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 Craft Beer Championship. The first two beers launched by HJORT BEER are the winner beers from the Danish Championship in 2017. “Brown Bella" - a Belgian Dubbel and "Wiener Walzer”- a Vienna Lager - which has just won Gold at the BBC in Barcelona 2020.
Another award winner saw the light of day in 2018; a Baltic Porter ”Alexander", which is named after Carstens eldest son. "Alexander" 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 has a penchant for the traditional hand brew and the good classic beer styles where balance is in focus. The beer is always brewed with the best ingredients - preferably organic.
