Exploring Iceland's Craft Beer Scene - Part 1 | Vlog 4

in vlog •  5 months ago


During the weekend, I and @agniese decided to pay Reykjavik another visit despite the gloomy, rainy weather, with the sole purpose of the trip being to explore the local brewing scene. We picked Bryggjan Brugghús as a starting point. The brewery is located in the city's harbor area, which is populated with many cafes and restaurants.

Watch my short vlog to see the brewery and find out what I thought of their beers.

Cheers!
Dan

P.S.
I promise to take detailed notes of the beers for my next vlog.

How long have you been in Iceland now? Beer flights are a must for me when going somewhere new, a lot of times I just can't make up my mind on what I am in the mood for.

I was surprised when dtube started playing. I still haven't figured why some dtube videos play for me and others don't. Great job on this video.

·

Hey man, what have you been up to lately? It seems that I somehow unfollowed you - very strange. It's not the first time this happens.

Anyways, I am glad that you enjoyed the video! Almost 2 weeks now and that was my first beer flight :) I think I will do another one during the coming weekend.

Dtube still has bugs, and every once in a while, it just won't play some of the videos.

Ah! What a luxury to visit Iceland just for the beers! Fun Vlog you made, I don't often watch video's but this format I like :D

·

PS: Dat @sbi3 vote you're getting since a few days comes from this: https://steemit.com/community/@soyrosa/tell-me-wheel-of-fortune-who-won-a-share-of-steem-basic-income :D You won a share of @steembasicincome! I've gotten comments from many that they didn't get notified on my mentions in the post, so I'm sharing it this way, just in case you missed it too :-)

·
·

I hardly open busy.org lately, which means that I don't get any notifications :) Huh! I am gonna check this out now

·

Haha, I wish I had the budget to visit places just for the sake of trying some local beer :P I am glad that you liked it :) Do you think it will be better if it's a bit longer?

·
·

LOL! We'll get there if we keep on Steeming ;-)

NO! Don't add length. I like to watch videos that are short and sweet. Long videos and I get impatient. This video had a nice 'rhythm' to it too :-)

Thanks for the feedback :))

nice. bryggerhus, :P
a have a liquor Store just 3min from my flat so a have startet my "test" going left to right in the canadina beer section,

next one. a pay 18$ a like Ur vologing style.
the dark shoot from the pub was depressive weather feeling over it. beer is best in terrible weather and it exselent weather. not in normal weather a feel

·

Well, you've got to do some beer posts about your finds in the liquor store :)

Yeah, it was quite dark in the pub, and I was afraid that the videos will not come out very good. For some of the shots, I really had to bump the ISO on the camera.

By the way, I like drinking beer despite the weather conditions :)

Thanks for your comment, man! Appreciate it.

Wow, Dan! You are getting some crappy weather over there. Sorry the beer wasn't better, too. And ouch! $18 for a fleight and $9 for a glass of beer during happy hour?!

My parents came to visit me in Mankato last weekend, so I took them to the local brewery. $5 covered the tour, sampling (about a pint) and another pint of whatever you liked best.

Great video work, by the way. The slow motion raindrops were spectacular!

Best of luck with the next beer.

·

Thank you, Mark! Yes, the prices are outrageous - the cheapest beer you can get in a bar is about $6 and it tastes really bad :)

The next one I am going to have is Koko Brown from Hawaii :)

That video was great, and the background music was really nice and chilled... Pity about the bar attendant and the beers, but at least the IPA was OK, very expensive too for such small glasses... That's nordic countries for you, very expensive for drinking..

·

Thanks man, I am very glad that you liked it! This is the first time I do voice over, and I find it easier than speaking in front of the camera :) Do you know how much I paid for 250 grams of locally grown cherry tomatoes? 4 Euros 😁

·
·

Ha ha, just getting around to reading this... 4 Euros!! Man, that's craziness right there!! The voice over works really well, you're really raising the bar for the reviews... Nice one man..

Great video, and great looking bar, sorry that the beers was not quite up to standard!!. Love the blue effect on the brew tanks!!

·

I think that was the light coming from the other room, which was entirely lit in blue. I don't know why...
Thanks, man! I will look for review on google before visiting the next brewery :) Cheers!

Good Video Dan, I'll be in Iceland in a couple of month so good to see there are few good craft beers to be had - I'm not surprised by the prices given the isolation of Iceland.

·

Thanks for dropping by, man! I'm glad that you enjoyed the video :) How long are you gonna stay in Iceland?

Snazzy musak for your video.....it was perfect for the mood. I'm telling you.....commercials are your thing!!

Glad you had a nice time and if I heard you correctly, you would not return to that pub.

I too enjoyed the slow motion with the raindrops.

·

Haha, you and your commercials 😁 Maybe they are my thing, but I just haven't realized it yet! Do you know how much time I spent looking for a good song? About an hour ⏱️

I am not going back to this pub - the bartender was very rude and the beer was only so-so. For that price, you would expect something better.

I think the shot with the raindrops is the best one in the whole clip. I am glad that you liked it! It was actually Agniese's idea to take it from this angle. And by the way, it's not in slow motion :)

·
·

Yes, yes me and my commercials....I need a new storyline :)

I know what you mean about time spent looking for music for your video. I spend that looking for the right quote for my posts. My husband takes even longer looking for the right photo for his stories. We are just carrying around a spirit of excellence is all .... 😇

Funny how one person can turn you off of a pub or store. I know what you mean. And the beer wasn't good either. Double bummer.

So, I was fooled by someone else's comment about the show motion rain. tsk. It's a beautiful clip at any rate.

hah :) I loved it, my friend!
I hope you're fine

·

Hehe, glad that you liked it Ceren :) I am good, thank you! How are you doing?

I envy you! : D
Enjoy your stay in Iceland!! ;)

·

Thanks man! :) Now that you are getting a G80, I expect to see some cool videos from you 📼

·
·

Of course! I already have some ideas in mind!

Hello, mr. beer connoisseur! I jumped in to see what you were up to and wow, congrats, you made a really good video! I love the way you shot the atmosphere at that brewery, and your narration is also very chill and pleasant to listen to. Hope to see more posts like this.

I'd also recommend that you share some still images from your vid, just to make your post look even more appealing and give a kind of preview...

But all in all bravo!

·

Hello @ankapolo, it's been a while! How are you doing?

I am very glad that you liked the video :) I have another one coming this week (hopefully), and I will include a couple of images as per your suggestion. Thanks!

·
·

definitely looking forward to it! more from Iceland?

I'm doing good, despite being really swamped with work and not sailing for a while... just got to meet my priorities first, thank you for asking :) I hope you are well too!

·
·
·

Yes, I just uploaded another one from Iceland :) I am great, thanks! Overwhelmed with work as well, so I don't have much time for Steemit.

It took me more than 1 hour to get to see your video... But was worth! Loved it... a pro! Loved the effects, the bokeh, everything! And now I wanted to taste that beer (I forgot the name, it's the one you appear drinking it!). Congrats, my friend! You have another subscriber ;))))))))

·

Wow, and how do you manage to upload photos and post on Steemit with this internet connection? Or is it only slow when you try to watch videos? I am happy that you liked it and that it was worth the hassle :)

·
·

I simply can't watch videos... they stop every second, I have to wait for them to download and that takes hours... The photos I upload are in low resolution, never above 200 or 300 mb... Otherwise would be a drama to upload them!

·
·
·

I admire your patience, having such a slow internet connection would probably drive me crazy :) Haha

·
·
·
·

I guess I am already... It's unbearable, sometimes!

This is so cool @irreverent-dan. I love your style!!

How many days is ideal to visit Iceland?

·

There's so much to see in Iceland, so you should at least spend a week here :)

·
·

I'll have to take a week then. Thanks.

·
·
·

You are welcome, Mark :) Just be prepared that most things cost a small fortune in Iceland.

·
·
·
·

Oh really? I'll have to check the prices then, especially on beer :)

Wow, what a great tour you guys had. The food in Reykjavik really looks and tastes good, cant wait to visit.

·

Yes, the food is also good, albeit a bit pricey :) Thanks for dropping by!
