KOREAN BEER KID
Akkurat is one of the most famous beer bars in the world. Located in the Södermalm in Stockholm, Sweden. This bar is a special one; you simply do not see such extensive cellar list as well as the exclusive blends just for Akkurat. I sensed that most people have one bucket list when they visit Akkurat: Soleil Du Minuit, lambic blended with cloudberries just for Akkurat. Also known as one of my favorite lambic in the world. Let's look into what makes Akkurat so special compared to millions of beer bars in the world.
Cloudberries...? What is that?
Many people are quiet foreign with the fruit, Cloudberry. Now known more as endangered type of berries, cloudberries usually grow near the Arctic circle, usually in Norway, Sweden and Finland. Looking like mutated yellow raspberry, this sweet and unique berries are mostly acquired manually without the help of big farms since the production is very limited. Brasserie Cantillon blends this beer specially for Akkurat. Since cloudberries are hard to get and limited to seasonality, that is what makes this Soleil du Minuit one of the must tick beer when you visit Stockholm.
How to Visit Akkurat
1) Walking is beautiful in the city of Stockholm. If you are walking from the city center, you will walk through Gamla Stan, the old quarter of the city.
2) There are so many options for public transportation: You can take bus, subway and boats (Gamla Stan ferry) to go to Akkurat. Simply get out at Slussen subway station to reach Akkurat in walking distance.
3) Omnipollo Hatt is only a few blocks away from Akkurat. I tend to visit Omnipollo first then head to Akkurat.
