Malmo Brygghus was started last year, producing chocolate and bread as well as beer. It’s housed in an interesting building – an old chocolate factory and, once you know this, you can practically smell the chocolate oozing from the bricks. In keeping with the chocolate theme, one of the regular draft beers is a tasty Cocoa Porter. There are a few other house brews, which I think included a summer ale, and one or two guest beers.
There are a high stools around tables constructed from old barrels in the bar downstairs but the main seating area, with heavy iron tables and chairs, is upstairs in a gallery overlooking the gleaming copper brewing kit, which came from Horsens in Denmark. On the next level up there’s a restaurant although burgers are also served in the bar and the gallery. Anders had one before heading off to work and it looked very good.
Overall, the Brygghus is a comfortable as well as stylish place and the service was very friendly.

Visited since the opening; there are different levels in the building; the one where I go more often, in the basement, is smelly. The beers are usually very good, they can do a good job with hops, imperial stouts are good too, Belgian style not so much. It has been a great addition in Malmö.
Nice place, about 25 minutes walk from Central station. Brewing equipment is placed in the middle of the pub. Eight of their own beers on tap, did not check for the bottle list. Nice outdoor section that was quite crowded on a September evening when summer still was with us. We sat down indoors by a barrel and had a good time.
Visited on October 18, 2013. Got to visit before actual opening hours and take a tour of the brewery as well as parts of the building. Sat down with the brewer and chatted about the brew setup, the beers etc. Visible brewery setup inside the lower floor of the brewpub. The lower floor feels a bit dark and narrow, sort of like a smallish English pub. Upstairs is more open and light, more like a German beer hall. I think they don’t open upstairs until the lower floor is actually filled. Later on when they opened sat upstairs, sampled some of the beers and had some food. Great place, very nice attentive service, more than decent food, plenty of self made beers, I will for sure go back if and when I’m in Malmö again.
Cosy brewpub, with connection to the chocolate factory :-).. Lovely deco, rather spacy, even though it looks a bit narrow, when entering. Friendly staff, and the beers are normally in good condition, mainly from their own brewery. In 2012 they did a small, very nice, beerfestival, with other swedish micros..
For sure worth a visit :-)
Plesant and quite stylish place in an old brick building that use to be part of the chocolate factory. Brewing equipment on display in the middle of the brewpub and overlooked by a balcony upstairs. Half a dozen of their own beers on tap - some good, others no so great. Didn’t eat. Worth a visit.
Place not far from my hotel. A bit outside of the city center. Old factory building with the chocolate factory next door that is also worth the visit. Place was empty both times with just a few tables enjoying the sun outside.
Got to try a sampler of all 9 beers. Some decent beers and some others that could use some improvement. Sadly, Tomas, the brewer, was not around. Would have been great to ask more questions. Food was ok, with once again a British style food fare. Had the nachos and the Cesar salad. I guess I am used to US portions, but these were small for the price they ask.
Enjoyed by time there but much prefer their new pub Hamnmästaren near central station.
A short walk from the town centre, but worth the trek. A decent selection of their own home brewed ales and the occasional guest. The quality of their own beers has been mixed it must be said. It’s a nice enough place to hang out, especially upstairs from where you can look down on the brewery. Their wi fi router is on the third floor, so reception was impossible really. They need to do something about that for foreign guests who are not going to pay extortionate 3G roaming charges. I didn’t eat here, but the food that others were eating looked tasty. The staff here have always been super friendly and helpful.
