Thisted Brewery (Danish: Thisted Bryghus) is a regional brewery in Thisted in the north of Denmark founded in 1902.[1] The brewery supplies the local market with pilsner beer, and has gained recognition internationally for beers like Porse Guld (spiced with bog myrtle) and Limfjords Porter, a Baltic porter.[2][3]

In 1995 Thisted Brewery was the first Danish brewer to introduce an organic beer.[2][4]

Thisted Brewery was named the 2015 Brewery of the Year by the 9,000 members of the Danish beer enthusiasts association, Danske Ølentusiaster.[5]

Twentieth century beer writer Michael Jackson wrote of Thisted's Limfjords Porter:

"It was full of character: a dense, brownish, head over a slatey, black, brew; full-bodied and lightly oily; a touch of burnt-grass, rooty, peatiness; a long, warming, finish; and an alcohol content of 7.9. The flavours were very complex, and I was not surprised to hear that both smoked malt and licorice were used."[3]

In 2016 Thisted Brewery produced a "beer geek" version of Limfjords Porter in cooperation with international craft brewer, Mikkeller.[6][7]

In 2019 the company invested 30 million kroner in a new brewery in Thisted.[8]
