Very nice place. Old style. Nice furniture, easygoing and polite staff. Good food (if somewhat limited selection). Lots of good beer - but expensive.

Since opening last August, HåndverkerStuene has expanded their beer selection impressively. Today, they have the best selection of craft beer in Oslo, with six Norwegian craft beers on tap (two each from Nøgne Ø, Ægir and HaandBryggeriet), they arrange regular cask nights and beer tastings (most recently with James Watt from BrewDog) and probably have more than a hundred types of craft beer on bottle, including a good selection of Japanese (Hitachi Nest, Tamamura-Honten), Dutch (De Molen), Belgian (Cantillon, De Dolle, Duvel, Urthel and Trappists), Italian (Birrificio del Ducato) and American (Lost Abbey, AleSmith, Avery, Jolly Pumpkin) breweries. In addition to the impressive beer selection and a very good food menu, where each dish is paired not with a wine but with a beer(!), what really attracts me to HåndverkerStuene is the relaxing atmosphere and great service. Unlike other bars and pubs, the noise level is really low - I can’t remember having heard music in there, and even when crowded the layout of the place helps to keep the noise level down. Two years ago I could not have dreamt of a place like this in Oslo, now we have Olympen and the new king in town - HåndverkerStuene. Updated 2012-07-02

Modern restaurant and pub with a medieval theme. Draws a very mixed crowd, with lots of retirees on their way to/from the nearby theatres. Relaxed and quiet, especially in the afternoon. Excellent service, and good food, though the menu is sort of limited. Food is pricey, but the day’s special is less expensive. Beer selection is outstanding for Oslo: lots of Norwegian micros plus a good selection of US/Belgian imports.

A favourite pub in Oslo, soon equal to Olympen. I spent some time here Wednesday and a Thursday last week. It was not to crowded and I enoyed some good beer from Haandbryggeriet, Japan and some American micro. A place to return to, and easy to reach.

Håndverkerstuene, right in the middle of the Norwegian capital, is fast becoming one of the most exciting places for beer drinking in the whole country. On my last visit I found myself among the happy company of other ratebeerians (Sigmund, OleR and KnutAlbert) sampling quality ales from Japan, USA and Norway. The eating experience was a great treat, too - I had a delicious made tenderloin steak. According to other guests, the stout brownies, with vanilla ice cream, for dessert, was just as exciting as it sounds. With the additional qualities of a service minded and knowledgeable staff and a welcoming atmosphere, this is a very consistent beer related place, at least compared to Norwegian standards (visited on Friday 19th March 2010).

Ungstrup  (352) Citizen of the universe, Denmark | March 23, 2010
A beutiful place - really well kept with white chalked walls with decorations on, almost medival. Light wooden floor and dark wooden tables, chairs, and bar. Quite a good selection of especially bottled beers, but also some seldom beers on draft - you can get a sampler of small glasses of the draft beers, but some of them might be known to you. Pricey as everything in Norway - even for a Dane. Didn’t eat.

Sigmund  (140) Tau, Norway | January 28, 2010| Updated September 28, 2010
Decent pub and restaurant in Oslo city centre, with a nice and growing selection of Norwegian micros and quality foreign beers. The food is also good.

abemorsten  (133) Mosterøy, Norway | January 18, 2010
Stylish establishment with friendly and helpful staff. A comprehensive beer menu is available, and a sampler from the six taps of Norwegian craft brewers Nøgne Ø, Ægir and Håndbryggeriet. Plenty of quality bottled beers from around the world. Displayed in a suitably temperated fridge. A glass of water came with the first beer, and a free sampler of Håndbryggeriet Bavarian Weissen from the tap, as I expressed my disappointment with the bottled version.

KnutAlbert  (274) Oslo, Norway | January 4, 2010| Updated August 11, 2010
A fine addition to the Oslo scene - a classic restarunat redecorated and turned into a beer focused bar and restaurant. The only place in town where you can try a sampler tray of beers from various Norwegian micros. Haandbryggeriet, Nøgne ø and Ægir on tap, BrewDog in the fridge. Update: Even more taps, including guests. Great food and beer pairings.

Kestral  (29) Årnes, Norway | December 14, 2009| Updated November 9, 2010
A nice place in central downtown with a warm, dark and cozy interior, kind of classy. Good selection of norwegian micro on tap, plus some imports. Nice selection of bottles from norwegian micros as well as imported micros, loads of belgian and quite a few US and even japanese brews as well. They offer a few things others in Oslo aren’t so it’s worth a visit. Staff is also really helpful and shows interest and knowledge of what they serve. Have gotten loads of free samples here. Food is also good, a mix between traditional norwegian food and a more modern twist. The chef also implements beer in the food, or makes food for the beers they’ve got there. They’ve got cask night once a month, had a cask festival, beer dinners, and other events as well, making this the place for beer in Oslo.
