Been there on a tip from Knut Albert, only stopped for a beer, standing, because my friends weren’t interested and waiting for me outside (eh). A nicely decorated restaurant that doesn’t have an enormous amount of taps but what they have is quality, rare, mostly local and balanced style-wise. I ended up with the lovely Ægir IPA because my brain wasn’t working and I didn’t ordered their new and possibly rare Altbier. Still, the beer I got was more than enjoyable. Very good service too. When I come back to Oslo, I’m definitely going here again.

One of the focal points on the Norwegian beer scene. A real interest in beer and food, makes this a must stop when in Oslo. Norwegian as well as Scandinvian micros on tap, good food, what more is there to wish for?

Nice and quite place centrally placed in Oslo. Great selection and friendly staff. Did not try the food but the menu seems quite tempting. Probably the best spot in Oslo right now.

It’s probably not my first choice to eat when out for a beer or four, but it’s my first choice for beer, and also a good choice if you’re out to get a nice meal. Quite impressive line-up with lots of import and hard to get domestic beers, a glance at the availabilty list should reveal that. They also serve several domestic craft beers on tap, and you can buy a sampler tray with six beers if you’re out to tick or wants to decide which is your favorite. A must when in Oslo.

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.
