Export Sales Coordinator

«LERVIG is an independently owned and operated craft brewery located in Stavanger, Norway. We produce a wide range of beers from easy drinking pilsners and pale ales to bold and complex barrel-aged stouts, barley wines, and sours.

Our goal is to brew the best beers in the world and to do that we stick to our beliefs and brew the beers that we love to drink ourselves. We pride ourselves as a brewery that never sacrifices quality for economics and we’re constantly working outside of our comfort zone. We love to travel the globe and be inspired by tasting new things and collaborating with world-class brewers. We’re a brewery that isn’t afraid to offer easy drinking everyday beers, nor to take time to brew massive barrel-aged stouts and complex mixed-fermented sours. We do all this, and we do it to the best of our abilities.

Our people are what make this brewery even more special. At LERVIG, you’ll find an international team with a passion for craft beer that brings a global perspective to our brewing philosophies. Each day we work hard to ensure that we continue to produce beers of the highest quality. We love what we do, we love the beers we make, and we think there’s a pretty good chance you’ll like them too.

In addition to running of the brewery we also operate:

LERVIG Local – Our flagship location.
Canteen – Our beer and Webshop with home delivery.
Lucky Bergen – Our bar in Bergen.
