This week we visit: Norway
Norway is an expensive country, especially when we are talking alcohol. Because of this, you will not want to be wasting your money when going out for a beer. To this end, we have decided to give you a brief guide into the best places to go for a beer in Norway.
Schouskjelleren is one of Oslo’s favorite places for beer and a large part of its appeal is the building, an old Schlous brewery whose cellar houses the pub. They feature a selection of around 20 beers on tap and plenty more on the bottle menu. You should also check out the Oslo Microbrewery, the first of its kind in the country. They sell only their own beer so the selection tends to be somewhat limited from time to time. If you like delicious food to go along with your beer, then Crowbar is the place to visit in Oslo.
If you find yourself in Trondheim, you should definitely check out the Trondheim Microbrewery, the second-oldest in the country, producing exquisite beer and also serving mouth-watering food. Another pub to check out in Trondheim is the Den Gode Nabo, where you simply have to try Stjørdalsøl, a beer made from heavily smoked malts.
In Tromsø, the place to be is Ølhallen, a traditional pub which has been open since 1928 (only letting women patrons since the 1960s). Their selection of beers is excellent, even though it is limited solely to Norwegian beers. Other Norwegian beer spots of notice include Ekspedisjonen Skjenkestove in Loftus, Cardinalen in Stavanger and Henriks øl & Vinstove in Bergen.
