This year’s demo brewers who will be brewing a beer in the hall is Halvor Bjåland and Terje Haugen from Morgedal in Telemark. Since they are from eastern Norway, they will be the first ever to demonstrate the brewing methods of eastern Norway at the festival.

The two of them make up what they call Morgedal susle og ølbryggarlag (Morgedal sipping and beer brewing association), and they have been brewing together in Morgedal for many years. They’ve also done brewing demonstrations and courses around Telemark.

They’ll be starting the demonstration at 1900 on Friday evening, then continuing Saturday morning.
