There is a "thing" for so-called English-pubs at the moment in Gothenburg (perhaps the whole of Sweden), which usually means a bar decorated to resemble a Victorian parlour pre-electricity: low lighting, flock wallpaper, dark furniture and paintings of hunts and/or ships on the wall. This is normally accompanied by so-so beer, mediocre food and not the most pleasant of staff.... More

This is...amazing. My friend took me and my partner here, and we would NEVER have found this ourselves. First, the staff are amazing. Passionate about their product and really welcoming - like something out of Cheers. I am not a huge fan of beer, but the guy and gal worked with me to find beers/ciders that I could found palatable.... More

I will be honest: we did not feel entirely welcome when we walked into Ölrepubliken. The main waiter seemed laconic, overly serious and, to put it simply, not at all happy to have us at his place. He was not rude at any point, he just did not seem very welcoming. As the night progressed, we realised that that was... More

a paradise for beer lovers, there is a very big choice, the staff knows how to advise customers and direct them to the appropriate type for the your palate. Unfortunately, the prices are, at least for us tourists, very high. Anyhow, recommend going there

Beers variety is just amazing at this bar. Lots of ALEs, IPAs, Weiss, pilsens, lagers. I ate a spicy barbecue rib and it was just perfect! If you're really fond of beers, thats the bar to go in Gothenburg!

This is a MUST when you come to Gothemburg. You have several burger options, also a 600 gr. one, and a huge beer option.

Tried this place (again) with a bunch of customers (totally 15) and tried their beer tasting menu. Since we where so many we got access to their VIP-lounge. Our waiter was very experienced and had picked up out lots of surprises among their different kinds of beers. The food was delicious (I had a juicy burger) and well presented.

Nice atmosphere and a good selection of beers. The food is probably what you would expect from a pub.

It is famous for it's selection of beers, but the kitchen is as good. Very tasty food, of which I especially can recommend the beef tartar (råbiff).
