Now you have a chance to visit the origin of Western Norway Farmhouse Ale, in a real smokehouse that is part of the living tradition of farmhouse brewing in Voss.
A full brew day in the Eldhus lasts up to 10 - 12 hours, so we have designed a course over 3 days for those who wish to learn the practical details of farmhouse brewing with kveik and juniper
But a quicker alternative is available; you may join us for some of the central steps in the process, the making of juniper infusion, and the boiling of the wort. Our "kveik beer tasting room
" is a humble one, it's a traditional timber log house with an open fire on the central hearth. You may want to dress in outdoorsy clothes and shoes that can take a bit of smoke and soot.
And of course you may sample some kveik beer and a taste of the traditional ham of smoked lamb.
