Pripps was a major brewery in Sweden and is now a part of Carlsberg,[citation needed] in which Pripps remains as a trademark. The company was based in Stockholm; their main product was Pripps Blå. They also owned Ramlösa. Pripps was founded in Gothenburg by Johan Albrecht Pripp in 1828.


Pripps Blå, lit. Pripp's Blue, is a light lager first introduced in 1959; it is said to be one of the most popular beers in Sweden.[1]

Pripps Blå is an inexpensive beer, for it is brewed with exactly 51% barley — the minimum amount of barley in beer required by Swedish law. A low-calorie version called Pripps Blå Light[2] is also made. Other versions are Pripps Blå Extra Stark,[3] a full malt, extra strong beer with 7.2% alcohol and Pripps Blå Pure[4] with a lower carbohydrates content, scheduled to replace Pripps Blå Light.


The beers are brewed at Carlsberg Sverige.
