Kopparbergs Brewery
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Kopparberg's Brewery (Kopparbergs Bryggeri) is a Swedish brewery and cider company based in Bergslagen.

The Brewery
Kopparberg's is the largest beer and cider brewery in the Bergslagen region of Sweden. Now a publicly quoted company, it was originally founded by a group of small brewers. The Kopparberg's factory was built in 1945 and operated at capacity until 1988 when it was taken over by a Swiss brewery. In 1993, the Swiss owners pulled out of the business, leaving the brewery in the possession of a bank. The brewery was reopened in early 1994 by brothers Peter and Dan-Anders Bronsman who have been running the business since.

Introduction to the UK   
Kopparberg's cider was introduced in 2003 to the UK by B O Times1 Limited, after the owner visited Sweden whilst managing the now dissolved band Marlowe. Kopparberg's had previously attempted to launch in partnership with Bulmers but never succeeded in securing a contract.

The Kopparberg's brand is now making headway in the UK and has been nationally available since early 2006.[citation needed] It is marketed and distributed by Cider of Sweden Ltd, a subsidiary of Kopparberg's Brewery, Sweden. Kopparberg Cider is growing in popularity in the UK where it is now stocked by most major UK supermarket and bar groups.[citation needed] Originally launched in Apple and Pear cider variations, Non-Alcoholic Pear Cider and Cider with Mixed Fruit were added in late 2007, followed by Summer and Winter Fruits. A special edition Cherry variety was launched during Wetherspoon's ale festival in 2007 and an Original flavour (different from apple) and an Elderflower & Lime flavour have also since been launched, while, in Spain, a Strawberry flavour has been introduced. Very recently, a Strawberry and Lime flavour was also added to the UK variety.
