Hansa Borg Bryggerier is Norway's second largest brewery.

History[edit]

Hansa Borg Bryggerier was founded in 1997, after a merger between Hansa Bryggeri and Borg Bryggerier. The company is controlled by the Egenæss family (75% ownership), who owned Borg since 1905 until the merger in 1997. Other principal owners are the Swedish-based Spendrups Bryggeri AB and Danish-based Royal Unibrew.[1]

The brewery is Norway's second largest manufacturing and marketing of beer and mineral water from plants located in Bergen, Sarpsborg, Kristiansand[1] and Olden, Norway. Beer brands include Hansa, Waldemars, Borg and CB, as well as Heineken and Clausthaler under license.

In 1999, Hansa Borg acquired Christianssands Bryggeri (CB). This meant that Hansa Borg has nationwide distribution of all its three main brands of beer, as well as controlling the local markets in Hordaland, Østfold, and Southern Norway. In 2005, Hansa Borg acquired Olden Brevatn, a company that produces drinking water from a glacier in Olden.
