I’ve been there a couple of times before and always been happy with the beer and food, but I was a bit disappointed with the prices now. We bought food and with the food I would have wanted 0,5l, but they only had 0,33 glasses of their own beer on tap. And this at the cost of 88kr (for an IPA).
This place has very much a "brewpub" type feel, with mostly locals here. 11 beers of their own on tap, with a bunch more guests. A big plus is you can do a 4 x 20cl flight of their house beers for 155NOK (great deal for Norway). Beer quality isn’t great, but a couple were quite decent. Service is helpful and friendly. Can’t say it’s a mandatory stop due to beer quality, but it’s ticker friendly. Nice little stop.
Nice, pretty relaxed brewpub with a “local” feeling. Nice selection of own beers together with some other interesting stuff, mostly Norwegian (at least the night I visit them). Friendly but rather busy staff. Did not try the food. Don’t know if it is so much more to say about this place. Visit them if you are in the area, not sure if it’s worth the detour if not just for the ticking?
Updated rating: Finally back again after four years. The pub is much the same, but know they are a brewpub, which wasn’t the case back in 2010. Beer selection is impressive, I tried seven of their own beers from tap. Well, the quality isn’t top notch, not bad, but decent enough. Their best beer this evening was Løkka CDA (Black IPA) A big plus is that the brewpub offers 4 x 20 cl to 155 kroner (Nok) I had two of those! Helpful and knowledgeable staff.

First of all, the Google map location for Grunerløkka Brygghus is wrong. It is not situated that far from the city centre. It is nearby The Nighthawk Diner and Aku Aku Tiki Bar just south of Birkelunden Park. We entered the place a cold evening a Tuesday in November. It was crowded but a pleasant atmosphere. The beers on tap were shown on a chalk board. I headed for their house brew from Nøgne Ø, Single Hop Citra IPA alias "Kjell Pop Single Hop" A good beer! (Visited November 23rd 2010) Total score: 72
Very crowded at weekends, expect up to eight of their own brews. Good quality beers, but it is a bit pricey.The beers keep getting better, and you may now order a four beer sampler.

Went there with some collegues on a friday night. Had booked a table in advance and also toured the brewery.
Had a very enjoyable evening, with excellent food (I had a burger), and awesome beers made by the brewery.
It’s apparently a popular place in the neighborhood and they offer a good dozen draft beers of which about half are their own. The quality of the beer was average to below average so there wasn’t a lot that interested, sadly. Low ceilinged, chill music, dark pub with no particular theme or focus, just a hangout for college aged drinkers.
