Yes, this is a tourist’s brewpub. But if you’re in Flåm you’re almost certainly a tourist yourself, so you might as well try to enjoy your trip instead of complaining about how touristy everything is.
The building is an attraction in it’s own right, built to look like a stavkirke on the outside with a spacious interior centered on a big fireplace. It’s pretty chill if there is no cruise ship in port, but a zoo if there is. A great place to wind down your evening.
Bartender was friendly and helpful, but a little hard to get ahold of, even if the place is empty.
They serve almost all the Ægir beers, mostly in bottles. The tap selection is limited mostly to their 4.7% beers, which seems a little backwards to me since you can buy those at the nearby grocery store or the attached bottleshop for half the price. You can get a flight of these mainline beers. Most of the beers are American styles so maybe not that exciting for American tourists, but it’s impressive how much flavor they can cram into 4.7%. There are some interesting things on the the bottle menu (very expensive) and they make their own Aquavit too. Fun for the whole family!
You should also visit the production facility down the road, its very spiffy.

Visited together with yngwie and we started by getting a tour of the production brewery by Vegard. Which probably is the most beautiful craft brewery I have seen so far. Later we went down to the brewpub and shared a couple of beers round the fireplace. This place is worth visiting just to see that brewpub and it’s just a bonus that the beers are great too.

Gildehall i vikingstil med dragehoder og med en peis som rager høyt over taket. Trebenker med sitteunderlag i skinn.
Norges tøffeste bryggeripub...?

Oh well, so here I am at what some people have described as the one of the most beautiful brewpub ever. While I agree that this place is one of a kind, large carved wooden chairs, central fireplace and other majestic stuff. But I found the whole thing a bit too much over-the-top with the Viking style atmosphere. This is a touristy pub and it designed to impress the tourists. And biggest problem is not a single window!!! You are next to the breathtaking Flåm fjord sitting in a pub with no window. After two pints we bought bottles from their bottle shop and went in a little park outside to drink the beers looking at the fjord. They had 7 of their own beers on tap, prices was US$12 for a 33cl and US$20 for a full pint (sounds absurd but these are decent prices for Norway). They do sampling trays. They have a separate door for the shop (bottles + other stuff) but they are only allowed to sell their beers 4.7% or less because apparently only government Vinmonopolet can sell beers above 4.7%. The pub offers hot food but we’re talking basic pub fare here with burger and a few other things. Not worth a detour for the pub, but worth a detour for the beautiful fjord where you can rent a bike or go kayaking.

Great place with great decoration, the wood chairs and the fireplace are awesome. Only AEgir beer, expensive (specially lynchburg natt). Good service.

Characteristic brewpub situated in the quite beautiful, small tourist sown of Flåm.
Worth the visit more for its ambiance than for its selection of beers. But most Ægir brews are worth sampling, so...

My first place review!
I got really excited when I set my foot in the tourist town Flåm, after a hard 3 day hike (with cabin stops).
The brewery pub was magnificent, with a Viking styled interior and exterior, a cozy fireplace in the middle of the pub, wooden furniture and old Norse details to the walls and decorations. The staff was helpful, with helping us set up a tour, and smiled when we showed up for the umpteenth time there. Had a burger next door, that was surprisingly juicy since this was a major tourist-trappy place. Of course, the hotel, cafe, brew-pub and restaurant were all owned by one person and his wife.
Me and me friend managed to book a "tour" with the brewery; we latched onto a business party of 27, since they don’t do individual "tours". I write "tours" with quote signs, since it was lacking: a cute Norwegian talked about the brewery process and Ægir for a few minutes, before we got our standard 5 samplers, and then another girl talked about the different beer profiles. And that was it. No tour of the the brewery/process, so I felt kind of robbed for the tour price of NOK 230 (since the sampler itself cost NOK 125, I think). Especially since all the info seemed superflous and readily available on the interwebz.
I hope the management reads this and improves the tours, and make it more readily available to book for smaller groups, with more touring and more info!
However, the small Viking-fan inside of me became allive and well by the general athmosphere of the place, to make up for some of the lack of varieties (which will probably increase after they step of the production scale) and the rather daft "tour"!

This brewpub is unique in the sense of its architecture and the beauty of the surrounding nature. Located right off the cruise ship dock, their concept is obviously geared primarily towards tourists, rather than beer geeks. In the building next to the pub is a nice restaurant with outdoor seating, offering
a couple of their beers on tap as well. With the exception of the brewtanks, the interior of the pub made me think of an upscale ski chalet.
The tap menu consisted of 5 different 4,7 % Ægir beers, of which the excellent IPA was my favourite. They offered some
of their other beers in bottles as well, but they were neither on display, nor in a menu, and the otherwise very nice and helpful, newly hired bartender, was not quite up to speed about his inventory yet.
Luckily one of the brewers showed up. He took some time off from his busy schedule doing installation work at their new bigger brewery. He gave us a tour of the
facilities, as well as locating some great bottles. One of those was Lynchburg Natt Imperial Porter. World class! So was the price,in a negative sense...
It takes some effort for most people to get to Flåm, but it is worth the trip!
