What You Can Expect
Iceland's drinking history is quite quirky, to be honest. This is perhaps not surprising considering the majority of the Icelandic population still believes in elves...
Our host will give you a lesson in history like you‘ve never experienced before. If you‘re a good student we might even reward you with a shot of Brennivín, the original Icelandic schnaps.
You‘ll have a walking trip around the premises and most importantly get to taste award- winning products. The beverages are from our main brewery and also from Borg Brugghús, our craft brewery.
Our beers have received multiple international recognition so you‘re definitely in for a treat!
A Friendly Note:
Keen students are kindly asked not to study the drinking material thoroughly prior to embarking on the tour. We reserve the right not to serve severely intoxicated guests.
The tour is not appropriate for children as the legal drinking age in Iceland is 20 years and we are serving and enjoying alcoholic beverages.
