Ever since the Viking era, the Christmas beer tradition has been strong in Norway. As stated in the 'Gulatingsloven' (a regional law text valid until 1274), every farmer was bound by the law to brew beer for Christmas and christen it according to the new faith, otherwise running the risk of losing his assets to the king and bishop. The Christmas beer was normally brewed from the best grain of the season and would be strong with a rich malt flavour. Frydenlund Christmas Beer is a modern version of the traditional Norwegian Christmas beer.
Frydenlund Christmas Beer has a beautiful, deep amber colour and a malty aroma with notes of dried fruits, toffee and freshly baked bread. The taste is rich with hints of caramel, roasted malt and nuts.
Great with classical Norwegian Christmas dishes, such as pork and lamb ribs, as well as with raisins and nuts.
