Gaasa opened up in late May 2012 but has already established itself as a very good beer bar and, more importantly, they provide the first real beer garden in Oslo. Located out back, the wooden benches and tables provide a quiet and secluded space to enjoy a good draft beer. Gaasa has a nice selection of bottled beers (Le Baladin , 3 Fonteinen, Omnipollo) and four craft beers on taps - including its own house ale, the hoppy and very tasty Gaasa IPA (brewed at Schouskjelleren, just up the street). There is currently no food service, but the owners are working on a concept.

Cozy and intimate indoors, spacious and green outdoors, and no TVs showing soccer! A limited beer selection, but only high quality beers. 5 (or was it 6?) beers on tap, the rest are bottles stored in a bit too cold fridge. Also a good selection of wine, if you are so inclined. The only staff member present yesterday was very helpful, knowledgeable and service minded. He even offered a sample for free! Unfortunately there is no food at the moment, but the owner is planning on BBQ-ing during weekends. I’ll definitely visit Gaasa again.

Nice place outside the most common tourist trap places. A fine patio and a nice beer selection.

An old wooden building that’s been restored and turned into a pub. They have two separate outdoor courtyards, plus a number of rooms inside the house. The vibe is rustic and sort of modern. The selection is not huge, but very good. The food menu had only two items, one of which was ox stew in a cardboard bowl. Smallish, good, and inexpensive. I really liked the place, and the outdoor part must be among the nicest places in Oslo in summer.

It’s a great place to be especially on hot summer days in Oslo. There are two wonderful patios on both sides of the bar room, both are in the backyard sheltered from the busy city streets. The house beer is called Gaasa IPA, a delicious dry hopped thirst quencher made by the nearby Schouskjelleren. The other beers on tap in late May came from Beer Here, Thornbridge and Evil Twin. For the moment the bottle selection consists of mostly American beers from breweries like Southern Tier, Brooklyn, Sierra Nevada, Rogue, Jolly Pumpkin, among others. A few dishes are served by a friendly, easy going staff. Short way over the bridge to Schouskjelleren, but no need to hurry up from this great new find in Oslo. Directly from 6 degrees Celsius in Tromsø to 28 in Oslo, Gaasa IPA came to my rescue (visited, 24.05.2012).

Located in Mangelsgården in the city centre. Large and nice patio. Relaxed and pleasant atmosphere with friendly staff. Small, but good selection of craft beer (Italian, Belgian, Swedish, Danish, American) and their own beer Gaasa IPA made at Schouskjelleren Mikrobryggeri.
