There are many ways of finding rare beers when you travel. You can brows the shops, you can do a pub crawl, you can visit a brewery.
Or you can trade with a local beer hound.
Haukur is active on ratebeer as well as a beer blogger, so, naturally, I got in touch with him for a trade when I knew I was going to Iceland. It turned out he lives only a few minutes away from my hotel, so he came by to say hello.
He gave me four hard to find bottles of beer from the Ölvisholt brewery, which I managed to transport home without incidents. I look forward to enjoy them soon!
