Pear Single Fruit Sour Series
Landvetter, Sweden

For some beers, Dugges Bryggeri (Dugges Brewery) decides to showcase a specific flavor to really let it shine; and that’s exactly what they did with their Pear beer. They made a puckering sour beer then added pear… and a lot of it! 

BeerStyles: Sour, Tart & Funky
Style: Sour
ABV: 4.5% alcohol / volume
Ingredients: Contains barley
Availability: One-time brew

“We’ve done a lot of sour beer here at Dugges. We’ve done some many taste variants with fruit and spices that we’ve lost count. And, we’ve played around with malt bills, yeasts, levels of alcohol and acidity to the point that we almost though we’d tried everything.
One thing we hadn’t done though, weirdly enough, was to focus on one single fruit; to methodically go through fruit by fruit to see how they work and would taste in a sour beer. So, that’s how this new single fruit series started. Pear is the first fruit out but there’ll be many more. Cheers!” – Dugges Bryggeri


Big Barrel Licorice IdjitDugges Bryggeri
Big Barrel Licorice Idjit
Landvetter, Sweden

This is a big and bold Imperial Stout. Dugges Brewery has made this Stout bolder than most by brewing it with licorice, then aging it in bourbon barrels.

BeerStyles: Dark & Roasty
Style: Stout
ABV: 14% alcohol / volume
Ingredients: Contains barley, rye, and oats
Availability: One-time brew

“Idjit is one of those beers that we’ve done forever. A beer that started out as a horrible experiment. Then became our staple 9.5% ABV Imperial Stout. After a while we remade it up to 12% ABV, renaming it Big Idjit, jokingly calling it a ’Scandinavian Session Stout’. Big idjit is the perfect beer for barrel aging and refining. In fact, several barrel aged versions have carried the name Perfect Idjit. This version is taking it a step further, refining the beer after barrel aging. In this case by adding just the right amount of licorice to the beautiful bourbon barrel aged beer. What’s more perfect than perfect? Perfecter (it’s a word) Idjit. Good night!” – Dugges Bryggeri

ABOUT THE BREWERY:
In 2002 Mikael Dugge Engström, the founder, CEO and Brew Master of Dugges Bryggeri, had a meeting with an Englishman. What was said in that meeting has since been forgotten, but was said to be the reason Dugges Bryggeri is around today. The Englishman sold filters for brewing beer, as well as second hand breweries – this got Mikael to thinking about how awesome it would be to own his own brewery. After years of research, visits to other breweries, making friends and asking all the right questions, Mikael starting buying parts needed to build is own small brewery. In 2005, he opened the doors to Dugges in Mölndal. Learn more about his story here.
