I haven't read the article  but I've bought booze in Norway, and it's goddam expensive.

Article says everything I thought.   The twin tub washing machines, though...that I would never have thought of.

The Norwegians I've known, in the PNW and Alaska drink like fish.

Anybody related to an alcoholic already knew where this headline was going.

Sigh

Same with Canada. Everyone brews their own wine and beer. Bootleggers still make a living.

I ain't even looking. The one I dated admitted driving into Sweden for booze and candy. A lot of cold nights of boredom like what I had in Montana? I'm fermenting a thing.

I've recently started home brewing here in Australia. Distilling is illegal here, but the equipment and essences are shockingly easy to get. I'm highly likely to buy an alembic hood for my all-in-one brewing system and try my hand at making gin at some stage.

ah, brewing is one of my past hobbies and I know what it means to brew in Australia
Brew in winter, store, drink a year later
and damn our brew kits to buy are awesome

/stored over 120 bottles under the house
//had a brew explode all over the verandah including the ceiling
///increasing alcohol content over the recommended level tastes foul

Have you seen their native cuisine? It's like British food but with fish jerky.

Most of the klippfisk is sold to Mediterranean countries (especially Portugal and Spain), they love the stuff.

LOL...no, but they are fishermen.   There is an old joke about not drinking water, because of what fish do in it, but not sure that is from the Norwegian community.
