Since time immemorial, our ancestors have drunk beer. Beer is part of Danish culture and, even though the proud Vikings are best known for their sweet, honey mead, beer also played a major role in their everyday lives. The reason beer was so significant at the time is that water could be hazardous to health. So, they brewed beer to quench the thirst of both children and adults. Light, weak beer was for thirst. Dark, stronger beer was for pleasure. Today we make both and, like the Vikings, we must remember that beer is more for thirst than for consolation.
Ørbæk Tyr was inspired by the Viking god of war of the same name. Tyr sacrificed one of his arms when he had to shackle the Fenris Wolf with the unbreakable, enchanted fetter, Gleipnir. Like Tyr, this beer is dark and hot-blooded, so make sure the god of war doesn’t play a trick on you when you reach the bottom of the bottle.
