Probably would give a higher rating if it weren’t for Akkurat, in any other city would easily be the best place for beer. The selection is not quite as large, but did have beers that Akkurat did not so worth visiting both places. Enjoyed the atmosphere better and has the added bonus of carrying their own beers.

Visited here with Per (whom I can’t thank enough) and got a first class treatment because of that so I can’t really tell how it is when you usually walk up here. Didn’t have time to explore the entire place, but the area around the bar was completely full, while the benches near the brewing equipment were completely empty when we arrived. Strange. Still, the tap list featured among other things (of varying interest), 3 of their own beers, all of which were very good (a 4.1 and a 3.8, ’nuff said), and the bottles that Per got us were very rare, very cool Riegele stuff. Ever had a barrel aged German Imperial Stout? how about a German IPA? No? Well we got them here! Can’t comment on the prices, but I doubt that they’re worse than at the BAs. Another must visit! And I do wonder how the other two compare.

Monk’s Café is loaded with rare and delectable beers. I was especially impressed by their selection of Northern Italian craft beers and rare Belgian ales. They have several beers from the famous brewery Struise and the great Swedish brewery Dugges. Overall, I am guessing they have about 500 beers, many of them not found elsewhere. I found the staff to be very kind as well and the layout of the place is pretty cool. There were also some interesting beers on draught, but I was mainly interested in the bottles. My second favorite beer destination in Stockholm, obviously behind Akkurat.

Great selection of bottled beers. The staff is friendly and helpful but sometimes a bit slow. The food is ok but not the reason to go here.

Huge draught selection. Great beers brewed within the premises, by a award winning brewmaster. Very friendly, knowledgeable service. Good, bit pricey food. Like all pubs around the globe, avoid rush-hours, that is weeknights 20.00-24-00. Simple task, ey?

A nice selection of beers from smaller breweries as well as their own brewery in the pub. Change their selection of beer regularly with theme weeks focusing on single regions.

Very ambitious bar and restaurant that started brewing on their own in the summer 2008. Good and varied draught beer selection, but the real treat is the bottle beer selection. It seems they have changed the original idea to always stock this or that many thousand beers (of which quite many where fairly unnecessary) to having theme periods, for example a Dutch month, then a Belgian spring and Italian weeks and so on. I think that is a much better idea. They did have some initial problems with service, but bar staff is getting quite skilled and friendly. Food is good.

The service was a bit mixed. One bartender was a really nice guy where as the other just seemed to be in a bad mood, which wasn’t very helpful. They have a huge bottle selection with beers from many countries. Beware though: A few of them are not from the countries listed. Their taps were largely uninteresting though. They had plenty of Belgians and a lot of De Molen as well. The food was good. Prices were a bit high though.

On my way to Linköping I stopped for late lunch at this place located not more than about ten minutes walk from the central railway station in Stockholm. I have never been here before, and my visit turned out to be a very pleasant experience. In a couple of hours I had a freshly made Caesar Salad with chicken and bacon, three of their own brews – a delicious Orange ale, a fine weissen called Pauline and the splendid Patagonia IPA – and two bottles from their impressive beer list. The focus of the week was on Big Beers from the USA. Just like heaven for a ratebeerian. Irreproachable service, cosy atmosphere and relaxing. It is rather expensive and most of the beers are served in rather large amounts, so be sure to bring some friends for rating purposes (visited 01.09.2009)

Very fun place..enormous bottle list that seemingly never ends. They brew their own small batch stuff that was very nice. About 6-8 of their beers were on tap along with guest taps. This place also has an affinity for Goose Island beers and the bottle list included some weird GI stuff I had never heard of. Lots of odd bottles where you are bound to find something interesting. Not necessarily cheap though and De Molen Tsarina Esra Reserva here was priced at some hilarious price that I think was a joke...something like 1,999 Swedish kroner. Definitely fun and worth going to.
