Pioneers in their home country of Sweden, Dugges were established by Mikael Dugge Engström back in 2005, initially with a focus on American styles. But a penchant for experimentation has led them down a slightly different path since and they are now best known for their flavour-packed, fruited sours and imperial stouts.
As one of the first craft breweries in Sweden, Dugges have been relied upon to push the boundaries and play a leading role in the growth and development of the country's nascent beer community.
Family is also important to them, as Dugge is actually a family name carried by two generations currently working at the brewery.
Three collaborations have emerged from our friendship with Dugges; our Vic Secret Sour IPA in 2017, followed by Pale Ale Pale Ale Pale Ale and Yummy Rummy later in the same year.
