Home to our Microsoft Skype iOS, Android and Media teams, The Münchenbryggeriet Brewery is one of the most characteristic elements in the skyline of Stockholm as well as being a greatly appreciated memento of a distant industrial epoch. Beer was produced here for over 100 years to satisfy the thirsts of Stockholmers and the last bottle ever to be filled was capped in 1971.
Since the 1970s, the Brewery has functioned as a conference and event venue, as well as home to the Microsoft Skype engineering family!
Address: Skype, Söder Mälarstrand 43, Stockholm
