Kaldi popular

Kaldi, Iceland’s first micro-brewed beer, was put on market in October. The beer has been so poplar that the brewery has had problems with keeping up with demand.

Iceland’s first micro brewery Bruggsmidjan hf opened in a small fishing village in northeast Iceland last summer. Kaldi was the brewery’s first product, an Icelandic beer brewed according to a Czech tradition.

In an interview with Bladid, brewery manager Agnes Anna Sigurdardóttir said the production is going fine, but as Bruggsmidjan is only a small brewery, it is difficult to keep up with demand.

For now, the brewery only has a staff of four people and no one except the Czech brew master, who created the recipe for Kaldi, has any experience in brewing, Sigurdardóttir said.

But the staff manages still to solve every problem and now Sigurdardóttir is thinking of enlarging the brewery.

A new darker beer by Bruggsmidjan will be put on market early next year.
