Nostetta portfolio grows with RPS Brewing, an award-winning indie brewery from northern periferia

Nostetta has invested in an innovative indie brewery RPS Brewing based in Kuopio, Finland. RPS Brewing completed a directed share issue in the end of 2018 to strengthen its team and competence in business development and to accelerate its growth in international markets. Along with Nostetta Oy, a Finnish business person of the year 2017 Mika Sutinen, the CEO of Kotipizza Group Tommi Tervanen and a group of private investors and employees joined the company as investors.

RPS Brewing’s beers have been awarded for their taste for example in various categories of “the best beer in Finland” -competition in 2018. RPS Brewing’s brewmaster Aki wishes to produce tasteful but drinkable beer. The brewery describes its beer as balanced, fresh and pure to the palette. And as we need a game in everything in life, the beer also can beat each other in different forms. In strength, freshness, body type, or else. Eventually the strength meets softness and cuddliness and is melted. You know the drill.

Besides the tasteful beer, the company is also known for its innovative marketing efforts. One of the most famous examples is release of the “Let’s Settle This Like Adults” beer for Trump-Putin summit 2018 in Helsinki.
