On the west coast of Iceland surrounded by low rising mountains, flowing rivers and hot springs lies the farm Stedji, which translates as Anvil, named after the rock formation next to Stedji Brewery and family house. A place of folklore and magic that today is the home of one of the most innovative, exciting and exuberant family brewery in the world.
Stedji beer is not just a beer, its an alchemy of pure genius.
Our brewer is a german profession, Philipp Ewers, who is a magician for a brewer.
Brugghus Steðja is a family company started in 2012. Our brewmaster made first two beers the same year, our lager and the icelandic northern lights beer. Since then we have be releasing alot of new styles. We want our beer to have its own caracter so no two types beers should be simular. Our seasonal beers we want to grap the spirit of each season in the bottle so people can gather around and celebrate and say SKÁL!!
Our labels are designed by professional designer. We decided to make a good connection to our farm. So as the farms name is Steðji (Anvil), the shape of the label is an Anvil. Anvils have been used for centuries and are used by blacksmiths to shape the hot iron. The photo on the label was taken in the year 1942 of the old turf house that were at the farm. Turf houses were very common in the country side of Iceland up to 1950'.
All beers from Steðji is natural product and without any added sugar.
