History[edit]

Nøgne Ø was founded in January 2002 by Gunnar Wiig and Kjetil Jikiun. The brewery name, Nøgne Ø, is old Danish for "Naked Isle". It was selected from a 19th-century Norwegian poem called Terje Vigen by Henrik Ibsen.

The brewery has grown from a 300 hl production in 2003 to an estimated 20000 hl production in 2015. They make more than 30 different styles of ales, and have an export to more than 40 markets. On November 25, 2013 Hansa Borg Bryggerier acquired a majority share in Nøgne Ø. This enabled them to export their beer to more countries.
