Nøgne Ø

nogne o beer


The beer market is a bit weird in Norway. In the early 20th century home brewing was outlawed (except for personal use), meaning that commercial brewing has been dominated for decades by just a few major breweries. Also, beers above 4.75% abv are only available from licensed premises or from state-run liquor stores, leading to foreign breweries lowering the alcohol content of their Norway-bound offerings. Despite this, the country has a long history of home-brewing, with most traditional farms having a separate brewhouse as part of the estate. Nøgne Ø, started by two home brewers in 2002, is one of the few craft breweries to come out of Norway. Their beers are more complex and full-bodied than the vast majority of other Norwegian brews, and they pride themselves on the diversity of their range. The fact that they make a 7% Porter in a country where this can only be sold through certain bottle shops says it all really, although they do export about 70% of their production. We don’t mind, as long as they keep sending it over here!

"Very slight delay with the delivery, but they contacted me to apologise and gave me a \u00a35 voucher towards my next purchase. Beers arrived well packaged, and they have a great selection. Overall, highly recommended."
"Husband was really chuffed to receive this case of beer on Valentine's Day. A great selection. I think a pamphlet explaining the heritage of the beers, ingredients etc would be a nice touch. I also think a nicer box or bag would be a nice for gifts rather than just a cardboard box."
"What a joke!!! Can't believe I even got an email to write a review. Order didn't arrive. Had to telephone FIVE times to find out what was happening. In the end requested my money back. Will never ever use again "
