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.
Industrial feel, brick, steel and wood. Brewing equipment on display. 20 taps, about half theirs. Interesting bottle list. Flights only on Sunday and Monday (!) But half pours available. I had a coupe of halfs and they were decent.
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.
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).
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)
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.
