In 2010, Stockholm Brewing Co.’s journey began with two childhood friends, wanting to drink fresh, local and organic beer. Niklas Jakobson, Tomas Hallgren and Lenkel started to home-brew at every available opportunity. Niklas was running a wine importing business, specializing in natural wines, and this influenced the desire for using organic products. The ambition for brewing beer grew stronger and pretty soon they decided to open a small brewery. In the end of 2012, after a brief stay at Grev Turegatan, they found the perfect place in an old paper bag factory in a garage in Södermalm.
