I recently took a trip out of Cascadia to explore a new part of the world. I found myself in Iceland where craft beer is starting to take off in the country. Beer above 2% ABV was actually illegal in Iceland until 1989 and on top of that, not much agriculture in the country to speak of. So I was curious to find out how much the craft beer scene has grown in that short amount of time and what sort of challenges are faced in making beer in Iceland. I visited a local brewery with a team behind it who started importing craft beer. I sat down with Andri Kjartansson, Ingi Kjartansson and Steinn Stefánsson of Malbygg Brugghus.
