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 is curated by the Museum of Danish America in Elk Horn, Iowa.
