The Brewers Association (BA) invites your brewery to participate in the 2018 Stockholm Beer and Whisky Festival, one of Europe’s largest trade/consumer shows. All beers featured at the event through the BA will also be submitted to the Festival’s international beer competition.

The show runs from September 27-29 and again from October 4-6. This will be the BA’s fifteenth appearance at the festival. Previous visits have resulted in new distribution for U.S. craft beers in Sweden’s retail monopoly, the local on-premise sector, and elsewhere in Scandinavia.
