Might be biased cause I live in Stavanger and visit this awesome beer pub regularly. 22 taps which about 18-20 are craft beer and 2-4 are "regular beers" for the non-initiated beer lovers. Service is great with a well thought staff. Prices are stiff, but hey this is Norway, it’s not the cheapest place to get craft beer in Norway but due to the high amount of distinct beers they have I forgive them for the slightly higher price on some bottles! This is a true pub with nice ambiance and toned down music so you can actually have a nice discussion around your beer. Even if it’s in the middle of the town centre this place is for people enjoying beer in good company and not a place where you often see overintoxicated people. They have a 5 beer flight from tap to a discounted price and regular tasting to new beers every other monday. Place is crowded most evenings (even during the weekdays) but if you want to enjoy a pint in peace come early (3pm saturday is a good time to sit down and read a newspaper with a nice beer). 2 floors so if it’s packed downstairs take the stairs up. Possibility to reserve tables for bigger crowds and hold private beer tastings. Good selection of local and national norwegian beers as well as international beers. Imho best beer pub in Norway.

Fantastic Bar, generally good tap fayer, love the Lurvig. Failing the taps, the huge beer bible is among the best I have seen. Hideously expensive even for the crap UK stuff I have seen there on draft, Speckled Hen, Guinness. Bottled Speedway, £45. There is a very good atmosphere here and a good mixed crowd, always busy when I have been

Cardinal belongs to one of the best beer pubs I’ve ever been to. With currently 20+ beers on tap and around 500 on bottle, the selection is overwhelming. The selection of beers on tap is changing frequently, and there is a big variety of Norwegian microbrews available. In addition to that, Cardinal does a lot to promote high quality beer by conducting arrangements like beer tastings, beer enthusiast’s meetings (with reduced prices) and even homebrew courses with live brewing on the pub. The staff is genuinely interested in beer; most of them know more about beer then I do. I’m glad that this place exists in my town.

Outstanding selection of local, national and international beers. Expensive. But this is Norway. Overall, an unforgettable not to be missed bar full of character.

Cardinal has a very wide and interesting selection of beers on tap and bottled. Their beer-book (menu) reads like a lexicon and is an invaluable Source of information on good beers, available for downloading from their homepage. The only thing missing is a more proactive attitude to service, to be a "guide" for customers wishing to learn more about good beer.When when we asked about Lervig’s best beer, there was no apparent interest in marketing the local brew.
