In an old fish landing facility from 1937 in the center of Svolvær, local beer enthusiast Thorvardur started Lofoten’s first brewery, with a distinctive taste that comes from Lofoten’s nature. The local supplier will meet you outside Hurtigruten and will take you to the brewery, a two-minute walk away.

Our guided tour takes visitors around the only craft brewery in Lofoten, where you will learn all about the beer making process. You will also learn about the history of Lofotpils and how the special water conditions of Lofoten made it possible to start the brewery. The tour ends with a beer tasting.
