Viking beer

As a Norse-flavoured pagan and a keen lover of real ale, this seems like the perfect combination. Time for another trip to Norway I think!

During the Viking Age, mead was a beverage that celebrated the gods with honey as ingredient – usually reserved for the upper class – while beer celebrated people and was drunk everyday and in traditional social contexts.

Now, Natural History Museum in Oslo has recreated genuine Viking beer based on the Norsemen’s use of herbs and plants.
