An organic craft brewery
As one of the first microbreweries to open in Denmark, Svaneke Bryghus on Bornholm is today widely known for its authentic taste, sustainable production methods and wide range of specialty beers. At the heart of the success are just five ingredients: malt, hops, water, yeast and, most importantly, time. Bornholm is our inspiration. Known for its beautiful landscapes, sunny weather and local delicacies and food producers, the small, rocky island of Bornholm is also the home of one of Denmark’s first microbreweries. Founded by a local beer enthusiast in 2000, Svaneke brewery and restaurant has developed into a successful local enterprise. But the original respect for and connection to the craft are still intact.
In the experienced hands of brew master Jan Paul, Svaneke Bryghus produces around 1.5 million liters of beer a year, including a number of alcoholic free beers and a gluten free beer. Fifty percent of the production is powered by nature with solar panels and the surrounding environment acts as a major source of inspiration in the development of new tastes and products.

Svaneke beers are sold all over Denmark and the in Sweden, Norway, Finland and Canada.
