Born out of an exciting social hostel, restaurant and bar situated in a former biscuit factory in Reykjavík, Kex have quickly built a strong name for characterful beers brewed in the spirit of nonconformity and a desire to create unique experiences.
Beer was prohibited in Iceland until 1989, so the country has a lot of catching up to do! Drawing on his background in food, Kex co-founder and brewer Hinrik Carl Ellertsson has quickly made up for lost time by brewing a varied array of styles and working on eye-catching collaborations with the likes of Other Half, Collective Arts, and Cycle Brewing.
