Poppels Bryggeri in Jonsered’s Factories is a small, local brewery that has managed to become Sweden's largest organic brewery with its great craftsmanship. You can book a tour of the brewery, taste the beer and enjoy outstanding combinations of food and beer in the brewery’s traditional mill environment, which is only 10 minutes from Gothenburg centre.
The Alingsås commuter train goes from Gothenburg Central Station twice every hour to Jonsered’s Factories. From there it is only a five-minute walk before you reach the "Beerstination" - Poppels craft brewery. The river Säveån races noisily outside the old mill and Poppel’s local brew comes frothing out of the taps in the brewery.

Poppels is Sweden’s largest organic brewery as well as the second largest craft brewery. Take a guided tour of the brewery and taste some of the beers that Poppels serves in their tasting sessions. Poppels Klunk is the name of the restaurant and brewing pub next door to the brewery. Well-chosen combinations of food and beer are served here and they are very popular, so book a table well in advance!
