Mathallen seems like a must-visit food spot in Oslo. There are a number of grills and kitchens making fresh plates of food in front of you, a few crafts and goods sellers, and seafood markets selling to-eat or to-go foods. Same sort of feel as Östermalmshallen in Stockholm and the Boqueria in Barcelona, though much smaller. Within this hall you have this dedicated craft beer bar. The guy who took care of us I think was a/the manager. Very knowledgeable about beer, friendly to chat with, didn’t push any particular style or beers, and gladly took back an infected bottle that was purchased. It’s a nice place to wander and shop and eat and drink, and you can throw it in with Schouskjelleren and Glød for a walk along the creek path.

Mathallen in Oslo should be of interest for beer drinkers coming to Oslo. The hall contains four beer destinations; Smelteverket is a large bar and restaurant downstairs with quite a few Norwegian microbrews on tap. The bottle shop Ølhandleriet is located upstairs with about 200 bottles below 4.75% abv to choose from. Its range of Norwegian beers should be one of the best in Norway. On the ground floor you’ll find Grünerløkka Brygghus and Øltorget in addition to places like Smaken av Valdres which offers beers from the local region. Øltorget has got an amazing selection of about 300 bottled beers and about 10-12 interesting, mostly Norwegian, ales on tap. There are shelves filled with beers from Denmark (Amager, Coisbo, Midfyns Bryghus, Hornbeer, Mikkeller etc), USA, Holland, from Trappist breweries and, of course, from Norwegian breweries like Nøgne Ø, Haandbryggeriet, Ægir, Kinn etc. I had two beers from the excellent Norwegian microbrewery called Sundbytunet. Friendly and attentive service. Øltorget, like the other places in the hall, opens at 10.00 in the morning (at noon on Sundays), except for Mondays when the hall is closed. It took me less than 20 minutes to walk from the city center (National Theatre) to Mathallen (visited 11.12.2012).

Conveniently placed inside the Mathallen market hall. The taps may have some interesting stuff, or there will be mainly macros, I havent been able to figure this out. Anyway, there should be plenty to choose from among the bottles.

Great bottle selection and usually something interesting on tap too. Fairly convenient location, not far from other beer places and in easy walkable distance from the city center. Not my first choice for beer, but certainly worth a visit.

My best bar experience in Oslo. Great atmosphere with the market being a hit with my wife,friendly & very knowledgeable staff who was happy to talk beer, decent enough prices for Norway(half-pours at half-price if you want a taster) and a fairly nice bottle& tap list though when I went it was dominated by Danish beers & had no Norwegian ones on tap.

Visited for the first time on a Tuesday afternoon in February 2013. It took me about 20 minutes to walk to this place from Radisson Plaza Hotel at the Train station. Nice selection of both Norwegian and foreign beer. The ambiance was ok, slightly loud during the afternoon rush. This is a small place. Friendly and knowledgeable staff, would love to visit again in the future. Well worth a visit.

Good tap and bottle selection. Friendly service. Did not try their food, but I appreciate their philosophy of mixing and matching beer and food. I also love the 1,5 dl sampler option from the entire tap range.

Nice and cosy place to stop for a beer and grab some snack if you enjoy the food hall type environment. I do occasionally and when the beer selection is good, service is good, the salmon with chevre where superb I’m having a great time. I would not expect the same kind of service as I prefer at a pub or a restaurant, and the service here is way better than I was hoping for.

I wouldn’t call Øltorget a restaurant, it’s more of a beer bar with simple but excellent pub grub made in the small kitchen corner (I enjoyed a tasty moose burger with melted blue cheese). On previous attempts I’ve found the place too cramped to visit, but on an early Saturday in March (2013-03-23) I found it pleasantly vacant and sat down. The beer selection on draft is very decent, with 14 taps ranging from standard Pilsner Urquell to English craft beer Moor Nor’Hop. On bottle, the selection is more than decent with more than 200 types, and new ones added every week. I was also pleasantly surprised by the interest and knowledge in beer, shown by the two bartenders. All in all, Øltorget is a nice addition to the Oslo beer scene, but you should come early after opening time or on Sundays.
