Charles generously showed us around the brewery when the restaurant was closed, and we returned for a very nice selection of beers. Their own brews were not bad. Food was good. Definitely worth a peak.

Visited September 2012.
This was the first stop once getting into Sweden. It was dumping rain and even though our hotel (which was very IKEA-like) was about a block away we ended up walking a couple circles around the place before finding it. We got to meet Danko there which was nice. He gave us a tour of the brewery in the back. It’s a very small setup crammed into the back of an office but they make decent beer on that system. If you want to do a flight of something the bartender will pick which ones you get to try, which was an interesting touch. Prices were very high but that’s what you get for being socialist. The bottle list is strong to very strong, the fries were OK, and over all it’s a fun place to hang out.
Somewhat small location that was actually right near our hotel and is pretty close to the Central Station. Huge bottle selection, decent tap list, and friendly people to drink with. The prices are a bit expensive, but it’s Stockholm, so that’s pretty much what you get. Cool little place, though.
An odd place, this. Glancing through the other reviews, it seems people either love it or are a bit ambivalent. I fell into the latter category, despite (or perhaps because of) having been looking forward to visiting ever since they invited me to be a friend on Facebook!
You enter on the corner and there’s the brewery and a tasting room behind a glass wall near the door; then there’s the shop (which didn’t look very well stocked), a long bar and a small area with tables at the back. There was nowhere to perch so I ordered my drink and went to sit in the tasting room. The whole place was strangely lacking in atmosphere and the service was a bit offhand. The beer list was good though – three of their own beers on tap, several De Molens and lots and lots of bottles.
I’ll give it another try when I’m next in Stockholm – perhaps I just caught it on a bad evening.

On my way to Linköping I stopped for late lunch at this place located not more than about ten minutes walk from the central railway station in Stockholm. I have never been here before, and my visit turned out to be a very pleasant experience. In a couple of hours I had a freshly made Caesar Salad with chicken and bacon, three of their own brews – a delicious Orange ale, a fine weissen called Pauline and the splendid Patagonia IPA – and two bottles from their impressive beer list. The focus of the week was on Big Beers from the USA. Just like heaven for a ratebeerian. Irreproachable service, cosy atmosphere and relaxing. It is rather expensive and most of the beers are served in rather large amounts, so be sure to bring some friends for rating purposes (visited 01.09.2009)
A hugely disappointing experience. The beers they have made for them are from Riegele and frankly under average. Little selection in terms of swedish micros. The good part is that, at least on my visit, the menu seems to be updated possibly daily (I had a may 30th version anyway). So I would assume that I’m not going to ask for something they don’t have. being a bright kid, I had prepared myself from their extensive website list with 10 different candidates. none were on the real menu at the pub. I actually went for the tap because none of the bottles really interested me, I doubt they had more than 300 in there. Not a fan. the very beery decorated, modern cafe seems fake after those initial lies: the board still claimed they had 1400 different beers.
Very fun place..enormous bottle list that seemingly never ends. They brew their own small batch stuff that was very nice. About 6-8 of their beers were on tap along with guest taps. This place also has an affinity for Goose Island beers and the bottle list included some weird GI stuff I had never heard of. Lots of odd bottles where you are bound to find something interesting. Not necessarily cheap though and De Molen Tsarina Esra Reserva here was priced at some hilarious price that I think was a joke...something like 1,999 Swedish kroner. Definitely fun and worth going to.
Visited on November 16, 2012. Fairly close to just walk over from the central station. Nice, clean, though a bit posh restaurant feeling to the ambience. Long bar with no seating, though some smaller seating along the opposite wall, creating a corridor by the bar. Two seating areas, one just inside the front door, one after the bar. Staff was fairly attentive and pretty service minded, also about as knowelagable as one might come to expect. Not the best service, but not bad either. Asked to purchse their 3.3% ABV beer to take home, but at 68 SEK (about 11 USD) I almost laughed at them, no, did not buy that one... Prices are high. I got the flights with 5 beers at 10 cl/3 fl oz each, and it was 149 SEK. I do enjoy flights, but this price was ridiculous, but yeah, I got it since I could score 5 ratings I can’t elsewhere. Some of the bottles were decently priced though. Did not eat this time around, and with the prices and how I feel for other bars in this city not sure how often I’ll return, not even with them often having new beers self brewed.
I visited on a quiet monday evening and had a good time. The staff was friendly and knew about beer. The selection is mayve not as good as I first heard, but not many pubs in Stockholm can offer more beers. The owner also asked for some more time til he´d be satisfied with the selection. I guess that means it will get better and better...

Another good bar with a fine selection of Belgian beers, but this side of town is really not the best place for Swedish micros.
