Sweden is a hot bed of brewing. With over 300+ brands (and more popping up everyday) Sweden is really making a case for itself as one of the ‘go-to’ beer countries in Europe. We are proud to showcase this amazing country in conjunction with the Swedish Canadian Chamber of Commerce and funded by Government of Ontario. We are so excited about featuring all things Sweden that we just released this offer: Save $5 off GA tickets with the promo code SWEDE
Here are some reasons why Sweden is so amazing:
Swedish people take their Fika seriously! Google it! In fact, the country’s Youtube channel even has a Fika video series. Fika is loosely translated ‘to have coffee’. It’s basically a break in the day that people take some down time and enjoy a coffee and treat. We like this idea, but we like it waaaaaay more with beer! A Beer Fika, if you will. Come and have a beer break at TFOB.
Gotland or Gotlands?
The island of Gotland is where half of Stockholm goes during the summer. It’s an island which makes it pretty hard to bring the whole thing here… but Gotlands – the brewers from Gotland who have been brewing since 1995 – can be moved! They will be at #TFOB2016 and they’ll be bringing some tasty brews with them. See who is coming HERE.
Twenty Eight Brands Of Swedish Beer
In addition to Gotlands, we will have 5 other brewers attending our event. We will have – in total – 28 brands of Swedish Beer, inside the Sample Sweden Pavilion. See who HERE.
Chef Peter J Skogstrom and Chef Roland Persson will be showcasing their talents inside the Sample Sweden Pavilion and the Club House La Grille Grilling Tent. Learn more about the chefs HERE.
Get a taste at Bier Markt
Toronto beer enthusiasts will have their first taste of Sample Sweden, available at all Bier Markt locations within the GTA, in advance of Toronto’s Festival of Beer. The restaurant will feature Leon by Omnipollo, a Belgian Pale Ale that is assertively hopped and fermented dry using champagne yeast, on tap from July 11 to July 24.
Bier Markt will also hold a promotion on food as well! The offer includes one ticket to Toronto’s Festival of Beer on the sold out date of Saturday, July 23, with the purchase of both a $15 Swedish dish and a Leon. The bundled offer is $50 + HST and is available until supplies last.
The Öresund bridge connecting Sweden with Denmark ends in a rather dramatic way – from over water to under water. How incredible is that? Can you just image how tasty their beer is if their bridges are this awesome? That’s a bit of a stretch, but this bridge tho!
We are proud to partner with some great Swedish companies to bring this to life, including Ikea Canada and Volvo Car Canada LTD.
