Old Jam Jack on the way to Copenhagen

As we're moving into winter I'm trying to wear my new raw denim Jack from Dr.Denim's Old Jam range a little more. The weight is really heavy and the cut fantastic. Think skinny jeans below the knee and a little baggy above the knee. 

For those that don't know, the Old Jam range is where Dr.Denim looks back to clothing that was. Heavier weave in denim, shirts and jerseys. Bigger cuts and oh so nice. Worth a look.

Hops stains

Over the years, writing on this blog, I've been asked a lot about different kinds of stains and how to get it out of denim. Wine, coffee, ink, beer and so on. I have even needed to get some out myself. However, no one has ever asked me about hops, especially just after a beer has been brewed.

You see, I have these raw denim shorts, when we brew beer, and I've had to clean the brewing kettle yesterday. So I got a lot of dirty hops water on them yesterday, but they seem to have handled that pretty well. No stains this morning. I have washed them once already, so the shrinking has been taken care of. All in all, not too bad.

Grinding malt makes my jeans look cool

There's just something about grinding malt, and what your jeans look like afterwards, that leaves them looking cool. I've gone through testing jeans for a period of 6 months everyday on two occasions, and this look beats it hands down. Maybe it also has to do with the smell of the crushed malt, especially the the darker roasted malts. Cause there's so much old farm or bakery smell in the air.

I wonder if its possible to fake this look and smell in jeans? Perhaps not. Therefore I'm glad I get to wear these jeans in our brewery.

Brewery Boy

Hi everyone

Finally I get a moment to think, a moment to write and a moment post what I have been up to during the last 6 months. We've opened a brewery.

The brewery is called Beerbliotek, and is in the cultural heart of Gothenburg. So far we've brewed 9 different beers and we're in a lot of pubs and restaurants in Gothenburg and in the south of Sweden, all the way down to Malmö (pronounced Mall-muh).

Now having said that, my love for denim has not diminished in the slightest, as we're working closely with the guys, and girls, from Dr.Denim. Our workwear is denim, see pics. So what will happen now is that this blog will still be focussed on all things denim, but I get to wear them a lot in the brewery, so there'll be a lot of posts from that. And believe me, they go through a lot of wear in a brewery, from grinding malt, to brewing beer, it's wet, it's carrying, it's bottling and kegging and a lot more.

Hope you'll keep on following my adventures with denim.
