AI is something that is talked about in several different industries, but there are few who apply it in their production or to streamline their processes. Ocean, the craft brewery from Mölndal, has together with Aixia, also a Mölndal company, developed and produced a beer based on AI. It is no ordinary beer. The recipe is developed and based on the entire Ocean Brewery's recipe archive linked to the sales data for each recipe.
Oceanbryggeriet and Aixia are both companies that want to challenge their industry. Ocean was early in testing new flavors and ways to brew beer. Aixia was started in 2021 and was created to be able to offer services from the data center all the way to applied AI. Now the two Mölndal companies have joined forces to challenge new ways of using AI.
“We want to show a wider target group that you can apply AI to many areas of use, even in smaller companies. As long as data is available, there are opportunities to use AI. The idea came to make something completely new, a beer produced with the help of AI. ” says Brand Manager August Iwdal at Aixia.
"I really liked the idea from the very beginning . We immediately started digging into our handwritten prescription binders to hand over the material and let AI do its thing. I really like the positive cultural clash between craftmanship and data. A wonderful process, with many laughs, excitement, expectations, curiosity, language misunderstandings and a bit of throwing oneself into the new unknown. With the AI team at Aixia, we were able to develop a completely unique recipe based on this ", says Rodrigo Wilner, CEO of Oceanbryggeriet.
The label is also developed using AI, based on all previous labels. With the help of a reference image, the AI had to come up with a proposal.
The beer called "Yes AI Can" is a folk beer of 2.8% will be on sale from the 27th of April at Oceanbryggeriet's farm shop which is open every Wednesday between 07.30 - 15.30.
