The competition organisers put on a couple of excursions which any competition participants could join if they wished. The first was to the Voss Brewery.
It is situated above the town where we were staying and from the balconies visible in the picture above, we enjoyed wonderful sunset views over the valley.
Inside, we got a good explanation of the brewing process which takes place on the lower floor of the building.
Having tried a number of their beers, I concur with the judges at the Norwegian Whiskey & Beer Festivals at which the Voss Brewery has won plenty of awards.
