For decades Canada and Denmark have had a territorial dispute about a small island in the Nares Strait, between Canada and Greenland. Hans Island is only 1.3 square kilometers big, and it has no vegetation or valuable natural resources. Basically it’s a big rock in the middle of nowhere. Still both NATO-allies fight a Cold War over Hans Island. From time to time both countries launch expeditions to plant their flag and leave a bottle of their national booze on the island, to welcome thirsty visitors with typical “Canadian” or “Danish” hospitality. The whole situation is as bizarre as it is hilarious.

This bitter blond beer goes by the name Hemelswater, which means ‘Heaven’s Water’ in Dutch.
