In my opinion, Skuli is the best place for craft beer in Reykjavik. I visited four of the other top-rated locations in the city and Skuli had, by far, the best draft list, as well as a deep bottle list (if you don’ mind spending) of local and imports (quite a bit of lambic and Gueuze).

Kind of odd visit, I hope this is not the normal experience. I could hardly get service and had to repeat like three times my flight order. 3/4 of the beers in the flight tasted like they had brewing flaws in them, they were sour when they should not and had very metallic taste in some of them. Only the imperial stout was good.

The bar looked great and the terrace was nice. Prices were super high, like everywhere in Iceland to be fair for beer.

This is a nice little out of the way bar which could be easily overlooked. Great service and a nice selection of local beers

Drinks are expensive in Reykjavík, but this place offers happy hour specials from noon - 4 pm. Outstanding selection of local draft beers as well as a huge inventory of bottled beers. My hubby found one bottled beer, Cantillon from Belgium, that he had been looking to try. He was thrilled!

This bar was across the road from our hotel. We visited twice. Staff were helpful with suggestions and allowed us to taste samples. Great to be able to taste a range of Icelandic beers.

Hoping to revisit Skuli’s after 8 years for a night cap beer. Wrestled the sliding door and sat at nearest 2 seats at the bar. Received some negative energy but pushed on. After 5 minutes the bartender came over and didn’t make any eye contact. I referenced a ‘red’ beer I had back then and she blew out and said they rotate with no help or suggestions. We walked out. Our money and good experience went elsewhere. Sad.

Loved that the Skuli Bar was open during the Easter Holiday weekend. We were lucky to find a table both nights we stopped in, but it does fill up pretty quickly. There is also outside seating for those willing to brave the cold and elements. There are about 12 beers on tap and a clipboard of cans, bottles, wines, etc. They do flights of 4. I’m glad we stopped by again, because they had changed out some of the taps and I was able to try an amazing Blueberry Witbier (Blaberja Freyja). They have some bar snacks (potato chips and jerky) for purchase but no real food. The service was weird our first night, similar to other reviews where they were just kind of standing there behind the bar and avoiding eye contact if you tried to order. However, the service night 2 was great. Guess it depends on who is working and the mood they are in.

We are big fans of craft beer and this place did not disappoint. A great selection of sours, sessions, DIPAs, porters etc in varying strengths to suit all palates. Happy hour is a real bonus too! Wine selection is basic and could be better but was fine for us. Knowledgeable staff on hand. Recommended for a drink or two.

An an avid beer drinker I was very excited to check this place out in Iceland as it’s a highly rated venue on untapped and I love trying new beers especially NEIPA’s which they had some on tap.

We came in last night and waited 15 mins while the bartender ignored us sitting at the bar not serving anyone. He then waited on other parties on both sides of us that came up to the bar and avoided eye contact with us. I’m assuming as we didn’t look like locals he couldn’t be bothered.

We almost left without even getting a beer but glad he finally couldn’t ignore us any longer and had a flight and ginger mule. Beer and the drink was great — so glad we stuck it out.

Really was the worst customer service we experienced in three days in Iceland. We likely would have stayed for more but given our experience we left for a place around the corner and they welcomed us with open arms to spend our money.
