Wild in the forest
Axel Kiesbye has always been a nature lover. As a child, he was already fascinated by untouched forests and the wild, nature is his favorite retreat and the never-ending source of his inspiration. On one of his forays through wild terrain, the brewer came up with the brilliant idea for a new beer creation: forest beers. Kiesbye wants to brew the variety of aromas of the forest into his beer, bring the forest into the glass. To do this, he throws various tree components such as branches, blossoms, leaves, cones and fruits into the kettle and composes a masterpiece of aromas that transports you straight into the forest. Kiesbye cleverly manages to pack entire flavor landscapes into his beer. A sip of forest beer and you're standing in a sun-drenched clearing in a dense forest, ferns overgrow the forest floor, birds chirp in the treetops and it smells wonderfully of dew-drenched grass and earth. If you don't believe that, you should urgently open a bottle of forest beer and experience your green forest wonder!
Beer (know) for everyone
Under the motto “Kiesbye Mission”, brewer Axel Kiesbye has made it his mission to establish beer as a holistic experience. Beer should be released from its existence as an underestimated after-work drink and raised into the ranks of culinary delights. For Kiesbye, beer is a complex, subtly composed drink that must be perceived, experienced and enjoyed. As the founding father of the training to become a beer sommelier and ambassador for barley juice, Axel Kiesbye developed an academy for beer culture where anyone interested can find out everything about beer. Everyone who has seen Kiesbye live can feel how passionate this man is for beer. He is a passionate brewer and beer is his life motto.
