A bottle of Svagdricka

Svagdricka, literally weak drink in Swedish, is a form of sweet, low-alcohol small beer (less than 2.25% ABV). In the early 20th century, there were local producers of svagdricka all over Sweden, but in recent decades its popularity has dwindled. There are only a few manufacturers left and their production volumes display great seasonal fluctuation with peaks around Christmas and Easter when it is consumed with traditional Swedish food.
