A small brewery in Finland has launched a NATO-themed beer to mark the Nordic country’s bid to join the military alliance. Olaf Brewing’s OTAN lager features a blue label with a cartoon version of a beer-drinking medieval knight in metal armor emblazoned with NATO’s compass symbol.
… The beer’s name is a play on the Finnish expression “Otan olutta,” which means “I’ll have a beer,” and the French abbreviation for NATO, which is “OTAN.” The North Atlantic Treaty Organization has two official languages, English and French. The CEO of the brewery describes the new lager as having “a taste of security, with a hint of freedom.”
… Finland shares an 830-mile border with Russia.
