The new general manager

“Monday, November 8th, Nøgne Ø got another skilled employee! This time, Haldor Berge, our new daily manager form Valdres/Arendal. Berge has various relevant background, but has spent the last 4 years in If Insurance Company as an sales manager, of course very relevant for a company expanding both national and not at least, international!
Scott Larrick, daily manager for the last year, will continue at his originally tasks – as a sales manager for our export/import market. Larrick started at Nøgne Ø for three years ago, and as a daily manager he has served a company through exiting, challenging and award winning experiences in Norway and abroad! Our “small” company at Rygene is now the proud work place for 13 employees – and with this we welcome Haldor Berge to us – being the new person to drive Nøgne Ø towards known and unknown goals in the future!”

Christmas beers released in Norway.

Christmas beers have always been significant in Norway.  Today Is the release date for this year.
We are proud to announce our four beers for this season: 

Julesnadder, Underlig Jul(Peculiar Yule in the US), Special Holiday Ale(brewed with Stone and Jolly Pumpkin) and God Jul(Winter Ale in the US).

The sensational news for this years Christmas products is that for once we have purposely aged a beer.  God Jul this year is about 10-15 months old, which we think is fairly optimal for this beer.  

We know that most Norwegians are very particular about that the Christmas beer should be fresh.  They do not understand that strong, dark beers benefit from aging.  This year we hope that we will make these people understand what wonderful things that take place during aging.

Ideally we would age all our darker beers, but we do not have the capacity.  Hence and indeed regrettably, we will not be able to do this for next years Christmas beers!!!
