The Annual Icelandic Beer Festival is a spectacular experience for the craft beer loving folks from all over the world.


On March 1st 1989, the 74 year old spell of prohibition was lifted off Iceland's bent but not broken back, rebuilding social spirit and reassuring every man, woman and child, that NO force would ever hold back the inevitable conquest of beer. (We had to fight, for our right to party and we won the fight). 

February 22nd to 24th, 2018, we will celebrate the existence of beer for the 7th time.. Every year we celebrate, we will have some of the most exciting breweries on this planet, both local and foreign, introducing their produce.
