One brewer used to build cars for NASCAR, another is a trained social worker, and a third is a business developer at the University of Luleå. Beer interest is growing, and in Swedish Lapland, there are many exciting breweries.
Per Lundmark opens the door of Skellefteå Bryggeri, located in an area once nicknamed ‘Brewery Hill’. Per is an enthusiast who wanted to start a brewery in his home town.
— You know friends and friends of friends had money and they thought it sounded fun, so we started.
During the first years, Per did nearly everything himself, manually. Apart from brewing and bottling, and labelling, and selling and marketing, he also invented new products.
