I think this is the best Bishops Arms in Goteborg. Very good selection of beers mostly on bottles but you can find some interesting taps too. Friendly and very helpful staff.

Updated after my latest visit on August 31, 2013.
Age limit is 23 years, ID might be required if asked for.
Patio outside in summer season only.
Centrally located on "Järntorget" square, easy to get to by tram or bus. Perhaps not so good to drive to and find parking. Close to many other great beer places, so can easily be part of a Göteborg pub crawl.
This evening 27 taps with different beers available as of the bartender. Some taps have the same beers on though, I’d say max 20 different beers on tap at a given time. Many taps stay the same over the year, but 4-6 change fairly often, updated usually on their Facebook page which the guest taps are.
Apparently about 200 bottles available, not all of them visible in the fridges, many are in the cellar.
No problem getting a "galopp" serving, i.e. a 17-20 cl serving in a wine glass, if you want to sample smaller servings of your beer.
The youngest of the three BA bars in Göteborg. It also feels like the one with the most light, perhaps because this is not located in a cellar? The best of the BA pubs in Göteborg and as for the ones I’ve visited the best in Sweden.
I go here fairly often and have been since they opened.
Staff seems to more or less change quite often, though some regular (good) ones remain. Rather big outdoor seating in summer, a bit smallish and narrow inside. If you’re lucky you’ll get to see the beer cellar, located under the entrance!
Food has been very bad once, which led me to not eat here for many months. Have had better luck since.
Have the "Ocean (Järntorgets) Arbetarporter" brewed specially for them, and afaik always available on tap.
A place I tend to go back to again and again.
Once a year, usually in October, has the "porter week" Sunday through Thursday, where many taps are sporting black beers; mainly porters and stouts, but also black lager and black IPA etc.
Like all BA are fairly expensive, but they did look over their bottled prices earlier this year and many became reasonably priced instead of silly as before.

I liked this pub, visited an early afternoon March 27 th. I wanted to try many new beer and ordered several 25 cl samples, mostly Swedish micro. Friendly and helpful staff and nice pub-interior. Did not eat

Archtypical English pub atmosphere, and some tables and chairs outside. Tap selection was good, lots of swedish, a few cask (including NC Red Seal Pale Ale). A very good bottle list too, including some long lost gems - Ølfabrikken Islay Cask Stout, Winter Porter, Nøgne Ø Imperial Stout Highland Edition etc. Prices are pretty expensive as with all swedish places, but pretty much in the same area as other Swedish beer places. I had two different vintage of Närke Stormaktsporter - 2005 and 2008 (they also had 2006), and they were priced at 205 and 195 SEK. The Kaggen Stormaktsporter was on the menu, but they were out of it none the less. The Kaggen was 125 SEK cheaper than it is at The Rover.

The Bishop’s Arms pub at Järntorget in Göteborg have the best beer selection of the three Bishop’s Arms pubs in Göteborg, with a nice draft selection (Weyerbacher, Amager and Närke on my last visit) and lots of good stuff on bottles - including old bottles of Närke Kaggen, Ølfabrikken Winterporter and Nøgne Ø Dark Horizon. If that isn’t enough to warrant a visit, their house beer is Ocean Arbetarporter - a delicious imperial porter from Oceanbryggeriet only sold on draft here. Finally, Järntorget opens at noon on Saturdays and Sundays and is thus perfect for an early visit by beer tourists :) Last visit: Feb 4, 2012.

A nice pub in classic Bishops Arms style. At Järntorget in Gotenburg with a nice outdoor resturant.

The best bishop’s arms in gothenburg. A very nice interior aged back a couple of centuries. Very professional bar men. Since it’s not placed in the exact touristic centre of town it tends not to be very crowded.

One of the best Bishops Arms-pubs in Sweden. Always lots of good porters, both on tap and bottle and a huge patio.

The normal BA setup here, and I like it. They had a very nice selection of tap when I visited earlier this year. Plus for Stone Ruination on tap. Never looked at the bottled selection since I got stuck on the tap beers.

Visited with Gnoff. Nice atmosphere that feels very British with an old Victorian style, many great beers on tap (many local ones) and friendly service. They have a lot of rarities that don’t go to the US market or even outside of Sweden. It’s Sweden, and yes, once again beers are damn expensive. You might end up spending a good 89SEK for a tasteless lager.
