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 Gæðingur. 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.

If you like beer and are in Reykjavik then you need to stop at the micro bar. Great little place, and has a lot of rare brews. Just be prepared to open your wallet, I’m pretty sure I saw a few on the board that were $50. Probably the best selection in Iceland thought.

This bar has the best selection in Iceland I encountered. A good menu of local and exotic brews. This place is small and the line can get long. Oh...that bottle of speedway stout $45+. Brace yourself for Icelandic brew prices. The off liscence is a few doors down. Hit that early so you have a night cap.

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.

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.

Its one of the few places you can enjoy real craft beer in Reykjavik.Local beers on tap and nice selection of international bottled ones.The only disappointing is that its too small(its actually in the back of a Hotels entrance)and that its expensive,but its a must visit when you re in town.

Small place as part of a Reykjavik hotel. Rather modern look that did not appeal to us. Oh well. Bartender was helpful in recommending some local brews. Had a couple of nice Gaedingur here. Good selection of mostly Scandinavian craft beers. Prices are astronomical, but that’s Iceland for you.

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.

Good bar, surprising to see so many California selections (Green Flash!). Bartenders know beer. Weak on Icelandic selections while I was there.

Best place in Iceland. The local microbrews must be tried, and this is the only place I know of in downtown Reykjavik to do so. It’s also usually stocked with plenty of local people, which is a good sign in a tourist town.
