A proper fruit beer should be sour and that was what we aimed for when brewing Kriek of Telemark. A beer brewed with Norwegian sour cherries and a secret ingredient that we believe has added a perfect touch to this beer.
The Lindheim Gardens located in the small village Gvarv in Telemark grows wonderful sour cherries. Perfect for a proper Norwegian sour beer. The beer has an intense and inviting red color and has an ABV of 7%.
We are very pleased with how this brew turned out and we hope you get the chance to enjoy it as well.

Nøgne ø is Norway's leading and largest supplier of craft beer and the first and only producer of sake in Europe.
Our never ending search for new flavours and ingredients constantly results in new seasonal and experimental brews.
The name Nøgne Ø means "naked island", a poetic term used by Henrik Ibsen to describe any of the countless stark, barren outcroppings that are visible in the rough sea off Norway's southern coast. We think the name also gives a symbolic picture of what the two Norwegian home brewers Gunnar Wiig and Kjetil Jikiun did early 2002, when they decided to found a new brewery. Their urge to share their passion of good beer was unbearable. Their vision was to bring diversity and innovation into commercial brewing of real ale. The result – Nøgne Ø.
Nøgne Ø's subtitle - "The Uncompromising Brewery" is a plain statement of our mission to craft ale of highest quality, personality and individuality. The alchemists realized that they could only create gold from gold – so have we. Our gold is Maris Otter; Cascade, Centenneal, Chinook and Columbus. We think Maris Otter is the best malt obtainable, hand malted barley in the traditional manner in the UK. The big C’s are full flavored hops, grown in the USA. We only use ingredients of highest quality in order to make beers of uncompromising quality.
