Svartön Vehnä (5,5 % ABV) is a dark wheat beer with aromas of cocoa and banana, created to continue the story of this unique island.
In the 18th century a maintenance center was planned on one of the islands that make up Suomenlinna – Länsi-Mustasaari (Väster Svartö in Swedish). A complex including a bakery, distillery and brewery was planned for the northern part of the island. However, what would have been the first industrial brewery in Finland was never built. Only the bakery ever saw daylight. At Suomenlinna Brewery we haven’t forgotten this story, either.
Svartön Vehnä was available in Alko stores and a limited number of restaurants until late 2016.
