A Rare Icelandic Beer…! Hvalur 2, by Bruggus Stedja!

A rare Icelandic beer I had while I was in Reykjavik, Iceland last month. This really is a rare beer, because you can’t find it in the United States & it’s difficult to find in Iceland. I had to contact the brewery directly for a special delivery! The beer is called “Hvalur 2” and it’s brewed by the brewery, “Brugghus Stedja.” What makes this beer special is that it’s brewed with fin whale testicles, which are smoked with sheep dung. I highly recommend this rare beer for the adventurous traveler! 


Islenski Barinn, a Restaurant in Reykjavik, Iceland.

A restaurant in Reykjavik, Iceland called “Islenski Barinn” that serves up some traditional Icelandic food like fermented shark, dried haddock, puffin bird, etc. Not to mention that there’s also a decent selection of local beers.

Three Dollar Dewey’s

Picture I took in August of 2012 when I spent a few days in Portland, Maine (via Greyhound bus from Washington, DC). Three Dollar Dewey’s at 241 Commercial Street is definitely a place to stop at if you’re in Portland, if you like craft beer & lobster sandwiches! Not to mention the charming brick walls & wood interior.
