As of today (2016), there are several microbreweries operating in Iceland. The micro- and homebrewing scene has been budding nicely in the last few years, the latest player being Segull 67. The Breweries In a category of their own are Borg and Einstök. These two operate under the wing of the two "large" local breweries (Egils and Víking), serving as their ...

Most States have two different types of liquor licenses. On premise and Off premise. On premise is selling alcohol to drink there, off premise is for taking stuff home. It is entirely possible that an establishment will only have one or the other.

Draft isn't a very regulated term but most often draws its meaning from context. At a bar, draft is usually placed opposite bottled, meaning like you said that the beer is pushed using gas from a keg or drawn via vacuum from a cask. This is the actual meaning of draft. But.. On bottles and cans it most often means "Like-Draft", or the marketing ...

Yes, there are craft breweries in Iceland. There aren't that many, but with a population of only 300,000 people that's to be expected. The main ones are Einstök, Borg, Gædingur, and Ölvisholt. There's also Stedji and Kaldi, but these are less interesting. I felt Gædingur was a bit variable on quality. Note that none of these produce extreme beers. They focus ...

As Anon mentions above, you're probably thinking of Smithwick's with a Guinness head, rather than the other way around — Guinness has a creamier head, which I think is the reason why people order it. It is not, by any stretch a Black and Tan — and yes, the name would be seen as offensive by most in Ireland and I have never heard ordered by locals (this is ...

There are many craft beer pubs in Tokyo. But there is no craft beer brand made in Tokyo. I recommend Coedo Beer from Kawagoe-city, Saitama-Pref. Kawagoe is a traditional town near Tokyo. It takes 40 minutes by train from Shinjuku/Ikebykuro. Coedo has 4 flavors, "Kyara" (Golden Brown), "Ruri" (Blue), "Shiro" (White), "Shikkoku" (Black) and "Beniaka" (Red). ...

The province of Québec is very fertile in microbreweries. Montréal being the major city, has lots to offer. A lot of the beers are available throughout the province, however some are only available at the microbrewery itself, especially seasonal beers - a good reason to visit them! here's a list of the best microbreweries and some of their speciality beers: ...

You can find a lot of different bars that sell micro-brews in Tokyo. most All of the micro-breweries I know of are located outside of Tokyo. However, I can't definitely say "there are no micro-breweries in Tokyo" as I am not omnipotent. Again, there are a ton of places to get micro-brews in Tokyo; here is a restaurant that I have frequented over the past ...

The only thing I can add to the already given answers is for you to try out Ölvisholt's beer Jólabjór (or Lava if you find it). Here in Sweden we get the annual Jólabjór at the state-operated monopoly Systembolaget. It's a discrete smoked beer imho. Jólabjór at Ratebeer

I was on a quest to find some hoppy beers in Iceland and here is what I found: Hollie's Hobbies which has a huge selection of Mikeller beers.

I don't know which is the most distinct / unique beer, but did find this list of beer in Iceland.

São Paulo has seen a big rise in the craft beer scene through the last years (as does the whole country), so you'll probably find what you're looking for. The city doesn't have an actual (physical) brewery of its own (besides brewpubs, which are only a few, the most relevant being Cervejaria Nacional), once most of them are in the countryside of São Paulo ...

If you're in the South West, then it's definitely worth checking out Otter Brewery (a really good range with a cracking bitter). Also Abbey Ales are the only ales actually brewed in Bath, not to say that Bath Ales aren't great, but this is real Bath ale! Depending how far SW you go, Exeter Brewery's Avocet Ale is a nice drop that you can have a really good ...

The kings beer sold in the goan state of India. Super popular, but only available within the state. Granted, it's a state vs a city but its a really small state.

According to the wiki that you linked: The earliest reference to Epiphany as a Christian feast was in A.D. 361, by Ammianus Marcellinus. So, it would be pertinent to drink wines made from Italian grapes since the feast was held within the time of the Roman Empire. More particularly, you might pick a grape variety from a list of ancient grapes from which ...

This book "Reise Um Die Erde Durch Nord-Asien und Die Beiden Oceane ..., Part 1, Volume 3 By Adolph Erman", available on googleBooks, which describes a trip to Russia in 1828-30 quotes yet another text "Vergl.

Can't tell you shops or supermarkets, but buying in internet should be possible, e.g. here: bevandeadomicilio.com, trovaprezzi.it, Amazon.it. I didn't look for sales outside Italy, since you mentioned to be in Southern Italy. Sometimes local people do know more.

From the looks of it they sell their beers on rotation in their own bottle shop: We are just a humble micro brewery producing small batches of beer. Often times people develop a love affair with one particular beer (Roman Candle fanatics tend to be the most assertive!), but we brew over 50 styles in a year! With only 9 fermentors this ultimately means ...

As was said before, a Weissbier is also called a Hefeweizen and is very common in Bavaria and the rest of Germany. If you want something similiar look for a Paulaner Hefeweizen which is sold in America. The yeast that is added gives it a strong Banana like flavor. It is typically served in a tall narrow glass. Other common beers in Bavaria are ...

Was the beer that you tried pale yellow, slightly sour in flavour and cloudy? If so it was probably Weissbier which is Bavarian wheat based beer. Any Weissbier or wheat beer should be similar to it and these are widely available (some British and American breweries have started to make wheat beers recently). If you like Weissbier you will probably like the ...

I've had amazing beer from Iceland from a brewery called Einstök. Here is their website: The Einstök Brewery. The Winter Ale and Pale Ale are one of the best that I've ever had and one of the few that got 5 stars from me on the Untappd App. Cheers

Portugal Beer History Lisbon Beer Museum Edit: Dois Corvos and Oitava Colina are both craft breweries in the area. Generally, Lisbon seems to be a wine destination, which means beer doesn't end up shining in any significant way in the region.

Another one is Ryujin Shuzo Brewery or Ginko Kura Brewery, from Gunnma Prefecture, not too far from the capital. Oze no Yukidoke IPA (that I tasted) seems to be their most popular product. I am disappointed for not finding any more precise references online now, but I advise to search the names in bold above on Google or Instagram (where I have my beer-also ...

I would suggest Heritage Brewing (Link) in Manassas, VA. Small brewery, great beers. Kings Mountain is pretty good. Lost Rhino (Link) is another good one in Ashburn, VA.

On my 2nd trip to Tokyo, I found Popeye pub in a quaint part of the city @ Ryogoku: Popeye Beer Club. They have 70 taps and mostly from Japanese breweries.

The two craft breweries in Lisbon are Dois Corvos and Oitava Colina. Dois Corvos has a tasting room a couple km from the centre. Both make good beer.
