gyllenbock  (183) Stockholm, Sweden | June 20, 2011
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.

Odland  (34) , Norway | February 5, 2011| Updated May 24, 2013
The largest selection of beers in Norway by far. Loads on bottle and 15+ on tap including cask. The staff could know more about the beers thay serve. However, it must be a grand task to keep track on over 500 beers. The bar must get kudos for holding several different gatherings for beer interested people. Onsdag i annen and Strikk og drikk. The bar also offer a wide selection of spirits. Biggest drawback is the prices in this bar.

lillepersille  (12) , Norway | January 30, 2011
This place has the best selection available in Stavanger, possibly in Norway. Lots of weird stuff. Served a barley wine which had passed it’s due date a year ago, but props for trying - some beers do get better with age :) Steep prices, but I guess its neccesary with the selection. Good place. Other downside: the age limit, 25, which they keep quite strictly. I was not allowed in at 2200h on a friday, with both my parents, at the age of 23. Ridiculous.

Expensive, but thats what you get when the selections is 500+. Great place to try beers you won’t find any other place in Norway.
