Denmark and the “Gasoline” at Randers Bryghus
Randers Bryghus is located in Randers SV, Denmark, a city on the Jutland Peninsula and is Denmark’s 6th largest city which became a thriving market town in the middle Ages.
For over 5000 years the Danes have been drinking beer and it has been a part of their culture since 2800BC, and up until the Middle Ages, women brewed the beer!
In 1525 Copenhagen, established a guild and made brewing the work of a man and the guilds was a creation of small breweries which were to deliver beer to Kings and military officials with a ration of 10 litres per man per day.
Women still brewed in the countryside, but as the beer was a popular drink for the Danes, breweries began to form and after Bavarian Beer was approved by the king, more competition came into play in Denmark with micro breweries forming and competing and today there over 200 micro breweries in Denmark with unique and different tastes and it was recorded that the Danish consumed about 453 million litres of beer in 2010 which means that they enjoy their beer.
Many breweries have attempted to make interesting and crafty beers, but very few have actually made it into the Denmark market.
Those that have, know their product and the “Liquid Gold” well enough to ensure that the future of their breweries survive successfully for years to come with their experimentation of flavours and the brewing methods that allow consumers to enjoy around the world.
Randers Bryghus is located in Randers SV, Denmark, a city on the Jutland Peninsula and is Denmark’s 6th largest city which became a thriving market town in the middle Ages and many of the 25th century half timbered homes are still there today.
The brewery was established in 2007 and beer is brewed without the use of automation and is unfiltered and unpasteurised with the capacity to hold 1000 litres and the craft beer is carefully managed to avoid residues in the fermentation process, but each beer is handcrafted with good ingredients and the dedication to the brewing process as well as the time taken to brew has given this brewery’s award winning beers.

The brewing can be divided into three stages with mashing being the first step.
It begins with a broken down malt and seeds mixed with water in a temperature controlled mashing tub that allows the enzymes in the malt to break down starches into sugars.
The wort is separated, boiled and then hops are added to it and sifted out.
Once the wort is cooled it is then placed into a fermentation tank with added yeasts.
The temperature is controlled in a tank, depending on the type of the beer.
After about 10 days of fermentation the beer is carbonated and placed into a stock tank for about two weeks before it is bottled. The beers are not filtered, allowing the full flavour to come out.

Michael is an online enthusiast, with a lot of knowledge about online marketing. Traveling around the world to hunt for the perfect wine. Latest on Sicily, where Etna has a huge impact on the taste, which is strong with a bitter aftertaste for the youngest wines, but older wines are fantastic. Drinking wine, and writing about them, are one the passions. Remember to drink responsibly 🙂
