svaneke beer is organic and brewed in a CO2 neutral process
Being a small and agile craft brewery has its advantages – including when it comes to the green transition. The path from idea to action is rarely long. In 2021, we reached one of the major milestones when all brewing and bottling of Svaneke beer was verified as CO2 neutral. But we won’t stop there. We continue our green efforts with the ambition of ensuring that packaging and raw materials also become CO2 neutral in the longer term.
