Seth Lager is a reddish lager made of three grains: rye (Secale), wheat (Triticum) and barley (Hordeum), whose initials are also in the name of this beer. It’s malty body gets a cheer up from wheat and strength from rye. A beautiful red color finishes the experience.
The history of bottom fermented beer, known as lagers, starts in 19th century Germany. The name of this beer style refers to the type of storage used while the beers fermented. They were often stored in a chilly, even cold environment. These mild and fresh drinks have achieved the most popular beer style’s title.
Gabriel von Seth (1690-1774) was a good friend of Ehrensvärd, the fortress builder, but also known as a contributor and a gourmet. Bastion Seth still stands in the middle of a verdant herb garden in Suomenlinna.
The brewing tradition in Helsinki is hundreds of years old. The latest chapter of this story began in 1995 on the island of Suomenlinna right outside of the city. It is here that a one man brewery was founded in the former jetty barracks. The brewery has grown to be home for a small group of dedicated professionals, all passionate about beer culture in Finland. Now Suomenlinna Brewery is one of the largest local breweries in town. The rich history at this UNESCO world heritage site has been the inspiration for many new beers at Suomenlinna Brewery. Each beer and cider we brew has its own story to tell.
