Aass Brewery (Norwegian: Aass Bryggeri) is Norway's oldest brewery still active. Founded in 1834 in Drammen.
The Brewey is situated at its original site, Nedre Sund, Bragernes, Drammen, by the Drammen river. The company was purchased by Poul Lauritz Aass in 1864, and has been owned by the Aass family ever since.
The brewery building has been expanded and modernized several times, but always keeping the original building's style. The building's central location by the Drammen river, prominently visible when riding a train into the city, means that it is a characteristic and important part of the city.
