3fourths  (1273) Boulder, Colorado | December 7, 2013| Updated December 8, 2013
Centrally located and beer-focused, so certainly worthy of a visit, but I found the atmosphere cramped and stuffy when it was packed on a Saturday night, with a lot of people wearing perfume and cologne. Bartenders are nice and knowledgeable but I think the operation was suffering. Some of the bottles seemed old, and many on the back shelf seemed to have been there for a long time collecting dust. The glassware was almost all dirty and smudged which didn’t make me want to stick around. And of the 8 or so taps, only 1 was something that was un-spiced, in good shape and interesting. This is the current top spot for Reykjavik on Ratebeer, but I put 73, K Bar and Hlemmur Square above Micro Bar for most-enjoyed spots in town. YMMV.

Review from 2013, wherein they had a few Icelandic micros, which was why I wanted to go there. That was cool. All foreigners in the place, mostly American. Worth the stop - there isn’t really a destination beer hunting place in Iceland so this should be included on your circuit.

I came here on my first stop of my Icelandic beer tour and wasn’t disappointed. They had eight taps of Icelandic beer, though two were unfortunately out. The bartender, Steiinn, was so nice, helpful, and knowledgeable. I couldn’t have asked any more from an Icelandic beer bar.

Nice to have somewhere in Iceland offering samplers. Modern and pretty small, but quite welcoming.

Kind of minimalistic and a bit sterile bar. Great selection of microbrew, but not the best selection of Icelandic brews. A bit disappointing for me that the selection of Danish micros was better than Islandic. Still a fairly nice selection, but no Borg available here. Nice and friendly service. Both times I visited most of the guest seemed to be tourist, atmosphere was okay, but nothing special.

Small place in the main floor of a boutique hotel in downtown Reykjavik, cool modern design elements, comfortable. Excellent tap list of micros only, and even better bottle list filled with carefully chosen quality imports. Pricy bottles, but that’s Iceland so get over it. But by far the reason this place is a clear #1 in my books is the hospitality shown to us by Stein the bartender and Arnie the owner. Their shared passion for craft beer and their incredible generosity and hospitality made our evening truly unforgettable. I can’t recommend this place highly enough!

A fantastic bar with a great selection of beers, with Icelandic micros being well represented. The bar is not the most spacious so it can fill up quite quickly but it seems to get quieter later on in the evenings. Located near the lobby of a hotel, it’s probably the best hotel bar you’re likely to encounter.

In any European city this selection of beers would be special. In Iceland, 66 degrees north of the equator and on the way to nowhere, and with alcohol taxed into the next century it is absolutely extraordinary. Good Icelandic representation, good information, best place in the nation. (So far.) Part of but unrelated to the City Center Hotel, for those who don’t want a long walk home.

Craft beers have not caught on in Iceland like elsewhere in the Nordic world. This bar seems to be the only game in town. Nice selection of Icelandic micro brew on tap plus many bottles from brew dog and mikkeler.

Didn’t even realize this place was in my hotel lobby when I booked, but that’s awfully convenient. Decent hotel as well, but the tap water in the room is the most sulfuric I’ve ever witnessed, it’s like a rotten egg bomb every time I showered or ran the faucet. Tap water in the Micro Bar was fine. Anyway, talked at length to both bartenders on a very slow night (I was the only one there for ~2 hours), great guys. Tried 3 of the Gaedingur brews (since the same guy owns both places) and a few sips of several other things. Lots of Mikkeller, Evil Twin, and To Ol in bottles, and even Westy 8 and 12 (at around $40/bottle, though). Probably not the best place in town to try a lot of Icelandic beer, but definitely worth a visit.
