Beer and food
Beer and food shall complement each other.
When the beer and food are combined, the goal is to create a balance between the food and the beer. In the beer is normally not acid or tannins, so it is easier to combine beer with food than wine. Many sour and some salty dishes fits very badly with wine, but there are beers to suit all kinds of food. This encompasses everything from meat and fish dishes, cakes and desserts.
We want to highlight locally produced food in combination with beer, served in the cafe attached to the brewery. Here we would also like to surprise a bit. Should it for example be a vanilla ice-cream with bacon served with a rich stout for dessert? All of it, of course locally produced.
‘ELO’ was founded in November 2015 and is located in Fitjar municipality on the west coast of Norway. The name “En Liten Ol” alludes to all the good occasions it fits with a “small beer”.
On the quayside of the unique cabin area Port Steingard on Kraako, lies the new signal-building which was completed in March 2017. Along with the cafe attached to the brewery, this is a center for beer enthusiasts and others with interests for local food and beer. Magnificent coastal scenery and exciting architecture provides inspiration for both brewers and visitors.
