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.
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.
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:
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 ...
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.

Yes, there are craft beer pubs in Porto and microbreweries from Porto! Particularly, Cerveja Letra was born not far from Porto and later opened a beer garden in Porto; Cervejaria do Carmo has around 50 different types of craft beers, giving more visibility to craft beers from Porto than to internacional brands; Fábrica da Picaria has its own craft beer being ...
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 really willing to push your own limits, try The Wild's sour/wild beers. I became aware of them last year completely by accident, in a trip to UK, and loved their Modus Operandi beer. I also had another very light pale sour wich wasn't remarkable compared to the first one, but fairly ok. (I guess it probably should have had more time in the bottle ...
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. Opisanie semli Kamtschatiki Tsch II Str. 199" which in turn has a more detailed description of the Kamchatskan Cossacks making a preparation of H ...
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.
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.
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 ...
Craft beer and beer tourism seems to have not yet hit the Canary Islands.
The other notable beer local to the Canary Islands that we know of is Viva (http://www.cervezaviva.com/).
We don't know of any craft beers in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria but Cerveza Gourmet (http://www.ratebeer.com/p/cerveza-gourmet-las-palmas-de-gran-canaria/34492/)
appears to be a ...
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 that ...
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.
Call them and find out cause in NYC you can get it at a couple of international beer carriers (SEARCH ON YELP).
Or try PRESIDENTE Beer from their DR neighbours at any Publix Supermarket/Wine & Spirits.
