Scandinavian Midsummer was traditionally marked with pagan solstice celebrations. As Christianity took hold, these celebrations pivoted to commemorate this shift and bonfires are lit to repel 'evil' spirits. Most importantly, the day is marked with family, friends, food, and drink.
On that note, the beer at hand is a 7% ABV Pastry IPA with Strawberry, Almond, Madagascar Vanilla Bean & Lactose. A generous dry-hop of Mosaic (US) and Cashmere (US) hops contributes bright flavours of sweet and stone fruit to compliment the strawberry and vanilla. The almonds bring a satisfying creaminess to the finish.
