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 youíre in the area. For beer go to Crow Bar, for atmosphere go to Schousjkeller, if staying in the area for convenience go here.
As the new editing rights have failed to load the opening times, they kick off at 11.00 Mo-Fr, 12.00 on Sa, 13.00 on Su nad stay open till midnight, some days later. Despite the address it is 50 metres off Stortingsgata up Roald Amundsen gata. A brewpub cum specialist beer bar, with sports action, sadly - though the whole system was down on my visit so conversation was in the ascendant. Acceptable home brews and an eclectic collection of other beers from the bottle - though 250 sounded optimistic and there were quite a few also rans.
A beautiful pub in the heart of the touristy part of Oslo. Nice front patio that sits around 50 with view on the busy Oslo. Nice warm and inviting leather & wood interior that sits around 100 people. Beer list comes in a nice leather menu and is separated in three parts. First the tap list is quite extensive, about 40 taps with 15 regulars not-so-interesting offerings from abroad (Guiness, Fullers, Paulaner etc.) and the remaining 25 tap lines dedicated for their homebrews and other Norway micros. When I was there the tap listed in beer menu wasnít quite up to date but they have a black board that was up to date. They had 4 of their own beers on tap when I was there. Second part of the beer menu is the special bottle list, quite interesting. Some items I took note of: 3 Fonteinen Armand & Tomme ($45), Speedway Stout ($50), Stillwater Existent ($30), a bunch of Lost Abbey 750ml ($40), Westvleterens ($45), a bunch of lambics (Cantillons LP, Tilquin, Staff Winter, etc.) for about $45, ō for awesome ($45), variations of barrel aged Emelisse Imperial Sout ($20), LA Framboise De Amorosa ($40). Lervig Konrads ($20), Black Tokyo Horizon ($60), and so on and so on, the list is three pages long. Many of those prices may seem crazy but this is Norway. That list is undoubtedly different right now but that should give you an idea. The third section in the beer menu is the Ďnormalí bottles which are somewhat more affordable and mostly consists on micros you can buy at the Vinmonopolet stores. I had three of their own beers on tap and I found them rather disappointing. I also had the 3 Fonteinen Armand & Tomme which was surprisingly affordable given its style and limited nature. Good food menu that goes way beyond basic pub fare. But this is Norway so expect a hefty bill. Service was super friendly and knowledgeable. I was a bit disappointed to have all my beers served in the same generic dollar store snifter glasses, even my 3 Fonteinen Armand & Tommy. Prime location, and crazy beer list. I really enjoyed everything about this everything except their own beers.
Nice bar close to the Oslo station.
Got about 9 of their brews avail in samplers for a cost of around 30Nok a beer most being quite tasty or decent without any of them leaving a bad memory. Did not try the food. Sat at the bar as it was a bit too warm outside.
Friendly service by Magnus who offered detailed explanations of the beers. Even went for a few more beers to Crowbar after my visit.
I heard their bottle selection is rather lengthy and well sported.
Well, I like the place, and then I donít. Quite a few of their own beers are really boring, but they have a very decent selection of other beers. Itís a quite good looking place, but then itís also some kind of sportspub. Service has been quite good, although a bit slow on my visits, so no complaints there, but the area and clientel isnít my cup of tea, so itís never a top priority for me to visit Amundsen. But itís still worth a visit if in Olso, thatís for sure.
This place is a bit of a victim of trying to be a tourist trap, a sports bar, a place for after work drinking and dining and a serious beer bar/brewpub.
There are some very fine beers here, both bottled and on tap, but try to find a quiet time to visit. Sampler glasses of all the draft beers.
This brewpub is located right in the city center, so there are many tourists. Itís big, the interior is nice looking and you can sit outside if you fancy. The service is good and polite. They have lots of taps with just three of their own at my visit. The other taps include both industrial lager and lambic, so there is something for everyone. The best part this place though is their bottle menu - with particular focus on the vintage selection. In here you will find many lambics, many vintages of Belgian favorites and even the illusive Westvleteren Red Cap. It cost me 625 NOK, which was cheaper than DHVL, where they charged 100 EUR. There were four left after I had mine.
A nice English looking pub in the center of Oslo. A sparse selection of they own beers, but they make up for it with a good selection of Scandinavian breweries and some international selections as well.
Visited the brewpub and rstaurant in the daytime, quiet then, and the TV screens were off. Their own brewed beers are only part of the lure here, they have also a wide selection of other beers, with short tasting notes in the menu. They even had Westvleteren 12 and 8, only place in Norway Iíve seen them. Nice interior, central location, friendly staff. Decent food too. Will surely come back.
Overall a fun experience, as there are tons of bottles to choose from, and the service was quite good (although understandably got more strained as the place got busy). British pub feel and relatively spacious but seemingly quite popular...take care not to go at busy times unless you like that kind of bustling, noisy atmosphere.
