This dark and cozy cafe-turned-pub in the heart of Bergen also doubles as a brewery (but not a brewpub, as the brewery is located in another part of Bergen) so they usually have 4-5 of their own Baran beers on tap. Except not when I was there the last time. They’re in the process of expanding the brewery and having thrown out the old fermentation tank haven’t brewed for a while, causing them to run out of beer this summer. But according to the bartender they expect to brew the first batch on the new equipment in a week or two. Despite the lack of Baran beers they offered half a dozen decent guest beers on tap, including a fairly fresh Flying Dog Snake Dog IPA and Swiss sour ale Trois Dames La Tentation. Baran is also less packed at night than say Henrik, so this would be a good choice if you arrive in Bergen late in the evening. The bar also has a fairly good bottle menu, certainly larger than Henrik’s, including Sam Adams Utopias and a very decent doppelbock from Tucher Bräu. Note that the bar used to be famous for its persian food, but the kitchen is now closed so there’s no warm food to be had. Last visited: 2014-09-05

An interesting place with their own beers on tap. Not of superb quality any of them, a tad too gentle as well, but it’s a nice place to sit back and relax. They keep other beers as well, including some imports they do by themself. A place I can go back to.

A really charming cafe in a neighbourhood packed with more and more beer bars. The interior is darkly lit and feels more like a coffee house than a beer bar. This is the establishment for Baran Bryggeri and featured 9 of their beers on tap. You can order 4-beer samplers for 120NOK, a pretty good deal for Norway. Unfortunately the beer quality is not good, but that didn’t actually diminish the experience. The service was top notch - very personable, informative and helpful. I would go back again for sure to see how the beer quality has improved or at least to have one of the guest taps. Great place, not so much for beer.

Nice and quit, it is possible to talk. It seems like it is a student place, the beer selection is ok. The bartender should have a uniform (so it is easier and see who is working). And the bartender should be more active to collect empty glasses, taking orders, checking toilet, the total. But the place is good, and i will be back :)

A well places, cozy little student-bar with a good selection. Most of the time the staff have good time for a beer-talk, and I really like the beer-of-the-month concept they have. Have not tried the food, and probably won’t do do either, but you don’t go to Baran for the food.

Baran Cafe is in the center of Bergen, and used to be a hippie-oriented student hangout in the early 2000’s, until a fairly recent makeover has turned it into a more all-round pub. Nevertheless a liberal atmosphere surrounds the place, and both furniture and art point slightly towards the urban "avant garde". Friendly and fairly knowledgeable staff who will engage in a conversation about beer if you are interested. They also serve food, of which I have tried little, but the few things I’ve had there have been decent enough. For Norwegian standards, they have a pretty good selection: 10-13 taps with some international macros and some Norwegian micros, mostly from Haandbryggeriet and Ægir. Baran serves a selection of around 70 types of bottled beer, which is way above your average Norwegian bar. Also, prices are very Norwegian, which is of course to be expected, but nothing outrageous as Baran still caters heavily to the student/young adult segment.The bottle selection is rather sprawled, with no apparent focus areas or system to the beers in stock. However, I did find beers from breweries I’ve never seen other places in Bergen in recent times (such as De Molen and De Dolle) the last time I was there. Beware though; the staff are a bit lazy updating the shelves, so your pleasure of finding something interesting can turn into sudden frustration at times, as they mostly don’t sell the last bottles (I guess they see them as decoration or something). Overall a nice place, somewhat overlooked and definitely a bar with the potential to be a real haven for beer lovers. So far, Henriks and Naboen have a slightly more professional approach to beer and promoting beer culture, but Baran should not be considered far behind.

Besøkte Baran to ganger i sommer. Desverre veldig vekslende kvalitet på servic og kunnskaper, og vanskelig på få smaksprøver. Brukbart utvalg (selv om mye er standard for dedikerte ølhunder), og Beer of the Month er en god ide. Skal så avgjort besøke dem neste gnang jeg er i Bergen, og jeg er spent å prøve deres egenproduserte øl!

Visited in September 2014. A small and cozy place with friendly service. Their own beers were not available during my visit. The selection was good but not outstanding.

Resembles a modern day opium den. The bar is divided in two stories. The cellar - which features a Foosball table is fairly dark and damp. The upstairs is kinda crowded but ok before the drunken students stumbles in. A good selection on tap, in theory, as they are often sold out of most of them. When it comes to bottle you can luck out as it seems that there is no real plan for what they have in the shelves. You might just luck out.
