You are what you eat & drink

Do they have beer in…

In a moment of brilliant inspiration I have added a new feature here. My mind is still like lightning, even at 60; one flash and it’s gone…

Fridays from today, will feature,

“Do they have beer in…”

The object is to look at some of the out-of-the-way, hard-to-locate countries of the world, places where you have never considered the possibility that they might indeed have beer.

So the question today is Do they have beer in… Greenland?

“Uh, where’s that?”

Well, it’s sort of up there, near the cold part of Canada, the really cold part, and Iceland.

Yes, they have a flag

But, do they have beer?

Apparently, yes, they do.

Grønland, that’s how you spell it in Danish. You see, while Greenland is a lot% autonomous, it really is a part of Denmark. The image and caption are from Umamimart, a food and drink blog, they have a great write up on Greenland and a Greenlander store in Copenhagen, it’s worth reading.

And a Grønland Ice Cap Beer– “Brewed with the purest water in the world from the Greenland Ice Cap”. Yum!

Bu that’s not all, Greenland is trendy, they have craft beer:

Made with Inland Ice, no less

There are beer mats, or coasters:

And Christmas Beer:

So, yes, Greenland does have beer, and not only these, there are others.

Greenland also have great food, although local food tastes won’t be yours, they compensate.

Greenland cuisine

During your stay you can taste many delicious local dishes. Look forward to smoked salmon, shrimp, lamb, whale steaks, catfish, Greenland halibut and even musk ox. You will also enjoy traditional Danish dishes like smørrebrød and meatballs with potatoes. – Nanortalik (travel site)

  1. Check out the Inuit delicacy known as ‘igunak’. You’d need a couple of beers after that, I reckon.

    • >Vilges, I am well aware that some of the ‘local delicacies’ wouldn’t be appropriate, hence my aviso above, nice to see you still around, I do get over to yours at times and have a marathon catch up.
