story

Nils Oscar Brewery is a Swedish microbrewery and spirits company based in Nyköping.The brewery was founded in Stockholm 1996 as Kungsholmens Kvartersbryggeri i Kungsholmen, Stockholm but changed name to Tärnö Bryggeri rather quickly. During 2006, major relocations were conducted and the company got its current name.The beers of Nils Oscar Brewery have often received good reviews from national beer critics. Nils Oscar beers have been awarded several gold medals at the Stockholm Beer Festival during the last years.Nils Oscar backgroundThe brewery takes its name from Nils Oscar.Nils Oscar was born in 1865 in a small village called Brändön in the very Nordic parts of Sweden. This is where the woods grew big and good place for agriculture was offered along the coast and rivers. But times were rough and Nils Oscar’s family led a poor life (he was one of eight brothers and sisters). In 1882 a ticket to America was sent to him. The sender was an emigrant relative who owned a farm in America. So he left for the big country over there. During the long trip (at the time travelling over the Atlantic Ocean was made by boat so one can only imagine), he worked in the kitchen to earn his stay. He had to work at the relative’s farm with no compensation for six months in order to pay his ticket back. He learned the basics of agriculture. Nils Oscar left the farm for new adventures and finally became a tenant.During the 18 years that Nils Oscar stayed in America, not only did he learn to manage agriculture, he studied Business English at the Bryant and Stratton Business College in Chicago, Illinois. A quote from the note, written by the Principal of the English Department says ”to whom it may concern … Never in our history have we had a more earnest, hardworking, energetic student than he has proven him to be. Honest at all times. Never afraid to do his duty”. We could not have expressed it better ourselves.
