A successful micro-brewery from the southern parts of Sweden, producing traditional and innovative craft beer is looking to enter Germany and the Italian market. Since 2012, the brewery has successfully supplied the Swedish market and is now looking for distributors with an established distribution and sales network.



An experienced and innovative craft brewery from the southern parts of Sweden, established on the market in 2012 is looking to expand into the European markets through distributors. Since 2013, the company has successfully supplied many pubs/restaurants in southern Sweden with craft beer and also "Systembolaget", the state-owned monopoly for off-premise retail sale of all alcoholic beverages in Sweden. In a fairly short period of the time, the brewery has expanded to a bigger, modern, up to standard brewing facility, with the capability to grow/expand for many years.

The brewery offers a large range of beers such as their IPA which is brewed with American hops to bring out the flavors of citrus, pineapple and passion fruit. Powerful Porter beer is brewed with chocolate malt and two kinds of caramel malt. Their brown ale is malty with a taste of hops, roasted tones of bread and nuts, with a light fruitiness. They also produce a range of standard pilseners, alles and beers with fruit tastes and can provide a full palette of beers for a distributor.

The Swedish brewery is looking to expand their business to Italy, German market. A potential partner is a company with a distribution and sales network to retailers and HORECA (Hotel/Restaurant/Café)

Advantages & innovations

Cooperation plus value: 
The company is owned and managed by highly skilled people with expertise and experience in beer brewery and commercialisation. Their new, state of the art brewing facility secures scaling for larger volumes and the modern equipment enhances the product quality, without taking away the craftsmanship. Currently, the brewery has the capability of brewing up to a million (1 000 000) liters of beer per year. The brewery produces a line/series of traditional beers, a variety of seasonal beers along with a new series with more innovative products, challenging the more experienced beer consumer. The company´s mission is to produce beers with a competitive price range.

Partner sought

Cooperation area: 
The potential distribution partner: - has an established distribution and sales network - has experience in reselling beers and other alcoholic beverages to the HORECA sector (Hotel/Restaurant/Café), stores and national monopolies. The Swedish company has the ability to attend the delivery of the beer to a designated warehouse but the potential partner needs to have the network to get the beer from there to the final retailer and, certainly, be allowed to trade with alcoholic beverages.
