Another interesting venture for us has been exporting – and we don’t mean north of the M4!  For those not following global beer trends, one of the major innovators of beer in recent years has been Denmark.  Apparently word got back there that we are doing some pretty cool things over here ourselves, so with the help of Morten and team at Danish Beerhouse we shipped over Somerland Gold, Old Freddy Walker and JJJ.  To meet local dispense requirements the beers had to be in keg rather than cask.  This led to its own set of technical challenges and personal preferences.  Having lived and travelled all over the world, we knew that excellent beer can be delivered in keg format.  The trick is to pack it full of flavour and leave  all the goodness in.  Flavour is not something we are ever short of, so that was not a problem.  And the solution to the goodness was to let the beer condition in keg just as it does in cask.  The result is keg conditioned beer, unfined, and gloriously opaque – just like a fine yeast beer you would get in Germany, Belgium, the US or Czech.  To prove to ourselves that we weren’t mad we did a side by side sampling of Somerland Gold at the Queen’s Arms – cask versus keg.  It was a hot, sunny afternoon, which perhaps helped, but the keg conditioned version went down a storm (so did the cask, if you’re wondering).  There have been requests for more kegs in the UK, so perhaps in the future…
