Visited during my trip to Iceland, early May 2008. I visited both the Kringlan and Austurstreiti locations. The Kringlan certainly had the best selection, with what appeared to be all Icelandic beers that were being sold at the time. The selection at Austurstreiti was less, though you would still be able to get a decent selection of Icelandic beers, and is far more convenient if you do not have your own transportation. Overall, I found both shops to be clean, well layed out, and with helpful folks wandering the store. I have seen far worse state run liquor stores in my days!

Visited the store in Kringlan, Reykjavik in March 2011. The staff was friendly, the man at the cashier took the time to tell me about the Icelandic beer scene. The store itself was clean and reminded of the Swedish monopoly Systembolaget or the Finnish equivalent. The supply was good, but not in the class with the Swedish monopoly. Still a lot of beers from Iceland and Faroe Islands that I had never seen before. Prices were lower than expected, a bottle of lvisholt Lava did cost 589 ISK, thats about 5 USD. I had a rental car, and the store was easy to find from the central Reykjavik. Free parking.

I have visited the Vin B in Kringlan several times, since I live nearby. It has the best selection of all those around the area. The ambiance is pleasant and sophisticated; everything is clearly labeled and spread out. I have not had much need for service, but the register staff has been friendly enough. For Iceland it has a pretty good selection, with all the beers of the North-Atlantic area, and a reasonable amount from international locations. Im not sure how to rate the value, since all the Vin B are the same, and the government has a monopoly on alcohol. Suffice to say that liquor is absurdly expensive, and wine and beer are not cheap, but are reasonable enough to buy.

The Kringlan shop is a must, use bus or taxi. All the Icelandic beers available, even six from the Faroe Islands as well as imports from around the globe. With the Krone gone down the drain, it is fairly cheap. Bright and airy shop, similar to Systembolaget in Sweden.

Interesting beer stor chain run by the government. And yes indeed Vin B in Kringlan is the very best in Reykjavk. Good international selection. Have the big money ready though as it really costs.

well, I see that austinpowers has been in Iceland, First of all, let me state that the best Vin B is in Kringlan, the main shopping centre in Reykjavik. Thats the biggest Vn B and they have the best beer selection. Leffe, Hoegaarden, Duvel from Belgium, Gaffel, Bitburger and other from germany, a very broad international selection but mainly lagers. The service is often terrible, and the price is like anything else in iceland, horrible. I just put this rate in to suggest Kringlan instead of Austurstrti, since Austurstrti is one of the smallest Vn B
