Prohibition started in 1920 and ended in the United States on this day in 1933. Prohibition in Iceland went into effect in 1915 and lasted, to some extent, until March 1, 1989 (since celebrated as “Beer Day”).
That’s quite a long time without a cold one to end the day.
Luckily, Icelanders have embraced beer and its quickly becoming the drink of choice in Iceland. Want more details on the beer scene I found? Take a look at a post I wrote for Traveling for Taverns: Forget Brennivin, Pass Me a Beer.
