Nils Oscar’s grandson opened the Nils Oscar microbrewery in Stockholm in 1996, experimenting with grain grown on the family farm nearby. The brewery quickly became a staple for quality Swedish craft beer and, after years of success, relocated and expanded. Still to this day, the second generation of the family focuses on producing traditional beer but with a modern twist.
Nils Oscar Sundberg was born in a small village in Sweden, in 1865. A pioneer in many respects, Nils Oscar personifies all the values that the brand stands for - honest, energetic, modern, respectful of nature, firmly grounded, a sense of craftsmanship and a little mischief of course. Each bottle is branded with Nils Oscar’s portrait as a seal of approval and to remind them to live up to his dedication to quality, honesty and forward-thinking…and they will continue to do this one bottle at a time.
Their award-winning beers are hot on everyone’s radar and have already created numerous headlines, like “Heavenly Beer from Sweden”. This may be partly due to their best seller, Nils Oscar God Lager, which translates to Tasty Lager’ in Swedish.
