(Pripps AB)

Founded in 1828 by Johan Albrecht Pripps, this is one of the major Swedish beer brewing companies. Johan Albrecht started out with only a small private brewery at Stampen in the outskirts of Gothenburg. However, due to his very strong businessman character, the brewery quickly grew and in 1865,the same year as he died, it became a corporation.

Today, Pripps is brewing beer of all sorts. Their most popular beer since long has been Pripps Blå, famous amongst Swedes because of its fresh and crisp character and inexpensiveness.
