DuffMan  (265) the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta | April 25, 2014
Easy access for the tourist, as it is located in the heart of downtown. Pluses: a fair number of Icelandic beers in single bottles, great for the ticker who doesnĺt have the time or inclination to visit bars. Minuses: nothing is refrigerated, prices are not significantly cheaper than what youĺll find in bars and restaurants, and the staff can be described at best as aloof.

Small selection of craft Icelandic beer amid a sea of macro cans. Warm shelves, some old looking bottles. Worth a look if youĺre in central Reykjavik but not essential during a beer visit since almost everything here can be found at bars.

The bottle shop right outside our hotel. Singles were available of about 25+ difft Icelandic beers, and well-known imports. The staff was very helpful friendly. Not sure about the prices but felt okay.

Yes it is a state-run liquor store. That is all they have in this country. Their rules, we have to play by them. But it is in the centre, next to the Micro Bar and City Center Hotel, it has about 20 drinkable local beers and that is none too bad for now. The alternative would be pals of Budweiser and that would be unthinkable.

Itĺs a liquor store. Run by the state. Good selection of Icelandic beers, and some foreign brands.
Next door from Micro Bar, which is convenient. Iĺm told there is better stocked Vinbudin stores elsewhere in the city, but this is the only one I visited.

The staff is helpful, but didnĺt seem to know too much about their products.

Kind of tough for me to rate this, as itĺs the only beer store that Iĺve visited thus far in Iceland. It seemed to have a fair variety of Icelandic beers, especially their macros. Prices were way better than bars. I guess the best selling point is that Micro Bar and the Iceland Bar are both about a block away.

This was the only place I could find in downtown Reykjavik that sold half way decent beer. Had to wait in line as there was a festival going on and it was the only place to buy beer that wasnĺt 2%...however, they could only sell warm due to local bars not wanting them to take customers away. Picked up half the top 10 Icelandic beers here, but you have to ask for the Viking stout...clerks are very helpful and will take you around if you have a list. Selection is not great at the downtown location, but the service is excellent.

Icelandĺs monopoly when it comes to buy alcohol. Nice store but extremely expensive.

Sometimes you can find good beers in Vinbud, but in rural areas they really have a limited amount of beer types on stock. Mostly lagers. Its expensive. And the staff doesnĺt really know what they are selling.
