Lots of Belgian beers, of course. Situated in a quiet street, but yet central location. Nice patio in front but the classy restaurant inside was a bit dimly lit. No bar stools by the bar but plenty of tables around. I guess most people eat here. We just popped by for a beer. I had Belgobaren IPA, brewed by Riegele in Germany (?) Friendly service. From Belgobaren there is an inside entrance to Freys Hotel's. This turned out to be the last pub we visited together before the wimps, Bjarte and Leif Inge, returned back home. I had some more places to visit and one more night at the hotel. (Visited September 23rd 2017 with Bjarte and Leif Inge)
Belgium here we come. Outstanding selection of Belgian beers. Probably the best in Stockholm. Also three of their own beers. Made in Germany……hmmm. Really good food also. The whole place looks like a restaurant. You can also sit outside. 10 min walk from the central station. Absolutely a good plan to have a beer or two here.
Klassiskt ställe och en av de första ställena i stan med bra utbud på öl. Bra läge perfekt för en efterjobbet aktivitet.

Belgobarens was a first beer stop on arriving in Stockholm for our birthday weekend away. We arrived on Thursday 17th November 2016. Belgobarens is located on Bryggargartan it’s very close to the central station depending on which exit you come from, we came from the Arlanda Express platforms and so it was straight out along Vasaplan and over the Vasagatan junction and it’s on the LH side.
It was quite a good sized establishment, there was seating for those eating as soon as we entered both ahead and off to the LH and RH sides with high stools around the bar which was ahead. It was clearly popular for lunch and to be fair the prices were quite reasonable, we went and sat at the bar and ordered a beer but soon ordered lunch and sat at one of the tables. We had a house beer each I had Belgobarens DIPA and Loz had the IPA, these were a tad pricey mine was 95 kroner and Loz’s was 77 kroner as I recall, so about £8.27 and £6.20 respectively.
We sat down for lunch, incidentally my Moules Mariniers was the same price as my beer and came with chips, mayo and a help yourself buffet salad, Loz had a Burger with chips and salad at 159 kroner. There was a good mix of folk here of all ages and types, with students, business folk popping in for a quick, cheap lunch and a few tourist folk like us. There were a few display fridges about with beers for sale though 595 kroner for many of the 75cl bottles that I was buying in Dranken Geers last weekend for €7-8 was an eye opener.
We liked it here, the lady who served us wasn’t the most beery knowledgeable when I kept querying beer stuff, like who brews the DIPA and IPA, she didn’t know, but this didn’t matter because in all other respects she was really lovely, pointing things out to us and generally being really helpful. We didn’t take a good look at the beer menu, but being a Belgian bar we could see that there was a number of familiar beers that we liked available. This is one of the closest beer places to our hotel (Radisson Blue Waterfront) which is also near the station, so I guess that we’re likely to pop in here again.
Visited on a late evening. Very Belgian-beer minded bar, shamefully a lot of waste though. Quality wasn’t the guideline in making this menu. Prices are agreeable, so is service. the only ’little extra’ they have are the Black Jack beers. Surprisingly, they never even ever had the struise version, but they still have the de molen black jack as well as black isak. Appart from that, they have some housebeer, but it’s brewed in Germany - if i remember correct. A bit of a ’could-be-more’ place but not bad.
Känns mer som en restaurang än en bar, även om ölutbudet är imponerande. Vårt sällskap var bara där för ölen. Satte oss ute för att det kändes lite väl "fin"-restaurang där inne, och inte många platser vid baren heller. Som ställe var jag inte jätteimponerad, men utbudet var absolut bra. Både på fat och flaska, till bra priser. Bl.a. "kvällens" 75 cl för 99 kr, av bra belgiskt mått.
Belgobaren is Monk’s Belgian beer bar in Stockholm and it proved to be a very decent place to explore Belgian beer. On tap they offered Delirium Tremens, two versions of Troubadour Magma (one with tripel yeast), Valeir Extra, Lucifer and Gulden Draak. Not the most exciting but decent. On bottle they offered a pretty good selection of Trappist and family breweries, including a few rare gems from De Struise Brouwers, such as Pannepeut 2007, Black Damnation II and the fearsome 26% Black Damnation V. Food was tasty but service could be a bit slow. The place did feel a bit packed and noisy at night, more like a sports bar than a beer place. Visited: 2015-08-03
