Dryckesbröder is the story of the brothers Jens and Ulf Spendrup and the bankrupt brewery they inherited from their father in 1976. The board as well as the auditor had resigned and there was a guarantee commitment of SEK 30 million for the dilapidated Grängesbergs Bryggeri AB. The brothers were then 32 and 30 years old and were not at all ready to shoulder the role of brewer’s – they thought. Over the next 40 years, they would transform the local brewery into one of the country’s largest and on the way build a net worth of several hundreds of millions SEK.
