If you find yourself in Reykjavik, this is a must hit. I was there for 4 days, went to this place 3 of those days. On tap they have a great selection of Icelandic craft beer. But if that doesn't suit you, or you're looking to venture out, they have a great bottle selection behind the counter, and even further, they have a cellar list with some amazing brews. For instance, while there and chatting up the bartender, he informed me he had just gotten in some Logsdon Peche 'n Brett. I promptly laid down my krona and scooped ups bottle. The guys behind the counter and incredibly knowledgeable and very eager to talk beer with you. A good spot for beer folks.

I had 24 hours in Iceland. I asked for a recomendation for good bar with good beers in Reykjavik. I hit gold. This is not the most atmospheric place on earth, as I'm used to English pubs and a few US bars but if you're in Iceland, check it out. The beer selection is amazing.It rivals most US bars, including the BBC chain, just to show I'm nor completely biassed. There were 8 taps of local beers, none of which I knew. I asked for a recommendation based on my preference and was not disappointed. After a couple of brews, I left with a T-shirt and a couple of bottles of 'Lava'. It will be the first bar I go to next time in Iceland.

Reykjavik is known for having a lackluster beer scene, combine that with prices of over $10 a pint for a crappy lager and your expectations would be pretty damn low too. However! Mirco Bar is a gift from the beer gods.

Well over 60 bottles from the US (Sierra Nevada, Rouge) Denmark (Mikkeller) Belgium (Delrium, the usual trappists, Rodenbach, Drie Fonteinen, Cantillon, yes Cantillon in Iceland, and even all the Westys) and some fantastic Iceland craft (Olvisholt). On tap they had about 10ish mostly Icelandic craft brews for a reasonable price. $8-9 for Lava a local Imperial Stout that was fantastic. Even the bottles were priced great my and friend I split a 75cl bottle of Iris for around 3.800 ISK around $30 a real treat.

The bartenders were all extremely kind and outgoing, telling what was upcoming and coming in Icelandic beer scene as well as stating their jealousy of mine ease of getting some American brews. This place is tiny, only a few small tables and fills quickly so get there early especially on a weekend. They do offer some small plates food wise I didn't try anything so can't comment on that front.

Overall one of the most memorable bars I've ever come across. Two Americans drinking Cantillon next to a German couple drinking Sierra Nevada Pale Ale all while in the northern most capital in the world.

Micro Bar is a small place that's connected to a hotel lobby that we randomly found one afternoon walking through Reykjavik. They have a nice selection of Icelandic beers on tap (including a smoked RIS called Lava which I found very tasty). Their bottle selection consists of a very good sampling of Mikkeler beers and other Euro breweries, as well as a few American ones. The guy working (Steinn), was really helpful and talked at length about all of the Icelandic beers to help me make my decision (I asked him that I wanted to try an Icelandic beer and if he could recommend one). Prices, as far as Icelandic standards, are extremely reasonable, especially given the quality of the beers they are selling.
