Neat atmosphere in a basement pub. We did the flight of 10 drafts, all local. Delicious and a fun afternoon stop!

My husband wanted to come here for the big selection of beers. They had lots of options and the bartender was helpful in answering questions. Cool vibe in place. I personally don't drink beer so I got a cider... HUGE MISTAKE. I made the mistake...More

Awesome little place. Lots of good beer. Very expensive (as is most everything in Iceland though); $54 for a 6pack If Stone IPA. Oh well. Super fun time. Check it out.

Nice little spot with a relaxed atmosphere. We opted for the selection of 10 sample size beers. You're given a scoring card to rank the beers based on your preferences. This was entertaining and enjoyable. Prices are reasonable for the area.

We do not serve food but there are some option for snacks (small bags of chips) to have with a beer or two.
