(Updated from July 2012) Been there a few times, first time was totally ignored by the one bartender until I just left. Other times during 2012 and 2013 I’ve received good service. Decent selection of taps, big selection of bottles. Many bottles from countries I haven’t seen other places. Very nice prices for the kind of beers that you are used to paying a lot more for. Eaten a few times, pretty nice food, though not really special. Nice and spacious inside, have been there crowded as well as nearly empty.
Despite its name, this is not a brewpub but a beer bar with the "house beer" IPA-Nema brewed at the nearby Stigbergets Bryggeri. The bar opened three years ago, summer 2012, and is kept in an open, modern style with white washed concrete walls, ceramic tiles and wooden paneling along the bar and on the lower parts of the walls. Large windows towards Järntorget and the side street lets in the daylight so the room felt clean and well lit. A sign said the pub can take 200 guests, in addition there’s also a pub in the cellar, which opens when the main pub gets crowded. I counted 22 taps, many of them Wisby but also some interesting local beers such as Stigbergets and All in Brewing. The sign outside claimed 250 bottled varieties. Atmosphere at daytime was quiet, so I enjoyed a few beers and a good conversation. The pub also serves hot food but I did not try any. Visited: 2015-05-01.
Big, popular bar right on the square. Well lit, airy, lots of windows. This is by no means a hipster bar, unless you consider anyone under 30 to be a hipster. This is a mainstream, if upscale-ish, young persons bar. A hipster bar would have better beer! They only have 4 guest taps, only 1 or 2 of which would be on interest to someone familiar with the Swedish beer scene. Granted, that’s better than 99% of bars in Sweden, but considering the other choices in the neighborhood, it’s not really a beer destination. It’s a great place to meet up with friends or large groups. They laso lose points for having Brygghus in their name but not actually brewing anything.
Visited at 3.15 pm on Friday 21/03/14, within a few minutes walk of the Rover, Olstugan Tullen 1892 and Bishops Arms Jarntorgets.
This venue, up a small staircase from street level, is medium sized open plan, big wooden benches and stools and lower level seating with tiled floors throughout.
Check out the ornate glass pannelled ceiling!
Pretty quiet during our visit but I get the hipster vibe other people allude to.
Service was good, the guy chatted to me for a minute or two and the line up here was more overseas stuff from the like of Mikkeller and Evil Twin but I aso picked up a few SWE ticks from Beerbliotek, Eskilstuna and others. Approx 25 taps and around 100 bottles made for a decent enough selection.
Decent enough bar, I wouldn’t say this is an essential stop but works well in a crawl of the area if you have the time.
Decent selection of taps and bottles. Modern interior. It’s large, so wont get crowded. Rather relaxing place to have a beer and not have to worry about fighting your way through the crowds around the bar.
