Have you ever wanted to get lost in the world of Icelandic craft beer? Well, why not head out for what I call the Reykjavik Bar-muda triangle?
The craft beer scene in Iceland has been booming for a while and the selection of beer is growing by the week. The Bar-muda triangle is composed of three of my favorite craft beer bars in Reykjavik. The name came up as some friends and I wanted to get some of the best craft beer in Reykjavik. This trip turned out to form something of a triangle based on their locations (maybe a far stretch to call it a triangle, but it sounds great) and obviously people ended up "getting lost" in this mysterious heaven of craft beer.
Grab a pizza at The Pizzeria Without a Name (easily the best pizza in town) and then head upstairs to Mikkeller & Friends. (I'm not kidding, it's in the same house). Get a few tasters before deciding on some interesting brew - the selection changes all the time so I cannot recommend you what to try - just let your senses guide you through the selection.
Continue to Microbar where you might just end up giving that Icelandic sour ale a try - and yes I know, it's not for everyone but at least you'll have something to talk about.
After Microbar, continue to Skulí and sample a Úlfur-Úlfur (double IPA for those hardcore hoppy fans) or an imperial stout called Surtur #38 or #23. These beers are pretty hardcore but an amazing tasting experience.
By the end of your imperial stout, you might just have lost a member or two from the group, or lost yourself entirely in the Icelandic world of craft beer - there is much to like!
