My house is currently undergoing an extensive renovation and remodelling.

The whole place is being rewired, a new heating system is being installed,  not to mention walls coming down and new walls springing up.

I am not doing the real hard work, but even so the lifting, moving things to different rooms and cold showers take their toll.

So, what do grafters do after a hard days labour? Probably sink 5 pints in their local.

In their honour, cracked open some beers from IKEA, hoping these may give some homeowner inspiration.

Genius bottlecap

Ikea have two lagers, both of which are brewed by Krönleins Brewery in Sweden. There is Ol Mork, a dark lager and and Ol Ljus, a pale lager. They are both 4.7% ABV.

Ol Mork Dark Lager

On the whole, they are both decent and perfectly acceptable. Picking up a few is essential if you are attempting to construct some of Ikea’s larger units like their PAX wardrobe with sliding doors. Trust me, I know the pain only too well.

Ol Ljus Lager from Ikea

The pale lager had crisp bite and had enough bitterness to finish. I was expecting a lot worse. The dark lager was also surprising, it had a nice depth of roasted flavour. Maybe not to everyone’s taste but then I love dark beers.

Like working on a website, is a house ever finished? And do you dread or enjoy wandering around Ikea? Let me know in the comments!
