If you like beer the thought of the annual Beer Festival in the small village of Hólar in Hjaltadalur valley will make you dizzy before you have a single sip. Breweries from all over Iceland will give you the chance to sample dozens of craft and specialty beers. The focus will of course be on the drinks menu but from the food menu you can choose betweeen homemade bratwurzt, pulled-pork and bretzels. Contestants will compete in keg rolling and the best stall will receive an award. The festival is from 3 PM to 7 PM on Saturday June 7th. You can buy tickets ad midi.is or on location. Admission is 4.500 ISK ($40, EUR 30).
