Craft beer and microbreweries

Many of Skåne’s microbreweries are open to the public and many of them arrange guided tours and beer tastings. Check out the name of the beers you like, then pop by Systembolaget, the centralized alcohol stores, and buy a selection. 

Beer in Sweden

The ancient Vikings were brewing beers, ale and mead over a thousand years ago, setting the Scandinavian tradition for great beer. The indie trend of small-scale local breweries has changed the Swedish beer landscape and added an exciting variety to the shelves in Systembolaget – the alcohol shop, and pubs and restaurants everywhere.  

Being a region compact in size and with great communications, the large number of beer producers in such a small area makes Skåne a perfect destination for beer lovers.

Here are a few of the microbreweries in Skåne you shouldn’t miss.
