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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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!
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!
