Always nice to visit the brewery. The shop are allowed to sell all their below 4,7% alcohol beers, but the best way to experience the place is to attend at some of their event, like the Christmas beer release or home brewers day etc. Then the bar is open and its possible to sample a lot of not so common beers together with all the regular classics at all strength together with a bunch of beer enthusiasts. My score is then based on the ambience during this special occasions and not as a random visit a regular working day.

Any beer above 4,7 % ABV, listed as available at this location, can only be bought to be enjoyed on the premises and only when there’s a happening or a company kickoff or something similar. According to Norwegian legislation, they’re only allowed to sell beers at max 4.7% ABV to go. Mostly their own beers available, but every now and then they’ve had both Ægir, Mikkeller, Schneider and so on. The building that houses the brewery is a sightworthy century old power plant and looks pretty nice, and I’ve always received very friendly service. Some t-shirts, bottle openers etc can also be bought. Don’t think there’s any fixed opening hours, but weekdays from 8-16 would be my best guess. Beergeeks seems to be taken good care of if dropping in.

Had a "beer tour with food". Interesting experience. Very educational for those with little or no knowledge of beers other than lager.

I have to rate this in the context of a team building back in February 2012. The brewery have several options of tastings, we went for the one without dinner, but then again I think we tasted 12 different beers including 1 sake while being directed through the brewery. I let them know in advance about different beers I wanted to try, and they had gone out of their way to please. My entire department was really happy about the whole session, and most bought their 6 bottle case of Nøgne Ø shop strength beer, beer glass and piquet shirts. Most recommended.
