IKEA’s Latest Offering: You Won’t Find It in the US


PHILIPPE HUGUEN/AFP/GettyImages(WASHINGTON) — IKEA stores in the U.K. are now selling more than couches and shelves.  

The chain is now offering Ol Mork Lager, a dark lager beer.  The bottle is decorated with drawings of hops and features the yellow and blue IKEA logo.

Although the product is new, reviewers on the site Untappd have described the drink as “surprisingly good” and “very sweet” with a “nice malt taste.”  Eleven users have given the beer a rating of 3.46 out of 5.

For 1.75 pounds ($2.75), the 12 oz. bottled beer is available for in-store pickup.

This isn’t the only alcoholic beverage available at the store — a spiced snaps flavored with caraway, anise and fennel is also available. The IKEA menu also offers food items such as Swedish meatballs and herring.
