HJORT BEER is a contract brewery established in 2017 by Carsten Hjort Bjerre from Aalborg. In 2015 he started brewing at home in the basement, and experimented with malt, hops, yeast and water profiles. He brewed every weekend the first year, and his methodical approach, from a background as an engineer, came to his advantage.
In 2017, he won both gold and silver at the Danish Home Brew Championship. The first two beers from HJORT BEER were the winning beers from the Danish Championship 2017, "Wiener Walzer” – a Vienna Lager and ”Brown Bella” – a Belgian Dubbel.
Since then, several new craft beers have been added to the collection. The award winning ”Alexander", is a Baltic Porter named after his eldest son. "Alexander" has just won a silver medal at the Barcelona Beer Challenge in March 2019. The same beer won the 1st prize, as the Nordic region's best Godnight beer, at the Nordic Brew Festival in 2018.
Carsten Hjort like the good classic beer styles, where the balance is in focus - but preferably with a little edge. The beer is always brewed with the best ingredients - preferably organic. Carsten brews all his craft beer at Randers Bryghus. He has great passion for the good traditional hand brew, which is of course unpasteurized, and unfiltered.
