Norway Beer Reviews

Norway’s history with beer is both deep and wide, going back about 1000 years. Every Norwegian farmhouse—until the early 19th century—had a brewhouse. Government restrictions have kept the beer industry in Norway from rapid growth and the ABV from going much higher than 6 or 7%. Carlsberg-Ringnes and Hansa-Borg are the largest two brewers, but a number of craft microbrewers enjoy succcess, such as Nogne-O, Austmann, and Haandbryggeriet.
