The formal cocktail party for our 135 th birthday last year was a great success and a lot of memberssuggested that the committee organize a similar function this year. Our hard- working committeeagreed and planned a nice formal cocktail party to be held on the 13 th of September. Sixteen peopleincl. ME booked for the night.What a disaster. The music was paid up front, due to great optimism from the committee, and wemight have lost that amount.We all want a DANISH CLUB, but if we don’t support the functions we will LOSE it. There are, asyou know, bills to be paid all year round, whether we are there or not.I’m a pensioner, with NO SUPER, but can still attend nearly all the functions incl.CAFÉ DANMARK, and a great THANK YOU to the other 14 people who joined.Don’t be lazy or mean, appreciate the committee’s job, and help to maintain HEIMDAL.A very disappointed member.J.E.Lindhardt

Snaps, Gammel Dansk and BeerSeveral members have been looking in vain for Gammel Dansk, Jubilaeumssnaps and otherproducts in the Brisbane liquor stores and subsequently asked the Committee for advice.To help members purchase Danish spirits (and beer), we have taken the initiative to work with aMelbourne based importer in 2 ways:Gammel Dansk, Jubilaeumssnaps and Taffelsnaps is available and in stock right now, and we haveplaced a bulk order on behalf of the members responding to the recent email in this regard, and thissupply will be available for pick up ex Austin Street on Cafe Danmark night 26 September.In addition we are working on a special Christmas order through the same importer, which will give usaccess to for instance Gammel Dansk Citron and Broendumsnaps provided we can get enoughorders for full cartons.Also the traditional Danish Christmas Beer is available plus other great Danish Beers – please seethe complete price list in the newsletter.All Christmas orders must be placed by 21 Septemberand wait – there is more …..Lars Kirk has taken the initiative to make some very special brews available from Thisted Bryghus,and also these products must be ordered latest by 21 September.The products includes a very special ‘Jule Stenoel’ – a ‘Porseoel’ as well as a ‘Oekologisk JuleRen’All orders to be placed with Soren Hoimark (soren.hoimark@hotmail.com) and as we have to prepay,all members must pay in funds accordingly.If this initiative is supported by members, we will repeat group orders of snaps and also attempt to getthe Melbourne importer to place another order for Danish beer and perhaps other products for Eastertime.


Jule StenølStenøl er mest karakteriseret ved, at lavasten på 800 grader ernedsænket i den næsten kogende urt, hvorved karamelisering påstenenes overflade – og i porerne ind i stenene - finder sted. Steneneplaceres – efter hovedgæringen – i lagertank, hvorved karamel, røgog ”andet godt” frigøres over mindst tre måneders lagring til øllet.Øllet er gæret med den overgær brygmesteren har udvalgt som denmest egnede – efter 10 års søgen.Endvidere er anvendt britiske aromastofhumler samt lidt andre godehumler fra blandt andet Europa og USA.Sidst var der et strejf af kryddernellike i øllet – i øvrigt til nogenoverraskelse for brygmesteren.Denne øl sælges på en 50 cl. flasker.Jule Stenøl har en alkoholprocent på ca. 8,1. Pris 7.45 $Porse Guld - DåseThisted Bryghus overgik sig selv ved at lancere Porse Guld på dåse iseptember 2007. Selvom øllet nu fåes på dåse, er det stadig densamme dejlige smagsoplevelse, som var det en flaske.Porsen erstatter delvist humlen i øllet som aroma- og bitterstofgiver.Humlen blev først almindelig anvendt til øl fra det 13. århundrede.Porse Guld fra Thisted Bryghus er i dag den eneste danske øl medPorse til delvis erstatning for humle. I dag er Porse Guld blevet såefterspurgt, at hele fire ”skov-ture” – og dermed lukning af bryghuset´søvrige funktioner, bortset fra kontor og lager den dag, er blevetnødvendig.Vi er ikke i stand til selv at tappe øllet på dåser, så derfor sendes øllettil Bryggeriet Fuglsang i Haderslev, som har denne kapacitet.Se den flotte anmeldelse ved at klikke HER.Porse Guld har en alkoholprocent på 5,8. Pris 4.90$Thy Økologisk JuleRenI eftersommeren 1998 fik Thisted Bryghus endelig lov til at fremstilleandet økologisk øl end Økologisk Thy Pilsner, hvilket resulterede imarkedsføring af den stærke, økologiske julevariant i slutningen af1998. Først i år 2000 fandt brygmesteren den sluttelige formel, idetdette øl på det nævnte tidspunkt havde fået den for ham ønskededrejning hen i retning af en frugtaroma. Indtil nu har øllet været efterbrygmesterens inderste ønske, men der er ingen garanti forefterfølgende år.Brygmesterens begejstring over frugtaromaen, som han synes erjordbær/hindbæragtig, skyldes hans tidligere forgæves forsøg på atfremkalde noget tilsvarende med konventionelt øl.Thy Økologisk JuleRen har en alkoholprocent på 7,9. Pris 5.50 $
