The best beer in Reykjavik

Reykjavik is famous for its vibrant nightlife. There are loads of places that play all the latest music really and are filled with trendy people having the time of their life. I however absolutely detest this. I hate loud nightclubs and bars and I dislike intensely to be around a lot of drunk people. I want to be able to sit down with a really nice beer and have an intelligent conversation. Fortunately, there are at least two places in central Reykjavik that are really close to each other that combine beer from microbreweries and a cozy atmosphere. Yes I am a terrible snob that is heavily into the expensive micro brewed beer.

These two places I would recommend are Skúli Craft Bar and Micro Bar, both in the center of Reykjavik. They both serve Icelandic craft beers. The beers I would suggest you try are the following:

  • Úlfur IPA beer (get it at Skúli Craft Bar)
  • Kaldi Black IPA (get it at Micro bar
  • Gæðingur IPA (get it at Micro bar)

On balance I would have to say that I like Skúli Craft bar, since it isn´t as noisy as Micro bar. But they will both serve thirsty visitors to Reykjavik well. Skál!
