HØST No 01 2018 på Bøgedal: Et eventyr for alle sanser. 

Vi høstede frugten af deres årelange dedikation
På Bøgedal brygger de stålsat på facon og med et niveau, der er uden dansk sidestykke. De fråser med råvarerne og er overdådigt gavmilde med deres tid og indsats. De gør sig kort sagt, utroligt umage.
I august var tiden kommet til at lade gæsterne høste frugterne af deres årelange dedikation og indsats. Bøgedal inviterede til Høstfest! Gæsterne blev inviteret på en smagsmæssig opdagelsesrejse og smagseventyr. Fra den gamle gårdsplads, med hvidkalkede vægge på alle sider, lå det hele foran dem, smukt indrammet. Ikke som et glansbillede. Nej, som et stykke lokale virkelighed, lige derude på Høllundvej, forbi Jerlev på vej mod Ødsted. Idyllisk? Ja, på sin helt egen jordbundne og landlige måde. Og ganske unik. Som kastanjetræet med dybe rødder og himmelvendte grene. En forbindelse mellem jord og himmel. Mellem gæst og eventyr. Mellem mad og øl. I mødet opstod magien. En magi med dybe lokale rødder. Resultatet af års dedikation og kompromisløs 'gøren sig umage'. Eget korn fra marken, råvarer i rigelige mængder, forfinet smag og håndværk i særklasse. En umage, man kan smage. Er du i tvivl, så prøv selv.

The art of manifesting a field hut

The art of manifesting a field hut

“Patience. The process of making is a process of quiet observation and minute adjustment as much as it is creation and physicality. This structure was years in the making - it started with several models of varying size, then 8 holes dug by hand, acquiring and preparing large wood posts, raising the entire structure using a tractor and recycled bailing cords with cranks and chains, using two axes to strip foraged branches down to usable sizes, and thatched by hand with the help of an afternoon tutorial. It is a gorgeous monument to the patient creative mind persevering and how much can be achieved with the dedication to a vision.”

Bøgedals moods in HØST

Bøgedals moods in HØST

In August 2018 we invited to a "taste of harvest". A sensual exploration centered around beer and food. Our plan was to use the entire farm, the ravines and the brewery to put people in the mood of “Bøgedal”. We live in the middle of Vejle river valley. The longest tunnel valley of Northern Europe. It was a unique local event, first of its kind, that celebrated the best the area could offer of craft beers, meats and vegetables. Masterfully composed as a magical dinner, with long tables in the barn, under large bouquets of sunflowers from our field.

We had asked the guests to meet under the beech tree, in the courtyard. A tree with deep local roots and ambitions to reach the sky and the clouds. Like us and our artisan approach to all that we do also beers. Everyone was greeted expectantly. To embark on the journey and the adventure of Bøgedal.

They were promised the best beer from our cellar, the best meal made by our Chef of the house and locals greens. Beer made on Scandinavians only free fall brewery. Meat that had lived on grass vile overlooking the valley's most beautiful view and in addition was fat on nutritious mask. Vegetables from the region's most magical greenhouses. The guests were not disappointed.

From the beech tree, guests were brought into one of the farms 4 buildings. The Brewery. With the boiler, shaped like a bulls head and vessel hanging in chains. Everything but industry. Crafts and methods, with roots in the old days. Simple and raw. With processes that gently and safely create the sublime "good beer" Bøgedal is internationally known for. 740 liters at a time. That’s it…
