A well places, cozy little student-bar with a good selection. Most of the time the staff have good time for a beer-talk, and I really like the beer-of-the-month concept they have. Have not tried the food, and probably won’t do do either, but you don’t go to Baran for the food.

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 Ægir. 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.

Besøkte Baran to ganger i sommer. Desverre veldig vekslende kvalitet på servic og kunnskaper, og vanskelig på få smaksprøver. Brukbart utvalg (selv om mye er standard for dedikerte ølhunder), og Beer of the Month er en god ide. Skal så avgjort besøke dem neste gnang jeg er i Bergen, og jeg er spent å prøve deres egenproduserte øl!

Resembles a modern day opium den. The bar is divided in two stories. The cellar - which features a Foosball table is fairly dark and damp. The upstairs is kinda crowded but ok before the drunken students stumbles in. A good selection on tap, in theory, as they are often sold out of most of them. When it comes to bottle you can luck out as it seems that there is no real plan for what they have in the shelves. You might just luck out.

Decent selection. Their inhouse brews vary in quality, but their brown ale is amazing.

Visited shortly in October with a failed plan to return after an evening meal. Noticed with pleasure two self made brews on tap and both Ægir and Nøgne Ø on tap. The selection, although numerous, seemed a tad on the weak side, but that impression may change during my next visit. Service was friendly and the atmosphere good.

A small, quite traditional pub located in the central beer destination area of Bergen. My pepperoni pizza delivered from a nearby pizzeria was satisfying and tasted fine with a pint of Magic Rocks Cannonball served from keg. Relaxing atmosphere with Britpop in the background. Has got a decent range of bottled beers and a few interesting ones on tap, however, it is not the second best beer place in Bergen in my book (visited, 18.09.2012).
