250 years of beer

Brewing has been an influential part of the history of Suomenlinna for over two centuries. When soldiers of the Swedish army arrived to build the fortress in the 18th century, they brought barrels of beer with them since beer was a part of their everyday diet. Suomenlinna grew into a lively town where brewing and restaurant business thrived. In continuation of this fine tradition, Suomenlinna Brewery was established in 1995.
