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?

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 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.

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.

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.

Updated since my latest visit in August, 2014.
Always nice beers to choose from, always something special to pick up from the cuvée list. Staff goes from very knowledgeable and informed to at least fairly so. A classic place, but I find myself going less often and finding new places instead. If youäve never been I’d say it is a must, but for me it gets less interesting to go "just because".
Review from last time I visited, in November 2012.
Been here on and off since the late 90’s I guess?
Get to Slussen by public transport (green or red line metro is the safe choice), then a short walk.
One of the places I tend to go back to again and again every time I visit Stockholm.
Always been a "go to pub", but seems they tend to live on the reputation sometimes.
Staff is from very service minded and focused on the customer to downright disrespectful. If there for lunch can get staff who knows zero about beers alltogether.
For the older staff some seems to be in danger of falling into the old "I know more and am cooler than my customer base" trap it seems. I’ve seen it happen to other bars and other type of places and it is sad when it goes down that way. Even if it is true, you should treat your customer with respect.
Usually a nice draught representation and up to three or so cask beers, as well as a more than decent bottled list. Also have a very respectful cuvee bottled beers list, though do mind the prices before you order any of the bottled beers!
I rarely eat here since the pirces in comparison to what you get can exceed my taste buds/wallet or whatever it is, I am usually not that impressed by the plate but my wallet can complain though.
Beers are not cheap, but usually very well kept and for Stockholm you can not complain about the quality for sure.
The ambiance is OK. Can get rather crowded, not a huge amount of seating.
