If you want local come here. Knowledgeable bar tender and at least to kegs that couldn’t be found anywhere else. A little slow and quiet when we stopped.

Wonderful beer selection if you can find the place. It's tucked away in the back of the bar district in almost like a little hidden square area. Bartenders were not chatty, but the service was good.

Skuli was standing-room only when U.S. band Soccer Mommy performed as part of Airwaves. At other times, it was possible to get near the bar, which featured 12 craft brews, from porters to IPAs. I suspect that this bar is popular year-round.

Stopped here for a couple of drinks and to warm up! It’s a very cosy, friendly bar with some great beer, cards for playing games and a retro Pac-Man arcade game!! Highly recommended!

We stopped here to try a few Icelandic beers. The choices of styles was varied, which we greatly appreciated. There were a few IPAs, some porters, lager, pilsner, pale ale, imperial stout.

Nice, well-stocked bar with experienced bartenders and a crowd that was clearly there for the relaxed vibe and great cocktails. Fantastic location. A great place for either escaping the crowds alone or to bring a group of friends.

If you’re looking for a friendly bar with just the essentials (read: no kitchen, but food trucks in the winter) then look no further than Skuli. The bartenders take good care of their patrons and are happy to recommend drinks to those who aren’t familiar...More

Fantastic hidden gem. Grabbed a "2 Bun Combo" from the food truck and headed inside for some delicious craft beers. Snorri was an excellent choice. Friendly bartender. Warm, cozy place to hang. Games, too. Highly recommend.
