Egill Skallasgrimsson

was a noble Viking warrior

& titular star of his own saga;

slayer of Eric Bloodaxe’s son.


Egill fearlessly pillaged

& plundered

took on the mighty sea;

slayed royalty for vengeance


And now provides the name 

for a beer and beverage company

in Iceland

making trendy beverages flow.


So now effete beer geeks like me

can ponder the nuances

of three different IPA’s 

and assign a rating for each one.


Hate to scare you, people,

but the transformation

from Leif Ericsson to Leif Garrett

is reaching the final stages.




Author's Notes/Comments: 

'nuff said

Viking Lore

Not quiet Thor or Ragnar

or Hollywood's version of  Aegir (also a brewing company)

but it does go  down smooth

for officianados of beer.


              BLACK LIVES MATTER!

The wussification of beer? Or

The wussification of beer? Or Icelandic Sagas?  You decide which is right.
