The imperial stout is fantastic. For my non-beer drinking wife, the bartender made a Hendricks and tonic, garnished with a perfectly cut cucumber and black pepper. Good attention to detail for a brewery. And, if I forgot to mention it, the imperial stout is fantastic!

We had such a great experience. We ordered flights and our bartender was so helpful and personable when recommending which beers to choose. You shouldn’t miss this place and I recommend the Eldfell

We stopped here after a hike. The staff (all locals) were very friendly, and even recommended another hike to us. They had around 12 beers on tap, 7 brewed in house.
