Hand-made beer from the Åland Islands

Between Finland and Sweden lays an archipelago called the Åland Islands. Being part of Finland the roughly 28.000 inhabitants of this autonomous group of islands speak Swedish instead of Finnish. For main land Finns the people of Åland appear somewhat strange and alien. 

If you don’t plan on visiting those remote islands in the middle of the Baltic Sea in the near future there is still a way to get a taste of Åland though. The micro brewery Stallhagen produces some really nice bear that is exported to Sweden and Finland. If you get the chance you should try it. The beer from this small traditional brewery is hand-made as they say and fits perfectly with some nice food.
