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.

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.

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)

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.

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.

Visited on a Friday and Saturday afternoon and evening in June 2011.
Very central location with a friendly and in most cases, knowledgeable staff.
The selection was very good, 21 beers on tap and several hundreds bottles. Very nice booklet with details of the different beers, the best one I’ve seen.
In most cases it is possible to order the different draft beers in half pints, thumbs up!
Prices are high, but that was no surprise because I have been to Norway many times before. An example: Nøgne Ø Blonde (Kos på Groos) did cost 128 NOK (thats about 23 USD)
I would love to visit again!

The best beer bar in my home town Stavanger, and the best in all of Norway. They’re really putting some effort into stocking the best possible beer selection - by Norwegian standards, that is. Nøgne Ø and HaandBryggeriet beers are available. 12 beers on tap and more than 300 bottled. "Special samples night" ("Onsdag i Annen") every other Wednesday. Occasional beer courses. Friendly staff.
