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...

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.

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?

I arrived in Flam early July just off its namesake railway. What a great surprise to find smack dab in the heart of the tourist center of town a brewpub! Unfortunately it was closed until just about the time that my boat was due to depart. Luckily next door was a resto that had several of their beers available on draft. Got to try some of those to my enormous enjoyment. And as luck would further have it, word got around to the brewmaster, Evan, that I was enjoying the beere and he personally stopped by my table and invited me for a little vilsit to the brewpub. Had a nice chat, a little swag, and a big smile. Maybe we’ll be able to have some of their beers in USA someday soon. I hope so! Quaffable brew.

Visiting this place during spring 2009 and must just say that I agree with Yngwie, this place has to be experienced personally to understand what is all about. The place (Flåm) is almost unbelievable beautiful and has a scenery that no photo can possibly justify. The brewpub is like something from a fairytale, filled with to many details to describe and actually really cosy at the same time, especially in the evening with the open fireplace. To be honest, no one will really expect to find really good beers at a place like this. With so much effort made to design the building with the decoration, yes even inside the brewery itself - you could hope to get decent beers at the best. They only serve their own beer (with exception of low alcohol beers) and just have to have something to suit 1 million tourists from everywhere. They do serve some kind and easy to like beer, but they are all well made beers. They show distinct what craft beer is all about without offending anyone. At the same time they have one of the best and hoppiest IPA that available in Norway. I also now that some other goodies for the hardcore beer enthusiast are just around the corner.
The staff is friendly and seem to know what they are dealing with. Evan, the man himself seems to be everywhere all the time and is the friendliest and most patient person you could imagine. I really don’t know if it’s right for me to comment the food. They normally don’t serve food at the brewpub, but my visit was during a special arrangement with a multi-course beer dinner prepared by a gourmet chef, so this is not totally neutral. My only advice will be to visit Ægir whenever in Norway, no matter how far distance to travel whatsoever.

What a lovely building! They have everything from the brewery. I drank a perfect India Pale ale before I had to catch the train back to Myrdahl. That said, guests are cruise tourists, but Ægir is still recommended strongly

A schooling example for any Micro about to start: Get located in a place with huge amounts of tourists, build a beatiful brewpub; and the profit of the business is home safe.
Excellent beer in a fabulous location. Do visit if you pass by Flåm! A place not to be missed.
