The year was 2012, and Andreas Myrvold, CEO of Bådin, had previously discovered craft beer on a few occasions throughout his studies in Grimstad in southern Norway. “I was invited to a beer tasting at Nøgne Ø, and that’s where I discovered that beer can be so much more interesting than the lager we’re used to,” he says. “Coming home to Bodø for the Easter break, I met a friend I’d previously lived with who told me that his colleague was brewing beer and that he was going to give it a try himself. So, I threw myself into it as well, and we quickly made a homemade kit to start brewing ourselves.”
