PRINT: 15 MINUTES with Rene Hulgreen

What are some of your favorite beers? Westvleteren 12 from Belgium, most beers from Mikkeller, and then there are so many damn good beers from American microbreweries. I like most of the beers I have tried from these American breweries: Alesmith, Green Flash, Stone, Avery, Three Floyds, Dogfish Head, Bells, Surly, Founders, Great Divide, Hoppin Frog, New Glarus, Southampton, Pizza Port, Victory, Kuhnhenn, Oskar Blues, and many more.

Best beer you’ve ever made? I have three home brews that made me really happy. I made a 30 minutes pale ale, which I hopped only with Chinook hop for the last 30 minutes of the boil — great summer beer; then I made a beer called Scull Fucker, a 10.5 percent strong imperial stout oaked with oak chips soaked in red wine; and the last was a beer called English Ale No.1, a 12.3 percent strong barley wine made with English malt, hops and yeast, then oaked with oak chips for three months.

What are your future plans? One more child, hole in one, going to New Zealand, and making more crazy beers.

Skål, René

    REné is THE MAN. Nice to read about his “new life”. Somehow we are always worried about where our legends are, and if they’re happy.

    Well, rené seems to be living life very proudly. Thanks for this, ONE : )
