The Nordic Beer Garden

Beer has a long, rich, and important tradition in the Nordic countries.  From the beer of the Vikings to modern day Nordic concoctions, brewers have used a rich diversity of plants to create distinctive, delicious beverages unique to this part of the world.

 This garden highlights many of the historic as well as modern plants used by Nordic brewers in beer recipes. We invite you to explore the variety of plants – noting their shape, colour, and smells – and learn more about what beer is and how recipes and flavours have changed over time.

Whether you’re a beer connoisseur or just curious about the world of beer, welcome to this living and constantly evolving exhibition.

In collaboration with the Carlsberg Laboratory.
