We went here for my birthday dinner, and it was a success! Lovely place and interior. Amazing food! A bit pricey, but the food were really worth it! They got two pages food menu and about 30 pages with beer, quite cool I think! They even had glutenfree and ecological beer options. And wine and liqueurs and whiskey. Lots of... More

We ate dinner here on a cool, drizzly night in June. The staff were friendly, there was a great selection of beers, and the food was very tasty. It was a bit crowded and we were seated very close to the next table, but it was fun and had a good vibe. After Norway, it seemed almost cheap!

While I can see that this place would be a good pub in the evening, it was "dead" on a weekday lunch time and they were only serving bacon with pancakes for lunch, literally no other options available. On the plus side, the meal was large, tasty enough and the cheapest meal we've had in Sweden.

This is definitely worth a visit if you are into beer. The beer list (they have wine and other drinkable liquids as well though) is basically half a Bible thick and the beer knowledge of the staff makes me more than envious - I would have said that there is a nerd warning here, though these guys are definitely not...

My colleagues and I are sitting in the best craft beer and whiskey place in Gothenberg. I honestly chose the first authentic Swedish pub after the plethora of Irish bars (eugh!!) that popped up. Couldn't believe our luck. A beer menu with over 300 options. We're in paradise.

Very close to the Maritime this is a great pub with an excellent choice of beer. It gets busy in the evening so you will have to book to eat after 1700. I didn't eat here but the menu and the food I saw going to customers looked great. Not sure if I would bring small children here.

If you have friends that are beer snobs, you are likely to run into them here. We were about to get seated, just to discover that a friend of my husband was sitting next to us. He and a friend had also traveled to Gothenburg this weekend. It was totally random. I had the steak tartar, which was outstanding. Although... More

Finally found it. And it's well worth finding. Lovely atmosphere inside. Dark woods and a friendly hustle and bustle set the tone. The beer has to be seen to be believed. It's that good. From German lagers to American IPAS. From locally brewed ales to British style ale. It has it all. The food was fabulous. I had fish and... More

Just stopped by for a quick beer, and ended up having 5. Great place with attentative and friendly staff, a HUGE selection of beers both local and not so much. Didnt have a chance to eat because we had other reservations, but a great place if you are a genuine beergeek.

Thank KarianneKF
