Full description
Experience one of the best ways to get a feel for a new city as you sit down and have a few beers with the locals. Get a heads-up on the best Icelandic craft beers to enjoy on your trip with this beer and booze lovers' tour.  Discover how Icelandic people have a short but proud history of making beer (they need to put their lovely, freshwater to good use). They'll fill you in on the history of beer from the Vikings, right through to the resurgence of microbreweries today. Did you know that beer was once banned in Iceland for 74 years? Thankfully, this is not the case anymore! Learn all about this bizarre story, and their unique drinking culture on the tour. The beer tasting tour is guaranteed to leave you with a warm buzz. This isn’t your average pub crawl: visit some favorite bars in Reykjavik where you’ll get the chance to sample 10 different Icelandic beers, or if you prefer, 5 different varieties of snaps and spirits. You might even be able to sample a brand new craft beer from an Icelandic microbrewery that isn’t available on the market yet. The group sizes are small so you can chat about not just beer, but all things Icelandic. It’s the perfect way to kick off your night in Reykjavik or make the most of your stopover.  You can even pick your guide's brain about the best place to eat after the tour or where to party if your night is heading that way.

Our guide was very friendly and welcoming! We visited three microbrewery and tried a range of drinks. Our guide told us lots of information not only about the beers in Iceland but Icelandic history. I would definitely recommend this tour, its a great way to see the city especially if you enjoy tasting different beers.

It was a very nice tour on a Monday! evening. “Asthor” gave a lot of info about the local brews and would never offer a beer he didn’t try himself we had laughs and beers and in the end time just went by so fast. I can recommend this tour and would to it again !
