Biskopen is one of my favorite bar in Bergen for many reasons: 1. itís a bar that evolves. For the last year, they went from a selection of 20 beers to a selection of almost 120 bottle beers (probably the largest selection at the moment in Bergen). They have beers that you wonít find in other bars such as the Japanese Red Rice or the Bierwerk from Namibia. 2. the staff gives great recommandations and will always be nice to you, as long as you are nice to them. 3. it is a cozy place, with dim light and a fire place, perfect to fight the rainy Bergen weather. Not the place to get wasted, but fun is allowed! 4. the bar is one of the few that are open everyday until 3.00 (alcohol serving stops at 2.30).
Definitely a place to go regularly.

One of my favourite Places for a quiet beer! Cosy pub with a good selection of bottled beers from various breweries. The tap selection is not amazing, but good enough. They also have a very good selection of Whiskyís, Gin and rum.
Friendly staff whoís helpful with beer recommendations.
The location is in the centre of Bergen, Close to the cinema. The pub is dimly lit, with good and not too loud music.
Top tip: Try one of the large (0.75L) beers with a few friends, they give a great value for Your Money and every singe one Iíve tried has been an eye opener to the world of beer.
Pros: Good selection, Nice Place to go out with friends
Cons: Not the biggest selection of beers on tap, can be crowded at times.

Well located pub in Bergen. Unimpressive tap selection with mostly commercial beers. No bottle list per say, your selection is inside a few small fridges behind the bar with the basic lineup from Nogne, the usual boring stuff from Aass, some other common Norwegian offferings. Trendy young patrons, cute girls, trendy music. Not many great places to drink in Bergen but you can skip this one.

Did I like this place or not? Itís hard to say. There are so many great beer bars in this part of Bergen and Biskopen does not stand out in the crowd. To bad, because this is a nice pub with an ok beer selection. Only one Waldemars on tap. (Visited September 13th 2013)

A nice and cozy pub in the "beer district"of Bergen. Has a few beers on tap including the semi-microbrewed Waldemar series from Hansa. Has a decent selection of beers on bottle, and a couple not found elsewhere in town. The basement area is like being in somebodys livingroom with soft and cozy couches. Worth a visit. Crowded at weekends.

Centrally located between Baran Cafe and Naboen. Dark brown English pub interior, with mirrors and low energy consumtion in the lightning department. 8 taps, and a relative good bottled selection. Plays music at a level which allows communicatiomn at normal speaking volume.

Nice place to go with friends who arenít that into beer. Very good prices for a place with decent selection. Also in close proximity to Baran, Naboen and Henrik, which makes it perfect in that way.

A nice little corner pub in central Bergen, located opposite Naboen and close to the cinemas and theatre. British-style "brown pub" with elevated bar and a basement section, featuring an above average bottle selection from Norwegian and foreign micros. One of the few places which serve Hansa-Borgís "Waldemar" microbrewery beers on tap. The atmosphere varies from a cozy candlelight jazz vibe to a typical soccer pub when there matches are shown on TV. Very friendly and forthcoming staff, with a fair knowledge about their product and a jovial attitude. Definitely worth a visit if you are doing a pub crawl in the "beer area" of Bergen.
