Not A Sound, Except Muted Country Music (Inland Empire)
Wednesday, 16th October 2013.
we ride the train inland from Bergen to Voss. it’s a grey and cloudy day, and there’s nothing spectacular about the ride. most of us are quiet, and try to rest.
there’s a car waiting at the station. we drive out of Voss and into the mountains, to Norheim, where some of the most exiting Norwegian craft beers are brewed today. the clouds break up as we reach the brewery. the view from the tasting terraces is amazing. sheep are grazing down below, and there’s not a sound to be heard except muted country music seeping out from Ian, the American brewmaster’s music player.
this is the inland empire.
