Enjoy the beer, learn the story
Mad Swede Brewing Company brews a wide variety of delicious beers for the beer expert and beer-curious alike. With hundreds of unique, historical styles of beer and countless combinations of malts and hops, it’s our belief that you don’t need to add wacky ingredients to have a real flavor adventure.
All our beers are true to style and perfectly balanced, with a tendency towards dryness that makes them ultimately sessionable. Mad Swede will take on any style of beer, but we take inspiration from our own heritage, naming our beers for some of history’s most fascinating Viking figures. The stories behind our beers are often just as interesting as their flavors. Click one of our unique beer names and discover the inspiration behind your favorite beer.
Helhest is the Norse goddess Hel’s ghostly three-legged horse. Even undead horses love oats, so we created an oat based ale to pay tribute to this spectral steed. Behold! The kuyt beer, a 15th century Dutch style with a deliciously fruity and nutty flavor, a silky mouthfeel, and hazy appearance.
GABF (R) 2019 Gold Medal in the American Style Brown Ale category. Naked Sunbather nut brown ale is–well–nutty and smooth with bold roast character. Featuring delicate northwest hops, this earthy ale will satisfy year-round.
Gold medal winner 2021 International Beer Awards. Wee Heavy, malty, caramel, with a smooth dry finish. If you’re not Scottish, this one will make you wish you were!
