A tiny little super cool place, straight across from Hotel St Olav. They don't really advertise their presence, the atmosphere is chill and friendly, and they have seven hundred beers. Wow. The rye IPA is astounding.

I've gone here a couple times with a group of friends. The place probably has one of the bigger beer selections in old town. And the savings you'll have will be even BIGGER. The only downside is that it's a fairly small beer cellar off...More

A tiny place that's easy to miss, but definitely worth a visit. They allegedly stock over 800 different bottled beers and I can well believe it. Very knowledgeable staff who have a knack for picking the beer that's just right. My favourite place in town.

But the service was quite rude, we got a pocket warm Cantillon Rose de Gambrinus and the last pale ale was contaminated (came out from the bottle like a fountain) and the waitress told it should be like that. We understand that if there’s a...More

Stopped in with my wife for a nightcap and were glad that we did! It was a little bit tricky to find (under a building, little sign tacked to a wooden door that says something like "if this door isn't closed, then we aren't either")...More
