Ligna is plural of the Latin word lignum which means wood. Already in 1870 Ligna was a carpentry at Hornsgatan, which grew into one of Södermalm's last small-scale industrial areas with its scrap warehouses, carpenters and workshops. Ligna then became the name of the entire working area at the present Drakenbergsparken on Södermalm in Stockholm. Now Ligna gets new life with the beer of the same name. Inspired by the carpentry and Hornstull's long craft tradition, it is brewed by Hornstulls Brewery Society, with blocks of toasted oak, a sturdy cedar and it’s also strained through sawdust before finally stored on oak barrels. The 75 cl bottle has a label of sandpaper and comes in a cardboard box embossed with a measuring stick.
