As if they needed any extra encouragement to drink, Roskilde Festival guests can look forward to two beers created especially for this year’s festival.
Organisers have teamed with Danish brewing giant Carlsberg to create two new brews for music fans. The new additions to the taps will be Tuborg RÅ, an unfiltered and organic pilsner, and an organic IPA created by Carlsberg’s in-house craft brewery Jacobsen with the help of three music fans.
Festival arrangers said the new beers reflect Roskilde’s organic ambitions.
“We have an ambitious goal that 30 percent of the booths’ offerings should be organic at this year’s festival,” the festival stated. “Several products are required to be organic, including lettuce, coffee, wine, juice and all dairy products.”
Tuborg RÅ will be available throughout the festival and will cost the same as a normal Tuborg. Jacbosen’s Roskilde Festival IPA will be available in the Roskilde Food Court. It costs a bit more than a regular beer, but organisers say it is infused “with Roskilde Festival’s well-known ‘Orange feeling’ – summer, joy and love.”
One million litres of beer were consumed at the 2013 Roskilde Festival. Revelers will have a chance to top that number when this year’s festival begins on June 29, with the main line-up of music kicking off on July 3.
