Beer and breweries

Publish date: 18 June 2021

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Swedish government has restricted the sale of alcohol in bars and restaurants. Serving alcohol is prohibited after 10 pm (22:00) All restaurants and bars must close at 10.30 pm (22.30). This might lead to some restaurants and bars not opening at all.

Interest in beer has never been greater in Stockholm. Several new microbreweries have opened in recent years, and star restaurants are now including quality craft beer in their beverage pairings or developing their own brews that are especially suited to their food.
