Odd Brewing Co. is passionate about combining what we think is the best of two worlds. Our beers are influenced by the elegance and flavour profiles of traditional Belgian ales. The solid Belgian backbone is paired with concepts and ingredients typically coming out of the experimental American craft brew tradition. The result is flavourful and complex yet balanced beers that pair well with food yet highly competent on their own.
Fredrik Johansson Co-Founder
All-rounder, handyman and improviser. He started his beer journey by diving head-first into the dark side, such as Quadrupels and Imperial Stouts, although his first dark beer actually was a Dunkel. In college Fredrik and CO-Founder Johann started exploring different genres of beer. While visiting Johann - at the time being living in Antwerp - both agreed to make reality of their dream to start up a small scale brewery. After a couple of years, they both moved to Gothenburg and into Johanns kitchen which became their new experimental ground for what later developed into ODD BREWING CO.
Johann Hofmann Co-Founder
Belgophile, ideas man and perfectionist. Johann has dreamt of running his own craft-brewing establishment since his first sip of a Duvel back at college together with CO-Founder Fredrik. His passion to beer escalated during his years living 100 steps away from the cult café Kulminator in Antwerp, Belgium. After several recurring trips to seek the roots and creativity of Flemish and Valonian farmhouse breweries he got inspiration and devotion to make modern style belgian ales to work as a sophisticated companion to food. This wise man once said ”It’s not a detour, it’s just another way”.
