Enjoy a guided tour of "Vesle Kinn" Brewery, including a tasting board with three samples of beer.
Vesle Kinn is Kinn brewery's new bar just opened at the centre of Strandga- ta street. The bar has its own tiny brewery in the same premises, which they use to try out new ingredients and recipes and store their products in French oak barrels. You can visit Vesle Kinn during the summer for guided tours and tasting sessions. You can also buy food in the bar after the guided tour.
About Kinn Brewery
Kinn Brewery was established in 2009 in Florø, a small town situated by the fjords on the west coast of Norway. The pure water from the mountains surrounding the town is the perfect base for the beers.
The brewmaster and founder of Kinn Brewery, Espen Lothe, started brewing in his own home, but a growing interest in the craftsmanship led to a full-fledged brewery where open fermentation vats were brought in and the slogan “doing it the old-fashioned way” was put to work. The brewmaster does not interfere with the natural process, meaning that there are no pasteurisation and filtration involved.
Both English and Belgian type beers are brewed at Kinn, together with seasonal brews. The products are available as both draft and bottle beers. The unique labelling depicts the Norwegian lexicographer and poet Ivar Aasen, and the names of the beers are typical of the dialects spoken in the fjordlands of Norway. The commitment to tradition, craftsmanship and fine taste are the qualities that make Kinn Brewery beers, ales and stouts attractive and unique.
