Excellent service! Well updated beer menu. We came early a Saturday evening and left about 22.00. Few customers during our stay, which is a typical phenomenon here in Norway. Most people arrive at the pub after 22.00, many already well drunk... Bad for business, but great for me! I like to enjoy my beer when its not to crowded. Then I also have the bartender "all by myself" To quote "The Terminator": I ll be back! . (Visited February 4th 2012)

Decent selection of bottles, pale lagers mostly, but also some Nøgne Ø.
Best place for beer in Sandnes, but if you know your beers, take the train to Stavanger.

Nice pub not far from the train and bus station. Very relaxed on a Tuesday evening. Good selection of bottles, especially Scandinavian beer. Major brands on tap, but also some interesting ones. At the time of my visit there was one from Mikkeller and one from Ægir I think.

Melkebaren (= "The Milk Bar") is located in Bøndenes Hus (= The Farmers’ House) in the centre of Sandnes, where a milk bar actually was located in my childhood days. The bar has now a rustic interior, which would look slightly misplaced in any other town than Sandnes. The beer selection is more than decent, I’m not sure if that can be said about all the punters. Selection of bottled beers includes Nøgne Ø and some fine Belgians. Very favourable prices on 3 tap beers Mondays and Tuesdays. Did not eat, only food is nachos and two kinds of pizza. Friendly staff.

Adjusted my rating of their selection from 10 to 12. Vastly improved international selection, You can find quite a few rarities nowadays.
Reviewed on a mid-week evening having a few beers with a couple of friends. The place has a wooden bar with around 10 chairs. There are 5 booths to house 6 people each and a pool table. This is my third time here, and by far the best evening. Decent selection of Nøgne Ø bottles, their world wide beer selection is OK, but not very exciting, Service was splendid; we were waited at the table by a charming young lady that said she was thrilled to discover that beer was so much more than pilsner. They had everything we asked for in stock (which is an improvement from earlier visits). All in all, I’m happy about this place.

Nice and relaxing environment at a midweek early afternoon. I know they are clever with different activities as quiz, beer tasting etc. and probably lot more crowdie then and during week-ends. Anyway I had a good opportunity to talk to the bartender and learned about their beer philosophy. It’s certainly not the easiest thing to run a good beer bar at a small place like Sandnes. One of the challenge is the fact that’s it’s only a 30 minute train journey away to Cardinal, the Norwegian pub with the biggest selection. But I actually found a few beers that are not available at Cardinal and also a few treasures that have been sold out from other places long time ago. So this place can definitively be well worth the trip if you are a beer hunter in the area and do visit them anyway any now and then if you live in the area just for the support. The beer selection is anyway definitive among the better in Norway.

The place to drink beer in the greater Sandnes-area. Great beer selections, and if you look hard enough you’ll find some gems. Mikkeller, JP, NØ, Green Flash, Stone +++
The "cheap"(shitty) beers are expensive, and the "expensive" (good and rare) beers are cheap, atlest compared to the insane prices at Cardinal in Stavanger. I would rather go to Melkebaren for special bottled beer, than Cardinal for this reason.
