- Skapelsen av stor smak
En Liten Øl
In the south-west of Norway lies Sunnhordland, a fertile coastal district whose unique geological diversity of rocks and minerals has been shaped over time to a natural beauty by ice, water and weather. Here, hard-working people enjoy their well-earned leisure with quality foods and drinks.
En Liten Øl is an innovative craft brewery located in Port Steingard in Fitjar. Our award-winning beer is founded upon first-class natural ingredients and superior craftsmanship, made at the optimal temperatures and over sufficient time.
We are excited to present our new staple beers redesigned with brand new packaging. The transition from glass to aluminum is already well underway and soon all of our classics will be available in aluminum can packaging. With this change, Topas and Marmor get a whole new look. Our non-alcoholic alternative Kråkesølv, however, will still be sold in glass bottles.
By transitioning from glass bottles to aluminum cans, we contribute to a reduction of the environmental impact. Reducing the packaging volume significantly lowers the costs associated with transport and recycling, and contributes to smoother logistical operations by consuming less overall space. Furthermore, cans are superior at preserving the quality of the beer, when compared to bottled beer. Going forward, all of our staple beers will be subject to deposit refund programs of Infinitum. For these reasons, we think this change will prove to be beneficial not just for the customer and us, but also for the environment.

GULL (4.7%) is a light, yet bold pilsner enriched with a variety of american hops – flavoured with an assortment of tropical fruits including citrus, mango and apricot. While crafting this beer, we added maize to the malt base to make it even lighter.
BELGIAN DARK STRONG 2020
RYOLITT (11.0%) is the brewmaster’s favourite christmas beer, brewed in the early part of 2020 to ensure sufficient period of storage. Added to the boiling wort is a fair portion of homemade dark candi syrup, along with orange peels and coriander seeds. The result is a flavourful and aromatic beer that is well-suited for storage.
BARREL AGED 2019
An exclusive volume of last year’s christmas beer – RYOLITT (11.0%) – stored in oak barrels from Nassau and Ecuador, originally used for dark rum. One year of storage has turned this beer into a complex bomb of flavours, formed by dark candy syrup and drupes, and completed by the sweet, rounded and mighty flavours of rum.
Limited availability, exclusively during the christmas season of 2020.

DOUBLE PAIDHOPS NEIPA
WIRE FRAUD (8.0%) is a Double New England IPA that we crafted in anger after recently becoming the victim of phishing – an advanced hacker attack – that caused us to pay half a year’s worth of hops to a crook. Thus paying twice for the hops in this beer. Despite our anger, WIRE FRAUD turned out with a rich and rounded body, with lots of hop aromas including citrus and passion fruit. Enjoyed in good company, or to ail a mildly damaged ego due to, say, wire fraud.
KING & CONTENDER
DOUBLE NEW ENGLAND IPA
KING & CONTENDER (8.0%) is a New England IPA hopped with the king of hops, Citra, and its contender HBC586, an experimental hop from The Hop Breeding Company. A light and rich beer with aspects of citrus and tropical fruits. Can the contender measure up to the king?
