The secret to Scandi cool is now available in a can. A beer can to be more precise. Fagerhult, dubbed “the stubbornly Swedish beer”, has arrived just in time for summer!
Part of the Kopparberg family and made in the same small town brewery as its cider sibling, Fagerhult is deeply rooted in Sweden’s history after originally being brewed to satisfy the thirst of Swedish Elk hunters returning from the hunt.
Fagerhult say this beer pulls no punches. They’re calling it a craft beer with none of the frills. It’s made with the finest barley, malt, yeast, hops and water and packaged in a fuss free, stubby gold and black can emblazoned with an elk head.
Jodie Alliss, Brand Manager at Kopparberg says: “For too long Fagerhult has been enjoyed by the Swedes alone so we’re bringing it to the UK. Stubbornly delivering on style and taste every time, it will appeal to beer lovers who want a quality ‘no frills’ brew. Fagerhult also promises to diversify the world beer scene in the UK – we all know and love craft beer from the US and the UK – now it’s time for the Swedes to enter the fray.”
It’s said to have a fresh and clean malty taste and encouragingly has an ABV of 4.8%. So it’s not weak by any means. Fagerhult was debuted on Vine with a six second clip that depicts the ethos and appeal of the Swedish brew. From what we’re getting, they’re going for aggressive! You can check out the Vine here.
