Riff Beer

Riff – Beer By Dregen  

In the summer of 2020, Dregen entered the beverage industry with his Riff – Lager By Dregen. The beer took the market by storm and empty shelves unfortunately soon became a common sight when demand overwhelmed the then brewery.
With the aim set on continued development, an extensive selection process was started to find a brewery that could meet both Swedish and international demand. With consensus on quality, flexibility and top-class service, Dregen and the brewery Nyckelbryggerier found each other where the agreement was signed in February 2021.

Better, faster and tastier has since been the mantra for the duo who have now really reloaded to develop the concept.

Riff has been expanded and become a “family” consisting Riff Lager, Riff IPA and a Riff Alcohol-free, all brewed with love to the nature of northern Sweden and to the sound of distorted hard rock of the noblest kind. In short, a repertoire for every occasion and scene!

If you’re curious about which stores and restaurant you can buy RIFF at, take a look further down on this page.

Riff – Lager (5.2%)
 served at 8-10C, suitable as a social drink, for a buffet or for dishes of fish or  meat.

A lovely and fresh light Lager with a distinct character that you won’t miss! The medium-bodied taste is filled with a wonderful hop-aromatic tone that rests safely in our use of as many as 4 different hop varieties for this Riff. The pleasantly malty aroma offers hints of light bread, honey and a touch of citrus. The beer is naturally brewed in the traditional way and ends up directly in the right taste and strength, without mixing or diluting. In other words, a slightly more difficult, cumbersome and also a more expensive brewing process than we usually see today, but we choose not to compromise in our ambitions or with our quality. Not on stage nor in the bottle.

Riff – IPA (6.3%) served at 8-10C, suitable as a social drink or for dishes of lamb or beef.

An India Pale Ale that does not disappear in the buzz, a bit like a faithful friend. This IPA invites you to a wonderful malty taste experience along the northern plains with a clear bitterness, hints of  loaf, butterscotch and cloudberries! In addition, an astonishingly wonderful balance is achieved thanks to the honey and bergamot. During the 18th century, IPA quickly became the English sailors’ favorite on the seven seas, and here we give you the chance for a fantastic taste experience, regardless of whether you are at sea, with good friends – or at the rock concert.

Riff – Non-alcoholic (0.5%) 
served at about 8C, suitable as a social drink or for a buffet, dishes of fish, lamb or light meat.

A superb non-alcoholic alternative that exceeds both hopes and expectations! A light character, characterized by malty elements both in terms of aroma and taste. In addition, a harmonious balance from hops and a bread flavor with the touch of crispy hard rye bread. The yellow, clear and almost golden color, increases the fresh experience achieved through the cold-fermented production process. In short, a wonderful gentle taste experience that often leads to the desire of having more. Just like good music that touches the soul.

Riff – APA (5,6%) served at 10-12°C, suitable as a social drink, while relaxing and for a buffet or dishes of lamb or beef.

This American Pale Ale doesn’t let Uncle Sam down, just as it won’t leave you wondering what’s in the bottle. An admirable marriage made in heaven where tones of Swedish crispbread meet the smoothness of syrup and freshness of tropical apricots. While taking your senses higher these wonderfully balanced flavours lands comfortably on a bed of orange peel from the sunshine state, together with exotic spices from the Caribbean.

Where APA sometimes is considered the newcomer in this field, originating from the early 1980s, you can rely on us making sure it is in good hands and repeatedly delivering you the new hits of today. 

Comes easy when solidly backed up by our natural strength of arctic heritage and pride, regardless if going solo or in a bigger band!

Riff By Dregen in Germany:
Double Dry Hopped India Pale Ale – 6,8% vol. alc.

Sudden Death Brewing is at its core a Rock ‘n’ Roll brewery. On any given day, classic rock, punk, and heavy metal echo through the speakers. It was only natural we team up with Dregen – guitarist of the Hellacopters and Backyard Babies
– to brew RIFF in hazy form. It’s a harmonious (RIFF) salad of berry, citrus, and sweet fruit balanced by a mild bitterness and a clean finish. Trust us, you’ll love this Killer RIFF.
