The Craft Beverage Producers’ Association of Skåne was founded in 2017 by and for small businesses with a passion for beverages, comradery, and the region. The purpose of the association is to both facilitate the members’ operations and to promote the beverage industry in Skåne. We are an industry association made up of approximately 50 members that produce beer, wine, spirits, cider, mead, soft drinks and kombucha. Please give our products a try!
WHAT WE DO
Come and meet our members! We arrange several popular craft beverage events in the region throughout the year.
As an industry association we work for the needs of our members. In collaboration with decision-makers and stakeholders, we work for more fair and uniform regulations on, e.g., alcohol taxes, on-site sales, and on the sampling of alcoholic beverages.
We arrange conferences and workshops on craft beverage production. Our flagship event, Brew North, attracts both members and international participants. This autumn conference is filled with industry exhibitors, inspirational lecturers and workshops, all with the aim to strengthen the sector.
To produce and sell alcoholic beverages entails large responsibility. This is why we strive to reduce our environmental and climate impact and to engage responsibly with the local community.
As an industry association, we have formulated 9 sustainability principles for small alcohol producers, in a participatory approach together with craft breweries, ingredients suppliers and other relevant actors in the regional industry, and in collaboration with SustBeerLab, a living lab initiated by the Centre for Sustainability Studies, at Lund University.
