We stopped here to kill time before our ferry. The bartenders were very fun and helpful in both beer selection and chatting about local customs and history. Relaxing way to spend an hour or so during a rainy day.

Brothers Brewery is a great place to grab a beer on Vestmannaeyjar. The service is great and the beers were much more reasonably priced than in Reykjavik.

The imperial stout is fantastic. For my non-beer drinking wife, the bartender made a Hendricks and tonic, garnished with a perfectly cut cucumber and black pepper. Good attention to detail for a brewery. And, if I forgot to mention it, the imperial stout is fantastic!
