Featured Community: For Finland, Nordic Summer Ale
by Andrew Gibbs on 10/16/2020 | 2 Minute Read
For Finland is a home-brewed small-batch Nordic Summer Ale infused, inspired, and dedicated to the Finnish summer.
Yann Green (head brewer) and Santeri Lohi (designer + assistant brewer) teamed up to create the ultimate sauna beer. Though brewed in London, it features birch water, birch wood, birch leaves, pine, juniper, blueberries, and even a splash of lake water—all collected by hand in the great outdoors of Finland.
In true home-brewing fashion, it gets bottled into a variety of different kinds of recycled glass bottles, each receiving a slightly different design treatment. The label is deliberately under-designed and sets the right tone for the beer: modest, light, refreshing, and taking you straight to the Finnish summer.
For Finland is a labor of love through and through, inside and out.
