Natur x Barrel Project LDN – Symbiotic Momentum – Biere de Miel
This is the first collab beer from To Øl Natur, brewed with our friends at The Barrel Project (UK). We brewed this at our brewpub BRUS and drove the wort out to To Øl City for aging and blending. The honey used for bottle conditioning in this beer is very special and rare. It is called “Honeydew” or “Forest Honey”. Any given hive can sometimes contain one frame of this dark-colored honey. It is made when bees take nectar from the butts of aphids who in turn are boring into a tree and eating the sap. The aphids turn the tree sap into nectar, the bees then turn the nectar into honey. Amazingly, this honey contains less glucose and instead has maltose, which is the sugar contained in the malt to make beer.
To Øl is a young Danish craft beer brewery founded in 2010. When To Øl was founded, we were sick of hundred years old breweries claiming territory only due to old age – instead we wanted to give beer some youth. At To Øl we do contemporary beers. We brew a wide range of potent, provocative, fresh and floral beers; hoppy, balanced and complex beers both light, dark, strong and simple. We brew the beers we want to drink ourselves and work to do the best beers in the world. We never compromise on taste and balance and keep pushing the boundaries of great beer-crafting.
