About the brewery

In 1856, Erich Christian Dahl founded E.C. Dahls Brewery ( “E.C. Dahls Bryggeri” in Norwegian) in Trondheim. We launched our first beer the next year – a Bayer (Munchener Dunkel) crafted by brewmaster Kristoffer Olsen.

Erich Christian was a key player in the city’s business community. He distinguished himself as the Danish consul. He served as a representative in the city council for 31 years and on the board of Trøndelag Teater for 26 years. He was one of the first to pay sick pay to his employees and established the foundation E.C. Dahls Stiftelse for women giving birth in the city.

E.C. Dahls Bryggeri soon became the largest brewery in the region. In 1966 the brewery merged with Aktiebryggeriet at Lademoen, where we are still located today. Various beer styles such as export, Bock, bjor and Bayer have been brewed over the years, and Lysholmer, the greatest beer success in Norwegian history, made its appearance in 1983. We still brew the renowned Dahls Pils. The yeast in a Dahls Pils can be traced back over 70 years.

From the autumn of 2016, we will once again be serving innovative brews. Our master brewer, Wolfgang Lindell, has teamed up with Brooklyn Brewery to create a new range of beer combining the best of our brewing traditions with Brooklyn’s inovative ideas. The first three have been named Lamo Wit, Pepra Saison and Bolt IPA.

We love visitors! Drop by or book a tour – eat in the restaurant or just savour one of the many beer styles we offer in the pub.
