wild beers, barrel fermented beers, wild spirits and kimchi - that's brekeriet
Brekeriet tells the story of the three brothers Ek; Fredrik, Christian and André. With different backgrounds in business and food engineering we decided to team up and start a beer import firm in the spring of 2010. Our future goal was set from the start – to start a brewery of our own. The dream came true in the fall of 2012 when our first batch was brewed in Djurslöv outside of Malmö.
In the spring of 2015 we started to search for larger facilities to expand the brewery and in September the same year we brewed our first 2000L batch with a brand new brewing equipment in newly renovated facilities in Landskrona.
In March 2017 we hired our first “step brother” to the Ek family, Amadeus. With a background as a chef and as a brewer, he now works as a brewer and product developer at Brekeriet.
Our niche is, as one of few breweries in Scandinavia, to ferment our beers with nothing but wild yeast and bacteria. To further enhance the taste experience, we also secondary ferment many of our beers with berries, fruit or whatever we find interesting to try.
In the spring of 2020 we started to produce kimchi under the brand Brekeriet Flora. Since Kimchi is fermented with lactic acid bacteria it follows the same path as all Brekeriet products – with the microorganisms in focus.
We also distill our wild fermented beers under the brand Brekeriet Distillery. The ”wild” flavors shines through in the spirits, giving it an extra dimension. The innovation and playfulness plays a huge roll even here, where only the sky is the limit.
Brekeriet beers are complex, rustic and often tart farmhouse ales with lots of flavors. Our regular beers are mostly kettle sours coming in 330mL bottles. They’re all fermented with wild yeast which gives the beer its unique characteristics and the beers are often made even tastier with added fruits or berries in the secondary fermentation.
In the Vild series you find beers that are fermented with mixed bacteria cultures in oak barrels for at least a year. They all come in 375mL bottles with a wine cork and a cap. The label design also differs a lot from our core beers with its characteristic hand on the label.
…nothing but natural ingredients and never any artificial nor natural flavorings…
Many of our beers are organic and most of them, except the ones including honey, are vegan.
If you’re looking for a gluten-free beer you should try Pink Passion, Ruby Gems or Slice & Dice. Every batch is lab tested to ensure that the gluten level is below 20ppm in the beer.
All three of them are available through Systembolaget.
