We had the brewery tour with 3 beer samples at the end. Our tour guide, Candy was very knowledgeable and friendly. The beer brewed in house tasted great and the food was also lovely!

So sorry, I didn't realize there was a question here for me. I do not know how far away that hotel is from the brewery. We stayed at the Hilton Reyjavik and took a cab so, really not sure. Sorry I'm not more help.
