Wermlands Brygghus – a craft brewery located in Värmland, Sweden
The brewery was founded in 2012 by Hans Skan. It was the first craft brewey in Värmland and the first operating brewery in Kristinehamn since 1957, when the last operating brewery was taken over by Pripps and subsequently closed.
Brewing started in 2013 and the first beer brewed was the Wermlands Premiärbrygd, a traditional american pale Ale (APA). The Wermlands Premiärbrygd was originally intended to be a one-time production, but has since become brewed on a regular basis.
As of 2019, the brewery has an assortment of twelve beers, including a seasonal Christmas beer, specials and four low-alcoholic beers.
Yearly production is estimated at 100,000 liters for 2020.
Beer tasting in the brew pub 2022
We have a brew pub where you can taste the beers that are produced in our brewery (but nothing else is served and we have no food). The brew pub is open 17.00-20.00 every Friday during summer (until August 12th). No booking needed. Address: Dalavägen 23. Se map.
Distribution is mostly limited to Värmland in central Sweden. The beers can be found at pubs, cafés and restaurants. The low-aclohol beers can also be found at over a 100 grocery stores, and the standard alcohol beers can also be bought, when not included in the local standard assortment, through special order at Systembolaget.
