The Front Lines of the Revolution
At BrewDog we make no bones about being mad for the beers we brew. We brew beer we love to drink and, when we get messages from the ether connecting us with people on another small part of this crazy world as excited about craft beer as we are, it pretty much makes our day. So, when we got a kick-ass email from a crew of beer aficionados working the front lines of the Revolution in Finland, we had to share their story (and send them a box of free goodies, because their range of BrewDog’s in the fridge is impressive!).
Meet the craft beer renegades making boozy waves about 75miles north-west of Helsinki, the crew from Rivette Café Bar in Loimaa, Finland.
From left to right, say hi to: Kode, Nelli, Riikka, Janne and Jussi.
In their own words,
“What is Rivette? Just a small but passionate cafe bar located in southwest Finland, Loimaa. A bar that has seen the light over the darkness of corporate beers.
Brewdog was discovered from our local importer's catalogue, selected by name only. After the first batch, it started to grow - hugely. And no wonder after the first tasting. We soon figured out that there's more to see and we saw the light.
Our current line up contains 16 different Brewdogs, among other beers. Roughly 65-70 total.
Why craft beer over corporate? Simply put, you can taste the passion behind every bottle. You brew it with passion, we sell it with passion.
The taste, smell and the looks - craftsmanship at it's best.”
A couple of their regulars enjoying a big BrewDog hit! These two were so keen on getting their paws on some amazing BrewDogs that they bought both the Tactical Nuclear Penguin, and Sink the Bismark, on the same day as they arrived in store.
So if any of you punks out in FInland find yourself craving some epic beers, say hi to the Craft Crusaders at Cafe Rivette, and be sure to tweet us an update from the Front Lines of the Beer Revolution.
