First up on this newscast: Iceland is officially off the grey list! Next on the roster, big groups of protesters gathered in Reykjavík to rally against the tough abortion laws recently ratified in Poland. We also discuss a small family brewery that is currently under police investigation after they announced publicly that they wanted to sell their beer online. Weirdly enough, Icelanders can’t buy their beer but foreigners can. This and more with Valur Grettisson and Pollý who comes to you straight from the countryside.

Note: Due to the effect the Coronavirus is having on tourism in Iceland, it’s become increasingly difficult for the Grapevine to survive. If you enjoy our content and want to help the Grapevine’s journalists do things like eat and pay rent, please consider joining our High Five Club.
