Episode 12 — Kjetil Jikiun of Norway's Nøgne-Ø

Nøgne-Ø’s humble founder, Kjetil Jikiun, was an airline pilot who ran routes between Norway and the US for years before he took advantage of his luggage privileges — transporting beers, then ingredients like grain and hops, and eventually even equipment that helped him start home brewing. What started as a creative hack in his kitchen turned into one of the world’s most respected breweries, transforming a nation of beer drinkers, and now leading Norway’s start-up brewing industry into its second generation.
