What a great pub! And what a place. Good beer, lovely rare pub and a magic nature. What more can you ask for. Nothing wrong then……hmmm. The nature view is often restricted by a hughe cruise ship. And you must be careful when you walk around this really small place. It is crowded with tourists. You have to go here if you are in this area. But it is not a place you just go to for a beer and take the bus back home. It is far away from the known world.
Very nice brewpub in newly build old Norwegian stavkirke style. Quite busy as cruise ships dock just meters away. Very nice service, willing to expand on there beers. Got tour in facility. (There is bigger brewery just outside of town) and sampled some of their beers. Nice.
A beautiful brewpub in a beautiful place of Norway. But the selction was limited and the beers I would have liked to try was sold out/empty. The food was good, but not much more. Playing reggae music over the loudspeakers and none of the waiters speaking norwegian really bugs me when they are trying to be a authentic "viking place".
Really nice place in a tiny town in the end of a narrow Norwegian fjord. You come here to try out the Ægir beers, they had a couple I’ve never seen before on tap. They also sell bottles of beer under 4,7% next door if you want to bring your own, but I’m not sure if you could get anything wouldn’t find in a well stocked shop. Highly recommended to visit this place if you’re traveling through the area. Great service.
Lovely brewpub in the heart of Flåm. From the outside, it looks very viking-esque. From the inside, it’s quite dark with few windows (the only complaint I have - why not take advantage of the amazing scenery surrounding the place?), with a viking theme. Wooden tables and armchairs, with a fire in the middle. You can sample all ther draught beers (6 of them) for 162NOK and purchase bottles beers for onsite consumption (very pricy stuff). Service is very friendly and hospitable. We went in the off-season, when it was quite quiet, whereas we were told the place can get insanely busy during the summer. Worth a visit when visiting this amazing place.
Simply wonderful. Unique brewpub, viking style. Serves pretty much the full range of Ægir beers, but only 4-5 of them on tap. Restaurant upstairs has a rich menu - both creative and traditional, and well matched with the different Ægir beers. Can be crowded when the cruise ships are in town, and service can be at bit ’off’ sometimes. Tasting trays with their regular tap beers is popular. My suggestion that they also should offer tasting trays for the more ’adventurous’ did not go do down well w the bartender, and when I followed up w ordering a Lindisfarne it certainly did not break any ice. Still - had a smashing time there for my 50th Birthday, and you can tell that it’s quality when you get served your Lynchburg nitecap in just the right kind of snifter glass.
A schooling example for any Micro about to start: Get located in a place with huge amounts of tourists, build a beatiful brewpub; and the profit of the business is home safe.
Excellent beer in a fabulous location. Do visit if you pass by Flåm! A place not to be missed.
What a lovely building! They have everything from the brewery. I drank a perfect India Pale ale before I had to catch the train back to Myrdahl. That said, guests are cruise tourists, but Ægir is still recommended strongly
Yes, this is a tourist’s brewpub. But if you’re in Flåm you’re almost certainly a tourist yourself, so you might as well try to enjoy your trip instead of complaining about how touristy everything is.
The building is an attraction in it’s own right, built to look like a stavkirke on the outside with a spacious interior centered on a big fireplace. It’s pretty chill if there is no cruise ship in port, but a zoo if there is. A great place to wind down your evening.
Bartender was friendly and helpful, but a little hard to get ahold of, even if the place is empty.
They serve almost all the Ægir beers, mostly in bottles. The tap selection is limited mostly to their 4.7% beers, which seems a little backwards to me since you can buy those at the nearby grocery store or the attached bottleshop for half the price. You can get a flight of these mainline beers. Most of the beers are American styles so maybe not that exciting for American tourists, but it’s impressive how much flavor they can cram into 4.7%. There are some interesting things on the the bottle menu (very expensive) and they make their own Aquavit too. Fun for the whole family!
You should also visit the production facility down the road, its very spiffy.
Visited together with yngwie and we started by getting a tour of the production brewery by Vegard. Which probably is the most beautiful craft brewery I have seen so far. Later we went down to the brewpub and shared a couple of beers round the fireplace. This place is worth visiting just to see that brewpub and it’s just a bonus that the beers are great too.
