Nice, comfortable place, good food. Very respectable beer selection, highlighted of course by rare lambics and geuzes, some of which are made specifically for this bar. Prices, like all in Sweden, are shocking. But I’d rather have good beer than money.

Place rating 300. Visited September 2012 with chinoskillzian, vsxsv, and canklescantsail on a quest to try all the crazy Cantillon beers that we could.
This stop was on our second day in Europe out of 15 so we basically started with the grand finale. One side of the restaurant is a noisy busy bar with plenty of seating and a long bar. They were out of room on that side so they sat us in the more private quieter room and since we were all wearing tshirts and jeans they told us that after two hours they would kick us out. The attitude changed as soon as we started ordering expensive bottles. Actually, at that point they became very friendly.
The bottle list is pretty awesome but dont scroll past the taps either as there are some good ones on tap. You can check the "See more pics" link in my profile to see what all we ordered but the bill came to 5000 SEK ($800ish at the time). Actually the prices on those Cantillon bottles are pretty reasonable compared to what bars anywhere else would probably charge (cough cough LH12 cough cough). It’s not all lambic either, they have a ton of other stuff. My only disappointment beerwise was the news that they had run out of the unblended Lamvinus not too long before we got there.
The food was very good too. My venison was awesome and the beef plates that came out were good as well. The food was pricey (200-250 SEK for most plates) but worth it.
Will definitely revisit when I come back to Europe again. After all I need to try the new Soleil.

simply put, one of the best beer bars in the world. the people are amazing, the beer list is better than you would ever expect, the food was satisfying, and the atmosphere was always positive. four days in Stockholm and four nights at Akkurat. yes.

One of the most enjoyable beer experiences of my life. Amazing bottle list with a rather decent slection of draft beers, too. The staff was friendly and accommodating and the food was excellent. I had the biff rydberg which was great. Would come back here in a heartbeat.

Knowledgeable staff, mind-blowing festivals and one of the largest vintage beer cellars in the world. Selection, service - what more do you want?

What else is there to say. Possibly the best selection on earth. The prices for the not so rare bottls are actually below average. Standard lambics are often as cheap as the microbrews, Per thinks they may even lose money out of that. Remarkably knwoledgeable and helpful staff. if you come to Stockholm and miss this place (possibly even the best location in town), you are helpless. Might be my favorite beer place on earth, though I like Spuyten Duyvil a lot for ambiance.

An unpretentious place with very friendly staff and a great, 20-beer draft lineup - and yes, Akkurat has one of the most impressive bottle lists I have ever seen. But - and this is a major but - the prices are just laughably high on many of the bottles. It’s the unfortunate intersection of rare beer and Stockholm prices, and it isn’t pretty. So brace yourself for some serious monetary outlay if you plan on drinking the rarities. For the selection, quality, fantastic service and overall vibe, this place is absolutely world-class.

I don’t know what the picture is on Akkurat’s place rating page, but it is not what Akkurat looks like. Maybe someone got to see the cellar once upon a time and took a secret picture? Let’s face it, we love Akkurat because they have a giant selection of rare Cantiloons [sic] that most people are too cheap to actually GO TO SWEDEN for about $500-$600. But they will spend ten years and over $1000 trying to trade for these beers that ARE NOT IN CIRCULATION! Suck it up and just go to Sweden if you are that fucking desperate for rare Cantillon ticks.
Ending the rant, Akkurat is probably my least favorite place for beer in Stockholm. It is a huge place, way too big, there is a live band, there are tons of tables with people on a date, and there are tables full of people who found it hysterical that anyone would come all the way to Sweden for beer! Taplist at Akkurat, if you even bother, is good; but not any better than Man in the Moon, Bishops Arms, Belgobaren, et al. Service is..okay. Sometimes I really had to get someone’s attention and other times we were treated like royalty. The highlight was the cellar master let us try some experimental geuzes for no charge that were phenomenal. 4.3-4.4 level in my book. I do have to give selection a 15/15 because of their insane amount of crazy vintage lambic that is the best in the world probably. Food is outstanding, but not cheap. In a nutshell, you must go here, but that doesn’t mean you have to fall in love with it.

I visited the place on a Saturday afternoon, medium crowded, unstaffed; slow service, no smiles...
I didn’t want to afford the speciality (a Cantillon Goldackerl Gueuze for about 50€), the food was ordinary. I didn’t ask for rare beers, I didn’t see any on the list.

On my trip in Stockholm this was my first stop. Went on Saturday afternoon totally dead, I was told this was because the soccer games were on and it was nice out. This was good because it provided me some ample time to talk to the staff, but a downside because there are no tvs to watch the soccer games. Atmosphere in general is pretty boring, typical euro bar, wood everything, beer memo on the wall but nothing special. There are 2 menus one for the day and the vintage or cellar menu. The cellar menu is what I want to right away. I was awed with verticals of trappist beers, westy 6, and unreal lambics such as cantillon loerik, millenium gueze & jj blauw. The selection was great, quality best in the world hands down...The staff is good very knowledgable and helpful. It was slow so the staff even took me to the cellar which was awesome. 5 floors down, I saw one of 3 cellars filled to the brim with unreal beers. Interestingly they advocate laying all lambics on there side. The price is high but this cellar.
This is a true must see, almost a reason to go to Stockholm.
