Ringnes

Wednesday, we went to brewery school at the Trondheim Ringnes Brewery with the faculty of the international school. It was very fun! The class cost 50 kr. (about $10) and lots of beer is included. Seeing how a 1/2 liter of beer in the grocery store costs $5 ($10 in a pub, $15 in a restaurant), and you could easily drink a few liters during the class, the entrance fee is a deal. Unfortunately, I had a lot of work to do that night to prep for school, so I very sadly had to limit my beer drinking. The sacrifices we make for math!


Here's a slide from the class comparing taxes on beer in the world. The stack of coins on the right represents Norway, with the highest beer taxes in the world.
