Back in 2005 the original founders of To Øl, Tore Gynther and Tobias Emil Jensen, were young guns studying at a direct democracy based high school in Nørrebro, Copenhagen – Det Fri Gymnasium. They pirated the school kitchen facilities during closing hours and began turning it into a brewing lab. Malts were mashed, hop leaves boiled, yeast fermented and bubbled within lab flasks. In short: the hunt for potent quality beers had begun. To Øl released the first commercial beer in 2010 and the brewery was founded. Many crazy, funny, funky and challenging things have happened since that first release, but even high-school sweethearts drift apart, and in the beginning of 2017 Tobias Emil Jensen stepped out of To Øl to work on other projects.
We are happy, hoppy and proud to have fans, importers, beer serious bars and restaurants and not to forget solid craft beer geeks out and about in the whole wide world. Today we’re exporting to more than 40 different countries worldwide.
