We arrange conferences and workshops on craft beverage production. Our flagship event, Brew North, attracts both members and international participants. This autumn conference is filled with industry exhibitors, inspirational lecturers and workshops, all with the aim to strengthen the sector.

OUR MEMBERS

 
 

To produce and sell alcoholic beverages entails large responsibility. This is why we strive to reduce our environmental and climate impact and to engage responsibly with the local community.

As an industry association, we have formulated 9 sustainability principles for small alcohol producers, in a participatory approach together with craft breweries, ingredients suppliers and other relevant actors in the regional industry, and in collaboration with SustBeerLab, a living lab initiated by the Centre for Sustainability Studies, at Lund University.
