Having a pint and a smoke becomes kind of exciting as well...

Yes Bogi - we spotted that when we were buying souvenir Brennivin last trip (and we thought Guinness was Black Death!). Then we knew why all you Icelandic were well pleased to get a few free cans straight from the "Source".

Alchahol Tax

Just so the keen beerage consumers amongst us are aware that the Tax on beer and cider is due to come down and hopefully this will result in a net decrease in prices and a net increase in the amount we drink. Whats even better to know is the tax on alchapops is soon to increase and thus the underage hoodid culture will struggle to get bevyd like I was at the ribnet christmas dinner. Yes I am the drunk one that sat in the corner singing songs.
Greetings from Rasher
