Rune Kongsro / Hurtigruten

4H Lofotpils Brewery

Lofotpils is Lofoten´s first and only craft brewery and is known for making beers with distinct flavours sourced from Lofoten’s raw and remarkably beautiful nature. The excursion begins when a local Hurtigruten supplier meets us at the pier and leads us on a two-minute walk to the brewery. The guided tour leads us around the only craft brewery in Lofoten, where we learn all about the beer-making process, the history of Lofotpils, and how special ingredients from the land and sea combined with Lofoten´s pristine fresh water made it possible to start the brewery and make beer with “a taste of pure nature”. The tour ends with a beer tasting, poured straight from the fermentation tank, as fresh as a beer can be.
