Visit the brewery

Experience the amazing story of pilot and former mine worker Robert Johansen when he decided to build a brewery in this Arctic icescape. How did the idea come around? How could it become a reality? How much patience, persistence and madness is necessary to carry out such a mission?

During the beer tasting we will also tell you about the brewing process, what we do, where it’s being sold, and of course give you  tasters of the world’s only Arctic beer. Souvenirs for sale.
