For the past few years I’ve guest blogged on my friend Kristofor Barnes’ excellent SoCal craft beer and homebrew enthusiast site Bierkast. One of the first articles I wrote was a review of the Icelandic beers I had a chance to sample when I took a trip for work. In the sprit of synergy (i.e. it’s too much trouble to port the content over here), please cruise on over there and check it out!
I recently had the opportunity to take a trip to Reykjavik, Iceland for work and set out to sample and learn about as many Icelandic beers as I could get my hands on. There are actually quite a few breweries and beers native to Iceland, as the perfectly-pure, glacier-fed water is a boon to brewers worldwide. I’m focusing only on the beers I personally sampled, as there are far too many to list otherwise, and I’m including quotes from the breweries themselves, where possible. From seasonal craft ales to mass-produced light lagers, Iceland has something for everyone. Skál!
