Norway is the country with the highest alcohol taxes, so it is not a surprise that it brings very unexciting brews.
Norway had barely more than 10 breweries until 2000 with very few styles to choose from. But the fantastic newcomers Nøgne Ø and Haandbryggeriet are bringing some hope. Ringnes (owned by Carlsberg) is the largest brewer but the people are mainly drinking local, so no brewery really dominates.
I was in Norway (Oslo, Trondheim, Lofoten islands) in 1990 but not for beer hunting purposes. Thanks to Per Samuelsson for the nice beers from Nøgne Ø.
Breweries: 35 to 45 / Beers: 450 to 500 / Consumption per capita: 55 litres.
