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?
Quiet when we visited on a Sunday. Gloomy industrial interior with uncomfortable seating, interior as far from "cosy" as it possibly can get. You come here for the beer ticks, and nothing else. The lady bartender was friendly enough, though. Plenty of taps (both house brews and others), and a rater’s Mekka, as the beers change often, and you can get 20 cl of all beers, at a fairly reasonable price (for Norway). Near Café Sara and Schouskjelleren, two other "must" places for a pub crawl in the area.
Lovely architecture, a nice selection of in-house brews and guest ones on tap, good food (I’ve been told) and a table tennis table. What can be better than a quick ping pong match with a 20 cl glass of imperial stout in you hand? A beer flight with 6 beers (5 own their own plus a sixth of your choose) served in brim full 20 cl milk glasses for NOK 250. But don’t ask for a coke, "This is a beer place, you can have a ginger ale if you need something non-alcoholic!". Free water, though.
Huge industrial looking space with brick walls and rustic details. Upon my visit they had 6 taps with their own beer, the rest was filled with high end imports and some solid Norwegian craft brews. They had a pretty solid bottle list consisting mostly of imports that are hard to come by in Norway. The prices were a bit steep, but it is a plus that you can by all of the beers in both 20cl and 40cl glasses. I went there on tuesday evening, but I was told that it gets really packed during weekends.
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.
I have to admit I had a miserable time here, but it’s partly the fault of visiting on a Friday night. Tried two of the Crowbar beers but neither was notable (one was overspiced, the other had diacetyl in it), and there was nowhere to sit either upstairs or downstairs...so I sat on some stairs above the second floor for a bit while Mike and Jeff occupied a couple of table-less recliners at the top of the steps. The noise and isolation devoured my mood utterly, and I could not recover...even when a third recliner was obtained, the din and overall bad vibe overwhelmed me with the urge to leave, which I did almost blindly. I walked around the neighborhood and bought an apple at a nearby shop, which settled my nerves quite a bit, and fortunately returned just as M&J were leaving. Doubt I’ll return to Oslo in general, but I’d only give this place another shot at less crowded times if I did. Kinda has a generic noisy pub vibe, like Anywhere USA...no real soul, just a watering hole.
20 haner, hvorav 5 egne. Mange spennende gjesteøl. Wifi. Fint at de serverer både 0,2, og 0,35 glass. Blkid og imøtekommende betjening som serverer med entusiasme. Matservering. Goldt, industrielt interiør. Her har de satset stort - håper at de lykkes!
Broad assortment of beers on tap, and some bottled beers as well. Service is pretty lazy, but I guess they like brewing more than making money and pleasing the customer.
Very good atmosphere and ample room. Food is very tasty (I had their kebab), but expensive.
