TRIP TO SØRLANDET AND THE NØGNE Ø BREWERY JUNE 10-11
As part of our 40th anniversary, we are pleased to offer the above to members and friends of JNS! The Nøgne Ø brewery was the very first in Europe to produce sake and very first in Norway to brew craft beer and the society would like to share this story with you. The name of the brewery means "naked island" and refers to the poem Terje Vigen by Henrik Ibsen. The Norwegian coast is dotted with naked islands and Sørlandet has its fair share.
