Well, if you believe in Norse mythology, then in heaven there is beer. Sort of. Really, it’s mead. Which can be made with hops to be beer-like, but usually it isn’t, so it’s more like wine.
In Valhalla, there is a goat called Heiðrún (Heidrun), who eats leaves and produces an endless supply of mead from her teats.**
So basically, if you were a Norse warrior and you fell in battle, you had a pretty sweet afterlife waiting for you.
*Yes, Wagner had an obsession with Norse mythology and that’s where we got one of the greatest compositions in the history of music, The Ring Cycle, an epic four-opera (The Rhinegold, The Valkyrie, Siegfried and Twilight of the Gods) series which includes one of my all-time favourite pieces of music, ‘Siegfried’s Funeral March’ from Twilight of the Gods.
**There’s a meadery in Northern California called Heidrun Meadery. Which is awesome!
