About Einstök

Country of origin: Iceland

Established: 2010

Einstök are a range of craft beers which are brewed at a brewery located just 60 miles south of the Arctic Circle in the fishing port of Akureyri, Iceland.  Here, water flows from rain and prehistoric glaciers down the Hlíðarfjall Mountain through lava fields, delivering the purest water on earth and the perfect foundation for brewing deliciously refreshing handcrafted ales. Here, Baldur Karason, the first Icelander in fifty years to train at the prestigious brewing program at Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh, resides as Brewmaster. His advanced knowledge and creativity combine to make him the ideal head brewer for Einstök, where he combines the finest ingredients to deliver craft beer that is distinct and flavourful, yet deliciously refreshing and drinkable.

Drink. Conquer. Repeat

This is the battle cry for modern Vikings and it calls them to the great adventure that lies ahead.

DRINK. Of course, the drink of choice is one of the fine ales crafted by Einstök, but, while we seek to gulp every last drop of life, we savour our beer and drink it in moderation, respecting not only the great skill with which it was made, but also our fellow Vikings and our responsibilities as citizens of this earth.

CONQUER. The world is a place of discovery and adventure and the modern Viking seeks to experience as much as possible. But, when we conquer new lands and new people, it is not with the goal of pillaging them, but rather to leave them better than we found them.

REPEAT. When it gets this good, you can’t help but do it over and over. We are talking here, of course, about repeating the thrill of adventure and about continually seeking new experiences. And, while you will likely be tempted to repeat the refreshingly drinkable experience that comes with Einstök ales, please do so responsibly.
