Helsingborg’s Brewery was founded by bank manager S.H Hafström in 1850. It was one of three breweries in Sweden to start making bottom-fermenting beers, and the company soon developed into a large brewery with many types of beers. The very first beer was of Bavarian type.
The company grounds had a brook and a small pond. During the winter when the water froze, the ice was used to keep the brewery’s wort chilled. For a while, beer was stored in the cellar of the medieval tower of Kärnan in Helsingborg. Even today one can see traces of the old entrance in the building’s eastern wall.
