Micro brewery Stallhagen was established 2004 by a group of local beer enthusiasts. Today the company has over 1600 shareholders. The name Stallhagen is derived from the former royal property where the brewery is located in Grelsby. Stallhagen’s high quality hand made beers have quickly become popular in Åland, Finland and Sweden. Stallhagen produces over 500 000 liters beer/year and is Finland’s fourth largest micro brewery.
Stallhagen’s business idea is to develop and market creative hand-crafted premium beers both in bottle and on tap. Apart from the year-round selection of quality beers the company brings out a varying line of specialty beers and prize-winning seasonal beers.
The saying in beer circles goes: anybody can brew beer but only a few make good beer. With a master’s touch Stallhagen’s brewmaster Mats Ekholm crafts unique beers; perfectly balanced, thoughtfully composed with a pleasing harmony of taste, color and delicate aroma.
Stallhagen produces 12-20 different beers/year, e.g.: Delikat, Honungsöl, Baltic Porter, US Red Ale and Julbock.
Stallhagen has reconstructed one of the world’s oldest beers. In 2010 five bottles of 170 years old beer were salvaged from a 1840s shipwreck in the Åland archipelago. The beers were analyzed with the idea of a re-creation. Stallhagen presents – Historic Beer 1842 – the first re-created beer in replicated hand-blown glass bottles.
In the brewery building is also PubStallhagen, that serves food, arranges brewery tours and beer tastings.
