A nice and spacious pub with a popular outdoor seating area. Only Mack on tap but a good bottled selection. But, why not have a beer menu? I had to lean over the bar counter in order to see if the fridge had a hidden beer gem. I didn’t find any rare one, but picked one from De Molen. (Visited July 10th 2014)

Skarven Kro is the café / pub on the ground floor below Arctandria Seafood Restaurant at Vertshuset Skarven. It’s light and very open, with windows facing the harbor as well as the square from which you enter. The place felt like a mixture of a nice local café and a tourist place and you meet both kinds here. The bottled beer selection really impressed me, I counted more than 70(!) types from all over the world - De Molen, Emelisse, Founders, Mikkeller, Amager, Ægir, Nøgne Ø and a dozen types from HaandBryggeriet. On tap they only had four Mack beers, none that really interested me, so I stuck to the bottled beers on my two visits. The food was a bit up and down, the fish caserolle was really tasty while the bacalao on day two was among the least tastefull I’ve ever had (and I’ve tasted many on various trips to Portugal). Finally, the two young male bartenders I talked to showed a total lack of interest in their good selection of bottled beers, which was very disappointing and will probably cause many problems for future visitors asking about beer. Such a shame. Visits: 28 February and March 1, 2013.

Nice location with a good atmosphere. Like the fire place, especially now in the dark cold winter. Ok food for a pub, not too much on the plate but enough. A pretty good beer selection with interesting Norweigian micros on bottle (Haandbryggeriet, Aegir, Lervig, Nøgne Ø). Poor tap selection, only Mack. Some nicer international beers on bottle e g Emelisse and Cantillon. A nice place that surely surprised me in a good way. The best place in Tromsø imo. I’ll be back.

We visited here Friday 18th January. It was a busy, buzzing place and a welcome place to sit sup and relax from the incessant drizzle. As you enter there appears to be a steakhouse to the right a restaurant mainly fish? upstairs and a pub to your right. We opted for the bar but booked the restaurant for the Monday evening. The barman I spoke with was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful with choices, though I opted for a Mack Bayer as I hadn’t had that rather than go for an Emelisse or Nogne beer. We had to stand for twenty minutes as the place was just so busy but this wasn’t a problem. One very minor gripe was that they never had a bottled list and yet they had a very healthy selection (strange?) I think that we will definately go here again but whether I take a splurge on a Nogne 100 at nearly £19+ a bottle remains to be seen.

Well, Norway outside Oslo is not the biggest beer destination. Prices are astronomical, both for beer and food. This place had 4 Mack beers on tap and 20 different bottles, nothing extraordinary. The food was very good. I had a fishplate, wich were good. Go for the food and ambiance, not the beers.

12.03.2012. I have now had the famous North-norwegian dish "Mølje" and it was very good. Its a little smilar to what I am used to but we dont normaly eat the cod-liver. Ok; Nice food - what about beer? Good selection of beers, and I am glad I got the Mack Skarven ESB. They actually have a very good selection of beers from Nøgne Ø and Haandbryggeriet. This is a very nice place!

Probably the best place for beer in Tromsø. Skarven offers a decent selection of bottled beer, and some Mack varieties on tap, along with a seasonal beer when applicable. The food in this place is good.

Skarven Bar is my favourite Tromsø bar. Unfortunately their selection seemed to have decreased from last summer. In addition to a handful of bottled belgians they offered 7-8 various bottled micros, including two different christmas beers and a Saison from Nøgene Ø, and two brews from Haandryggeriet . Like most Tromsø bars they serve a couple of mediocre Macks on tap. According to the owner, the staff have taken beerclasses, however, this was not evident to me.

For many years Skarven has been the most popular place by locals and visitors alike for drinking and eating in Tromsø. The guesthouse is divided into two restaurants, a few bars and a rather large pub added by a patio that gets very busy during the hours of sunshine, which may include a flaming midnight sun. The pub, Skarven Kro, also serves light meals. Skarven has recently improved their beer menu. In addition to at least four on tap from the local Mack brewery and the usual fizzy stuff in bottles, they now offer quite a large amount of bottle beers from Norwegian micros like Nøgne Ø, Ægir, Haandbryggeriet and Atna. There are a few Belgian ales as well, from Steenbrugge and Chimay, among others (see under Nyheter at their website). I visited the pub yesterday and had a Steenbrugge Blond and Wild Thing from Haandbryggeriet. The tartness of Wild Thing was just perfect as a partner to a delicious casserole of Stockfish (Tørrfiskgryte). Polite and knowledge service – they have got special training in the world of real ale. The beer and food are reasonable priced compared to Norwegian standards (visited, 22.04.2010).
