Dive into the delicious world of craft beer with this tour at the Bryggjan Brugghus microbrewery on the Reykjavik harbor. Beer enthusiasts and those seeking a fun and informative excursion in the city should book this tour now.

You’ll begin at the Bryggjan Brugghus brewery on the Reykjavik harbor. It’s in a prime waterfront location between the Reykjavik Maritime Museum and Aurora Reykjavik - The Northern Lights Center.

When you arrive at the brewery, you’ll greet the expert leading the tour. Then, you’ll begin your guided tour of the inner workings of Reykjavik’s first microbrewery. The legal drinking age in Iceland is 20, so the minimum age for this excursion is the same.

The guide will teach you about the extensive brewing process behind Bryggjan beer and offer insights into Icelandic beer culture. 

Bryggjan Brugghus brews various beers on-site, including IPAs, lagers, pale ales, and seasonal beers. They have 12 craft beers on tap, which you can taste.

Some beers change with the seasons, and others evolve as the brewers perfect their craft by tweaking the beer-making process or ingredients. Whichever beers you try, you can expect a tasty experience reflecting the creativity, care, and time that goes into every brew.

Bryggjan Brugghus’s lager is made with German yeast, Czech Saaz, and German Magnum hops to create a classic 5% ABV beer. Their American pale ale uses Amarillo, Cascade, Centennial, and Columbus hops, producing a fruity flavor and a 5.2% ABV brew.

Whether you visit at Christmas, Easter, or another time of year, you’ll also find special beers that vary with the seasons and events. Jola, a seasonal Christmas beer, and Omnom, a stout made with the flavors of a local chocolate business, are two examples of the unique flavors crafted by Bryggjan Brugghus’s experienced brewers.

After your educational and enjoyable tour, you can continue your day in Reykjavik. Some may stay longer at Bryggjan Brugghus, indulging in their favorite beers and soaking up the welcoming atmosphere.

Those who have worked up an appetite from the beer tasting might wish to have a meal at the highly-rated Bryggjan Brugghus restaurant for an additional cost. Team up your favorite beer with steak, seafood, vegetarian meals, salads, or desserts for a combination guaranteed to tantalize your tastebuds.

The restaurant uses fresh, local ingredients to create flavorsome meals that you won’t want to miss. Sampling menus are also available for those seeking a taste of the incredible variety in smaller amounts. They could be the best way to finish happy and satisfied without feeling overly full.
