Country of OriginIceland
Style Witbier
ABV 5.2%
Year of Origin 2010
Brewery Einstok Olgerd

With prohibition in Iceland only being lifted in 1989, the history of any beer is quite short and it’s no different here. The brewery was created in 2010 as an offshoot of one the most popular breweries in Iceland, Viking. Set only 60 miles south of the Arctic Circle, the brewery takes its water from glaciers which travel down the local mountain range and through lava fields, which produces some of the purest water around. The Einstok White Ale is a nod to the Belgian Witbier style.
