Someone at Samuel Adams failed geography and can't Google...
On the other hand, all them nations pretty much brew the same stuff with their own spins on it. Tonight I'm brewing for the first time a Swedish Gotlandsdricka. Evergreen needles, juniper berries, sweet gale, and some other secret ingredients & processes. Should be fun.

technically maybe true, but if you want to call it norwegian names, then at least be consistent and call it Maltøl

Hard pass!
I worked at a fish cannery when I was in college. Our main product was salmon, but one year we processed herring before the salmon season. Since all the equipment was designed for salmon, we had to install smaller hoppers inside the giant salmon sized ones. It was my job to make sure the hopper always had herring in it, never over-flowed, but never left fish on the conveyor belt. When I under-estimated how much fish was on the belt, it would overflow the hopper and fish would fall down into the bigger hopper underneath. In the first couple of weeks I messed up quite a few times and after several weeks the smell coming from below could no longer be ignored.

My foreman was a firm believer that you should never order anyone else to do something you wouldn't do yourself so he suited up, duct taped his boots to his rain-gear, and dove in the hopper to bucket out the ~3ft deep herring soup that was rotting down there. The duct tape didn't work because he still ended up with boots full of soup but he won a LOT of respect that day!

I've never been good at delegating, but I think I probably would have in that situation. 🤮

Brew on :mug:

I once had to visit a tuna cannery in American Samoa for work. I couldn't believe the smell and asked the person I was meeting with who's office was in the cannery how he could stand to work there. He said after a while, he didn't even notice the smell until visitors mentioned it.

OH! gods! the PAPER MILL SMELL!

Please don't! We're trying to relax and enjoy our home brews out here and that sounds toxic to the bone ☢ ☢ ☢

Cheers! ;)

I love most cheeses but I've had a couple that gave me that reaction. When food tastes like toejam and death, your brain is trying to tell you it's no good, and you should just listen. There's no acquired taste for some of this stuff, people are just eating it for machismo.
Sooo, you are probably not a fan of funky beers that smell like barnyard and rotten socks? Me neither. :barf:

What's the worst that could happen?

Well actually...
Why on earth would they use organic litter? Unfortunately, when you want nuclear waste to stay put for tens of thousands of years, you don't really want organic material breaking down and generating compost gases making it airborne. Morons.

My Grandfather built houses in the '30s. Grandma led the roofers, and if you couldn't keep up with her, you were out of a job.

That's the family folklore anyway.
