  • Thursday, June 13th. Scandinavi-Ale. Carolina Beer Temple. 12 pm-11:30 pm. In the past, the Swedes, Danes, and Norwegians were renowned for their fearsome Viking warriors and brutal pillaging of Europe’s coastlines. These days they are more commonly known for IKEA stores, minimalist architecture… and GREAT BEER! While Mikkeller and Evil Twin may have paved the way for the great beers of Scandinavian breweries to reach our shores, but there are so many other incredible ones worth trying that we couldn’t pass on the opportunity to show some of them off. So whether it’s a hazy IPA from Sweden’s Brewski or stout from Denmark’s To Ol, we want to expand your horizons and show you the world of Viking beer for a modern age!

    TAP LIST IN PROGRESS:

    Brewski Mangofeber Hazy IPA

    Brewski Guavafeber Hazy IPA

    To Ol Mr. Blue Imperial Black Currant Stout

    Mikkeller Wicked Sik Spells NEIPA
