“Great beer and staff”
Review of Micro Bar

Micro Bar
Ranked #4 of 38 Nightlife in Reykjavik

Reviewed 17 July 2014

This was my first time checking out Icelandic beer and it did not disappoint. We tasted both the IPA, Pale Ale, Smoked Imperial Stout and Wheat Beer. The wheat was only alright, but the rest were excellent. I highly recommend the sampler tray, which will get you 170ml from each of the ten beers on tap. The guy at the bar was friendly and could tell us beer nerds something interesting about the beer as well.

Be sure to check out the folder which describes their unlisted beer, even if you don't buy something there are some great descriptions in there, ie. the Watt Dicky (an 35% IPA masquerading as a spirit). There are many bottled beers available as well, including a great Red Pale Ale.

We were caught in a heavy shower and stopped here to dry off.

We soon took to the relaxed surroundings and noticed all the beers on tap were unique to the bar. You can try them all using a sampler tray, but being a huge stout fan, I plumped for this. The bar staff were nice and informed me the beer is brewed by local farmers. If you like your real ales, this will be right up your street.

Fantastic bar. It may be a Micro Bar now but this will become one of the places to go in Reykjavik - go now before it becomes very popular. Good mix of people and beers in a comfortable, friendly environment. The 5 or 10 beer tasting platter is well worth experiencing.

Many icelandic micro beers on tap. They had an icelandic test platter where you got either 5 or 10 different local brews in 20 cl glasses. Good selction of international micro beers on flask. Rather small pub with funny wall paintings.

For beer lovers it can be a nice visit because of the wide selection of icelandic beers but it´s also expensive. The bar is a small one so the name is perfect.
