We opened in 2013 after an internship at Norway's Haand Bryggeriet in 2011 and two years of life change that resulted in a production facility and taproom in Lino Lakes, Minnsota.
The brewery's name was chosen from the epic viking metal album "Hammerheart" by the classic Swedish metal band Bathory. This album combined two sources of endless inspiration for us, metal and mythology.
We have spent six years exploring beers rooted in tradition, honoring friends, family, and other important things in our lives. With over 130 recipes and counting, many rarely seen outside of Scandinavia such as Stjørdalsøl, Finnish-Style Sahti, or a Jul Øl aged in Aquavit barrels. These are things we have committed to and things that give us purpose.
