The Lervig beer which has gained the most recognition recently is the ambiguously named 3 Bean Stout. These beans actually refer to coffee, vanilla and tonka, which together create a silky, dark and almost spicy flavour. This 13% brew was crafted with the Brazilian Way Brewery, and is said to pair perfectly with sticky BBQ meats and vanilla ice cream.
Aegir IPA – Aegir Microbrewery
You'll find the Aegir Microbrewery in the scenic surroundings of Flam, which sits amongst the fjords in southwestern Norway. This is a brewpub which celebrates tradition – here, you can sit down by the roaring fire in surroundings inspired by Norse mythology.
And then, of course, there is the beer. Having won a range of medals in international competitions, the brewery has earned itself the reputation as one of the best in all of Norway. We think the best place to start is with the Aegir IPA, which features a distinctively American, hoppy flavour. However, in true Aegir style, it’s been given a Norwegian twist – it features hints of pine and spruce, reflecting the vast Norwegian forests which surround the brewery. For something a little headier, try the Sumbel, a porter. You can even taste Aegir on home turf – you'll find it on tap at a variety of pubs in London.
