Grimstad's uncompromising brewery
Nøgne Ø is Norway's leading and largest supplier of craft beer and the first and only producer of sake in Europe.
The name Nøgne Ø means "naked island", a poetic term used by Henrik Ibsen to describe any of the countless stark, barren outcroppings that are visible in the rough sea off Norway's southern coast. It also gives a symbolic picture of what the two Norwegian home brewers Gunnar Wiig and Kjetil Jikiun did early 2002, when they decided to found a new brewery. Their urge to share their passion of good beer was unbearable. Their vision was to bring diversity and innovation into commercial brewing of real ale. The result – Nøgne Ø.
