Reykjavik Beer & Booze Tour

What you'll do

Reykjavik Beer & Booze Tour One of the best ways to get a feel for a new city is to sit down and drink with the locals. By joining our Reykjavik Beer & Booze Tour, you will experience an expert local who knows how to entertain as well as educate you about the fun history of beer & alcohol in Iceland. At the start of your tour, you will be able to choose between tasting nine unique Icelandic craft beers, or those who are not into beer will not be left out, and have the option of trying some delicious Icelandic gin, vodka, or a few variations of our national drink, Brennivín.  If none of those take your fancy, then a glass of wine can certainly be ordered at each place (but it will not be Icelandic, of course, as there are not a lot of grapes that grow over here) This tour is guaranteed to leave you with a warm buzz, and with the prices for alcohol like they are in Iceland, you can be sure you get value for money by joining our tour. The Reykjavik Beer & Booze Tour is your chance to get to know the best Icelandic craft beers or spirits for you to enjoy while in Iceland.    Did you know beer was banned in Iceland for 74 years?

He gave great insights into Iceland's beer history, local customs, and the growing Icelandic microbrew scene. He also gave us great recommendations for restaurants to try while in Iceland. Highly recommend this tour for any beer lover.“ „My daughter and I had a wonderful experience on this tour. Our guide, Astor shared a thorough and interesting history of the Beer culture in Iceland. The locations and samples covered the entire spectrum of Icelandic Beers. We even re-visited the locations from the tour because they were so good.“ „We went on the beer tour our first night in Reykjavik and had a great time! It was the perfect way to acclimate to the city and learn so much more than we would have otherwise. We'll definitely do it again if we make it back here!“ „Spent a few hours on the walking beer tour in Reykjavik. Valur was an outstanding guide! Very knowledgeable of the spirit industry in Iceland from ancient brewing to the new explosion of microbrewery beers. I'm not the biggest beer connoisseur and there was such a wide variety to sample, even I enjoyed it. I also had a chance to sample/compare Brennivín and Hvönn... Lots of history and cultural stories included. I swear I was seeing elves by the end of the tour! Highly recommended!“ „We had a great time taking a beer tour with Valur last Monday! He took us to several local spots, told us all about the history of beer in Iceland, and introduced us to several tasty local brews. We even found our favorite brew through this tour which we continued ordering the rest of the trip. Definitely worth the money, especially since the flight of beer is about $30 on its own, so take the tour and get plenty of beer plus a knowledgeable guide for your money!“
