Our host shared the beers to taste with the foods. The food was a unique experience for me and it was delicious. The presentation was fabulous. Our host also shared stories of his experiences living in Iceland and answered our many questions. We were seated with other people traveling and got to make new friends, as well. We were able to get up close to the brewing process.

Fantastic! Experience worth every penny! Food goes perfect with all the beer tasting. We had candy as our host she was awesome with her knowledge of the food and beer/ larger. You get to meet lots of new people from all over the world. Highly recommended this friendly place. You can come as a group couple or single person.

Great Restaurant, Great Beer, Tasty Food

The Bryggjan Brugghús is a great venue, and our hostess Candy was amazing. She led us through the tasting, then spent a good amount of time just sitting and chatting with us about Icelandic history, culture, and her personal stories/experiences/opinions. The bar has an assortment of great tasting beers that are brewed in-house. If you don't get this deal, the bar does a tour and tasting every day - that being said, you won't get the delicious paired food. Keep in mind a few things: this is tapas being served, so you might need to snack before or after the "tour". You can also order more food at the restaurant. You can also order more beer (note that beer is expensive in Iceland, and the price increases by alcohol content. Make use of "Happy Hour"). Highly recommend this deal.
