“Beer excellent and bar and staff too, avoid tour.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

Ignoring the tour, ill informed apart from the film, the bar and beer are excellent and worth the short walk along the main street. You can try beers not available elsewhere and the beer keller atmosphere is good. Locals drinking there is always a good sign.

“Great way to pass a wet afternoon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

This brewery tour lasted about an hour and included a free drink at the end. Interesting, though unspectacular. The Beer Hall offered a wide variety of bottled and keg beers to try and is a great place to meet people.

“Fantastic beer.. wish I could get it in the uk! Still trying”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

Visited Tromso in February, heard of the Mack brewery. Decided to take the tour. Wasn't the cheapest, but nothing in Norway is! Enjoyed the tour, kind of what you would expect from a brewery tour. Nothing amazing, but a nice commentary from the tour guide. A few little samples along the way. Highly recommend trying Mack's Gold.. very strong, but very good. The Arctic beer was really tasty too. The brewery is moving this year, so if you're visiting Tromso, then this really is a must! Soon to be gone!!

“The World's Most Northerly Brewery Serves Excellent Beers.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

I was most pleasantly surprised at the excellence of the beers brewed and sold here. Mein Host, advised us as to the characteristics of each brew all of which, bar one, were sampled. The exception was the one that they distribute throughout the rest of the country and which he thought was a bit inferior!!
