Omega Yeast Labs Voss Kveik: On December 29th, 2015 we had the honor of being the first to offer isolate from the Gjernes Norwegian farmhouse Kveik. Its fascinating discovery/exploration and subsequent availability in the US is thanks to the efforts of Larsblog on beer's Lars Marius Garshol, the beer-Magellan of Larsblog at www.garshol.priv.no.
See here photos from expectant brewers Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery, jazzed for the arrival of their bundle of joy #Vossome:
Related: HotHead -- an OYL exclusive strain also Norwegian in origin -- comes from a different Kveik also collected in Norway and then sent away for isolation. We've made HotHead commercially available because of its extraordinary practical properties with temperature range and its uniquely pleasant fruitiness.
