Christening Lagertha & Our First Brew

Like all our tanks, the mighty 15 bbl brewery Lagertha needed to be christened before she was used for brewing.

Brie’s voice rang clear across the brewery on the chilly December morning as we christened Lagertha moments before our first mash-in.

After a tiring 27-hour brew day for the first brew on our 3-BBL system, we prepared ourselves for the worst as grain and water filled our new mash tun. However, much to our surprise, things went incredibly smoothly during our first brew-day and a 15 BBL batch of Contradiction Black IPA is now fermenting away happily in our brewery!

We all agreed that a victory cigar at 10pm after a finished brew was way better than a “victory” cigar at 5am while the brew was still boiling after 20 hours of brewing.

And so began brewing on our new brewery. Named after a fierce Viking shieldmaiden, she is well equipped to take us forward to share the glory and power of beer to all the land.
