Urbain recommended we stop in and say hi to Jack, which we did, and were very happy. It was an honor to drink a Black Jack with the man himself, and to see such a nice range of beers in a smallish space. Well done.
During my visit in early September I was very well treated. The girl doing the service seemed to have fair enough beer knowledge, and I was spontaneously offered a sipper of some of their guest beers. The potentiality of beers on taps is about 20 – eight of them were in active use. The choice of bottled beers is both impressive and interesting. Their house ale, called Svea IPA, was very much to my liking. Cosy and enjoyable place in the city centre of Stockholm (visited 03.09.2009).
Quite laid back place. Not that crowded when I visited on a friday afternoon. Very nice and informative staff. Unfortunately, the summer holidays left them short on beers. Still, there wer 3-4 of their own Monks- beers. some Riegele and quite a nice bottleselection.
Visited on January 24, 2009. Easy to get to by subway, located on a busy street, but nothing that bothers you once you’re inside. Got there fairly early before the upstairs restaurant part opened. The girl working was there by herself a while and didn’t seem to know a whole lot about how to handle the beers or what beers they had. Once she got replaced and moved on upstairs, the new gentleman proved quite knowledgeable about the beers they had on at the moment. Tried a nice selection of the beers brewed by Monk’s own micro brewery, which was nice. Also some other draught beers. They had a fair selection of bottled beers as well, so the night could have been long(er) and (more) expensive without us trying too hard. Did eat the meatballs, my friend got one of the hamburgers. Food is a bit pricey, but taste nice. Great service, fairly nice toilets. Will most likely return.
A nice Monday afternoon decided to head down this recommended joint. As soon as you walk in 2 beverage centers awe you really De Struise beers and tons of GI, I’m like am I back in Chitown? Place is pretty small, was warm inside, no one offered to help us so we took a seat, no one offered us menus so we grabbed, no one offered to take our order so went to the bar to place one, you’re sensing a theme aren’t you? The selection si really good and really bad. Its really good because it has tons of GI, de molen, and de struise. Then it has at least one beer from at least 40 countries, possbily more. Its bad because it ways so heavily on 3 breweries then the beers from the random countries are mostly garbage lagers. Decent quality on the high end beers but everything else is garbage. Service was horrendous.
Overall a decent place worth checking out, only place in Stockholm with De Struise so far. However, not worth having more a couple beers at and expect crappy service.
Some of the house beers are brewed in Germany, but they also have a number their own beers, which are brewed just up the road.. They’ve also got a good selection of bottled beer from around the world and some Swedish micros on tap.
Visited 8th December 2015 - On the main street in the center of Stockholm. The place is not amazing. Selection is made on tap with Adelsö Bryggeri beers. Good american bottle selection and also trappist selection. Service is ok but not so more and atmosphere is lower than average beer place. Good place if you want have an american beer but there are much more better place to visit in Stockhom... Ok but not the best at all.

Unlike the other two Monk’s in Stockholm, this one doesn’t have a brewery on the premises. That doesn’t stop them from having a large selection of beers from smaller breweries around the world. Knowledgeable staff and a selection you don’t find everywhere, as well as their own beers, make it well worth a visit.
As the name implies, this bar focuses on American beer, both on tap and bottle, with a pretty amazing selection. But I have two issues with the place: 1) Many beers don’t travel - in particular American IPAs. 2) Even on a Thursday evening the place was packed like a sports bar during Super Bowl, no seating to be found. So my overall impression is pretty low, I would much rather suggest the original Monk’s Cafe & Brewery in Wallingatan which actually feels like a beer bar, not a sports bar. Visited: 2015-07-31
Visited in early March 2009. A nice and cosy place, with not as many beers in stock as the other Monks, but a nice selection of taps and also lots of Monks own brews around. The staff at the moment (young guy with black hair) was very serviceminded and served us beer even though he was in the middle of a lunchrush more or less alone downstairs. He did apologize a few times I went to place an order as he was busy with food delivery, later he came to the table asking what next. As lunchtime was ending he also came to the table and told us about many other good beer places around in Stockholm, which is quite rare for pubworkers to do. A place that made you feel welcome. Located in a good place, which means not too hard to get to. Clean and fresh toilets is also a big bonus. Faster service than on Monks Wallingatan.
