Leon

Tired of talking my friends into pit stops at beer bars before heading out — in fear of having to drink bland lager all night — I set out to craft an ale that would act as companion throughout the evening. Fit for beer geeks and party freaks alike, Leon is assertively hopped and fermented dry using champagne yeast. The yeast and the hops in combination with a simple malt bill provides the beer with a quality of being rich in taste yet refreshing. Skål!

Technically not an IPA but nonetheless featured in 30 Great IPAs to Drink Before You Die.

Russian Roulette

Russian Roulette is a collaborative effort between Omnipollo and Evil Twin Brewing. In short; we met in Copenhagen on a cold day in January, brewed a beer each — an IPA and a black IPA — at Amager Bryghus, and sealed them in identical bottles. Bust a cap and face your destiny.

Mazarin

Mazarin is my take on a ‘thinker’s beer’. Rather than being big and undecipherably complex I wanted to create something that would calm a hop yearning nerve without fuddling the brain too much. In other words, a lavishly hopped Pale Ale of judicious ABV — an Extra Special Pale Ale if you will.

Weekday

I have always been intrigued by the thought of taking brown bottle beer into green bottle territory. So when I was asked to brew a beer for a 24h party that was to be held in celebration of Swedish fashion house Weekday’s 10th birthday, I jumped at the chance immediately.

Weekday is an ale mimicking a lager. It is brewed using a blend of English, German and American hops – one for each day of the week.

Mt. Hood for Monday, 
Tomahawk for Tuesday, 
 Willamette for Wednesday, 
Tettnang for Thursday, 
Fuggles for Friday
, Simcoe for Saturday,
 Summit for Sunday, Thank you Weekday for this awesome opportunity.

En el Bosque

It all started about half a year ago when I was in Spain on holiday with my family. I was completely blown away by the vibrant and fearless beer scene that Spain showcased, one thing led to another, and two weeks ago I flew down with my partner Karl to execute one of the most interesting collaborations we will ever have the pleasure of doing.

Traveling over seven hours each with fluid yeast and hops in their trunks the three best gypsy brewers of Spain (Nómada) teamed up with us outside Barcelona to brew an Imperial Red Ale containing ten specialty malts, rye, moscovado sugar,  hops and a hand full of Spanish cranberries (literally a hand full so don’t expect a fruit beer).

Layered yet fresh, I sincerely hope that this beer will embody the passion, enthusiasm and hard work that went into making it.

The name ‘En el Bosque’, is Spanish for ‘In the forest’.

Nebuchadnezzar

‘Neb’ is an Imperial IPA home brew recipe that has been scaled up with no consideration to economies of scale. Some say idiotic, and as an economist I would have to agree. Get fresh or die trying.

Moebius

A wise man once said that success makes you tired, fat and slow. Therefore, winning Best of Show at the third largest beer festival in the world last month meant I had to brew a follow up – an Imperial IPA brewed with wheat and sugar. Get fresh… and this time I mean it.

Nathalius

On a stop over in Baltimore we were hosted by an overwhelmingly hospitable man – Brian Strumke aka Stillwater. Getting hammered drinking his potions – made out of rice and corn – it was with a sense of inspiration that we drove of early in the morning to catch out flight back to Sweden. Nathalius is an imperial IPA brewed with rice and corn. However, fair and alluring as though she might seem this miss will whip you into submission.

Hypnopompa

On my way to this iconic brewery with a suitcase full of marshmallows I admittedly questioned my good judgement. However, sipping on a glass of this beer I am utterly happy that the purist in me stayed at home.

Omnipollo Hypnopompa is an imperial stout brewed with almost 100 kgs of marshmallows and Tahitian vanilla beans (the size of cigars). Virtually no carbonation and boiled a bit extra for good measure this is a beer strictly for the stout inclined.

Drink now or age for many years.

Fatamorgana

My parents came from Ethiopia to Sweden in the 70’s and got two kids. Me and my brother.

Over the years I have gone down to Ethiopia many times, partly to seek my roots but also to experience the wild nature that this incredible country has to offer. A memory that is particularly vivid to me was a time when I – in the middle of the dry savannah landscape – suddenly stumble into a patch of palm tree jungle within which an oasis was hidden.

This is the place where the work with Omnipollo Fatamorgana takes off.

Drawing inspiration from the fidelity of a Saison – rustic, alluringly cloudy and crisp – this double IPA (8%) was brewed using oats and wheat. Dry-hopped twice with Columbus, Centennial & Citra for maximum enjoyment.
