Vakka-Suomen Panimo Osakeyhtiö (Vakka-Suomi Brewery LLC) is a microbrewery located in the city of Uusikaupunki. Since its founding in 2008, the brewery has been producing high-class specialty beers. During this fairly short amount of time, the brewery has been enriching the Finnish beer culture with dozens of different beer types. In addition to beers, the brewery also manufactures ciders, other alcoholic beverages and ice teas.
The brewery’s product name “Prykmestar” pays honour to the old beer brewing tradition of Uusikaupunki. “Prykmestar” means brewmaster in the local dialect. Still in the early 20th century, beer was crafted in the vaulted basement of the town’s old brewery, known as “Pryki” to the locals. Since then, the brewing activity slowly faded altogether, until after nearly one hundred years later the tradition was brought back to life with new vitality.
