      Beer was actually illegal here for a loooong time (until 1989), but beer culture sprung up pretty rapidly and now Icelanders are usually pretty proud of the local brands - to the point that when my boyfriend saw the Tuborg (Danish beer) that I had for guests, the next time he came over he brought an Icelandic beer (forget the brand) and was insistent that I try it to see what a proper beer should taste like  ;)
