Also a quite rare and odd place. An old farm that now operate even as an restaurant. You get some traditional Norwegian dishes with their own beer made at this farm for ages. Lovely friendly staff. 10 minutes drive from Voss railroad station. No good idea to walk. The low score is due to the only beer that is interesting is their own. This is truly a nice place and highly recommendable!

A pub, bar or brewery taproom? Not at all! This is a farm where you can enjoy local food and a traditional beer in an old wooden storehouse (Norwegian: stabbur) Tasty food, unique beer and very nice service! The host really spent some time with us and I can’t complain about the price for beer, food and guiding. (260 Nok) A fantastic cultural experience. Recommended.

A must visit if you are passing Voss. More like a living museum, which happens to brew an old traditional farmhouse ale. No kveik at our visit, seems like the kveik had gone bad some years ago, replaced by ordinary baking yeast, beer was tasty, the food was delicious, and we also got some good stories from the owner and brewer. Also had a look at their production facilities for the sheep heads, interesting ++ Be sure to visit, you need to order in advance, but its worth it.

A 10 minutes drive from Voss will bring you to this unique place which no serious beer hunter should miss. Both Norway’s only smalahove factory (annual capacity 70.000 smalahoves) and a restaurant serving smalahove and cured meats. We were met by the exeptionally hospitable owner (and brewer), who served us his version of the traditional vossabrygg before giving us a tour of the premises. We ended up with enjoying their excellent cured meats and a pitcher of his beer. A truly memorable evening!

A farm outside Voss that’s both Norway’s only smalahove factory and a restaurant serving smalahove. They also serve traditional Voss homebrew made with kveik (family yeast). Lovely place where smaller groups eat in an old wooden building, served by the owners themselves. The smalahove (which really is burnt, smoked sheep’s head) is delicious, and the homebrew is really good. As far as I am aware, this is the only place on the face of the earth that will serve you Voss-style beer made with kveik, so easily worth it just for that, but the service was great, the food was great, the surroundings were great, and what more could you possibly want? If you’re not squeamish I recommend seeing the smalahove factory, which the most insane thing ever.

Beware that you <em>must</em> book ahead. Also beware that you’ll need taxi. They have a really expensive limo service if you prefer that.
