I just loved this place when I visited Oslo in 2004. It’s located in a delightful shopping area/neighborhood that’s rather upscale. The beer was pleasant and should be familiar to anyone who’s spent time in US brewpubs, as the types of beers and quality are about the same. Quite enjoyable, and in a lovely neighborhood. Lots of tasteful wood paneling and snazzy decor.

Probably the best place in Oslo if you want to enjoy some fine quality beer on tap. A brown pub with lots of seats all around the place, clean toilets too. Nice and helpful bartenders. They played good rock music too, and it was not too loud - which is a huge plus. The only drag was that they seemed to only have 20 songs in their collection that night. They had 6 beers on tap when I visited: Oslo Pils, Bitter, Steamer, Stout, Porter and Hefe Weissen. I tried all during the night thanks the the 0,33l glasses. The stout was excellent, so was the porter.
Prices are high, but not any higher than you would pay for a Guinness anywhere in town, absolutely worth it, highly recommended for anyone who visits Oslo. Excellent place!
For me a trip to Oslo is not completed without a visit to the only brewpub in our capital. It is always a pleasure to be a guest at this cosy place, either in the rather lazy early afternoons or in the lively evenings. Well made brews served by a friendly and knowledgeable staff - mostly young women who know their craft. Oslo Pils, Steamer, Stout, Export, and this year’s Juleøl were on during my visit in mid-November 07. In the first week of Advent they will have the Julebrygg ready - I’ll be back then!Oslo Mikrobryggeri is not far from Centra Colosseum with its good selection of beer under 4.7% ABV. When visiting OMB don’t forget to ask for EN ALEN ØL. Last visited: 13.11.2007
This is one of the nicesest pubs in Norway! Watch out for beautifull and medium to big breasted girls behind the bar. By far the best bier on tap in Oslo. Also notice excellent live music every other saturday. Well worth a visit!
A rather typical brownish bar, rather small, but efficiently disposed furniture makes a lot of sitting spots. Extremely expnsive prices, up to Oslo’s standards, but the beers were some of the best I had in Norway, possibly right behind Nogne O. Wide range by Norwegian standards too.
Cozy place, brown pub. Music can get a little loud late in the evening. Not all of the staff knows enough about their beers in my opinion, seeing as it’s a brewpub, but they’re nice and friendly. Anyways, their beers are good, they keep 6 or so beers on tap at any time. Prices are steep, but the whole experience is nice. Lovely place to have a pint.
A friendly place for tourists to go. The bartenders were attentive and friendly. The locals were willing to strike up conversation. The beer was not the best I’ve ever had, but was clearly better than average. There were 5 or 6 beers on tap. I was surprised by how few people were there, but that was the same for the whole city. Good selection of music being played, although there was nothing live when I was there (I was staying close by, so I went in 3 consecutive nights).
I have visited the Microbrewery a lot of times when I stay in Oslo. I like the beers and I think they do their best to make good beer. I would like them to have a better selection and to make a lot more beer. Try som new styles?
