The latitude 55° North constituted a pivotal point throughout the life of the Danish naval hero, Peter Willemoes. He was born in Assens, became a national hero in connection with the battle of Copenhagen and he meet his death at Zealand Point – all within the same latitude. 55° North was brewed as a tribute to the life of Willemoes which was just as unique as the taste of our new series of craft beers matured in oak casks.
In the wake of his actions during the battle of Copenhagen in 1801, Willemoes became a national hero. During a battle against the English navy in 1808, however, he took a direct hit by a cannon ball and subsequently died.
As proudly and honourably as Willemoes fought for his cause, so do we brew our 55° North series – each with their own unique flavour.
55° North is available in two taste varieties, Saison and Red Lager, both in 75 cl bottles with cork plug.
