This was a fun tour! I wouldn't call it a brewery tour per say, but neither does the title. Once we arrived, there was a 12oz beer for everyone, and the drinks just kept coming. We learned a lot about the history of alcohol in Iceland, which is very entertaining. Very social event, and I absolutely recommend for the solo traveler or group. Be prepared to make friends! And drink a lot of beer! Shot of Brennevin to end the night is a great idea as well.
Must take this tour!! Fun and informative with a great, lively tale on the history of beer in Iceland. Olaf, the tour guide and hostess was charismatic, dynamic and incredibly entertaining! Plenty of samples provided.
Olaf made this tour terrific, informative and funny! Beer was excellent too.
Oh dear god.......lol......this is not your normal brewery tour expect to get drunk. We had a guy called Happy he was fantastic highly recommend ......the history of Iceland drinking problems is great and this was better than just walking around a brewery for an hour.
Excellent , our guide was a quick witted intellect , The beer tasting was the emphasis , making the tour properly short . Do it !
Our guide was Silvia, we had a great time she is awesome. Not your typical brew tour like in the states but in my opinion was better. Spent more time learning history of alcohol in Iceland and drinking generously sized samples of most if not all there beers instead of walking around the facility.
This turned out to be really fun and the tastings were great!
The best and most funny beer tasting that we 4 from Ålesund have ever done!!
We have been on many brewery tours and this was by far the BEST!
Awesome tour. All the beer you could drink and a history lesson about the prohibition in Iceland. The presenter was hilarious. We had such a good time we wanted to go again before we left Iceland but did not have the time.
Sylvia was hilarious, excellent and lovely. The tasting was more than a tasting, it was one can after another. So, everyone was great friends in short order. Suggestion, take this tour early in your visit to meet some great people and share your visit.
Fantastic experience! Our tour guide Jarpruour was funny and very personable! You definitely get to taste quite a few beers as well as tour the brewery. We also had fun chatting with the others in the tour. It was only about 20 people.
This was a ton of fun! It's more of a beer tasting with lots of beer than a brewery tour, with some interesting facts about Iceland's history with alcohol.
Anna the tour guide was amazing! Hilarious, witty and friendly. I am from Boston where beer is a daily drink. Us Bostonians know beer well. And the beer at Olgerdin did not disappoint. All of the beers were light and crisp. No wonder one of them continuously wins beer competitions. Do this tour!

Not so much a brewery tour as it is a beer tasting while learning about the history of Icelandic beer. Our guide was hilarious! Lots of beer, and finish with a shot of Brennivin.
We got a lively history of alcohol in Iceland while trying several different types of beers and liquor. At the end we took a tour of the brewery.

Brilliant. Silva I think the guide should be on the stage. This is not a tour but a brilliant evening having the history of the brewery explained whilst being plied with beer. Its more like a lovely evening down the local making new mates. A must do.
This was a great brewery tour! While tasting different beers, we got a great presentation of Iceland and #39;s history/relationship with alcohol. Our guide was very entertaining and made the visit more than fun. I would definitely recommend this tour!
Great beer tour. Heavy emphasis on the BEER portion and less so on the TOUR portion.

BEST brewery tour we have ever been on. More about drinking than actual touring! :
Excellent guide who I remember as being named HAPPY, not at all stingy with the beers, recommend for those who want to do something outside the mainstream while in Iceland.
Sylvia was awesome! She was excellent at not only entertaining us, but educating us as well.
YOU will be given AMPLE SAMPLES, and there is a very good chance you will leave with a buzz. Best to eat before or immedately after the tour.
Sven did an excellent and entertaining job of explaining the history of Iceland's relationship with beer. And he also shed light on other aspects of the Icelandic liquor culture. We enjoyed the tour very much.
Quite simply the best brewery tour you will ever go on!
Most brewery tours you their is a talk and a few samples at the end and a walk through a gift shop, this is nothing like that. You get given loads of beer and Sylvia was highly entertaining!
