Discover Icelandic craft beer on a unique “trip” around the country in our guided beer tasting!

This is not a tour, but a fantastic hour of entertainment and beer, as we sit you down at Icelandic Craft Bar, give you a nice selection of beer from each region in Iceland, tell you stories from each place, and introduce you to each beer and brewery. A must for beer geeks and novices alike!
The Golden Beer Circle is a beer tasting unlike any other. We tell you about each beer and each brewery, and give you an insight into the area it comes from with our trademark humor and storytelling prowess.

What’s included?

Included is a tasting tray (unlike any other, let me tell you) and a guided tour of the beers. You get great stories and jokes, as well as a wealth of information about Icelandic beer.

Please note

The legal drinking age in Iceland is 20 years, so that is the age limit for the beer tasting.

The tasting takes place in the Secret Cellar, at Laekjargata 6a, in downtown Reykjavik. You go in through Icelandic Craft Bar.

This experience must be booked at least 24 hours in advance.

Beer and folklore

What a great way to spend an evening! Got a tasty beer trip round Iceland with loads of stories and folklore. The beer was delicious and presented in a unique manor – my favourite was the Irish Red. Our host was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We even took his advice and picked up some local beer at the airport to enjoy back in Belfast. Staff at the bar were also very welcoming. I would definitely recommend this as a way to spend the evening.

Lots of fun.

Very informative fun and a great selection of Icelandic beers. Highly recommend not to be missed. I went with my partner and we met a lovely lady from America. Great way to meet people and learn about the Icelandic culture. Definitely a tour to book

Don’t pass it up!

We were late for our ‘tour’ b/c I misread the military time. Eyvindur was gracious enough to send an email and also wait for us. Did a special summarized version. He is super nice and funny! Tasted at least 6 different beers with a bit of history behind each one. We were informed of the breweries on the island as well.

Great beer and a great time

My husband and I signed up for this “tour” last week and were so glad we did! Eyvi was very responsive to our emails, and was such a great host with a lot of local knowledge. If you like beer and stories, consider signing up for this one!

Highly entertaining evening!

Had a fantastic evening exploring the “Golden Beer Circle” with the guys from Free Walking Tour Reykjavik. They were clearly very knowledgeable and passionate about Iceland and its beers. They presented lots of information about the beers and breweries, interspersed with historical titbits, Icelandic folk tales, humorous anecdotes and even a song!
