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.

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.

A brewpub that also have food. The house production range varies from time to time. One may consider the range as safe and boring, but the quality has increased since the grand opening and the brewmaster has done some quite interesting coops with other norwegian brewers now and also done some nice beers as the late Røykporter. The beer cellar is quite nice and has alot of interesting stuff from demolen, mikkeller, 3 fonteinen and cantillon. Also a very nice tap selection from Haandbryggeriet, Ægir and NØ that is on rotation, so you can get exciting new beers from these breweries from time to time. The normal range of tap and bottles are typical boring english and german stuff. Food is also nice

Stumbled upon this nice-looking brewpub in Oslo, in the middle of the day. Great atmosphere, good music and the smell of beer being brewed! Visible brew kettles were also nice! I didn’t eat anything, but what I saw other people eat looked really good. Pretty good selection of bottled beer, both Norwegian micro brews and international beers of all kinds - but the prices were too damn high for my wallet, so I settled for a small glass of on-tap beer from Nøgne Ø I hadn’t tried before.

Stylish brewpub in dark wood, shiny metal and black leather. You can watch the brewers doing their thing from the tables. Smelling the wort as the brews boil along is pretty cool. This place could have been real cozy if it wasn’t for the excessive lighting and the light painted walls in some areas, they kind of ruin the feel of it a bit. I went there for lunch on a friday, no more than 5 others were there. At 17.00, the place got crammed quick with people going out for a beer after work. As the evening went, it quickly became pretty loud, and the music went from bearable pop to unbearable garbage party music. They have an ok beer selection, but as others have said they have some off limits bottles that are aging. Pretty mean of them to have them sit in plain view. Their own beers are decent, but very inoffensive and standard. The BBQ-burger was incredible though, holy shit. The staff is so-so. They were helpful, but they didn’t seem enthusiastic about what they were serving. A decent place, but I’ll only be coming here to sample their own brews. There are better beer spots in Oslo for sure. Does not deserve the "Exeptional" rating it’s got at the moment.

First of all, the beer selection at Amundsen is pretty impressive (for Oslo) so the place certainly deserves kudos for trying.
However, the rare and more interesting beers (such as Thomas Hardy’s Ale 2007, 2008, Fuller’s Brewers Reserve, Rodenbach Grand Cru etc) are offlimits. Despite being on display behind the bar and, in some cases on the menu, I often get told that they are not for sale yet. Leaving a number of good but more ordinary beers, many from England and Germany. So I often find myself looking through the menu feeling a lack of enthusiam, compared to the best beer bars in Oslo.
The draft beer selection is good, but not outstanding - Olympen, Håndverkerstuene and Schouskjelleren all have more craft beer on draft. And their own brews are pretty standard for a brewpub (pale ale, amber) but nothing strong or rich (such as imperial stout or even porters).
But what really irks me about Amundsen is the slow service there and the total lack of interest in beer shown by just about every person working in the bar. Few of them knows what beer they have and often have to consult others, and they have no ideas about beer styles. For a place with such a good beer cellar I find this appalling. You need good people to sell good beer!
Another issue I have with Amundsen is their prices. Though they have improved since opening, many beers are still way overpriced. A bottle of Ægir IPA costs NOK 106 (€ 13,50), Rochefort 10 costs NOK 168 (€21,50) - a 100 NOK more than Vinmonopolet - and I paid 380 NOK (€48) for a bottle of Boon Marriage Parfait!
But I shall give Amundsen plus for their good, homemade burger and for their large bottle beer menu.

This place is more or less a merge between Oslo Mikrobryggeri and Håndverkerstuene, with the brewing kettles visible behind glass in a corner and food based on beer. It’s actually a very decent place, lots of space, and a long bar. The situation is quite absurd, in the middle of one of the heaviest tourist streets of Oslo, but I guess it’s good for business. I was here on a friday afternoon, it was packed, and the service was quite slow and not the friendliest - maybe because of the stress. The selection on tap is not as impressive as some other places in Oslo, but it’s a nice addition with their own brews. I would go here to check out their own brews, not so much the other stuff.
