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.

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

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!

3fourths  (1395) 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.

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.

Definitely the best place in Iceland. However, the prices were astronomical. $35 for a Westy 8 and $45 for a 12. I got a "cheap" local draft for $7.50. Huge selection though. So if you want to drink, go here.
