High-ceilinged red brick and wood-decorating modern open interior. Multi-roomed and with a windy staircase in the back and a chicken roastery and whatever, so it’s an interesting space but doesn’t have a lot of character. On a Friday night it was packed with college-aged drinkers, seemingly just another drinking spot in a neighborhood full of drinking spots. As a brewery I guess it’s pretty small, they only had three of their own beers on tap with a lot of Mikkeller / Beer Here / To Ol / Nogne-type stuff. And the two house beers I tried weren’t anything great. I cracked a smuggled bottle of Bestefar instead. Given the high price of booze in Norway this is pretty typical behavior, I’m told. For this place, it was a good decision since I found nothing on the chalkboard that was interesting or good.
Modern brewpub with 6 house beers on tap, plus another 13-14 guest beers. House beers are quite good, and the guest tap list was very well-chosen (lots from Amager and Dugges). On Sunday and Monday, you can sample all 6 house beers for 249NOK (yeah, that’s a good deal in Norway). Prices are on par for the country other than that - you can order in two sizes which is nice. Service is very friendly and helpful. A must hit when in Oslo.
A brewpub with a great tap selection. I had six Crowbar beers (20 cl) I really liked their Christmas beer and Barley Wine. And the place? Lots of Hipsters, but I can handle that! The pub reminds me a bit about Brew Dog Bars, which I like. Service was friendly and a bartender took one’s time to tell about the brewery and the beers. And, this was a busy Friday evening. I’ll be back! (visited December 5 and 6th 2014)
Yet another excellent beer destination in Oslo, located in the same area as Gaasa, Schouskjelleren and Mathallen. 20 beers on tap displayed on a large blackboard behind the bar. And a fridge with interesting bottled beers is practically placed on the public side of the bar. A rather large place with a modern, minimalistic interior decoration that has got some resemblance to the BrewDog bars in Britain. Quite busy with a mixed clientele at our visit on a Friday afternoon. Open from 15.00 till 03.30 every day. A special beer offering is a six pack (6x200ml) for NOK 249,- on Mon-Thurs. Usually the tap range includes five of their own beers brewed on the spot. Polite service (visited, 22.02.2013).
I am a bit biased about this place. Good beer selection, both on tap and bottles.
Sample trays avalable, only sun- and mondays, very loud music, played on a lousy music system, the speakers sounds like there are blown elements, good music is transfered to noise. Why does everybody behind the bar talk englih....
Just a grumpy old mans opinion, will revisit for sure, but hey, get your act together, sample trays on thursdays as well, huh?- Or is this too much to ask for a brewpub?
Nice brewpub with a cozy and relaxed atmosphere. Great selection on quality beer both on tap and bottles. A bit industrial interior, but of the old type with red bricks and wood, not so much steel and metal. Highly recommended!
A huge place with high ceilings that was pretty packed on a Friday night. 20 taps up on the blackboard provided lots of styles & breweries to choose from. Evan though they wre busy the staff took some time to explain the beers which was nice. No tasters but they have 0.2cl glasses for 40-60NOK. Overall, a nice first stop in my exploration of the Oslo scene.
Cool and minimalist brewpub with numerous other beers, a few doors up from Sara’s Café. Really good design - go explore upstairs. Good use of wood and candles. They serve pork on the spit if you can fine it. I hope it keeps up with the times.
Nice modern kinda industrial area, in a hipster type of area. Interior reminded me of Cycle Brew in Florida.
Had a few of their brews but they also have a nice selection of guest lists. Not possible to do small samplers instead the average 20cl glass running about 50Nok.
1st floor has a small kitchen with limited menu but some outstanding grilled pork and chicken - had the pulled pork and a vegetarian dish for about 85Nok. Good score, yeah it is just pulled pork, but damn it was delicious.
Really enjoyed the visit, plenty of other places to rate nearby - Café Sara comes to mind - but did not get the chance to visit them.
