Bryne  (382) Bryne, Norway | August 16, 2014
A world class brewpub? 9 beers from Mack’s own microbrewery, Ølhallen and an impressing amount of domestic craft beers on tap. Ølhallen has taken a conscious choice and only offers Norwegian craft beers on tap. Good service and staff were both service minded and knowledgeable. Free newspapers, a stuffed polar bear, a fireplace and lots of local history photographs and beer labels on the walls. An amazing place in Arctic Tromsø. (Visited July 10th 2014)

This place is one of the best bars I’ve visited, with freaking 50 taps dedicated to Norwegian micros from all over the country it’s unique as far as I know. Their own beers labeled Ølkjeller were all excellent, at least the four I tried. The clientele was a mix between tourists, and local drunks - one of the latter entertained a group of Germans with a rather eccentric performance. The service was good. Beats any place in Oslo, I could easily move to Tromsø knowing a place like this exists.

Some of Norway’s best ales are now available from 50 taps behind the bar. Lots of beers from Nøgne Ø, Haandbryggeriet, Ægir, Kinn, Austmann, 7 Fjell and so one. This is also the best place to sample beers from Mack’s microbrewery in addition to their range of lager beers, displayed on another 17 taps at the front of the bar. Just great.

Ølhallen (the Beer Hall) is an institution in Tromsø and has been serving beer since 1928. The Hall is connected to the northernmost brewery in the world – The Mack Brewery - and function both as a Brewpub and as an outlet for its products. This is the only place serving beer in Tromsø that opens as early as 9 a.m. But they also close early, usually at 5 or 6 p.m. (Saturdays at 3 p.m. and closed on Sundays), so be sure to check the opening hours before visiting. Central location in the main street of Tromsø. Friendly and attentive staff. They serve most different kind of lagers, but in 2005 the brewery started producing ales. Ask for the months Bryggmesterens Spesial (The brewer’s special ale), and you might be lucky to find a bitter, a pale ale or a stout from cask. Among the lagers the most interesting should be the seasonal xmas beer, and a very nice münchener (Bayer) and a bock. Highly recommended is also Gullbok – a blend of two strong lagers. No food, except snacks – try the dried fish. Non smoking inside. The guided tours at the Mack Brewery starts here. A pub crawl in Tromsø usually begins at Ølhallen.

Watch out! A short walk through the ice and slush for an evening drink ended in dissapointment. This place closes at 18.00!! Returned the next day to find a spacious and characterful pub with very good staff who helped me a lot cleaning out all the Mack beers available even to the unlabelled Christmas porters in the fridge. Obviously Mack dominates here but the beers are not bad at all and certainly tasted fresh. Service was always snappy even when the place suddenly filled with tourists. Prices are very expensive but you can get small glasses which helps. Overall a pleasant way to spend a couple of hours. Well worth seeking out.

Located beneath the building that used to house the Mack brewery, Ølhallen is a must see for visitors. Open early and close early, popular with both the local drunks, hung over party people and tourists. Good ambience and a large selection of Mack beers.

Crowded place, with tourists and drunks. Some special beers, but not much to write home about...

We visited here on Saturday 19th January 2013 (me, Loz & Isobel) in the company of Rune & Finn and Runes wife who joined us later but I have forgotten her name. On entering the pub the bar is ahead of you and there are drinking areas around it to the front and left and stretching along past it to your right where we sat in a small alcove. I understand that the bar dates back to the 1920’s. We had a couple of the seasonal Christmas beers in bottle but were unanle to try the CCCP which was just going on as they had some dispense issues, we also tried the Bok. The bar was quite busy for 3pm on a Saturday and the area off to the left was full with a large group. I would like to thank Finn & Rune for their wonderful company and for keeping popping up with bottled beers. I liked this place, the staff were friendly, there was plenty of seating and the beer choice was good, however I preferred Skarven overall for atmosphere and general ambience.

Nice place, with a stuffed polar bear. Very good service (one of the bartender even speaks spanish). They only have Mack beer on tap, don’t know what they have on bottles.
