A nice, modern and minimalist brewpub in Vik. It is good for a drink or two, but I would recommend to have food elsewhere.

One of the freshest and tastiest burgers I’ve ever had. Especially the ground beef used. Great ambiance for hanging with friends of a couples date. Recommend!

Because a misunderstanding of the staff, i was told that I haven't pay for part of food. Instead of having a dinner, i had a embarrassing time and have to pause to solve the issue... so, no service orientation at all.

This place was terrific! Big beer menu and the beer they brew on location was very good. I had the ribs which were some of the best I have eaten. My wife had the bleu cheese burger and it was also very good,

Sorry, I don’t know. But given late October should be fairly busy because it’s the Northern Lights season, I would think so.
