We join the Brewery Tour, we thought we will walk around the Brewery and see the production, at least some machine working... Because the Brewery had already move to a new location, therefore the current Brewery has now become a laboratory. And the tour can be complete within around 100 walking steps. The tour guide explained things well, and after... More

This northernmost microbrewery is turning out beers since 19th century. The choice is stunning - taps and taps of different brews! Very cosy interior. Great place to relax and recharge after all day of sightseeing.

The northeren most brewery in the world. 500 km north of the artic circle. Fantastic story and a great look in the cultural history og beer making. The actual brewery is not located on the site any longer, but they left stuff, for you to see, and sometimes brewmasters brew there.. You can buy different types of entrance tickets depending...

A excellent tour and very reasonable priced. Mach brewery has a long and interesting history. Also why they moved away from the centre to a more Eco site along with the most up to date technology. Of course you get to taste some of the many different beers they make. It is a must visit, just a short walk from... More

If you want to drink a beer in an original place go to Macks´s Brewery, it is the northernmost brewery in the world. 63 types of beer and really friendly staff! If you like drinking beer you will love this place! =)

The Mack brewery, the pub that is left on Storgata, and which seems to be a frequent stop-off for tours of the town, is a vaulted bar with a stack of different beers on offer. You may well meet one of the players who tries to emulate Henri Rudi, a great raconteur who made this place his own with tall... More

50 beers on tap. Didn't do the tour but the bar is a fantastic place. The guy behind the bar is so knowledgeable. I tried 3 before I bought one, he asked what I liked and fitted the beer to my taste. They serve it in sizes from 1/3 pint up, but as mine was 9% that was good you... More

Having seen the high entrance price for the brewery tour and tastings we enjoyed our Mack's beer elsewhere in pints.

We visited the bar at christmas just gone, 2014. It was our 2nd visit in less than 2 years. The beer is wonderful, a tad dearer than we are used to paying in the UK but very good. We had the christmas beer and very enjoyable but there is so much to choose from it is hard to pick one.... More
