I have some mixed feeling about this place. Visiting this during the peak season of July this is a bit quieter and relaxed place compared with the rest of Løkken pubs/restaurants. It’s quite nice to sit outdoor in the shadow and sample the four available beers. At the same time the other guests seems to consist of a few lighter worn out regulars preferring Carlsberg all day long. I have nothing against my companions, and actually find it positive that a brewpub has is position as a local bar for the people living in the area. It’s just a bit sad to witness nobody drinking the local beers. It’s natural to compare this to a few other brewpubs I have visited where the customer seems to prefer wine over beer. OK the Løkken beer seems to have rather varying quality, but at least today three out of four where in excellent condition. Not very exiting beers, but nice enough and definitively a better choice than Carlsberg/Ceres. I actually believe Løkkkens other establishment seems to be the main customer for their local beer, as it seems to be around 30-40 % share Løkken beer on the tables everywhere else based on my observation. Something seems to be a bit out of order here. Anyway, the place is a bit worn out but charming, the barman is polite and service good enough, even if he seems to be rather busy chatting with the locals. Not so much to choose between of beer besides their own and Carlsberg/Ceres pilsner.

I’ve been trying to visit this place several times earlier, but always met a closed door. Løkken is a summer town, and my visits has mostly been Sundays off-season, so no luck until now. The place is quite cozy, with a nice patio, but the biggest problem with the place are its selection. The Løkken beers are quite uninteresting, if not unpleasant, on bottle, and on tap there’s still a lot of butterscotch. Combining that with an uninteresting array of beers, it’s certainly not a place I’ll drive a few miles extra for in the future. Enjoyed sitting on the patio though, but missed having a proper beer while doing it.

Visited July 2012: Cosy little place. We sat in the brewery and had their five beers. Decent drinkable beers but nothing out of the ordinary. Place now divided between a brewery on one side and the adjacent pub. This rating is for the brewery.

Classic brewpub interior with brick walls, bar with a huge kobber kedlel ( not used for brewing ) rather heavy dark wooden tables and chairs, a selection of paintings done by locals on the walls. Backroom with the brewery and a small shop, selling house beers and glassware. 5 taps, but only 2 of theire own beers on when we visited, 2 where empty, 1 had Ceres Royal pilsner. Had 2 other own beers botled, aswell as botled Carlberg pilsner. Service was okies, but seemed more interested in chatting with the locals.No food awaible. Overall it seems like the places is in 2 minds about either a real brewpub concentrating on theire own stuff, or been a mainstream pub selling macro stuff to appeal to more people ( tourists ) Still ill prefer this place over the various pubs selling macro stuff whenever in Løkken.
