Taste the Saga Brewery Tour

DESCRIPTION

Iceland's drinking culture and history with alcohol is interesting to say the least. From 1915 the nation was subject to complete alcohol prohibition that lasted almost a quarter of a century, when in 1935 wine and spirits were legalized.

Odd as it may seem, beer was not legalized. Beer was considered particularly dangerous for Icelanders and was banned for more than half a century, until March 1. in 1989. The theory was that since beer was cheaper than other forms of alcohol it would likely lead to personal deprivation, poverty and violence.

On the brewery tour of Ölgerðin brewery you will journey through history of brewing in Iceland, dive into the local drinking culture, taste beer and other beverages from Ölgerðin's main brewery, as well as a selection of ambitious beers from their award-winning craft brewery, Borg Brugghús.

Established in 1913, Ölgerðin Egill Skallagrímsson brewery employs many world-class champions and has received numerous international awards for beers, including "World's Best Standard Lager″ at the 2011 World Beer Awards and Gold at the 2012 World Beer Cup for best German-style Pilsner.
