(Belchertown, MA) – Here is the latest on Kissmeyer Beer from Tuesday’s Shelton Brothers newsletter. On a side note, we’ve also seen a number of new label approvals come through the TTB recently for Kissmeyer Beer which may or may not be related to some of these collaboration beers.
In 2000, Anders Kissmeyer left his job at Carlsberg to start something very new in Denmark: a brewpub. After guiding the ground-breaking and award-winning Nørrebro Bryghus for 10 years, he struck out on his own, with Kissmeyer Beer and Brewing. Taking the model of a “gypsy” brewer, for which Denmark seems to be famous, Anders has been making beers all around the world. The two most recent beers were brewed in the US: Honey Porter and Stockholm Syndrome DIPA. Importing the brewer and not the beer has given us a chance to offer the beers at very competitive prices.
Anders has been busy doing collaborations as well, most recently with Elliot Bay Brewing in Seattle and Moonlight Brewing in Santa Rosa. Limited amounts of these kegs will be available soon, mostly on the West Coast. Following The Festival, he also brewed a beer with Hill Farmstead and Djaevlebryg in Greensboro Bend, VT. Shaun Hill was head brewer at Nørrebro Bryghus before starting Hill Farmstead. Other collaborations have taken place in Canada, Sweden, Finland, and Lebanon.
