In 2019 To Øl is bringing their beer production back to Denmark. The brewery is taking over a former food factory in the western part of Sealand to set up full range brewery, labs, barrel ageing facility with possibilities for wild production, cold storage, canning lines and everything in between.
Since To Øl started brewing back in 2010, they have worked as travelling brewers, brewing beers primarily in Belgium but also at other brewing facilities. In 2019, To Øl will be taking home their production to their very own 26.000 m2 big factory in Svinninge, Denmark. With this To Øl will get full control of all parts and processes and expand the possibilities of what and how they’re brewing.
To Øl is exporting to more than 50 countries and is widely known as a quality-oriented brewery. To Øl does everything from alcohol free beers over hoppy pale ales to strong stouts and was in 2016 awarded the World’s 9th best brewery in RateBeer.
Back in 2016, To Øl opened BRUS; this 750 m2 bar, shop and restaurant with its own brewery. Here at BRUS, To Øl has been experimenting with brewing the most fresh beer possible – the beer is never exposed to daylight and isn’t exposed to unnecessary temperature changes. This is also the beer philosophy, that To Øl will work from at the new factory in Denmark.
“Svinninge is the biggest step in the history of To Øl and by far most ambitious project to date. With Svinninge we will move on from being a travelling brewery to having our very own place, where we can take active part in all elements of brewing, development, storage and logistics. This also means that we can set up cold chains and objectives for, how fresh we’re able to delivery beers to the beer consumers. At the same time we will have plenty of room to set up wild fermentation experiments and barrel ageing facilities, which is something we haven’t been able to fit in at BRUS or other brewing facilities, we’ve been engaged in,” co-owner and director Tore Gynther explains.
