Inspired by what they believe is beer’s recent renaissance, Dugges is a Swedish brewery with a penchant for experimentation and an emphasis on engineering exceptional beers.
With an ever-watchful eye on quality, Mikael Dugges Engström, who began the brewery in 2005, is meticulous in the selection of ingredients, and the prudence is palpable in Dugges’ finished products.
They pride themselves on their passion for brewing and the line of beers that has evolved since their inception includes some serious beer geek favorites like Idjit and 1/2 Idjit!, an imperial stout and imperial porter, respectively, each of which are consistently highly rated on beer lover’s favorite sites.
And while they may be rigorously discerning where their craft is concerned, they make sure that there’s a little levity when it comes labeling time. With names like Hiphiphooray, and Never Mind the Bollox, these beers are memorable not only for their excellence, but for their monikers.
