Popular place in the heart of Trondheim. Often loud and crowded on weekends. Not a traditional "beerlover hangout-ambiance" as you might be lead to believe from the name. Some beers are average, others are just poorly made. Service is shit and the bartenders rude. The bartender actually attacked a customer while we were there. Not recommended!!
Had bag searched on entry and my innocuous bottle of juice was confiscated. Then went to bar and ordered sample tray, to be told they wonít do them in the evening... Prices extortionate, was just about willing to pay once to score all six beers, but wasnít going to pay as much to only try one... Very poor.
Has a definite student vibe, but still a niceish place done out in brick and pale wood. Serve only their own beers, but a good number of those, and the service is attentive and well-informed. The food is good, too.
Visited on Thursday 3 pm. We were the only customers. So the service was fast and friendly (and in Swedish). I had the sampler of 6 of their brews. From fair to excellent. Stout and Pale Ale were sold out. Could visit again when in Trondheim next time.
One of the oldest micro breweries in Norway. The older brother of Oslo mikrobryggeri. I didnít expect much from this place based on what I had heard from other beergeeks and read, but I was pleasantly suprised when I visited them. They had just remodelled and fixed the place up so now it was bigger and brighter than before. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Unfortunately they only sell their own beer as well as sodas and some drinks, so the selection gets a mark down, but itís definitely worth a visit.
Good outdoor seating, a bit sportbar look inside. Helpful barttenders, glass are served in 10, 25 or 50 cl.
Usually 8 of their own brews on tap- 6 regular & 2 varying ones. 2 regulars were sold out when I visited.
Food meny looks ok, but I did not eat.
Probably the most interesting beer place in Trondheim
A great place. Because of limited storage space, the ales arenít matured as long as they should. They produce and serve great ales, that only misses the couple of weeks of maturing. great ambiance, where itís possible to talk without shouting. Good service and happy employees. My favorite bar/brewpub in Trondheim!
The pub that got me started on something other than lagers. Immediately fell in love with their IPA, even though Iím not sure it would impress me now. I guess Iíll have to check the next time I visit my old campus. Good introduction-beers, with sample trays of their own different brews.
Trondheimís only brewpub. Their beers are quite good, especially if compared to the boring macro lagers you get everywhere else, but a bit expensive. Iíve generally experienced good service and bartenders who can describe the various beers. They have a nice selection of beers, and they always have a seasonal beer. Ambiance can be hit or miss, on weekends it can be crowded with shouting drunk people who "just want a beer".
Quite typical average American style brewpub with rather typical American brewpub beers. Nothing spectacular but nothing really boring either. A nice range of non-offending beers between 4,5 and 5,5 % ABV. On the positive side is the fact that they have 8 beers on tap, they are not particular expensive, a spacious building so you will always get a seat and the staff is friendly if you start talking with them. The negative thing is that thee beers is not exiting enough to stay any longer after sampling them, better off to Den Gode Nabo. They where not willing to sell me the sample tray, but had no objections to sell me 8 different 10 ml glasses and place them on a sample sheet I found at another table, isnít that a bit weird? Anyway, itís a must visit at least one time place.
