Classic beer haunt in Oslo, well refurbished in 2006 (largely involving a change of clientele, regrettably some will say, but still it’s quite a mixed bunch). Oslo’s best beer selection, most likely. Not that many on tap though. Often among the first bars to make Nøgne Ø and Haandbryggeriet’s new arrivals available. Decent whisky collection, too. Good food. Usually no problem getting a place at the long bar (tables often need to be reserved though). Staff is generally not very cheerful, but appear to be knowledgeable.

Visited in July 2010. A very nice old-fashioned beer hall within walking distance from the city center. Good selection of beers, both Norwegian and International. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The food was good.

Lompa, as the locals call it, is as much an eating as a drinking place. They have one of the best beer selections in Oslo, including numerous domestic micros. It can at times be difficult to get a table in the late afternoon/early evening as they all seem to be reserved by dinnerguests, but usually there’s a seat at the bar. At times service can be slow. Outdoor seating upstairs in the summer.

ClubGonzo  (33) Bergen, Norway | July 21, 2010| Updated October 24, 2011
Classic beer hall style restaurant in Grønland, Oslo. Has a simple, but tasty menu and a fairly ok staff dishing out beer and food in a friendly, yet efficient matter. Boasts some macros and several Norwegian micros on tap, including Haandbryggeriet and Nøgne Ø. Bottle collection includes several American beers, some European micros and of course a good stock of Norwegian microbrews. An OK place to have a meal and a few good beers in Oslo.

Great place in Oslo for good beers and a good meal. They always seem to have something new and exciting behind the counter and/or on the taps. Good atmosphere. This is not just for the beer buffs - you could probably bring your relatives for a good meal in this renovated and up scale beer hall.

My favorite beer place i Oslo. Pretty centrally located at Grønland, close to the city centre. Good selection of beers, one of the best in town. Very nice atmosphere and good service. The bartenders are friendly and usually knowledgeable. They also have a nice outside terrace in the summer, but unfortunately it’s only open until 8pm.

Rune  (404) Tromsø, Norway | June 21, 2010
Large place where the ceiling is high with crystal lightning, massive Oslo paintings on the walls and an overall mahogany coloured decor. During the last few years they have had a steady expanding beer menu on bottle and tap making Olympen, together with Håndverkerstuene, the best place for beer drinking in Oslo. The food is delicious, too. On my last visit I had some tasty rye bread with liver paste, bacon and beetroot which paired very well to my bottle of Imperial Dunkel Wit from Nøgne Ø. At the time being their selection of Danish, German and American beers are particular exciting. Friendly, if not always knowledgeable, service (last visited with Frau Eva on Friday 18th June 2010).

Good place with a great selection and good food. Beer knowledge vary, in particular because they appear to have separate bar staff and waiters - so you might want to be seated at the bar. They also appear to have a ’secret selection’ of rare beers - at least beers that I’ve asked for and was told they didn’t have suddenly materialized later in the evening when I had ordered other rare stuff. It is often full and somewhat noisy, and the mix between old style boozer, Victorian beer palace and trendy restaurant is both telling for the place’s history and at best charming. The food is upscale, but not always agreeable to my stomach. Good selection of Norwegian micros.

After reopening in November 2007, the "new" Olympen soon became a focal point for beer interest in Oslo. They were quick to realize that a Norwegian beer scene was developing, and they soon had a good variety of Norwegian craft beers on bottle. By the end of 2008, they also had craft beer on tap - from Nøgne Ø and HaandBryggeriet. The kitchen at Olympen provides great value for money, you get big portions of good, rustic food - whether fish or meat. What may subtract a little for the beer enthusiast, is that this feels more like a restaurant than a bar/pub. It can be very noisy because of the large, open hall, and the service may be a bit slow on crowded nights. And with such a large staff, not everyone is knowledgable about beer. But ask for Sanel, and you’ll get all the help you need in deciding from the big beer menu. Updated: 2012-07-02
