Schouskjelleren Mikrobryggeri brewpub opened its doors to the general public on October 1st 2010, becoming the second brewpub in Oslo, after Oslo Mikrobryggeri (founded in 1989).
The brewpub is located in the cellar of the old Schous Bryggeri on Grünerløkka and is owned by the people behind Olympen, another great beer place in Oslo. Brewmaster, John Hudson, has created half a dozen beers to be brewed and served at the brewpub, most notably the OSB (Oslo Special Bitter), the Thunder Bear Stout and the spicy Garden of Eden.
The atmosphere in the brewpub has more in common with German and Czech beer halls than with Norwegian pubs, with its vaulted brick ceiling, massive fireplace at the end of the hall and its rustic wooden furniture. The place radiates age. But the brewery is brand new and state of the art, with four 500 liter storage tanks supplying the bar.
The brewpub still has some kinks to iron out, I would like to see some pub grab on offer and a draught menu on the wall to see what’s on tap at any moment. But these are minor issues, this brewpub is a much welcome addition to the beer scene in Oslo with its great atmosphere and good beer selection - both locally brewed and on guest tap.
June 6 2011 edit: As of April 2011, the brewpub sports a total of 16 taps, 8 of which are for guest craft beers! In the summer months they have an additional four taps at the outdoor bar, making Schouskjelleren the best place to go in Oslo for a craft beer on draught.

Wow, that’s a pub I’d like to have in my neighbourhood. First it is important to note this is an underground pub (A BEAUTIFUL underground cave) without a windows, so going there on a nice sunny day is not recommended, this is a pub to visit at night. We first tried to visit the pub on a superb sunny after-noon but we turned around and decided to come back later when it wasn’t so sunny (never really any night in mid-july Oslo) and it was a memorable pub experience. The inside of the pub is something to see, a dark cavernous pub with an impressive brick structure, this underground structure was certainly used for something else in the past. Equally impressive are the oversized big wood and leather furniture. This is one hell of a beautiful pub. Medium size, sits aabout 75 people. No food, this is a pub for adults to drink beer. 6 house beers + 6 guess beers on tap when I was there. Schouskjelleren’s hoppy beers can rival with the best Ameican hoppy beers. They also a two pages of bottle list (Norway, USA, Denmark, Belgium mostly). My waiter was also the brewer (an Englishman) and was one of the most passionate waiter I ever had. A fantastic place with a unique atmosphere, fantastic hoppy beers, and great non-hoppy beers. Loved this place.

If you want something to eat, stop at themain restaurant or sit outside. If you’re interested in beer, pass through the courtyard under the arch, and go to the cellar. No food here, but they have a great selection of their own beers, of course, plus a handful from around Norway and Denmark. Service is outstanding, and the locals are friendly. Worth going out of your way to try.

Cozy vaulted cellar, open fire, a bit noisy when full. Their own brews are well worth trying, after some stumbling at first they are now of good quality and there is always something new. And the import list, both on tap and in bottles is outstanding. A must stop in Oslo. Outside taps planned for the summer season.

Nice cellar with interior of wood and brickwork. Nice fireplace in the back. Friendly staff. Very good selection of their own brewed beers and selected US & European beers on tap and in bottle. Prices are very high but that’s because it’s Oslo. Value is quite good.

Very nice selection on tap. They have about 4 own brews and alot of other exiting brews. When i was there, there came some new beers on the board when i turned my head the other way. Very cool. Also some nice bottles. Not the best on selection in Oslo, but probably the best in Oslo when we speak tap only. Maybe even best in norway since there is no industrial beers available here
