Trøndelag Food Festival
Trondheim Brewery Festival
Looking for a food manufacturer or product? Here you can find it.
For Trondheim Brewery Festival in August 2023 we gathered 30 breweries from near and afar, bringing flavors of craft beer, mead and cider.
There was a plentiful selection of breweries from the region of Trøndelag and the 'mid-section' of Norway. We also had a great selection of Norwegian breweries, from Kristiansand in the south to Tromsø in the north. Check also out the three international breweries from England and Germany.
Gulating was the non-alcoholic bar with a variety of flavorful alcohol-free craft beers as well as other fermented and crafted beverages.
Because Trondheim Brewery Festival is a festival dedicated to the art and craft of brewing you are always invited to talk to the brewers behind the bar. The brewers themselves are at the tap, and have a wealth of knowledge and craft beer inspirations they'd love to share with you. And so maybe you'll learn something new, of beer and brew and new innovations and old traditions.
