Boozy Yank mil­i­tary drink Reyk­javik dry

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

YANK sol­diers drank pubs and bars in Ice­land’s cap­i­tal Reyk­javik DRY in a sin­gle week­end.

The huge booze ses­sion hap­pened after the largest NATO mil­i­tary ex­er­cise since the Cold War – called Tri­dent Junc­ture 18.

A “sig­nif­i­cant num­ber” of Amer­i­can mil­i­tary per­son­nel drank pubs and bars in Reyk­javik com­pletely clear of beer.

Bars were forced to make emer­gency beer runs un­der the on­slaught of thirsty sailors and marines.

Beer is ex­pen­sive in Reyk­javik and typ­i­cally sells for around £6.
