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.
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 wasn’t 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, Ø 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 ‘normal’ 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.
A nice place for beers. They have quite an interesting beer cellar and brew their own beers. A vintage selevtion of westvleteren, lots of magnums and ,75 plus a nice selection of geuze and lambic. A must for the beer hound if u are in Oslo
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.
This brewpub is located right in the city center, so there are many tourists. It’s 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.
One of my two favorite places to get good beer in Oslo (the other being Schouskjelleren). Nice people working here, good changeover on the taps, an extensive bottled selection. The beers made here are overall pleasant, and from time to time they make a real winner. The food is matched to the beers, you get a good beer pairing if you ask, and they make my favorite onion soup ever. Value is not really applicable, this is Norway after all and you’ll feel like you’re being robbed no matter whether you’re a tourist or you live here.
Ambiance is good, quiet day, but the mood is good, service is not that good, its my 5-6 time here and everytime it seems like the vaiter is "just on work", this time we are to people that ask for menu, we got one, and she did not give any recommendation, this is a beer place, please guide us and have fun with the big selection :) did not have food this time, but tried that before, and that is good :)

A place to visit in Oslo. Some own beers and some others. Nice selection of vintage trappist and fine vintage beer. The food is nice.
Heretter blir det Amundsens på meg de gangene jeg besøker Oslo (men har ikke prøvd Schoukjelleren ennå). Godt utvalg både fra fat og på flasker, og betjeningen er imøtekommende og har kunnskap om ølene de selger.
