"When Casper Vorting shows you around his brewery, the mind tends to wander back to those seldom times that you only experience in the cellar of a Mediterranean vineyard, when the winemaker proudly treats you to a tour of his cellar. 
This mysterious atmosphere and spirit is reflected in everything about the place: the brewing methods, choice of bottles, labels etc. It reeks of quality and a mature respect for the beers own character.”
 

Henrik Bøegh, Handmade Beer.

All Gravity Brewery
____________________________________________

Bøgedal is an atypical brewery in that it is Scandinavian’s only All gravity. The beer runs from cask to cask by means of pulleys flows from level to level without the use of pumps, and the wort is cooked over an open fire. Because of the delicate methods in use, Bøgedal can produce a nearly clear beer without filtration, thereby retaining many of the important flavours and aromas.

“Goodbeer”
____________________________________________

The brews are never identical, even when the same recipe is followed. Low technology without temperature control allows the beer to live its own life and develop naturally. Bøgedal Bryghus, as the only commercial brewery in the world, maintains an old Danish tradition of brewing so-called, “Goodbeer”, going back to the pre-industrial age. This is a strong, very rich beer with many of the natural sugars still intact.


Each brew is unique
____________________________________________

Since each brew is unique, the bottles are labelled according to the number of the brew, with the only data being the type of beer and hops, plus the brew and bottling dates.

 
 

World Class Beer
____________________________________________

Jan Filipe, Barley Wine, describes a Bøgedal Beer like this: “…is the only one in Denmark, maybe in all of Scandinavia, that is remarkably singular, finding no points of reference among its fellows. Were we to find a parallel in the world of wines, it could be nothing less than a “Pingus-beer”.

The world famous Danish Newspaper, Jyllands Posten, short and sweet, describes Bøgedal Beer as, “…a world-class brew with depth and originality”, and judges Bøgedal to be among the top 3 best breweries in the country in December 2007.

Exclusive production
____________________________________________

Bøgedal was founded in 2004, and has an annual production of a mere 32,000 bottles of 75cl. Each brew has a capacity of 600-800 bottles.

Unfiltered and un-pasteurised
____________________________________________


The beer is very delicate, being unfiltered and un-pasteurised, is ideally stored upright at 8 degrees Celsius, and protected from sunlight. Before consumption, the bottles should be allowed to stand upright for up to 48 hours so that yeast residues and sediment can settle, and Bøgedal recommends a drinking temperature of 8-12 degrees Celsius.

Bøgedal No. 125, 6,7%
“It is unbelievable how much flavor can be concocted from water, barley, hops and yeast. Like Bøgedals other beer, no. 125 is a beer outside of all genre, but I will still dare to describe it as a freshly brewed and tapped ‘Märzen’, with a loving touch of alcohol, a splash of bock and a dash of cascade hops. Both light and heavy, simple and complex. The perfect beer for lovers on a picnic.”

Bøgedal No. 103, 6.3%
”Of course, there come charming brewers out of the Vejle River Valley. Brewer Casper Vorting has found a magical formula for beer, that justifies that it is also Denmark’s most costly. He doesn’t try to interpret an IPA, a monastery brew, a Bock, or for that matter any other of the many beer types. Beer from Bøgedal is Bøgedal Beer in their own, styled fashion. No. 103 – the number signifies the succession in order of brews – is like most Bøgedals round, soft, vitally emotional and discreetly seductive.  With a hint of Porter, a bit of chocolate and zesty orange, coupled with a 6.3% kick, it has a bit more of a love-bite than the brewers other passionate undertakings.

6 out of 6 stars”

The Brewery’s own description
____________________________________________

Brew No. 101
Pale Ale, Pearl, Cascade 5.9%
Light amber, small, compact bubbles and creamy head. Aromatic sweetness with traces of honey, wheat and fine wine. A wonderful latent sweetness and bitterness with a taste of citrus. Good body, balanced and comfortable. Goes well with an informal get-together, but also with classical white meats and poultry, yams, pasta, mushrooms or mature, but mild, port cheeses.

Brew No. 103
Dark Ale with Northern Brewer, Orange, Brown Sugar 6.3%

Dark-brown beer with a dark-brown head. Smells sweet of prunes and citrus with an acidic tip. It fills the palate with its sweetness, and opens up into a pleasant bitterness. Hangs in the mouth like a dark chocolate with a faint smoky aftertaste. Goes well with venison and chestnuts, blackberries and brussell sprouts, smoked or salted meats. 

Brew no. 125 
Light, Pearl, Cascade 6.7%

Light amber with a very white head and small bubbles that leave a fine embroidery on the glass. A scent of acacia honey and fresh spring flowers. The taste is full of sweetness with notes of citrus turning into dried apricots, and finishing slightly bitter and perky. Hangs languorously on the pallet, and goes well with all types of cheese, café foods and lunches.

Brew no. 127 Copy 103
Dark, Northern Brewer, Orange 6.5%

Dark-brown, with a light-brown, tight head.  A slightly orange aroma, and a bitterness of a dark chocolate, and honey tarts. It starts out a bit sharp with a bitter café espresso finish. Goes well with hearty slow-food, even add a splash to the pot, or as a beer-marinated piece of beef. 
Brewed according to the same recipe that received 6 out of 6 stars in Jyllandsposten December 2007

Brew no. 130
Golden Ale, Pearl, Tettnang 5.2%

Amber-colored, with a café latte-colored head. A sweet smell of Danish Spruce, milk chocolate and brown sugar. A hearty beer, with a real nice creamy taste, and a good balance between the bitter and the sweet. Enjoyable as an after-dinner cap, or a relaxer after a busy week. Goes just as well with a light lunch, or mild cheeses. Brewed especially to the American market
