If you’re from the states and have gone on a 100 tours, this one will be the best of all. You walk in and instantly get a pint of their gold lager. Then as the history of the place goes along you’ll get more and...More

Great non traditional brewery tour. Our guide Sylvia was knowledgeable and funny. Beer sampling was plentiful. You do a short brewery tour, but this is more of an Icelandic Beer history tour. We had a great time!

Silvia was outstanding! As our host she not only took us through the history of alcohol in Iceland, she had us rolling on the floor laughing! Not to mention we tasted a vast array of Icelandic beverages too. A must do!

Full marks to Sylvia for keeping us entertained with stories of prohibition. Starts with a full bottle of the "gold" award winning regular beer,no tasting measures here. Fabulous evening, made friends for life, or at least a great couple of hours. Thanks for the trip...More

I did this tour as a solo (introverted) traveler one evening, and I had such a blast. Our guide, Sylvia, was so entertaining and fun, and we were laughing the whole evening (and not just because of the alcohol). The sample sizes were pretty generous...More

The comedy was ok, fun to see a part of the brewery but sorry to say the beers were not at all good or innovative, we recieved mainly lager types and some haf some alcohol shots in them, it felt little about the beer.

We had Anna from Greece and she was informative and entertaining. The emphasis is more on testing beers and the strange history of beer in Iceland. Not so much on touring the factory. It was a great time, if you are a beer aficionado this...More
