“Good beer selection”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

The selection of local and world beers is very good. Ideally visit during happy hour as prices, like everywhere in Reykjavik, are quite high. A good paddle selection available if you are unsure of your choice.

“Wonderful and friendly”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

Once we found the micro bar, we didn't want to leave! Such a wide variety of ales from all over the world (We live in Cheshire and one of the most popular ales is actually a recipe from Bury!) Very relaxing atmosphere and friendly bar staff, who are also very informative on the ales they sell

“Cozy atmosphere with excellent beer!”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Located in a hotel lobby, this micro bar has the best beer around. We visited multiple times during our stay and enjoyed a number of their delicious beer selections. Their "wedding beer" may be gone now but be sure and try their amber and dark beers as well. The beer prices were typical for Reykjavik but the beer at Micro Bar is actually worth it!

“One for the beer afficionados”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

Amazing selection of great beer. It felt like a locals bar - I think we may have been the only tourists there when we visited. The atmosphere of the bar was a little cold, compared to a cosy pub, but I think that is true of many craft beer bars.

Worth a visit for a more left field beer.

“Great beer and staff”
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.
