My piece of heaven on earth. in this bar you can relax with a great beer and let time fly. As Cardinal’s motto says "A good story in every bottle".

Centrally located bar, decorated in traditional British fashion. Even though the place is fairly large, over two floors, it is getting ever more popular and at times gets almost ridiculously crowded. With more than 20 taps, of which some are exclusive, and over 500 different bottles at any given time, Cardinal is definitely in the big league when it comes to selection. And the quality follows quantity, giving quite a few goodies to choose from. Also the informative home page deserves due credit. In general staff is very knowledgeable, and will take their time giving good suggestions and service even at the busiest of times. As for value this is not the cheapest place, and even for Norway the prices tend to be on the steep side.

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.

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!

Questo locale è ingiustamente sottovautato, meriterebbe di stare nella top ten dei locali europei per la selezione e il lavoro eccellente che fanno con la birra.

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.

Huge selection from this bar in two stores. Many norwegian microbrews on taps. A very descriptive beer menu card. As elsewhere in Norway prices are exceptionally high but compared to shopprices the levt is absolutely fair.
Can be rather crowded. Nice and comfortable in the afternoons.

Cardinal is one of the top two bars in the country, easily offering the best bottle selection. According to one of the bartenders, 529 different beers all together. All these are not always in stock. Out of the twentytwo taps, unfortunately almost half are macros. The excellent menu book describing their beers lists 50 IPA’s and nearly 25 stouts. The prices are quite high, even by Norwegian standards.
