These are the beers that we have on tap most of the time
Paint it Blacker kicks in at 11.1% ABV and is nice and thick, with a noticeable amount of body and lots of dark flavors. Think about dark chocolate, coffee, dried fruits, hint of licorice and a sub tone of vanilla and caramel. The alchohol or spirit flavours are quite welcoming and warming but hidden and are in the background. (Making this beer Dangerously Drinkable).
Bryggjan Brugghús first Halloween special beer has gotten the name Mashing Pumpkins. The beer is a Pumpkin Spice Reddish Brown Ale. Possibly the first pumpkin beer made in Iceland. Grilled pumpkin was used to get some color and flavor out, that gives the beer its cloudy nature and actual hint of pumpkin. the beer contains cinnamon, cardamom, clove, all spice, and nutmeg and a little bit of lemon grass. Mashing Pumpkins is 6% ABV, a reddish brown, cloudy ale, dry on the palate, very drinkable, the spices are felt in the aroma and the aftertaste, not overpowering, the pumpkin presence is very subtle.
A classic American IPA brewed from a large amount of american hops and dry hopped with Citra Mosaic. Oats are added to increase the filling of the beer and the hops give the fruity and citrus aroma with friendly but aggressive bitterness.
Bryggjan Pale Ale is very refreshing and light beer with fruity tones and bitterness. Bryggjan Pale Ale is a perfect beer for people that are custom to Pilsner but would like to try something new but not to advanced in taste and character.
Our Pilsner is a classic German Pilsner with light and fresh character that makes it very enjoyable and with complex sense of malt.
Baldur is a classic German Hefeweizer from 50% malted wheat vs. malted barley. What makes the wheat beer different from lager is the tones of banana that come from the wheat-beer-yeast. Wheat beers should not be bitter so what hops are used does not really matter.
In our red ale´s the toasted malt is the main character and gives the dark color of the beer. Red ale is a super beer with food because it more sweet than bitter.
Session IPA is the youngest sibling in the IPA family. The beer is low in alchol with high bitterness. Session IPA is perfect beer for those seeking aromatic hops and bitterness but choose light and accessible beer.
Gose is and old school german style of beers that has been very popular in the microbrewery scene in the last years. About half of the corn that is malted wheat and in that sense Hrútskýrir is a wheat beer. What makes Gose different from popular wheat beers is that is made sour with Lactobacillales.

Our Double IPA or DIPA Litli Grís (Little Piggy) is a beer of strong character and is little over 8% in alcahol level. To get the alcohol content and the filling to the beer character a genorous amount of sugar aand oats are added though the hops create the strong character of the DIPA.
While the yeast gives the main characteristic of the Wheat beer and the hops the same for IPA, the malted oats are the main ingredient of the red ale. The toasted barley gives the color to the red ale and the distinct coffee and liqourish tones. The red ale has a sweet character because of lesser amount of hops.
