Icelandic beer brewing has only really been going since 1989, when the country’s beer ban was finally overturned. Despite a long brewing tradition, all alcohol was banned in Iceland in 1915. The ban on wine and spirits was lifted in 1922 and 1935 respectively but the ban on beer was not lifted until 1989.
Since then local breweries began producing beer and over time many microbreweries have been established creating craft and speciality Icelandic beer. Iceland has got it’s beer passion back.
