We also have two international breweries. Altogether you have the opportunity to sample over 300 kinds of brew! Here you'll find any style of beer and variety of hand-crafted beer you can imagine, many with locally grown and foraged ingredients and in traditional and creative forms. There are also other types of brew; you'll find cider made from apples and fruit harvested from Norwegian orchards on the west coast, as well as mead, even sparkling mead. There is also the brew of coffee, presenting local coffee roasting companies.

Trondheim Brewery Festival is put on by Oi! Trøndersk Mat og Drikke, a non-profit and stock-based company working to create more visibility, revenue and celebration of local producers and brewers in the Trøndelag region.

The festival was held for the first time in 2013, and has evolved into becoming a popular arena for brewing skills, showcasing the best of craft brew from the region and the country as a whole.

As we go for quality above quantity, we have no ambitions of becoming the largest brewing festival there is. But a lot of people think we are the best craft brew festival, and that's something we continue to work for!
