Breweries

There are two breweries on Svalbard, one in Barentsburg and one in Longyearbyen. These two are the world’s northernmost breweries, and highly recommended for a visit!

At the Svalbard Brewery in Longyearbyen you can join a tour, and learn more about how the impossible became possible. Listen to the fascinating story about a former pilot and miner, who came up with a crazy idea about establishing a beer brewery in the high arctic.  After more than five years of hard work and patience, the brewery became a reality. In August 2015, the first freshly brewed Svalbard beer was served. Beer tasting is naturally a part of the guided tour.

The brewery in Barentsburg was established in 2014, however it wasn’t until 2016 that real, strong beer could be produced and served there. Today, there are  three types of beer produced in Barentsburg, brewed with ingredients from Belgium and water from Stemmevatnet. Come in for a beer tasting, and try some tasty, Russian food while you’re there.
