Icelandic brewery Steojar what is probably the most interesting collaborations yet in 2014. (Yeah, I know we are 8 days in.) Steojar has teamed up with whaling company Hvalur to make a beer made with whale meal (meat). Needless to say, a beer brewed with whale has pissed a few people off.
The whale beer is brewed for a special annual festival where attendees eat whale meat and whale fat. The idea was to brew a beer to pair with the traditional festival food.
Despite the backlash, Dagbjartur Ariliusson, the brewery’s owner says it is only going to sold in Iceland for a limited time.
Might the be the most Viking beer to date?
