t0rin0 (1516) Do Not Resuscitate, California | September 29, 2013
Visited September 2012.
We had just finished a 3 hour stay at Akkurat trying half a dozen nearly impossible to find Cantillon beers, eating some decadent food, and running up a 5,000 SEK tab and decided to go bar hopping and tick some beers and Advocate hard before retiring to the hotel and trying a couple dozen more pale lagers. We got here shortly before last call and so couldn’t stay long but that place was pretty nice. You can either sit upstairs or go down into the basement and order beer and food there. The tap selection was interesting but not great, though it was nice trying some of the house beers. The atmosphere was quiet and dark and over all pleasant. Socialist pricing.
Another truly great Stockholm bar. Alot of unique blended beers made by Monk’s porterhouse. I first ended up in the Scotch section then the brewpub and then finally the beer section in the basement. A bit confusing for a tourist but exceptional stuff.
Wonderfully characterful cellar bar. A bit dim to start with but our excellent bar tender lit a dozen candles and we could see what we were doing. The tap list is reasonable, I stuck to the tasty Monks Cafe beers as the rest of the list was not new. There is a great De Molen fridge with a couple of winners in there I have not seen for years. Food was lovely, beautifully cooked and presented - this place and the Ardberg Embassy are really making an effort here. Service was quick and friendly and the guy knew his stuff. Overall a very pleasant experience. Hope to visit here again one day.
A fabulous old place with the bar and a series of candle lit rooms under brick arches and vaults in the cellars. I liked it immediately - it was very atmospheric, the beers were good and the service from Daniel the barman was exceptionally friendly and welcoming.

Ha a little trip (1 Hour) and try diffrents beer from the Moks Brewery, and importerted Beers. This eavning I was there, was a not! Nowlage personal who served me, and I was a bit disepointed! But the selctions of beer was werry nice!!
Cellar type beerpub. Actually this place is way larger, with some wine and coffee areas on top floors. But beer is mostly downstairs in the cellar. But this cellar is not that "cold and damp" type of cellar but really nice and warm. Narrow stairs and corridors, candles makes you feel like you have traveled back to medieval time. Good selection of beers, unfortunately quite expensive. If I was rich as Bill Gates, I would come here and drink every single bottle and barrel ’til there is not a single drop left. But... yeah I’m not :(
This is a stunning pub. Before I’d even made it all the way into the cellar, I had stopped to photograph and worship The De Molen Fridge, praise be unto it. An incredible selection of other beers awaits once you’re in the depths. Ranks of taps on the bar, and files of bottles in the fridges. The subdued lighting makes this a delightful place to grab a few end-of-the-evening beers before retiring. Top marks to the staff - I was graced by the company of the manager pretty much the whole evening, and his generosity in time, information, and "oooh, have you tried this ... <fetch>" was almost unbounded. Unfortunately, like the whole of Stockholm, and probably Sweden, the prices are astronomical. I would guess that one fancy import bottle costs 1 day’s wages here in Estonia (and I’m unemployed currently). However, I didn’t need that special edition B.C.S. variant - I had De Molen beers to drink from The De Molen Fridge, praise be unto it, instead. Brewery here shows great potential. Apart from a few personal buttons I don’t like being pushed, the beers were very solid, and the sausage beer was a stunner - yum! Must visit location in town. By the time I left, I thought it was the best bar in the Baltics. (I hadn’t been to Akkurat at that stage, but there’s no shame in coming second to Akkurat!)
