The Brewers Association has invaded the Stockholm Beer and Whiskey Festival, almost. Since a few years back Jörgen Hasselquist and his Great Brands are collaborating to promote American craft beers in Sweden. Jörgen has been an advocate for American craft beers through his import firm Great Brands and his pub Oliver Twist in Stockholm for many years. American Craft beers is getting more and more popular in Sweden. I will probably not have any of the beer my self. I can enjoy them at a significantly lower price at home. I will explore the Swedish Brewery scene and the interesting beers that it has to offer. My next beer will not be Swedish or American. I just crave a Fullers London Porter. This is one of the things I miss about Durham, NC, a Fullers London Porter and a BLT sandwich at Bull McCabe’s. The have the best BLT I have tried yet!
