Well Google says Iberian people are people from Spain and Portugal, since Spain and Portugal are on the Iberian peninsula.

Well if Spain and Portugal are on thee Iberian peninsula, why was the Kingdom of Iberia where present day Georgia is? On the other side of Europe.

Can someone explain how Spain and Portugal got named thee Iberian peninsula if the Iberian kingdom was on the eastern side of Europe?

Because it is on the Iberian Peninsula. It was named that by the Phoenicians, and that is how the word was translated by the Greeks in around 500 BCE. It is the same name that was originally used for the Ebro River, but over the thousands of years both have shifted.

The one in modern Georgia is named similarly, and also from the Greeks. But it morphed from the Armenian word for the region, which was "Iverk".

Might as well ask why you have the Georgian people way out in Eurasia, when the state of Georgia is in the Southwestern US.

Isn't that a Cuban beer or drink or something?

Is it an actual beer or like Malta Patooey?

Non-alcoholic yet tastes like questionable beer? Fuck that!

If I want a malt beverage, bitch; I'll get some Schlitz Malt Liquor Bull or Mickey's or something. IF I want one.

You also have a Galicia in Spain and one in somewhere around Ukraine/Belarus/Poland, the kingdom of Galicia-Volhynia and in a similar area the Kingdom of Galicia and Lodomeria
