As in other parts of the world – the interest of local beer and microbrewery has intensified in Sweden the recent years. While visiting Swedish Lapland – don’t miss the opportunity to taste what might be Sweden’s finest local beer. A recognition earned the hard way.
– I think people who live here are a bit hard-headed by nature, Tord says with warm laughter.
– Maybe that’s why we decided to make things just a little bit harder for ourselves. Making an IPA, which is very popular right now, is quite easy to do in comparison to a lager. But for us – part of the fun is to produce a really nice and clean beer using traditional methods. It’s a bit more difficult. It takes a bit longer. But it is a result of real craftsmanship. That’s why we tell people that we brew our beer with stubbornness and pride.
The claim about Kallholmen being Sweden’s finest isn’t really official yet, but they did win gold in all categories at Mid Sweden Beer & Whisky Festival this spring. According to the audience vote, they produce the best Lager, Ale and Stout.
