Very welcoming and authentic. Small selection of beers brewed in the premises, all of high quality; also local brews in bottles. Large event spaces for music, tour groups and darts tournaments. Nice indoor, cellar feel and outdoor patios featuring enormous old tuns from the previous brewery. No food in the day we visited, but the menu features game (moose and deer). Not to be missed while visiting Lillehammer.
Well worth a visit. Producing quite a traditional selection of beers, and serving only those in the brewery pub - located in a very intimate and cozy basement. Occasional local live bands in the Cavern-like (yes - Liverpool!) music room. Beware, if you have to go to the toilet while the band is playing, you actually have to cross the stage to get there! Turn right at the bass player, then left when you arrive at the drummer! Make sure you also visit the inner room with the beer bottle museum, showcasing some vintage bottles from the early days of Norwegian craft brewing (Akershus Bryggeri, anyone?)
Cozy cellar quite central in Lillehammer. Friendly and attentive staff and quite decent food. Several of their own brews on tap and they are quite nice, nothing exceptional, but decent. Lots of old beer bottles and some stuff from the winter Olympics as decorations around. Well worth a visit.
Nice place with character populated with local beer enthusiasts. Beer selection is quite decent, but like most brewpubs, it has a small number of beers with a wide-spread variety og types. Nothing too extreme, and itís somewhat mildly hopped and perhaps a bit on the fruity and flowery side. It is well worth planning a visit if youíre passing by.
Located just one block away from the main street in Lillehammer, this brewpub is still quite hidden. Entering the hallway leading down to the pub, you are met with pictures of nature surrounding the city. Inside, the pub is placed in the cellars of the old Lillehammer brewery that got closed down in 1983. Filled with objects and images from Lillehammers history, this pub honours itís town and itís inhabitants. Behind the counter, you see the polished brewery in all itís glory. Overall, itís a cozy place, and a great place to have a pint or two of each of their 5 own excellent beers on tap. I didnít have the food, so I canít really comment on that, but it looked nice on the menu. If you let the staff know youíre a beer enthusiast, you should receive great service. At least we did. The manager opened the pub for us a good 3 hours before it normally opens, and gave us a tour of the place. With their patio being built, this brewpub will have a great place to have a beer in the sun during summer, with the huge old brewkettles from the old Lillehammer bryggeri as protection from rain. Will definitely come back.
Nice place with three of their own beers (pils, amber ale and stout) on the menu when we visit the brewpub on a Friday eve early in February. The beer was found in excellent shape and served at the right drinking temperature. Homemade and beer-friendly food for a reasonably price - I had a delicious dish called Moose in Bayer. Our company had the pleasure of enjoying the food, the beers and the friendly service for a couple of hours. The pub will expand their range of brews in due course and will start to bottle some of the ales. For the time being, Lillehammer Bryggeri makes one of the best pilsener in Norway (06.02.2009).
A Nice Brewpub in historical house. Nice service! The staff told me the history of the old brewery(Lillehammer Bryggeri) and a lots of picture who told the Industry history of Lillehammer. Nice staff, and werry nice friendly staff. The beer was surpisely werry good! I come back soon!

In the old lagering cellars of for 20-something years defunct Lillehammer Bryggeri, the new Lillehammer Bryggeri has installed itís brewery and serving area. Itís quite rustic with itís vaulted roof, long tables and benches. The beers was a really pleasant surprise, and the staff were welcoming and friendly, asking our questions and telling stories. Didnít try their food, as time was limited. Iíll be back!
