We were a party of 3 who turned up for the tour at 15.30h. The first stop is the shop which contains a wide selection of national and international canned and bottled beers and soft drinks and a very well informed Manager. After buying our tickets, we were shown a film on the history of the Mack brewery which was... More

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

Historical place in Tromsø, a "must visit" not only for beer lovers, but also for people who is not used to drink it, because "I don't like". Try one of the dozens beer they produce and you'll surely find yours! Highly suggested!

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

Really interesting tour and the pub has over 50 beers on draught, plus there are also bottled beers to chose from. the beer is not cheap, but then it is Norway and its just expensive every where. The Micro brewery has its own bottling machine just installed so now there's even more choice.

I mean, you can, but why bother? What you want to do is save your money and try and load of the beers available in the pub. Just ask the staff for your preferred choice. The menu is staggering! IPAs, Double Black IPAs, Stouts, Pilsners - it's all here. And there are crisps too (for £3). There's a stuffed Polar... More
