Greeley, Colorado, is opening Skål! Scandinavian Spirits, a national traveling exhibition on Saturday, February 2 through Saturday, July 20. The national tour travels to Scandinavian museums across the United States and you’re invited to participate! Take this unique opportunity to explore the history and tastes of Scandinavian Spirits! The exhibition is presented by Aalborg and Linie Aquavits and shares the history and drinking culture in Sweden, Norway and Denmark and how those traditions came to the United States with immigrants. The exhibit focuses on beer and aquavit, the traditional booze of Scandinavia that translates as “the water of life.”

Scandinavians have brewed beer for over 1,500 years and Greeley History Museum’s exhibit offers a great cultural display of Scandinavian-American communities and their drinking traditions. Skål! Scandinavian Spirits is informative, engaging and a great opportunity to spend some “spirited” time with family and friends.
