With Swedish craft drinks in the glass and a view out over the surrounding boats and the Swedish summer, Spritmuseum’s pier Brygga & Berså offers a great place to spend a summer evening. Located in-between a shipwreck and an amusement park, their main selling-point is their dedication to promoting Swedish drink producers – everything from beer to cider and wine, gin and whisky originating from the whole country, from far up north to the very south. With 750 producers Sweden has rarely been as well-supplied as it is today.
But not only do they stock a lot of these interesting craft labels, they have also invited some of them to host nights at the pier. The idea is of course to provide an opportunity to meet the producers and to learn of their work and products, and perhaps especially, to taste it. Spritmuseum’s restaurant also presents a summer menu very well suited to both the Swedish summer and the Swedish drinks on offer. Chef and restaurant manager Petter Nilsson explains their focus on the Swedish fare. “We think it’s important to shed light on what’s going on in the Swedish drinks trade. We have, through the museum, a fairly good scope for the new exciting producers and want to provide a stage for them,” he says.
