“We wanted to focus on the history, food processing, and processing of grains. My family were all grain farmers, so I wanted to use that but in another way than just with flour and baking. Beer is a way to show off the agriculture, but in a newer form,” says Sundby. Sundbytunet brewery and distillery opened up on 11 November 2011 on Sundby’s son’s 11th birthday – the 11th birthday of the eighth generation. It has since continued to grow bigger – but it is still a small brewery compared to others, with their 18 different types of beer in production.
