Reykjavik is known for having a lackluster beer scene, combine that with prices of over $10 a pint for a crappy lager and your expectations would be pretty damn low too. However! Mirco Bar is a gift from the beer gods.
Well over 60 bottles from the US (Sierra Nevada, Rouge) Denmark (Mikkeller) Belgium (Delrium, the usual trappists, Rodenbach, Drie Fonteinen, Cantillon, yes cantillon in Iceland, and even all the Westys) and some fantastic Iceland craft (Olvisholt). On tap they had about 10ish mostly Icelandic craft brews for a reasonable price. $8-9 for Lava a local Imperial Stout that was fantastic. Even the bottles were priced great my and friend I split a 75cl bottle of Iris for around 3.800 ISK around $30 a real treat.
The bartenders were all extremely kind and outgoing, telling what was upcoming and coming in Icelandic beer scene as well as stating their jealousy of mine ease of getting some American brews. This place is tiny, only a few small tables and fills quickly so get there early especially on a weekend. They do offer some small plates food wise I didn't try anything so can't comment on that front.
Overall one of the most memorable bars I've ever come across. Two Americans drinking Cantillon next to an German couple drinking Sierra Nevada Pale Ale all while in the northern most capital in the world.

Micro Bar is a small place that's connected to a hotel lobby that we randomly found one afternoon walking through Reykjavik. They have a nice selection of Icelandic beers on tap (including a smoked RIS called Lava which I found very tasty). Their bottle selection consists of a very good sampling of Mikkeler beers and other Euro breweries, as well as a few American ones. The guy working (Steinn), was really helpful and talked at length about all of the Icelandic beers to help me make my decision (I asked him that I wanted to try an Icelandic beer and if he could recommend one). Prices, as far as Icelandic standards, are extremely reasonable, especially given the quality of the beers they are selling.
