I tasked both Isbjørn and Nordlys beers during the tour, the first very refreshing and the second a rich warming beer. Alcohol free beers generally don't taste so great but Mack Freeze is excellent, makes it easier to be the designated driver!! The brewery tour was enjoyable, the film is the best part with a lot of historically interesting information... More

It was very interesting tour, it very clearly states outside the building about the fact that the actual brewery has moved and what time the tours are so not sure how there could be any confusion with that. It was a very informational tour and the guide knew alot of knowledge, she was making jokes which was good as well... More

Naturally I think it's wonderful because it has the same name as me! Only problem is they said they couldn't post anything to me so I was limited to what I could take, and what wouldn't break on the plane.

Visited the pub Ølhallen several times and joined a guided tour of the old brewery of Mack beer. Very informative tour, with nice movie about the foundation and modernization of the brewery itself, guided walk in the old buildings and chance to taste some samples of beer and to eventually buy more (also smaller productions) at the end of the...

An interesting activity to visit the Brewery and join in the guided tour which explains from the history to the products and the making of alcohol. The great thing is that one gets to sample some beers as part of the tour and it is really very informative and educational when you see how they have done their part in... More

Visited in the cold afternoon of Dec '15 and amazed to see 50 tap beer choices plus the shop where they sell their chosen varities. Extremely Friendly staff. Went on the brewery as well which was very interesting as it was my first time.

There's a souvenir shop just right by that I will expérience in a few minutes I ll let u know ! As everywhere in Norway it's expensive but I... More

The Mack Brewery has the feel of an old-fashioned pub. It's decor features plain brick walls and wooden tables & chairs. The only decorations are assorted memorabilia and a standing polar bear that you pass on the way to the bar, the bar behind which the numerous taps can be seen. There is no kitchen so the food is limited... More

Wanted to take the 15.30 tour. Without any notification it started at 15.00. The staff was plain rude in telling us we where too late. If this is the way these people work then the beer must be lousy as well.

Very nice range of local beers, a true plesure for beer lovers, and if your in the center of town - it's really great to warm up a bit inside the bar. As most places in norway - it isn't cheap: One 0.5 liter+one 0.33 liter costed us almost 20 euros.
