A pub/restaurant/nightclub focusing on draught beer. 16 taps, but they will soon have 26. British beer is the priority. When I visited they had Fullers London Pride Cask, Magic Rock High Wire, three Nøgne Ø, one Haandbryggeriet, CB Pilsner and others from the British Isles. Bottled beer from Nøgne Ø, Ægir, Brew Dog and several from England. The burgers are awesome! October 13th Kick Malt & Mat arranged a mini beer festival and a "German Octoberfest" (Visited October 13th 2012)
Laid back restaurant, ambience music played on low, darts in the corner, rather dark interior, newspapers, candles on the tables.......
But they got a nice selection beer wise, Magic Rock- The Big Top on tap when I visited in feb 13. Nice selection of bottled stuff as well. Food is good, or even a tad better than good. Well worth a visit. Slow service, too busy for the employees when i visited in feb -13, result in a rather low score for me.
You’ll find good food here, the other beer serving places in town are just around the corner, and there’s quite a few beers on tap and bottle as well. There were too many standard English bitters earlier on, but they’ve adjusted the selection, so now it’s more interesting, serving both standard Norwegian micros and some more obscure ones. Mostly friendly service as well, but it’s pretty crowded and noisy there in the weekends, as almost everywhere else.
Visited on a Wednesday evening in June 2013. I had a very relaxed visit, the place was almost empty. Nice central location and a friendly staff. They had quite an impressive line up of tap beers. I tried a couple of beers, no food for me. Well worth a visit if in Kristiansand.
Har vært her to ganger nå, og blitt like imponert over det fine og varierte utvalget av fatøl. Høflig men ikke særlig entusiastisk betjening. Hvordan er det med ølkunnskapen fikk jeg ikke noe inntrykk av.
This place is getting better now and can offer a decent selection of interesting beers from tap and bottle. Friendly staff and good food.
The beer selection has improved a lot lately and seem to continue in the same positive dirtection, score adjusted April 2015
Large tap range, great kitchen serving amazing burgers, but also high end 3-course meals that they’ll partly make and skillfully match with beer. The service was excellent when I was here, professional and friendly.
