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.

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.

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.

Extremely many beers and a very nice amount of IPAs! Though the experation date was exipired long ago on 2/5 bottles bought. Also a bit Pricy, but thats understandable with that variation. Great place! I will revisit!

Beer heaven! Beer in every corner. Nice staff, but surprisingly they didnt know as much as I expected them to about beer. Still, the best place in Norway for experiencing beer. Warning: "norwegian" (oil)-prices :)

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.

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)

Very nice place, british pub looks, very good service for norwegian standars and some of the staff actually knows about beer. Very wide selection, norwegian micros, international lagers, rare ales. The only down is the very high prices. Yes, is Norway, I know. But still. Worth the try, recommended

The best selection of beer in Norway with almost 500 different beers.The best part of cardinal,exept for the selection, is that the people behind the bar often know what they are talking about. They also change the beer that is on two of the taps. Usually different microbrew-beers like Nøgne Ø and Haandbryggeriet for example.
My favorite place!
