The Finnish term kalsarikännit, which has spread around the world, has also inspired foreign beer makers, and since the beginning of July, beers called Kalsarikännit have been found at least in Australia and the Netherlands.
On Thursday, the Two Birds brewery in Melbourne, Australia, announced two new cells with Kalsarikännit in Finnish cans.
One of the beers is a dark stout flavored with vanilla and cocoa and the other is a tropical fruity hazy pale
Kalsarikännit beers are hailed as suitable for lively winter evenings and days. Australia is currently in midsummer and in Melbourne on Friday the meter showed only 6 degrees Celsius.
The brewery illuminates the word “pantsdrunk” in English, which translates to pants, which means drinking alone at home in their underwear without the intention of going out.
- In other words, as an antidote to isolation? suggests brewing in Corona times.
Two Birds is Australia’s first fully female-owned brewery. The company of Jayne Lewis and Danielle Allen started in 2011 and has a selection of five beer brands. Underpants are among the changing special areas.

On social media, at least Finnish commentators are already asking for beer, but according to the brewery, they only deliver Kalsarikännit cans within Australia.
Brouwerij De Prael, a brewery operating in the historic brewing districts of Amsterdam’s Old Town, unveiled its own Kalsarikännit draft beer on Wednesday. It’s the brewery’s July specials.
The name is justified by the fact that the beer is made from Finnish yeast. The brewery’s Instagram pages recall that, like the pods, “some traditions are worth copying and are 100 percent corona-safe”.
