Returned here two years after last visit, they still have pretty much the same taplist as far I remember. The bottle offerings are more diverse now, presumably due to the opening of the Mikkeller and Friends in town. Still probably the best place in town.
Weird place in a hotel lobby, very small and always crowded so nowhere to sit. The taps are mostly from the brewery which shares an owner and don’t seem to rotate much. Great bottle menu if you like Mikkeller, probably even better than Mikkellerbar! Disappointed by the lack of Icelandic craft on tap and bottle.
When I was there, unfortunately they had a tap takeover by a British brewery. But still lots of good local stuff in bottles. Typically all Icelandic taps apparently. Lacking a bit in atmosphere as it is in a corner of a hotel lobby. Service is fast friendly and helpful. Definitely worth a visit.
Probably the best beer place in Reykjavik, situated on the ground level at Center Hotel, small bar with 8 great taps,one offs and special brews for this bar only. Walls are decorated by cartoonist Hugleikur Dagsson, big mountainous wall murals with a few classic details, well worth the visit alone. The service was top at all my 3 visits, I even got to buy the last bottle of MIB, Icelands first gypsy brew, a delicious DIPA, served by one of the brewers himself.
The creme de la creme place to hit when in Reykjavik. 10 beers on tap now, featuring a wide variety of all Icelandic beers. You can do a flight of 5 for 2500ISK or try all 10 for 4500ISK -- that’s some serious price gouging, but this is Iceland. Extensive bottle selection as well, some of which can be very pricy. Staff are helpful and friendly. A must-hit when in Reykjavik.
Great service, great selection. And sticks to it´s principles with no beers from the largest brewerys in Iceland. Scenery from local artist and comedian Hugleikur Dagsson for added value. A must stop when you visit Reykjavik
Micro Bar is the ground level bar for one of the city’s finer hotels and offers entrances from two streets. The bar area is small yet boasts on of Reykjavik’s largest and most diverse beer selections, if not the largest. The staff is friendly and attentive and even included a local brewer on one of our visits moonlighting as a bar tender. This is a must visit in town.
The first Micro brewery bar in Iceland. Very good selection both on tap and bottle. Only place in Iceland where you can get a wide selection of local brewery North Icelandic micro brewery Gędingur. Staff very informative. A must see for beer enthusiasts.
Small place, full but not overly crowded when we visited on National Beer Day. At least four brewers from three countries were at the bar drinking, not including the barman who is one of the owners/brewers of Gęšingur. Ten or so beers on tap, and a very large bottle list. They had the mysterious beer with whale testicles smoked over a sheep shit fire, which was one of the best whale testicle beers I’ve ever had. Good vibe. Attached to the City Center Hotel, so you can enter from either side. Well worth a stop.
