The pub that got me started on something other than lagers. Immediately fell in love with their IPA, even though I’m not sure it would impress me now. I guess I’ll have to check the next time I visit my old campus. Good introduction-beers, with sample trays of their own different brews.
Trondheim’s only brewpub. Their beers are quite good, especially if compared to the boring macro lagers you get everywhere else, but a bit expensive. I’ve generally experienced good service and bartenders who can describe the various beers. They have a nice selection of beers, and they always have a seasonal beer. Ambiance can be hit or miss, on weekends it can be crowded with shouting drunk people who "just want a beer".
Quite typical average American style brewpub with rather typical American brewpub beers. Nothing spectacular but nothing really boring either. A nice range of non-offending beers between 4,5 and 5,5 % ABV. On the positive side is the fact that they have 8 beers on tap, they are not particular expensive, a spacious building so you will always get a seat and the staff is friendly if you start talking with them. The negative thing is that thee beers is not exiting enough to stay any longer after sampling them, better off to Den Gode Nabo. They where not willing to sell me the sample tray, but had no objections to sell me 8 different 10 ml glasses and place them on a sample sheet I found at another table, isn’t that a bit weird? Anyway, it’s a must visit at least one time place.
The microbrewery in town.
Slow service. The beers are not worth a trip to Trondheim, but if you are there, you have to visit. Copper kettles on display, but the people working behind the counter does not know a lot about the brewing process.
Did not try their food, but their sample trays are ok. A place frequented by students.
This place brews their own beer. The lager is aweful, bur some of the other beers are okey. They also make seasonal brews. The Christmasbeer from 2010 was great at 7,5% ABV. The place doesn’t set you in the beer-loving mood, and it’s a crownded and noisy place during the weekend . They have darts. Try the seasonal brews, stout and maybe the amber and IPA (not very bitter). Stay away from the rest. Low ABV on all brews except the christmas brew. Overall the best place in downtoen Trondheim, but not a favorite.
Centrally located in Tronheim with 8 taps (of which one is rotating). Pretty spaceous with lots of wooden and copper interior decor. Service is quite slow and a bit reluctant. You have to dig a bit to get information. Their selection is not bad for a brewpub, although there are no fantastic brews. They do seem to serve them all at the same low temperature. This , along with the lack of proper glassware (- tulips would be nice), detracts from any great aromatic experiences.
Their Stout was quite good, but you have to wait for a 15 minute tapping procedure, so you might want to have their Amber or their Pilsner (Trondheimspils) while waiting.
You can get a full sampler "tray", but again you have to negotiate to get started on the "instant taps".
Prepare to spend some time.
Food is pretty good - decent burgers, nachos etc. Didn’t see any beer ingredients or beer/food matching though.
