In 2002 Mikael Dugge Engström, the Founder, CEO and Brew Master of Dugges Bryggeri, had a meeting with an Englishman. What was said at the meeting has long since been forgotten. What was said at the following pub visit is why we have the fantastic Dugges Brewery today. With all the energy of a man possessed Mikael started studying Swedish alcohol legislation, read up on everything and anything he could find on brewing beer and going on visits to anyone who would have him, getting tips and making friends. In 2005 Dugges opened its doors and has gone from strength to strength. One of the first beers they ever brewed was Avenyn Ale, an American Pale Ale that they still produce to this day. We love Dugges, they make some epic dessert stouts such as Cocoa Cocoa, and great IPAs.
