Ölvisholt Brewery in Selfoss

Do you love to spend your days off enjoying the sights and smells of breweries? If so, make sure to visit Olvisholt Brewery. This fantastic brewery was founded by two local dairy farmers, who merged their passion and love for beer in 2007 to create the secret ingredient to their product. In the same year, the farmers repurposed an old barn and made this their new home, and it is here that the brewery creates some of Iceland’s most famous beers.

Where can I find Olvisholt Brewery?

The brewery is located in the town of Selfoss, near the Kiðjabergsvöllur golf course.

The brewery is often credited with establishing a microbrewery culture in Iceland, being one of the first. From its inception, the companies aim was to produce a beer, that was not what the country was used to, in terms of taste, with pushing boundaries being at its forefront. Their extensive collection of beers can be found in bars all across Iceland, with exports being made to the US and Sweden, and planned exports worldwide in the near future. Tours are available from the facility at 6 pm every Friday. So what are you waiting for? Make the most of your next day out in Iceland, and visit the famous Olvisholt Brewery!
