About Omnipollo

Omnipollo is a brewery founded by brewer Henok Fentie and artist Karl Grandin in 2010 with a shared vision of changing the perception of beer — forever.

Omnipollo brews a plethora of styles to explore what beer has and can become. As a joint and equal partnership between a brewer and a graphic artist their creative process has come to resemble the work shop of other pop cultural expressions such as music.

Omnipollo beers are often a collaborative effort and we brew at breweries in all corners of the world. This approach means we get to stay curious, grounded and tuned in. Much like that good house guest.  In 2020 they opened our very own brewery and tap room in a deconsecrated church in Stockholm.

2023 was all about the church and year and collaborations. Amongst other Omnipollo worked with NÄRKE KULTURBRYGGERI, The Veil, Horus, Angry Chair, Monkish, Trillium, Other Half, Brujos, North Park, Fidens, Equilibrium, Vitamin Sea, Side Project, Phase Three, Troon, Weldwerks, Green Cheek, Mortalis, Smooj, Alesmith, Mahrs, Hill Farmstead, Root + Branch and many many more.
