Theodor Schiøtz Brewing Company
OLD BREWERY TRADITIONS WITH OLD LOOKS, BUT NEW VISIONS
Theodor Schiøtz Brewing Company – our small craft beer brewery – is based on more than 150 years of brewery traditions. It all started with Theodor Schiøtz. He has inspired us to be curious as to making beer. He explored new avenues and we insist to do the same.
We are proud to be situated in the historical Albani buildings in Odense that have been a platform for brewing beer for more than a century.
PART OF OUR HISTORY
Pharmacist, lab assistant, voluntary marksman, sailor, rebel, botanist and not least brewer and a bit of an anarchist. Theodor Schiøtz was a man of many faces and talents.
OUR HOME IS OUR BASE, BUT THE WHOLE WORLD IS OUR PLAYGROUND
Our city is developing rapidly, inspiring us to make beer.
We want to brew beer that is challenging and relevant, not just to the people of our city, but people all over the country - maybe even all over the world. We do it our way, but find inspiration in our surroundings.
RESPECT FOR HERITAGE
OUR HERITAGE IS IMPORTANT. BUT WE WANT TO CHALLENGE IT
We incorporate our background, where we come from and what has shaped us. Everything that has resulted in the creation of Theodor Schiøtz Brewing Company. However, we are aware that we need something more than our heritage.
TO EVOLVE, WE NEED TO CHALLENGE OURSELVES AND OUR SURROUNDINGS
We hugely respect the historic legacy of the old brewery. It is part of our DNA, but we are not afraid to break with tradition and move forward.
TASTE AND EXPERIENCE
History and DNA are one thing. The integrity that comes with it is another. With our constant curiosity, adventurous spirit and the belief that we do things differently and better, we try to create new taste experiences every day. Mostly because we simply can’t help ourselves.
We really hope that people can see and taste that we go that extra mile.
THE BREWING PROCESS AND PHILOSOPHICAL THOUGHTS
IT’S NOT THAT DIFFICULT TO BREW BEER
But brewing really good beer takes a bit more. First and foremost, it requires preparation and good ingredients. It further requires passion and curiosity, and last but not least proper craftsmanship.
The brewing process itself is pretty scientific, but we actually believe that intuition is the key. Intuition as a result of knowledge and experience, but also of experiments and the courage to make occasional mistakes.
WHEN TASTING FOR THE TWENTIETH TIME
... And knowing that we finally got it right! The feeling is indescribable, and the feeling of having created something that is ready to meet the world, makes us incredibly proud. I don’t think we ever get tired of the emotions connected to brewing.
– Jesper Larsen, Brand Manager & Beer Nerd
Our first brew series, the Anarkist series, includes brews filled with the passion and creativity of the brew masters to create a series of beers that challenge the expected.
The idea behind the Anarkist series is to break completely with conventions. It is a series of beers, born from a sense for detail. We have been through the bits and bobs of brewing beer but also of the visual expression, which is significantly different than anything we have ever created.
EXPECTATIONS ARE HIGH - MAINLY OUR OWN
We rest on 150 years of brewing traditions, but we are only just getting started. Theodor Schiøtz Brewing Company was founded to carry on the proud traditions for many years to come.
Please, have high expectations for us. We know that we do. And we look forward to you joining us on the journey.
