Icelandic Winter Ale

Seasonal Winter Brew

Do you celebrate or fear winter? In Iceland we celebrate with limited-edition winter ale. One sip of our seasonal craft beer will inspire you to face the elements. Hand-cut and cured spruce tips create a smoky pine and whisky flavor not for the faint of heart. This drink is to be earned.

This is no beach beer, you’ll find no fruit garnish, no insipid sour. The full-bodied flavor, eternal warmth, and soul-cleansing satisfaction that comes from an Icelandic Winter Ale is meant only for those who have braved the cold of night. If you have yet to embrace your Viking spirit then this is not a drink for you.

Ask yourself: Am I worthy?

If the answer is yes, then reach for our limited-edition seasonal craft beer. It pairs perfectly with that smoked leg of lamb or saddle of pork. The smokey pine and whisky undertones compliment dark chocolate on cold nights, warming your soul and igniting your spirit. It’s a taste that promises new beginnings and inspires courage, and it won’t be around for long.
