The Mack brewery had moved out of Tromsø. We had a enthusiastic guide. She told about the beer and her work as a brewer. The tour includes a movie about the history of the brewery. Only 2 small tastings. Why not give 4?

We went here right before we had to leave for the airport. Everyone behind the counter was very helpful about which kind of beer we would like. They were spot on! The place itself is cozy and perfect to chill out after a long day...More

I really liked the atmosphere in the bar, there is lots of traditional Norwegian memorabilia scattered around and of course the huge polar bear! The selection of beer is fantastic and there are a range of glass sizes to suit everyone!

I am a huge fan of Norwegian beer now thanks to Mack! The bar has an excellent selection of Norwegian beers and the staff will even make you a tasting menu based on what kind of beer you like (IPA, lager, witbier, etc.). The waitress...More
