Folk & Friends

After years of dreaming and planning, Alli and Victor McCleary Olin opened up the first Folk & Friends beer café in December 2016 on Kungsholmen in Stockholm. After a positive start filled with an abundance of love, and encouragement they opened up a second location in March 2018 on Södermalm, Stockholm.

They wanted to combine their passions for craft beer, hospitality, games, and dogs without opening up a traditional bar concept with all of its regulations, and drawbacks.

A new kind of modern pub concept was born; a welcoming place where the focus is on spending quality time with friends, together with some great low alcohol craft beer that can be enjoyed throughout the night. It is a place where you can bring your family and where dogs are just as welcomed as people. All the beer can be enjoyed at the location or taken away.

All dogs allowed

In a world where the majority of restaurants seem to be meat oriented with a token vegetarian option, Folk & Friends has chosen to be mostly vegetarian/vegan with a token meat option.

Folk & Friends believe in fairness, and has made it a priority to take care of its team by offering a transparent and inclusive workplace with just wages. They do not discriminate and welcome all friendly and open minded people.

Co-labs & expansion

The journey with the beer cafés has lead Folk & Friends to venture into a variety of brewing projects under the brand Folk & Brew with many exciting collaborations in the making.

Through their concept Folk & Work they will bring craft beer and other high quality non-alcoholic drinks to your office in the form of curated fridges and popup bars.
