Neil Sharp from Innis & Gunn, (one of the guys behind one of Scotland’s most successful international craft brewers) came to Sweden with a wish for going out on a rib. So that is what happened, we started off with some nice beer at No 53 in Gamla Stan.
And then we all geared up in these pretty clothes;)
And then take off, we had a fantastic ride looking at Stockholm from the seaside in the dark! After 30-40 minutes we ended up at Tranholmen, a little island in the Swedish archipelago. At this island there is a chef that has dinners in his home, David at Home. Very nice!
We were greeted with some nice Session IPA from Innis & Gunn, and little cold smoked halibut cones.
So we had this menue that was paired with the different beers. The most interesting match was the new beer that won the Imagine & Gunn in Sweden. Koge’s choice. It’s a dark stout with Swedish gingerbread in it. We had it with some blue cheese. A very nice match.
But I have to say that I prefer to drink one of my favourites, Blood Red Sky. I just love it, the flavours just get stuck. And I just want more. The Blood Red Sky is made with the barrel into beer method with Jamaican rum barrels.
We had a great night, good food and beer. A band with a Scottish singer performed for us, and a fell asleep with a big smile after the ride back with the taxi boat.
