Good place with nice tap selection of Swedish craft beers, very friendly bartenders, some expensive - it’s Stockholm.

Mainly focused, obviously, on whisky, but they also have a nice tap selection.

Visited September 2012 with womencantsail, chinoskillzian, and vsxsv.

Home of the "tooth blackening system" this is located in an alley full of tourist shops supplying all the knickknacks and trinkets you can handle, and then some. There are also plenty of candy shops around too. Then there is this. If you’re into whiskey this is the right place to be in Stockholm. I’m not, though they do have a few dozen taps carrying some of the better beers Scandinavia has to to offer. Well, they aren’t all good, but they’re certainly interesting. The tooth blackening system mentioned above is the house beer that they carry which is a heavily roasted/ashy (Larry) beer that stains the glass it resides in. It wasn’t terrible but I don’t like chewing on charred wood. The atmosphere is great here and from the sounds of it they do live music which could make this a really fun place to hang out.

Beer selection is what they have on taps. This isn’t the place for beer geeks but whiskeyheads can find here something to try. Whiskey selection is pretty big.

Weird place, this is supposed to be the 6th best beer place in Stockholm but seems like it’s more to whisky - like the name says. Only 5 beers on bottle.

Walked passed this innocuous looking entrance to this place several times even though I was looking out for it. Eventually had to consult the map! Once inside you are greeted by a long bar - stylishly designed and decorated. There are a lot of taps here and the selection is mostly Swedish micros - a very good selection it is too. There were no less than 4 DIPAs on during my visit. Service was exemplary. Quick, friendly and knowledgeable. The small tasting glasses at 30Kr a pop were (for Stockholm) good value and meant I could rip through quite a few beers. The food was very very good indeed. Wonderful sweet (almost cake like) bread and also sour and salty bread accompanied delightful modern twists on Swedish cuisine. The food would have got maximum marks but for over seasoning, i afterwards I was spitting salt for a good half hour. But the taste of the food was fantastic. A really nice place to visit and I was sorry when I had to leave. Frankly this place knocked spots off of Oliver Twist and the Bull and Bear. Haven’t mentioned the whisky because I am not in to them but there is an impressive array that should delight an enthusiast.

A temple to whisky and beer in among the souvenir shops and currency exchange bureaus on the main tourist drag of the old town. There’s a very impressive range of whiskies from around the world and I counted 27 taps, all serving Swedish beers. I could easily have been spoiled for choice but I had to have the Ardbeg Embassy Number One. It’s brewed by Strömsholms for them and the barman told me that it’s made with Islay malt, very smoky and only available here. Unfortunately I really do not like whisky (despite having tried my best to acquire a taste for it when on holiday in Scotland) and I wasn’t keen on the beer at first either – it tasted like germolene. However, as it says on the Ardbeg Embassy menu, “good beer takes time” so I sipped slowly and it gradually grew on me. The place itself is quite pleasant and chic. It’s long and narrow at the front, opening up into a large area at the back where there are tables for diners and a wall displaying hunting trophies such as antlers, a couple of elk or reindeer heads and, bizarrely, a zebra’s head. The service was friendly enough but a bit slow as there was only one barman at first. It was like waiting for a London bus though because two or three more appeared all at once just as he got round to serving me. (Visited 2 March 2013).
