Old artisan skills

Taking care of the fields, growing barley, malting and brewing is old artisan skills- it’s an honor to be a part of that long tradition. 


All Gravity               

Bøgedal is Scandinavia’s only all-gravity brewery and is boiled over an open fire using local wood as fuel. Bøgedal’s brewing method is an attraction in itself, since the brew flows freely (all gravity), from vat to vessel, without pumping, creating different levels by use of hand-powered hoists and pulleys.


Real Craftbeer made by hand                            

Bøgedal is the only commercial brewery in the world that maintains the Old Danish tradition of brewing Godtoel or “the good beer” which predates the industrial age. This traditional beer is strong and very rich with many of the natural sugars still intact.

By restricting the reliance on technology and without temperature control Bøgedal tends to allow the beer to live its own life and develop naturally. The brews are never identical, even when the same recipe is followed. As each brew is unique, they are identified by the batch number printed on each label along with specific details of production such as the type of beer and hops that are used.

The secret is simply a deep communion with the raw ingredients and Gitte Holmboe works constantly to improve and refine the recipes.

 

Bøgedal brewed on barley from Nordic Gene Bank                  

Bøgedal have found a treasure trove of taste in the Nordic Gene Bank at Swallows Bart . Old Danish grains have opened up new flavors and possibilities for the beer and now Bøgedal produces malt that is not just malt, but a documentation of a Danish legacy.  But it takes patience for each new variety represents 5 years of careful labour - from the first planting to the brewing of 700 bottles of beer.
 

Over the next several years we plan to go on tasting and discovering in order to select the most interesting varieties. Bøgedal is eagerly anticipating the ability to grow and malt even more heritage grains. It will be a long journey, but since our production has been founded on an ethos of tradition and handcraft we are prepared to invest both time and care into producing a superior beer.


Many compare the taste of the first brew with champagne or top quality white wine. It is a delicate experience with interesting flavour notes that appear clear and clean side by side.


Exclusive production of 35.000 bottles annually                  

Bøgedal was founded in 2004, and has an annual production of a mere 35,000 bottles of 75cl. Each brew has a capacity of 800 bottles.

“…the brewery is Denmark’s smallest, but definitely among the most original”

Berlingske Tidende 


" When Casper Vorting guides you around the 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,
Dansk Håndbryg


The world famous Danish Newspaper, Jyllands Posten, short and sweet, describes Bøgedal Beer as, “…a world class brew with depth and originality”,

Jyllands Posten


“Brewer master, Casper Vorting, has found a magic formula for beer, justifying its position as Denmark’s most costly. He doesn’t attempt to interpret an IPA, a monastery brew, a bock or for that matter any other type of beer. Beer from Bøgedal is Bøgedal Beer, in their own home-styled fashion. “

Jyllands Posten


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”.
