Line-up for the Party At the Top Of the World

Dear party pilots!
 
It is a mere 8 weeks or so until EVE Fanfest 2017 explodes into our lives again, and the Saturday night Party at the Top of the World on 8 April aims to be the best yet.
 
Taking place at the incredible Harpa, this wrap-up will provide the cherry on top of your Fanfest experience. Our confirmed and scheduled acts will light the party fuse, ignite the fire within and fight off any cold that Iceland can throw at you!
 
Hold the door, can this be true?! DJ Kristian Nairn (Hodor from Game Of Thrones) will be honoring us with a performance to mark his first visit to Fanfest.
 
Sharing the headline slot will be the illustrious Permaband, CCP’s in-house rock gods. You can expect a signature riotous performance of galactic proportions, worthy of Fanfest.
 
As if all of that wasn’t enough, we also have local party legend Hermigervill to keep pulses racing into the night.
 
Book your ticket HERE, keep your eyes peeled for more upcoming Fanfest 2017 news and announcements, and we’ll see you in Iceland in April!

Uncasking of the Fanfest beers

As you might know by now we've been brewing special Fanfest beers with our friends at Bryggjan Brewery, located below our Reykjavík headquarters. And in celebration and honour of the upcoming Eve Fanfest, Bryggjan Bistro & Brewery will host a special premiere and uncasking of the beer this Monday, April 18th. The beers will be available from 18:00 on extended Happy Hour prices until 20:00. Bryggjan is also a terrific bistro/restaurant and a local favorite amongs CCP devs in Iceland.
 
Join us next Monday for fresh new beer, juicy burgers and Fanfest warm-up. 
 
 
SAFETY OFF RED ALE
A classic red-ale.  Red ales are usually malt forward with a light bitterness to counter the malty sweetness. This red ale has roasted barley which gives the beer a slight chocolate /coffey flavour while the Caraaroma malt gives the beer a hints of caramel.  To counter this sweetness the beer has a variety of American hops. The beer clocks in around 5,5% giving it a high drinkability.
 
 
NEED REPS PILSNER
A Czech style pilsner with german noble hops. Pilsner malt is 95% of the malt bill giving the beer a biscuit-y flavour. This is a straight forward 5% pilsner for the people. Low in bitterness and high in drinkability.
 
 
HOP SUCCESS IPA
An American style IPA, packed with American hops.  This IPA is around 6% with Columbus, Citra, Centennial and Amarillo hops. The Citra and Amarillo give the beer a tropical aroma with a punch of bitterness in the end. The beer is also dryhopped with Amarillo and Ahtanum which increases the tropical citrusy aroma of the IPA.

Amazing Sisters Of EVE Tour!

 
We realize that not everyone coming to Iceland wants to discuss the intricacies of ship fittings or market dynamics. We invite players to bring their wives, husbands, boyfriends, girlfriends, or just friends, to accompany them on the trip to Iceland and participate in this excursion that takes place during the Friday of Fanfest. Not only that, but Sisters of EVE pass holders are invited to join in at the Party at the Top of the World on Saturday night!
 
And so, here it is, the Official 2016 Sisters Of EVE Tour!
 
There are Ice Tunnels and Ice Caves in various places around the world but there is nothing quite like Into the Glacier, either as high up in a remote area of an Ice Cap Glacier or on such a scale. Never before has anyone been able to see the beautiful blue ice at the heart of an Ice Cap Glacier. This will be the highlight of the day offering lunch with a glacially chilled beer inside the tunnel. Who else can say they’ve drank a beer inside a glacier?
 
In the morning we will leave from Harpan in direction of Mt. Esja, sightseeing from the bus for the first hour and a half passing majestic landscape headed for Borgarfjörður. Our first stop will be to Deildartunguhver, a very powerful geothermal spring area. From there we will continue on look to the magical Hraunfossar, the enchanting lava waterfalls and the cascades of Barnafoss. 
 
Before heading up to the glacier, we will stop at Húsafell for a short break while we get ready to board the Super Truck and Super Jeeps needed to get up onto the glacier and to the entrance of the ice tunnel. In the glacier we will go on a guided tour threading the ice tunnels and finishing with a once in a lifetime lunch and an ice cold beer inside the glacier. 
Then we head back down to Húsafell where our transport will be waiting for us to return to Reykjavík.
