Baran Cafe is in the center of Bergen, and used to be a hippie-oriented student hangout in the early 2000’s, until a fairly recent makeover has turned it into a more all-round pub. Nevertheless a liberal atmosphere surrounds the place, and both furniture and art point slightly towards the urban "avant garde". Friendly and fairly knowledgeable staff who will engage in a conversation about beer if you are interested. They also serve food, of which I have tried little, but the few things I’ve had there have been decent enough. For Norwegian standards, they have a pretty good selection: 10-13 taps with some international macros and some Norwegian micros, mostly from Haandbryggeriet and Ćgir. Baran serves a selection of around 70 types of bottled beer, which is way above your average Norwegian bar. Also, prices are very Norwegian, which is of course to be expected, but nothing outrageous as Baran still caters heavily to the student/young adult segment.The bottle selection is rather sprawled, with no apparent focus areas or system to the beers in stock. However, I did find beers from breweries I’ve never seen other places in Bergen in recent times (such as De Molen and De Dolle) the last time I was there. Beware though; the staff are a bit lazy updating the shelves, so your pleasure of finding something interesting can turn into sudden frustration at times, as they mostly don’t sell the last bottles (I guess they see them as decoration or something). Overall a nice place, somewhat overlooked and definitely a bar with the potential to be a real haven for beer lovers. So far, Henriks and Naboen have a slightly more professional approach to beer and promoting beer culture, but Baran should not be considered far behind.

Stumbled upon this nice bar, when Naboen pub was filled to its limits. Good selection of Norwegian micros on tap, as well as a wide bottle selection makes this a nice addition to Naboen and Henrik, which are located in the same neighbourhood. Knowledgeable bartender. Found Ćgir harvest ale on tap.

Very good selection on bottled and tap beers, norwegian micros and rare and commercial ales. From a small decrepit bar they are now a very nice ambiance pub just in a couple of years.

A large selection of beers, both on tap and bottled (60-80 different beers). Food not very good, but good ambience and the bartender is knowledgeable. Haandbryggeriet on tap!

A place with a very nice atmosphere, which is the place with most beers on tap in Bergen. They also have about 70-80 bottles beers. Bartenders offer good service and a good conversation. When it comes to food, the selection is not enormous, but the vegetarian pasta is absolutely magnificent, even for non-vegetarians like me.
