When you enter, the restaurant is to the left and the Missing Bell Brewpub to the right. Hardly any tables available during lunch time this Saturday. I had time for one beer and chose "Harvest Beer". A rather dull beer as most Søgaards beers I’ve tried through the years. Nice place and 14 beers on tap makes this brewpub worth a visit. (Visited December 20th 2014)

Couldn’t fault the service and hospitality here. As soon as Claus, the owner, spotted us, he was over like a shot. Samples of all the beers on tap appeared, followed by an impromptu tour of the very high-tech brewery and samples of trial and experimental brews, plus tastes of the German beers on which some of the Sogaards brews are based (unfortunately, I forgot to note the name of the brewery) and free charcuterie from the in-house butchers shop (Claus used to be a butcher). As others have said, its not the cosiest place and the beers are generally clean, solid but unexceptional. We were considering having a meal but the free nibbles obviated the necessity. Welll worth a stop.
Combined restaurant and brewbub.Lots of seating both outside and inside.
House beers are ok, but nothing special. Also have some Beer Here ( wich are brewed here ) on tap. Staff dnt seems to know alot about the beer they serve. Havent tryied the food, but been told its pretty good. Very expensive
Large and wannabe extravagant Brewpub. Very Expensive even for Danish standards. Arrogant service. The male waitor barely nodded and Said nothing when We ordered our food nor when hé took our plates. The chicken was overcooked and the bread far from crispy. My 2ipa was Poured In a Weissbeer glass and the bottle was left In the bar. Thankfully No slice of lime which most of the other beers had. With beers that are only average In a City with No competition This place Can live on. Lucky for Them! Def. Not a reason to travel All the way to Aalborg.
Not the cozies place there is, but it is a good retreat if you want some decent food and micro-brew after spending the day beer-hunting in other places in Aalborg. As usual, not all of the staff is too knowledgeable about neither beer nor the food, but some of them knows their job. The even got a butchers shop on the premises. And the beers from Søgaard is best from tap.

A big place which serves good food along with mostly their own beers. They also have Beer Here and some of the other brands, that have their beers brewed here. The service is really mixed. I have been here several times and sometimes you talk to a real expert who is very enthusiastic about his beers, but most of the time it’s a standard barmaid, who knows absolutely nothing about beer or how to pour it. A bit expensive.
Due to a ferry delay I suddenly found myself with an hour to spend in Aalborg a late Friday night, and headed straight for this brewpub. Nice looking place with "mature" guests. Friendly but not very fast waiter, supplied me with small samplers of all 6 beers in stock + a full size of one of their beers - but I’m not 100% convinced that they were all sorted out correctly! The beers seem designed to satisfy the average Danish lager drinker - only 1 ale (an IPA) out of 6 available beers. All of them were drinkable, though. I did not eat on my visit, but they seem to have a decent menu. As I was just passing through from Germany I had no Danish kroner, and asked if I may pay with euros (no need to bother with a credit card for such a small sum of money). Euros were accepted, but the exchange rate was outrageous.
Large place with some interesting beers. You may sit indoor or outdoor in summertime. Food is good. Easy to find. Both beer and food is too expensive in my opinion. A good deal of the beers can be bought in supermarkets. Do that instead. Staff is friendly but you might risk some waiting time. On the verge of being a tourist trap.
