Their california steam beer is magical. This is an off the beaten path location, but the tasting room is a great stop and they are friendly.

This brewery doesn't look like much from the outside and is a bit off the beaten path, but the inside is lovely, the service was fantastic, the beer tasty. We had a great time and are glad we went!

We really enjoyed our visit to the brewery. Firstly the member of staff there (also a school teacher) was absolutely fantastic. We were stuck in traffic on Þjóðvegur for so long we actually arrived after they had closed and she still opened up for us!...More

The beer was good and the folks are friendly, but I don’t know how this is much different then most breweries. It is an out-of-the way location but not hard to find.
