GABS Brewer 2014: Kjetil Jikiun from Nøgne Ø in Norway
What beer are you making for GABS?
A 10 per cent dark brown rich beer full of flavours.
Does it have a name yet?
Triple Wood Knot Brown
Where did the inspiration come from?
We were inspired by some really impressive oak we got hold of. And we thought that this beer should not be hoppy or hop driven, since the journey from Norway is long and freshness could be an issue.
Do you think it’ll be a one-off or are you considering adding it to the range after GABS?
Maybe it will return in a few years, but it is initially brewed as a one-off brew.
What do you think of the concept of GABS?
GABS is great. Good concept and well organised.
