Been a regular customer for the past 5 years as it is my college town and I live just around the corner. If Nøgne sells it, they have it or can get it. Great and varying selection throughout the years. Occasionally a good selection of Cantillion, actually fair priced. Increasing amount of great homebrew on tap. A bit pricy for a Norwegian student. Excellent service, bartenders running down to the basement to look for new stuff if you ask.
Food has been great, usually take visiting family there and have probably had the complete menu by now. Christmas menu is especially good. Could use an update on the music list
-visited during zwanze day- The good: Nice "light" brown decor. Great selection of Nøgne bottles. Very cheap! (Dark horizon 4.edition and aruroa borealis 180 kr) Cozy. Nice outdoor seating. Great service. The bad: The taps tasted funny and probably needs some cleaning. Some even crazier stuff from Nøgne would be nice.
Nice place and good service, just too bad that they didn’t have any of their own beers on tap. One botttled house beer, Apotekergaarden Fin & Fjong Torvåsen Blonde. A good beer. Two beers from Nøgne Ø on tap and many bottles from Nøgne Ø and Lervig. Hosts Zwanze Day 2014 here in Norway. (Visited August 23rd 2014)
Ok place, meeh service, bar upstairs was closed in the beginning but have some ok on tap. Food was also homemade. They have everything from Nøgne, some Lervig and a mix of others. Didnt quite go reach my expectations on either beer, service or food but it could be so mutch better with what they alerady have. Tried some of their own bres, thei where decent
Nice place, good service, great selection of Nøgne Ø beers plus some others and if you’re lucky a couple of their own beer. Food is all right, maybe a bit expensive. Perfect place to visit during the summer, sitting outside a warm day and watch all the tourist walking by or maybe go for the local summer cabaret in the evening.
A really nice place, pity Grimstad is so far off the beaten track. Nøgne Ø on tap, and 15-20 different bottles. The food is fine, and now they also brew their own beers, at least the first two were decent. Looking into the crystal ball I predict several more visits in the future.
