Interesting place. They had just three of their own beers on draft, but a plethora from other Norwegian and Danish brewers, as well as a handful from Germany and the US. Staff was very helpful, and generous with free samples. The brewer was busy toiling away on the small system right next to the bar. Didn’t try the food. Worth a look.
British Brown Bar look and feel, large space, empty at 4pm filling up entirely by 6 for after-work drinks. Extensive menu including a number of Haand bottles, most were fresh and in good shape Only 1 or 2 house beers on tap. A lot of Cantillon and 3 Fonteinen if you’re into that. Very pretty lambic / trappist cellar viewable in the back.
This place has a chain brewpub feel to it, but a lot of old wood and architecture to balance things out. Some outdoor seating in the front. Brewing equipment on display. Hard to get a full taplist; printed menu has the core beers only, rest need to be mostly read off the tap handles; there is a chalkboard but it too is incomplete. No flights, but small pours available (10cl and 25cl for most beers). OK service; not bad or anything, but certainly less on the ball than I experienced in the country for the most part. Long periods of time went by when there was literally nobody behind the bar. I thought the beer quality was pretty solid overall, and there was a good variety; a lot must have happened in the week since the previous review. Did not try the food, but this is a place I would happily recommend.
Classic brewpub feel to this place. 4 house beers on tap when I went plus a bunch of guests (mostly uninteresting except for a Nøgne Ø and an Ægir. Prices are quite good for the country - you can order small pours of any beer for about 29NOK. House beers weren’t very good though to be honest. Service is very friendly and hospitable. Not worth stopping for beer quality.
Another option for good beer drinking in the Norwegian capital. It has got a very central location next to large brick building of Oslo’s Town Hall. Rather inviting, ordinary décor that seems to attract different kind of people depending on the time of the day. The well-composed beer menu is divided into three parts: the draft part, one part of permanent bottle beers and the most interesting part of bottle beers that changes every month, or so. Good range with a fine mix of macros and micros, foreign and Norwegian. During a weekend in Oslo I visited Amundsen twice; Friday late afternoon and Sunday mid-afternoon. I was very pleased with the beers and the service. The Swedish barman was service minded and knowledgeable when it came to the beer menu. Ordinary, but tasty food – I had a burger with bacon and salad. A pale ale was the only one available from their own brewery, and the brew had a fine drinkability. Will definitely return, and with its central location and convenient opening hours, I may pop in every time I have a chance to go to Oslo (visited, 1st and 3rd April 2011).
A spacious brewpub centrally located in Oslo. Well attended and hardly any tables available this early Friday evening. Maybe I had expected several of their own beers on tap? Efficient service and good beers, without being outstanding though. (Visited December 5th 2014)
In a very central location in Oslo, you will find this good restaurant with a decent beer selection. If you dont feel for a full dinner, they have pub snacks and lighter meals available. The beer selection is good for Oslo, on my visit there was 2 taps each from: Haandbryggeriet, Nøgne Ø and Ægir.
Quite good bottle selection from Europe, and some from the US. Don´t forget to taste their own beers, best are their collaborations beer. If you belongs to the endangered species of smokers, there are some tables on the pavement for you.
Service could be faster, but overall a nice place.
Decent microbrewery in the city centre, close to the city hall. Pretty good beer selection. Good quality on their own beer, but the collaborations are usually a bit more interesting. The outside tables are pretty popular on sunny days in summer.
Right near the opera house is this brewpub with a nice terrace & typical pub feel inside. The staff was ok, not that friendly though. The selection was ok though I think Crow Brewpub has the best tap selection in town, these guys had macros, their 3 beers(not to style but passable) & some craft stuff though nothing so exciting when I went in. Prices were average for Oslo though the 3 tasters were only 65NOK in total which was nice. It is an ok place if you’re in the area. For beer go to Crow Bar, for atmosphere go to Schousjkeller, if staying in the area for convenience go here.
