A nice beer place with a good selection of craft beers. The staff is often very busy and not extremely friendly. The knowledge level varies widely from waiter to waiter, and the really sad thing is that some of the less knowledgeable staff members will pretend that they know beer better than you.

Good selection on both tap and bottle, they also got some kegs made for them especially. Good, traditionel food, nothing fancy, but well-made. A beautiful main room, not very nice toilets.

I liked the patio on the top of the building. To bad it closed early and that everybody was smoking. But they had some very interesting danish brewers on a tap that was the most unique I have ever seen. The main room was a bit out of place in this area of town with high ceiling and chandeliers. But they had a nice selection and the service was nice.

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.

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.

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).
