To Øl is a young Danish craft beer brewery founded in 2010. When To Øl was founded, we were sick of hundred years old breweries claiming territory only due to old age – instead, we wanted to give the beer some youth. At To Øl, we do contemporary beers. We brew a wide range of potent, provocative, fresh, and floral beers; hoppy, balanced, and complex beers both light, dark, strong, and simple. We brew the beers we want to drink ourselves and work to do the best beers in the world. We never compromise on taste and balance and keep pushing the boundaries of great beer-crafting. Back in 2005 the founders of To Øl, Tore Gynther, and Tobias Emil Jensen were young guns studying at a direct democracy-based high school in Nørrebro, Copenhagen – Det Fri Gymnasium. They pirated the school kitchen facilities during closing hours and began turning them into a brewing lab. Malts were mashed, hop leaves boiled, yeast fermented, and bubbled within lab flasks. In short: the hunt for potent quality beers had begun. To Øl released the first commercial beer in 2010 and the To Øl brewery was founded. To Øl entered Ratebeer’s list of Top 100 best breweries in the world in 2012 – and in 2014 To Øl was awarded the world’s 9th best brewery. Many crazy things have happened since that first release, but even high-school sweethearts drift apart, and at the beginning of 2017 Tobias Emil Jensen stepped out of To Øl to work on other projects.
