I’ve chatted a bit on recent posts regarding the German beer scene as some brewers look on the U.S. creativity with a bit of green envy. They won’t have nearly as far to look shortly as U.S. craft brewers continue to invade Europe with the news of Brooklyn Brewery opening a location in Stockholm.

I was delighted and somewhat amused to note the presence of American craft beer on my last visit to Sweden back in 2007, including Michigan brews Bells and New Holland, at a little pub near my hotel, so I’m sure Brooklyn will find a warm reception abroad.

Sam Adams and others have made it a point to enter into the German market and Brooklyn has previously collaborated with Schneider, one of Bavaria’s well known weissbier brewers.

Will others be far behind?
