Gloppen Craft Brew

Their own microbrewery...

Gloppen Brew is our very own craft brewery in the historic cellar of the hotel. Here we have two 500 litre tanks of craft brew at all times. Preben Moen, the hotel owner and manager, is the man behind this brew now sold in our restaurant. Preben became a beer stuart in 2013 at the Wine Acadamy School in Oslo, as one of only 70 in the country.

Espen Lothe from Kinn Brew has helped Preben get started, and our local brew has become a fast success. Only available in our Restaurant Stovene and cellar pub.

We now have three different brews: Ticket 217, KS Kristianiafjord and Gloppetauser.

5 different types av Brew

Name: Jubilee 150

  • Type: American Pale Ale 
  • Alcohol percentage: 4.7% 

Rich and fresh beer, produced for the occasion of our 150th anniversary. Gloppen hotel has been in business since 1866. American Pale Ale is the American version of the British Pale Alen, but added more hops. Light, fruity and useful for everything from spicy seafood to stews.


Name: KS Kristianiafjord 

  • Type: Dampøl 
  • Alcohol percentage: 5.5%

Good and bright food beer with scent of honey. Steam beer is historically produced to withstand the Atlantic Ocean to America. Presented by German immigrants to California in the 19th century. It was difficult to create cool enough fermentation conditions, therefore developing the one type of yeast that could be done at room temperature, ie as a monkey. Steam beer is darker than skirt, and much more fruity. Often called for California Steam Beer.


Name: Gloppentauser 

  • Type: Blonde
  • Alcohol percentage: 4.7%

Belgian simple and fresh beer with a lot of aroma. Light Belgian ale or Blonde is surrendering beer from Belgium, light in color and light in taste. The Belgian beer culture has had more free use of ingredients like spices, other types of malt and sugar. This often yields a more alcoholic beer without malting flavor. Blonde ale is often easier to drink for those who are not used to the darkest beer types.


Name: Jekta

  • Type: Fruity Pale Ale
  • Alcohol percentage: 4.7%

Jekta Fruity Pale Ale is a fresh, aromatic and fruity beer. We add hops in the final process of cooking and thus get a lot of fruit and aroma from the hops. Here it is the bumblebee that plays the main role, which gives the fresh and fruity beer. The malt we have used is a good mixture with wheat malt which balances the malt structure in the beer so that the bumblebee can play the main role. We ferment the beer with a layer of yeast, which gives the beer a dry and crispy finish.

Name: Christmas beer (Only in season!)

  • Type: Norwegian Traditional Christmas Beer
  • Alcohol percentage: 5.5%

Our Christmas beer is a perfect alternative to Christmas food and Christmas coziness. Christmas beer is a traditional Christmas beer that has not been added with any special spices. This means that we brew the old-fashioned way and get a very fresh and not too heavy beer. The Christmas beer is brewed with caramelized / burnt malt, then fermented with a layer of yeast that allows for malt and hops.
