Winter does not stop the Seattle beer lovers from having one, and Friday night one of us (you know who you are!) had an Elysian Bifrost Winter Ale. It weighs in at 7.5% alcohol by volume! I thought ‘bifrost’ simply means doubly frosty or cold (which is certainly implied by the beer label picture). But in Norse mythology Bifröst is a burning rainbow bridge that reaches between Midgard (earth) and Asgard, the realm of the gods. So that explains the bridge that was shown in the movie Thor.
