberger 6.5% – a not quite as traditional stjørdalsøl, with 52% stjørdal-style malts and modern ale yeast. Also powerfully smoked.
  • ESBonsak 5% – kind of an English ESB, but with oven-baked mash a la keptinis and 100% Norwegian malts from Bonsak Gårdsmalteri.
  • Bonsak Brown 5% – kind of a brown ale, with oven-baked mash a la keptinis and 100% Norwegian malts from Bonsak Gårdsmalteri.
  • Stein-ØX-Papir 7% – stone-boiled in an oak vessel. A smash (single malt, single hop) with Bonsak Fairytale malts and English Kent Goldings.
  • Island of Stones 8.5% – stone-boiled in an oak vessel. Lightly smoked.
