Working With Norwegians

Norwegian Drinking Culture

To say Norwegians don’t party hard would be like saying the tax is only a little high in Norway.

It would be quite the understatement.

No, in fact Norwegians enjoy a drink (or 15) and those drunken adventures often cross over into business life as well.

With the cost of alcohol in Norway so high, there’s a local expression that covers their approach to drinking quite well “Being half drunk is a waste of money.”

In Norway they don’t go halfway when it comes to drinking, more like all the way and then some.
