Local ale

Posted: June 21, 2019 in Cool stuff, General, Jämtland (County), Stugun

Just discovered that there is a local ale called Stugubrygd here in Stugun (Jämtland County). It has been produced by our ICA (food) store and is manufactured by a well established brewery called Jämtlands Bryggeri. I like the label with the old church and the bridge etc, all located close to my new place (especially the church). On the back they mention how these parts got going back in 1290 when a Bishop in Uppsala gave a man called Gjurd Bodakarl the mission to build a guest house for Pilgrims that journeyed to Trondheim in Norway through this land. I have heard the story, the guy is a distant relative on my grandmothers side. Just imagine going out in the middle of nowhere to build this station (if you want to call it that), that took a lot of courage. I heard he never had to pay any taxes ever again if he did, too bad it did not stipulate that this would include all future relatives.
