If you find yourself patrolling near Greenland in sectors AH / AJ especially near Disko Bay - keep a look out at all times!

My parents returned from a cruise of the area recetnly, and my Father asked me to back up all his photographs he had taken.

I'd hate to run my U-Boat into one of these!

Have you heard of this crazy guy who harvests such icebergs ?

He started a company which brews "Iceberg beer" using water from real icebergs only. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

The icebergs have propably the cleanest water available on this planet.

Hmmm......... Let's think about this.

Icebergs come from Glaciers:

Glaciers come from thousands of year's worth of snow accumulation:

.....So for thousands of years, various critters have been walking around on this snow.

With my luck, I'd get the case of beer that "benefited" from a solid shot of Polar Bear whiz! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

They say that if you drink the water in London it has passed through nine other people before it gets to you! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/metal.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/mockface.gif http://media.ubi.com/us/forum_images/gf-glomp.gif

PS. I will give it a go just as soon as it hits Europe.
I have an interest in Cunard Line, anything to do with icebergs is ok with me...White Star Line...Titanic...Iceberg...so yeah I will drink to that!

I've tried Quidi Vidi beer, not the iceberg brand which is new, but the others like Honey Brown and 1892 are very decent beers.
