Before you enter the pub, you are informed in many different languages that this is the northernmost microbrewery in the world. (Many things are “the northernmost” in this part of arctic Norway). On an early Saturday afternoon in the beginning of September 07 this local pub in the northernmost (again!) city of Norway is almost packed with people eating pizza or cakes. Unfortunately for me the microbrewery’s own beer – Ole Anton Pils (named after a local character) – is still in its brewing process, only to be ready in about a week or so. There is not so much else to choose from; some products from the Mack Brewery and Carlsberg on tap, Kilkenny and Guinness on can and, the one I chose, a 750ml bottle of Jacobsen Dark Ale to the price of 109 Norwegian kroner (more than £8). For tourists sailing northbound by Hurtigruten the pub is very easily located just a few minutes from where the ship comes alongside the quay. It may be of interest to know that Vinmonopolet in Honningsvåg is even nearer to the Hurtigruten quay than the pub. Except for being located in the extreme north, there is really nothing special with Nordkapp Mikrobryggeri. The service was polite and the wood panelled, medium sized room makes it cosy on an average level. I was informed that they might be brewing a second beer of their own this autumn (visited 01.09.2007).

Sitting on the island on Magerøya at tthe northernmost outpost of Europe it’s the northernmost brewry in the world, which makes it interesting. The one beer in itself, a pale anonymous lager, does not spark a lot of interest. The good news is that the service makes you forget that Honningsvåg is a major tourist trap, and the food is pretty good as well. Come here for the amazing scenery, not for the beer.
