Product Description:

Nøgne Ø (pronounced “nəg-nə ə”, or “nir-gneh err”) is Norway's leading and largest supplier of bottle conditioned ale. The name Nøgne Ø means "naked island", a poetic term used by Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen to describe any of the countless stark, barren outcroppings that are visible in the rough sea off Norway's southern coast. Nøgne Ø's subtitle "The Uncompromising Brewery" is a plain statement of their mission to craft ale of highest quality, personality and individuality. The alchemists realized that they could only create gold from gold – and so does Nøgne Ø. Their gold is Maris Otter malt from the UK; Cascade, Centenneal, Chinook and Columbus hops from the US.

Nøgne Ø has grown from a 300hl production in 2003 to an estimated 2500hl production in 2007, making more than 20 different styles of ales, and exporting more than 70% of total production.

Started by two passionate homebrewers, Nøgne Ø was Norway’s first microbrewery founded solely for creative, artistic brewing. Nøgne Ø insist that to this day there has been no wealth or fortune in their venture, pondering who in their right mind would leave their home each day to work for free in a labour intensive brewery. To their credit, they introduced styles such as Pale Ale, IPA, Imperial Stout, Porter, Barleywine etc to a populace that had never heard of them. In a country where alcohol commercials are prohibited, journalists and foodies soon caught on to Nøgne Ø, and the rest, as they say, is history. Nøgne Ø are now as famous as rock stars.
