Sea Buckthorn

        Sea Buckthorn is a very Scandinavian berry. I had only heard of it but never tasted it before I moved here. On the island there is a wonderful couple that moved here to start up a sea buckthorn plantation. Camilla and Mads have created Høstet which they...

An Incredible Season for Plums

                            What a year it has been for fruit on this beautiful island. Every time we walk through the forest close to us there is something to nibble on. I like walks that provide me with snacks. Anyway the plums have gone crazy. All over the island...

‘She’s In Charge’

And now for a little episode that TV2 Bornholm did on us. Seeing I knew the interviewer and she followed me around with the camera man for about 4 hours during a brew day, I was very relaxed and chatty and generally myself. I also thought they would edit out all of...

Jester King – Texas comes to Bornholm

                  What a couple of days. Seven of the Jester King crew came over and spent a couple of days on the island. We ate. We drunk. We foraged. We farmed. And eventually we brewed. A month before they arrived, they sent over their house culture which we built...

3rd Round of Barrels Arriving

              Another day and another truck pulls up at the brewery. We know the delivery men by name now as they come here almost daily. They even know where the key is so they can put stuff inside if we are not around. But back to the barrels. Bourbon, Cognac,...
