Even though Nøgne Ø was started to supply southern Norway with quality craft beer, the export market has been essential to the survival of Nøgne Ø. Norway has been a little behind many other countries when it comes to accepting different beer styles, though they are now catching up very, very quickly.
But that means if you live outside of Norway it is most likely that you can find Nøgne Ø in your country.. Below you will find a list of countries where Nøgne Ø is sold. Importers should be able to put you in contact with a retailer or bar/restaurant where you can taste some great craft beer from Nøgne Ø.

Denmark was the first country to which Nøgne Ø was exported, back in 2004. In 2010 Nøgne Ø started a new relationship with Beer Factory to take over distribution of Nøgne Ø in bottles all over Denmark. At the same time Mikkeller, the well-known brewer and good friend of Nøgne Ø, began importing our draft beer to sell along with his great selection of beers. Recently we have sold our beers in Denmark through Premium Beer Import. Please contact these great beer guys to find a place where you can find Nøgne Ø in your area of Denmark.

One of the first importers to actually visit Nøgne Ø in Grimstad came from about as far away on the globe as is possible! Dominic Kelley, proprietor at Hashigo Zake, came all the way from Wellington to visit the brewery. It is a long way for beer to travel to New Zealand, but we are impressed that Dominic has been able to find refrigerated transport for the pallets we have sent to him. We know he is serious about beer. Check out the photos from his “Cult Beer Bar” on his website, looks awesome.
Hashigo Zake sells Nøgne Ø in their “Cult Beer Store” and also sells wholesale. So, if you are a retailer, bar or a craft beer drinker please contact Hashigo Zake to find out how to get Nøgne Ø in your area.
