If you love wine this place has the best wine selection in town.
The beer on tap is for the most part bland and not very interesting and very overpriced. They do however have BeerHere on bottles and on a rare occasion on tap.
There are one or two on the staff that knows a little about the beer they serve the rest will just give you the rehersed line and can’t answer even the simplest questions about the beer like if It’s an ale or larger. The bar area is unpersonal and cold. The only thing worth spending your time there for is seeing if you can spot the Hitler labled beer hidden among the shelves.
In all just go there for the BeerHere beers.

Ok place but too much light and far from a real cozy place. Bit too "stiff". When the brewer has time though he talks a lot about the beers. Quite a few different styles on tap. Good for big groups/meetings down stairs.

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.

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.

Only slightly above average for a brewpub and this is mainly because of the excellent food.
Beer is a bit dullish ranging from pretty decent to quite poor.
Prices are quite steep and ambiance is nothing special really.

A bit to sterile if you ask me, like being in an operating room. The beers are with one or two exceptions nothing special, not yet anyway. The service is good though, and the food is allright. - I agree that the place has some potential.....

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.

A pretty average brewpub. Some of the beers were infected. Nice surrounding though. The place has a big potential of being a great, great place.

Nice enough place.
Adequate selection of their beers (allthough I wasn’t too happy with them)
Good food (pretty pricey though).
Very friendly and knowledgeable staff.

Nice surroundings, but too new to have real athmosphere. Wooden tables and tiled floor, and a Harley Davison in in front of the bar. We were served by the brewer, which was very knowledgeable and friendly, and even provided us with a free tour. The selection of homemade beer is quite small, of very high quality, but unfortunately pretty mainstream. The food is excellent and both food and beer is reasonable priced (at least compared to Copenhagen brewpubs).
