I have been on manay, many brewery tours across the UK and also in Europe, Canada, US & India. However, for entertainment value this was far away the best I've ever been on! In terms of the technical detail you get with most brewery tours, this was brief and to the point and in fact quite short. However, where it excelled was in the storytelling, the engagement and the practical exercises involving BEER! The host Olaf (a girl) was simply excellent. Entertaining, occasionally laddish, but extremely informed and engaging. She made the whole session what it was. This was my second year in a row I've been to Reykjavik at Xmas and if I go back next year, this will be top of my list to go again. THIS IS A MUST DO TRIP IN REYKJAVIK CANNOT RECOMMEND MORE HIGHLY.

A great time was had by all. This brewery knows how to host its guests. The brewery is small by world standards. The beer is superb. I learned a lot. The testing glass was bottomless. (eat before the tour.) We made some great friends over great beer. at the end, we had the driver deliver us to a local club afterwards. .

If you like beer, this tour is a MUST. The host was informative and extremely entertaining at the same time. And all the beer you can drink? An excellent way to start a night on the weekend!
