It took the brewpub a couple of months to find its style, after the January 2013 opening, but over the last year it has matured into a confident brewpub with from 1 to 6 of their own beers on tap and about a dozen guest beers on tap. It is also very popular, usually packed on Fridays and Saturdays so beer lovers are advised to come early in the week. Brewmaster Dave Gardonio, formerly of Ægir, has done a great job composing recipes, resulting in a large number of unusual beers (unusual in the sense that he hasn’t jumped on the hop wagon but rather has focused on malt and traditional beer styles - such as steam beer, kellerbier, roggenbier, saison, mild ale etc). But, naturally, he also has to brew IPAs from time to time, as demand for hoppy beers is high everywhere. What I really like about Crow is the big blackboard behind the bar, listing info about each beer on tap. And with 19 taps you really need that! I miss a wider food selection than the kebab currently served, but otherwise feel that the Crow has found its style. Downstairs is fairly open, with simple seating, upstairs a bit more secluded and cozy - allowing you to look down at the microbrewery. Along with Schouskjelleren, Crowbar is my favorite brewpub (out of 6) in Oslo. Updated: 2014-05-22

Crowbar & Bryggeri (...and Brewery) is one of Oslo’s latest additions to the brewpub scene. It is a great place, which has helped the neighborhood lift itself quite a bit. The interior reminds me of the modern Moeder Lambic in Bruxelles, with the distressed brick walls, rough tabletops and so on. On paper they have a big fridge, however, they aren’t very good at keeping it filled with new and exiting beers. On tap however, the story is something else. They have 4-6 beers brewed in-house, which are fine beers, nearly all the time, as well as lots of guest beers. 20 taps with constantly changing beers from other Norwegian brewers (as close as Schouskjelleren and Amundsen to beers from further away like Bergen and Florø and so on), Danish, Swedish, British, American and the occational Australian and others. I enjoy this place a lot, and since I live around the corner, I feel it has enhanced the quality of life in the erea.

A somewhat hyped place, but with a good selection of beer.

I am a bit biased about this place. Good beer selection, both on tap and bottles. Sample trays avalable, only sun- and mondays, very loud music, played on a lousy music system, the speakers sounds like there are blown elements, good music is transfered to noise. Why does everybody behind the bar talk englih.... Just a grumpy old mans opinion, will revisit for sure, but hey, get your act together, sample trays on thursdays as well, huh?- Or is this too much to ask for a brewpub?

Quiet when we visited on a Sunday. Gloomy industrial interior with uncomfortable seating, interior as far from "cosy" as it possibly can get. You come here for the beer ticks, and nothing else. The lady bartender was friendly enough, though. Plenty of taps (both house brews and others), and a rater’s Mekka, as the beers change often, and you can get 20 cl of all beers, at a fairly reasonable price (for Norway). Near Café Sara and Schouskjelleren, two other "must" places for a pub crawl in the area.

Trendy place with a trendy English speaking staff. Varied service. 20 taps and a decent bottle selection. Brewing equipment displayed in the rear. Two floors. Musics too loud ..

Lovely architecture, a nice selection of in-house brews and guest ones on tap, good food (I’ve been told) and a table tennis table. What can be better than a quick ping pong match with a 20 cl glass of imperial stout in you hand? A beer flight with 6 beers (5 own their own plus a sixth of your choose) served in brim full 20 cl milk glasses for NOK 250. But don’t ask for a coke, "This is a beer place, you can have a ginger ale if you need something non-alcoholic!". Free water, though.

Huge industrial looking space with brick walls and rustic details. Upon my visit they had 6 taps with their own beer, the rest was filled with high end imports and some solid Norwegian craft brews. They had a pretty solid bottle list consisting mostly of imports that are hard to come by in Norway. The prices were a bit steep, but it is a plus that you can by all of the beers in both 20cl and 40cl glasses. I went there on tuesday evening, but I was told that it gets really packed during weekends.

High-ceilinged red brick and wood-decorating modern open interior. Multi-roomed and with a windy staircase in the back and a chicken roastery and whatever, so it’s an interesting space but doesn’t have a lot of character. On a Friday night it was packed with college-aged drinkers, seemingly just another drinking spot in a neighborhood full of drinking spots. As a brewery I guess it’s pretty small, they only had three of their own beers on tap with a lot of Mikkeller / Beer Here / To Ol / Nogne-type stuff. And the two house beers I tried weren’t anything great. I cracked a smuggled bottle of Bestefar instead. Given the high price of booze in Norway this is pretty typical behavior, I’m told. For this place, it was a good decision since I found nothing on the chalkboard that was interesting or good.
