I came here at the suggestion of Sigmund for the Mandag Squared event. They had an amazing lineup of beers at a great price, 250 NOK. AND they had a Micahel Jackson movie! The real Michael Jackson, not the dead popstar. More than 70 people attended the tasting, probably because the next day was a holiday. The beers weenjoyed from the bottle list after the tasting were even more amazing. Thoroughly enjoyable, and definitely worth the trip from Oslo.

This place certainly lives up to its reputation. The interior is lovely, with a regal unique take on the traditional British pub setup. The draft beer range is solid, with a nice range of Scandinavian offerings, including numerous from Norway. The bottle list is even more impressive. Numbering into the hundreds, it has a vast diversity of styles from breweries all around the world. The servers were friendly and efficient, and had no issues speaking English. Of course, this being Norway, it isn’t an inexpensive experience.

Overall, this is probably the best beer destination in Stavanger, and if you are in the area it’s a must-visit place. World-class.

Probably the best pub in Norway! I went there 5 nights in a row on a recent business trip, which pretty much sums it up! It has a great selection both in bottle and on draft of top quality world-wide brews (including few dodgy ones!). Best part is the extensive Nøgne Ø selection, which I spent most of time getting through. Prices are not cheap, but no much more expensive that a dodgy pint of yellow fizzy elsewhere in Stav! A top quality beer venue.

Norways best! A bar that shows a real passion for beer as the best drink in the world. Beers from all over the world are displayed in their beer book, together with some useful background info on beers and brewers.

Finally, I got a chance to visit the pub that is supposed to be the best beer destination in Norway. I was not let down! It’s a rather monumental, carefully made and well-kept place in the best British pub style. Two floors both of them with a quite large, half-moon bar. Location is very good, right in central part of the old town with its narrow, brick-covered streets. Very well selected beer menu on taps and bottles. The 21 taps display interesting beers when it comes to different countries, breweries and styles. The huge bottled menu is like a reading book, well written and very informative about each of the bottles. Beers are served in different sizes, including beer trays. Friendly, attentive and clever service in a welcoming atmosphere. Truly a home away from home (Meet-up with the local RBHD group on 18. June and then again on my own 20. June 2015).

My local favourite! A pub for beer enthusiasts. If you are in for a excessively revelry, find another place! Great service and many among the staff are really knowledgeable about the beers they are serving. Beer from Nøgne Ø, Ægir, Haandbryggeriet, Lervig, Berentsens and many more on tap. Kinn Vestkyst IPA from cask - fantastic! (Visited October 22nd 2010)

Pretty good once you get past the usual heart attack over the prices. Only had barmaid on fora (busy) Saturday afternoon

Visited on a Monday and then again on a Tuesday. Excellent selection of beers an an amazing catalogue/menu. Definitely the best pub I’ve been to in Norway. Knowledgeable staff and an excellent selection of beer both on tap and in bottles.

Finally I got to visit this bar, with the probably broadest selection in Norway. In addition to the selection, it is a cozy place with knowledgeable staff and quite nice interior. In addition to selling most of the beers normally available in Norway, they also initiated their own import, something highly unusual in Norway. Way to go! And I am definately going back.

Easily the best beer pub in Norway. The only real disadvantage to it is that it doesn’t serve food. The ambience is great, like a real English local pub. The music is usually good, and never too loud. And the selection is the best in the country, and has been for at least a decade. I’ve spent many happy evenings here, and don’t think I’ve ever had a beer anywhere else in the city. I’m perfectly content that this should be so.
