“Visited for dinner with my son, I was driving so I had to settle for a light ale which was decent enough for its strength, and a taste of one of my son's beers. A reasonable beer selection printed in the menu / drinks list. We sat out on the patio in warm weather, quite a lot of mosquitos around. Very friendly waitress. Very good food too, but not very cheap.“

“Well, I have to admit that this placed doesn't offer a great beer selection. But I think this restaurant has the best beer garden in Östersund. Spacious, long tables and benches, live music and 4 beers on tap. Some bottles too, selection varies but look for Firestone Walker or Swedish craft beer. My last beer this evenig was a pint of Gotlands Sleepy Bulldog Summer Pale Ale. (Visited July 29th 2017)“

“Holy crap! This is not a craft beer destination. Some macro beers on tap and hardly any interesting bottles. Only for those staying at this hotel. (Visited July 29th 2017)“

“A modern restaurant emphasizing on cajun inspired food. The kitchen is at the right side when you enter, beside the bar. You can watch the chefs in action. The patio outside was crowded this evening since you could see and listen to the band playing at the main square nearby. Interior inside is wood and steel. I sat by a cable drum table and enjoyed a bottle from Beer Studio, Sputnik Krisis 10,5 %. A beer for real men! 8 taps, not that interesting but one from Ballast Point and some decent from Brooklyn. The bottle selection is way better. Classic rock music and nice service. (Visited July 29th 2017)“

“The Bishops Arms is always "a safe card" to visit in Swedish cities. You know what you get. This bar have 25 taps and about 100 bottles. No beer menu for the bottles, but you can have a look in the fridge. Beers on tap sometimes just have a name, and therefore not easy to know which brewery and what ABV. Should be easy to fix! The bar is spacious with plenty of seatings and has a long bar counter. Two draught beers for me: Oskar Blues Fugli and Jemtehed & Brande The Falconers. Polite service. (Visited July 29th 2017)“

“A fine bar but beer selection is rather poor. Nothing interesting on tap but some bottles from Revsund and Jemtehed & Brande in the fridge. There is a beer menu but ask for new bottles. Lots of various seating on two floors and a patio in front. Nice interior and carpet on the floor (?) (Visited July 29th 2017)“

“My number one in Östersund. A spacious pub with dark brown interior, nice covered patio in front and a wild boar fur and anaconda skin in the ceiling when you enter. Strange! Free Wifi. A long bar counter with bar stools and all the bottles visible in shelves behind the bar. Actually many interesting local craft breweries present. Many ordinary macro beers on tap, but always 4 from the local brewery Jämtlands and 3 rotating taps. At my first visit I enjoyed Revsund Wicked Mountain and Revsund Yet Another Flamango from tap and a Cook's Burger. Very service minded and attentive barman. Commercial rock and pop music played. I visited once more later in the evening and had two bottles: Klövsjö Black Nirvana and Klövsjö Yellow Nirvana. (Visited July 29th 2017)“

Jazzköket (Restaurant)
PRÄSTGATAN 44
“Ecological, Jazz, modern, hipsters, gastro food and craft beer, these words belong in a tag cloud describing this restaurant. It was crowded but I found a small table in the "Courtyard", a part of Jazzköket. Only Norrlands Guld on tap but more than 30 bottles from local microbreweries in the area and further north. I had a bottle from Westerbottens Bryggeri. A DJ was playing jazz and alternative funky music. Actually not bad. There is also a patio in a courtyard facing Jane Doe's patio. (Visited July 29th 2017)“

“A rough rock bar, some tough dudes in skin and leather. Dark interior, skulls, dripping candles, corrugated iron sheets and oil barrels. Scary? Not at all it's just an image and music played was American pop and "soft" rock. Draught options are some American craft beers and Swedish macro. Two beers from Modern Times at my visit. So if you are looking for Swedish craft beers, skip this place. Service a bit slow. Centrally located and a nice patio in front. (Visited July 29th 2017)“

“I drove as crazy from Systembolaget Lillänge just to visit the second Systembolag in Östersund. This is in the city centre so you have to look for parking and walk a bit. I got inside 10 minutes before closing time. This outlet was a disappointment. I only found 4 more new beers, all macro lagers. Shelves were almost empty. The reason? Well, "Storsjöyran" a local amusement and music festival was going on this weekend. The locals had almost emptied this Systembolag, even for craft beer! (Visited July 29th 2017)“

“Located in a retail area outside Östersund. Free parking. Easier to buy loads of beer here than at the Systembolaget downtown. I ended up with 19 new beers. Some of the same local breweries I found in Krokom, but also beers from Härjebrygg and Revsunds. (Visited July 29th 2017)“

“Expensive... revisited again since they gave me 500 SEK of tokens to spend on drinks and food. Food was good (small potions, and skip the starters) but service was slow (had to wait for 1 hour for the mailcourse and no one told us...). If you’re planning to go there become a member... check their webpage and you will have some kind of benfit. Beer selection is OK (approx 10 interesting taps and 50 interesting bottles). Toliets are clean. Not that there is smaller bar to the right after the entrence.“

“A more airy bishops arms look a like pub. Friendly and fast service, even do it was crowded. Local beers, probably only Jämtland. A wee patio for the summer overlooking one of the must ugliest squares I ever have seen (except Masthuggstorget in Göteborg)“

“A wee pub in the entrance area connected to the hotel resturante. The pub boss refused to keep the local leftovers after the festival - pretty odd.“

“Lively pub/bar with a great focus on whiskey. Probably loads of regular guests so go there during of peak periods. Not that interessting beer selection but if you are doing the full Östersund pubcrawl u shouldn’t miss them out. “

“Coolest place to be in Östersund. Great eco friendly local produced food, beer, and mead (out of stock at the moment :( ). Nice interessted, friendly and skilled staff. Jazz nights... will revisit and bring wife for the full monthy. I was lucky to find a seat or rather the sofa. My recommendation is that u book in advance. And yeah the have loads of beer that are very hard to get...“

“Located inside one of the city center shopping mall. You have to walk for approx 10 min to reach the place. Longest que of VIPs at 10.00 just before opening in the mornkng that I have ever seen (me first ;) ). Only went here to purschase "Vår Julbrygd, from Bakgården I Revsund. Had a few Jämtlands and one Jemtehede and Brande at my visit. Nice interors. Staff didn’t know their locals, unfortunatly.“

“Out od town - Supermarket variant, easy to reach with car. Never seen such a big beer departement, with focus on Macro beers*. Anyhow locals Jemtehede... and Jämtlands are available. Friendly staff, open to 15.00 on Saturdays;).* Hade special self for special releases, so perhaps visiting in January didn’t make the place justice, have check yourself.“

“Systembolaget main facts:
Chain of government controlled monopoly stores to sell alcohol with an ABV higher than 3.5% to take home.
20 years age limit to shop, or even to accompany someone else making a purchase. If ID can not be produced, you might get refused service.
All alcoholic beverages above 3.5% ABV you wish to buy in Sweden and not from a "Systembolaget" store, you will have to buy at a pub or restaurant, for consumption at the place where you purchased it. Minimum age requirement 18 years, the pub itself might opt for another age limit though, making it so you need to be older still.
Alcohol at 3.5% ABV or lower may be for sale to take home at regular stores that have a permit for it, age limit 18 years, ID may be required.

This store:
Has been a while since I visited. As is norm in Sweden you go to a "Systembolaget" store when you want to purchase any alcohol stronger than 3.5% ABV to take with you. Centrally located in ÖStersund. Had a decent selection and decent service last time I visited.“

“Couple of taps with only the most common brews. 10 different Jämtlands bottles available. Food could be good as it is more of a restaurant than a pub. Close to the Bishops Arms.“

“18 taps, even some interesting ones. It was quiz night I visited so the place was crowded. Danish beers like Mikkeller/To Øl/Beer Here available. And of course Jämtlands. Nice place. Best in Östersund.“

“English-pub-look. Cosy ambiance. Local food, decent/slightly high prices. Not very exciting stuff happening on tap, but the bottle-selection is improving with some North Coast, Brooklyn and Jâmtlands available at very decent prices. I always eat here when in Östersund. Make sure to book in advance.“

“Nice pub centrally located on Stortorget, with a very nice outdoor area overlooking the square. There is a small and cosy bar just left of the entrance and a larger one straight ahead. Friendly and efficient service. Most of the draught beers were not very interesting, but there were a couple of Swedish micros, for example St Eriks. Decent selection of bottles, but far from the bigger BA pubs in Stockholm or Gothenburg. My main reason to visit was to see if they had any beers from the new local brewery in Klövsjö. Which they had (and they were a success).“

“Onlhy patio open, no "roofing" by the Stortorget. Poor selection of beers, luckily they had 2 Klövsjö bottles during this weekend t saved my day. Guy behind the bar couldn’t make a difference between a pale ale and a lager, not Guiness or Kilkenny...kinda says it all of the beer knowledge of people who work there.“

“VERY expensive. A St. Eriks Pale Ale is 75 SEK, on Systembolaget it’s 16 SEK. Not very friendly personell, and they don’t know a lot about beer. 40 tap’s, but 35 of them are LAGER or main streem Ale’s. No IPAs, Stouts ore Porters on tap. Food is not very good - overcooked. I hope they improve.“

“Nice BA in the town center of Östersund. The menu is small but imaginative (they do include local products) which matches the standard BA selection very nicely. Friendly staff. Watch out for this place in the summer when they open their outdoors bar: they are happy to serve you every whisky they have, but only a very, very reduced beer selection. They did not even have any ale options on bottle during the summer, only the fizzy lager stuff.“
