For the inaugural Sandefjord Mat and Øl festival Reins powered down in the Reinswagon 2. Not knowing what to expect we packed the van pretty full. Taking 7 different kegged beers.
Awesome response, the Sandefjord people were very friendly and interested in craft beer. Several members of the community were extremely helpful and passionate. Shout-Out to Morten Uthaug whom vouched that our beer was good to his friend at Sandar Handverksbryggeri and tap room here in town, they immediately bought 5 kegs! Awesome!
Also we had some super fans, one a self described tuborg only drinker posted on our Facebook saying some very nice things about our Gone with the Lime beer. Another, a representative of the local bottle shop was extremely impressed with our Lakris beer and made sure we got our bottles in their shop! Overall, the collaborative spirit and friendly people of Sandefjord really impressed me.
The food festival itself was quite fun. Lots of great food, in particular the Vegetarian pizza from our neighbor SAAL FOOD TRUCK was quite unique with fresh new flavor combinations. 10/10!
Also, good to see our friends at Færder again and meet new breweries.
