Interesting place. They had just three of their own beers on draft, but a plethora from other Norwegian and Danish brewers, as well as a handful from Germany and the US. Staff was very helpful, and generous with free samples. The brewer was busy toiling away on the small system right next to the bar. Didn’t try the food. Worth a look.

British Brown Bar look and feel, large space, empty at 4pm filling up entirely by 6 for after-work drinks. Extensive menu including a number of Haand bottles, most were fresh and in good shape Only 1 or 2 house beers on tap. A lot of Cantillon and 3 Fonteinen if you’re into that. Very pretty lambic / trappist cellar viewable in the back.

A beautiful pub in the heart of the touristy part of Oslo. Nice front patio that sits around 50 with view on the busy Oslo. Nice warm and inviting leather & wood interior that sits around 100 people. Beer list comes in a nice leather menu and is separated in three parts. First the tap list is quite extensive, about 40 taps with 15 regulars not-so-interesting offerings from abroad (Guiness, Fullers, Paulaner etc.) and the remaining 25 tap lines dedicated for their homebrews and other Norway micros. When I was there the tap listed in beer menu wasn’t quite up to date but they have a black board that was up to date. They had 4 of their own beers on tap when I was there. Second part of the beer menu is the special bottle list, quite interesting. Some items I took note of: 3 Fonteinen Armand & Tomme ($45), Speedway Stout ($50), Stillwater Existent ($30), a bunch of Lost Abbey 750ml ($40), Westvleterens ($45), a bunch of lambics (Cantillons LP, Tilquin, Staff Winter, etc.) for about $45, Ø for awesome ($45), variations of barrel aged Emelisse Imperial Sout ($20), LA Framboise De Amorosa ($40). Lervig Konrads ($20), Black Tokyo Horizon ($60), and so on and so on, the list is three pages long. Many of those prices may seem crazy but this is Norway. That list is undoubtedly different right now but that should give you an idea. The third section in the beer menu is the ‘normal’ bottles which are somewhat more affordable and mostly consists on micros you can buy at the Vinmonopolet stores. I had three of their own beers on tap and I found them rather disappointing. I also had the 3 Fonteinen Armand & Tomme which was surprisingly affordable given its style and limited nature. Good food menu that goes way beyond basic pub fare. But this is Norway so expect a hefty bill. Service was super friendly and knowledgeable. I was a bit disappointed to have all my beers served in the same generic dollar store snifter glasses, even my 3 Fonteinen Armand & Tommy. Prime location, and crazy beer list. I really enjoyed everything about this everything except their own beers.

Another option for good beer drinking in the Norwegian capital. It has got a very central location next to large brick building of Oslo’s Town Hall. Rather inviting, ordinary décor that seems to attract different kind of people depending on the time of the day. The well-composed beer menu is divided into three parts: the draft part, one part of permanent bottle beers and the most interesting part of bottle beers that changes every month, or so. Good range with a fine mix of macros and micros, foreign and Norwegian. During a weekend in Oslo I visited Amundsen twice; Friday late afternoon and Sunday mid-afternoon. I was very pleased with the beers and the service. The Swedish barman was service minded and knowledgeable when it came to the beer menu. Ordinary, but tasty food – I had a burger with bacon and salad. A pale ale was the only one available from their own brewery, and the brew had a fine drinkability. Will definitely return, and with its central location and convenient opening hours, I may pop in every time I have a chance to go to Oslo (visited, 1st and 3rd April 2011).

In a very central location in Oslo, you will find this good restaurant with a decent beer selection. If you dont feel for a full dinner, they have pub snacks and lighter meals available. The beer selection is good for Oslo, on my visit there was 2 taps each from: Haandbryggeriet, Nøgne Ø and Ægir.
Quite good bottle selection from Europe, and some from the US. Don´t forget to taste their own beers, best are their collaborations beer. If you belongs to the endangered species of smokers, there are some tables on the pavement for you.
Service could be faster, but overall a nice place.

This place is a bit of a victim of trying to be a tourist trap, a sports bar, a place for after work drinking and dining and a serious beer bar/brewpub.
There are some very fine beers here, both bottled and on tap, but try to find a quiet time to visit. Sampler glasses of all the draft beers.

Decent microbrewery in the city centre, close to the city hall. Pretty good beer selection. Good quality on their own beer, but the collaborations are usually a bit more interesting. The outside tables are pretty popular on sunny days in summer.

Well, I like the place, and then I don’t. Quite a few of their own beers are really boring, but they have a very decent selection of other beers. It’s a quite good looking place, but then it’s also some kind of sportspub. Service has been quite good, although a bit slow on my visits, so no complaints there, but the area and clientel isn’t my cup of tea, so it’s never a top priority for me to visit Amundsen. But it’s still worth a visit if in Olso, that’s for sure.
