Presented by Aalborg and Linie Aquavits
Denmark, Norway and Sweden share a “spirited” tradition of enjoying beer and aquavit – sometimes together, sometimes separately. This exhibition explores the cultural history of these beverages, follows those drinking traditions to Scandinavian-American communities, and answers questions like “What IS aquavit, anyway?” and “How do you ‘skål’ correctly?” Fun, informative, and engaging, this exhibition will travel to Scandinavian museums across the United States between 2015 and 2018.
This exhibition is developed in partnership with other Scandinavian-American museums, and will travel across the United States.

|Museum of Danish America, Elk Horn, Iowa||April 24 – October 25, 2015|
