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!

Wonderful place. It looks like a mix of a stave church and a medieval drinking hall. Some of the furnishing is well past the top, and over into kitsch territory, but somehow it still works quite well. It’s peaceful and quiet, with lots of choices for seating, and the staff are friendly and helpful. You can probably get a tour by the brewer, too, if you ask nicely. The beers are really good, too. And the location is spectacular: at the bottom of a steep, narrow valley at the end of a fjord. The only problem is that it’s fairly remote. But if you want to see the fjords, this is the place to go. It’s fairly easy to get here, the scenery is stunning, and nowhere in the fjord country will offer anything similar beerwise. So if you plan to go to Western Norway at all, go here. Fits in well with Norway in a Nutshell, too.

This place scores higher on magnificent architecture and scenery than selection, but Ægir’s own beers are surely decent and well worth sampling(most of them are also available elsewhere). A tour of the brewery is available for groups.

A hidden gem in the Norwegian fjords.
Set your self back so the time when the vikings ruled the northern shores of europe,
here it’s build a hall in tribute to Ægir, the Jotne that ruled the sea. Well decorated both interior and exterior wise, this is also a modern state of the art brewery, when i visited they had 6 beers on tap, bottles and glasses to bring home. A must visit if you are in these parts of Norway. Did i say that the beers are among the best Norway has to offer?

A haven in the tourist machine of Flåm, Ægir is a wood, metal and stone decorated place with good beers on tap and a friendly staff. There’s also a shop allowing for bottled take-aways within the boundaries of Norwegian alcohol legislation (4,7 % and below).

Interesting place in the middle of a most scenic tourist area, and the building is in a unique, pseudo- neo-viking style - although not badly so. Although we visited in the middle of the tourist season, it was mostly empty in the evening, which gave it a eerie hotell-pub feeling. I suppose the guests are mostly tourists and the mood changes from evening to evening. The beers are generally great, and that is the biggest asset of the place. Is it not the most accessible pub in Norway, but well worth a visit if you’re in the area.

I visited Flåm during spring 2009. I drove all the way from Bryne, but my wife had to drive the last 9 km to our final destination in Aurland! This because of a short but fantastic visit at Ægir Brewpub. We had dinner at Furukroa Cafe and bought some bottles (about 6 euro each) and a T-shirt at the brewery shop. While my wife and children strolled around in Flåm, dad enjoyed a "plank" with 5 sample beer from the brewery. Brime Red Lager and IPA were new for me. I quickly ordered a 50 cl IPA...
