A totally kickass place in the city centre, having been open since 1928 and fairly recently converted and upgraded to feature over 60 beers on tap. A good handful of them are from Mack, including their more interesting beers (still not great quality), with the balance all from Norwegian micros. You can order in three sizes, starting in 0.17L pours, which helps keep the cost down, but the prices are still insane -- more so than anywhere else in Norway I’ve been: 45-75NOK for a 0.17L pour here, with 0.5L pours going for around 125-190NOK. Extremely friendly owners who are very hospitable and eager to please. One of the best bars in all of Norway for sure. If you only come to one bar when in Tromsø, this has to be it.

Been at the place before - just at closing time. This time I was more lucky. In the meantime the place has changed considerably. Not so dark anymore, room split in small sections but first and foremost the bar with the many taps Iominating. They claim to have 67 taps, I only counted 65. Might be my fault. All the beers are described on a huge blackboard. Maybe they should try with some electronics. What a job to write alle these beers by hand. A good deal of interesting items are spread in the room. Apart from the bar a full grown polar bear is the second most photographed item. Staff friendly and quick. Some of them have knowledge about beer. Good Norwegaian micros on tap. Price level high but do not expect anything else from NOrwegian places. If in Tromsø a must see place.

Largest tap list I think I’ve ever seen outside the US. They have the full line of Mack beers, a large number of creative one-off house beers, and a big selection of the best Norwegian craft breweries. A large cellar space with areas of sitting and standing. Very high prices.

This place is one of the best bars I’ve visited, with freaking 50 taps dedicated to Norwegian micros from all over the country it’s unique as far as I know. Their own beers labeled Ølkjeller were all excellent, at least the four I tried. The clientele was a mix between tourists, and local drunks - one of the latter entertained a group of Germans with a rather eccentric performance. The service was good. Beats any place in Oslo, I could easily move to Tromsø knowing a place like this exists.

Some of Norway’s best ales are now available from 50 taps behind the bar. Lots of beers from Nøgne Ø, Haandbryggeriet, Ægir, Kinn, Austmann, 7 Fjell and so one. This is also the best place to sample beers from Mack’s microbrewery in addition to their range of lager beers, displayed on another 17 taps at the front of the bar. Just great. (Updated rating from 21.09.2014)

Ølhallen (the Beer Hall) is an institution in Tromsø and has been serving beer since 1928. The Hall is connected to the northernmost brewery in the world – The Mack Brewery - and function both as a Brewpub and as an outlet for its products. This is the only place serving beer in Tromsø that opens as early as 9 a.m. But they also close early, usually at 5 or 6 p.m. (Saturdays at 3 p.m. and closed on Sundays), so be sure to check the opening hours before visiting. Central location in the main street of Tromsø. Friendly and attentive staff. They serve most different kind of lagers, but in 2005 the brewery started producing ales. Ask for the months Bryggmesterens Spesial (The brewer’s special ale), and you might be lucky to find a bitter, a pale ale or a stout from cask. Among the lagers the most interesting should be the seasonal xmas beer, and a very nice münchener (Bayer) and a bock. Highly recommended is also Gullbok – a blend of two strong lagers. No food, except snacks – try the dried fish. Non smoking inside. The guided tours at the Mack Brewery starts here. A pub crawl in Tromsø usually begins at Ølhallen.

Bryne  (903) Bryne, Norway | August 16, 2014| Updated September 3, 2017
A world class brewpub? 9 beers from Mack’s own microbrewery, Ølhallen and an impressing amount of domestic craft beers on tap. Ølhallen has taken a conscious choice and only offers Norwegian craft beers on tap. Good service and staff were both service minded and knowledgeable. Free newspapers, a stuffed polar bear, a fireplace and lots of local history photographs and beer labels on the walls. An amazing place in Arctic Tromsø. (Visited July 10th 2014) and revisited July 19th 2017 with Finn and Djoeye

Nice place, with a stuffed polar bear. Very good service (one of the bartender even speaks spanish). They only have Mack beer on tap, don’t know what they have on bottles.

Ølhallen, the brewery tap for Mack Bryggeri, is the oldest pub in Tromsø and celebrated its 85th anniversary the day of my visit (28 February 2013). The interior is rustic, with red brick stone walls and well worn, brown wooden furniture. The walls have much local memorabilia to show, there’s a stuffed polar bear greeting you when you enter and the place just feels old. My kind of place! Because it’s only open from 10 am to 6 pm, you don’t risk running into drunk teens (though you will see some regulars, moving unsteadily between bar and tables). Even if I liked the place, the beer selection was a big letdown - they didn’t have anything else than various Mack lagers on draft and on bottle there were a couple of Nøgne Ø beers plus Chimay Blue, everything else was Mack. According to the bartender this will improve when the new Ludwig Mack Brygghus micro brewery opens up next door, until then their selection will be rather limited.

I’m 41, I’ve travelled to over 30 countries, I love beer and this is my first rating... My impression- An ok, average place... If the bar tender/brewer hadn’t ripped me off...twice. Good luck to you if you choose to go. I won’t ever go back.

Historical and nicely set in the old Mack Brewery. Feels like a classical beer hall. Has kind of a German feeling to it. Interesting opening hours. Ok service. Had liked to be able to get a bit more information about the brews. Mixed crowd. Tourists mixed with the local drunks. Heard that they had some problem with the quality of the microbrews. Only Mack beers on tap but a few other Norwegians on bottle and also some international ones on bottle.
