King Christian IV was neither the first nor the last person to take an interest in Danish beer as an objection of taxation. At a personal level the famous Danish King had a great affection for beer. The Renassaince had arrived with large quantities of food and drink, and the abundant and often very salty food required the intake of vast amounts of liquid. Between 10 and 30 litres of beer a day was the standard during this period, which has been described as “The Great Nordic Inebration”.
