Brewery

Tornion Panimo is an artisanal brewery still operating in the same place the brewery was built as far back as in 1873. Underneath our brewery lie the original, 140-year-old cellar vaults that will soon begin their new life as whiskey cellars. You can read more about our whiskeys and other spirits under Distillery.

As recently as in 2010, Lapin Kulta was churned out here at the annual capacity of over 200 million liters. After the large-scale industry stood aside, we returned the legendary brewery to its roots as an artisanal brewery. We brew our beer with two machineries of different sizes. The boil size of the smaller artisanal equipment is 1,000 liters and the annual capacity ca. 200,000 liters. In March of 2017, we put larger equipment made of authentic Tornio steel into operation, increasing our annual production capacity close to 2.5 million liters. 

We must keep growing so that more people yet can enjoy genuine Lappish beer. Nevertheless, after once seeing what it is to be large-scale, we understand that beer is at its best when it’s brewed by ordinary people with extra-ordinary hearts. So we’ll remain jovial Lappish artisans in future, too. 

All our products and recipes are developed in the laboratory of our parent company, Sangen, where the real propeller heads of science and the art of drinking busy themselves. So it’s guaranteed that our quality has been tested over and over, and all sorts of new things are experimented on all the time. You can read more about Sangen here www.sangen.fi

The next time you come across our stately tower logo, go ahead, grab one and enjoy. If you travel through Lapland, we recommend a stop at our brewery. We organize brewery tours and beer tastings for groups on demand.
