Taps of mainly Swedish non-Craft breweries including the regular Gotlands brews, but around 8 taps with a few rotating, mainly local, Craft Beers. One house IPA, True Love IPA, brewed by Ocean. Around 80 (Swedish) bottles/cans in good order including a good selection of for example Omnipollo and Brewski brews as well as a good assortment of local breweries including Electric Nurse, Dugges, Mohawk and Poppels. However, as usual beers comes and goes. The students in the area testify that the food is worth having – at modest prices.

Impressive lots of empty vintage bottles along the walls as decoration. The legend has it that the sketched portraits covering the walls are all regulars that frequented the place every single day for at least thirty years. That’s probably totally made up, but when you see the place it does seem reasonable. Today, there are only major brands in 15 taps, including Leffe Blond, and a few bottles/cans. Carnegie Porter might be worth having at the traditional tavern, though. (Opened 1900)

Places Closed Down

16      Omnipollos Gothenburg
LI – Plantagegatan 3A      OS       
Omnipollo opened their second bar in Sweden early 2018, in Göteborg just off Järntorget. Like the sister bar in Stockholm, there are 10 good taps, but this place has around 20 interesting bottles. Every now and then, there are some highly sought after beers on tap (from collaborating breweries like Tired Hands, Monkish and Crooked Stave). Occasionally there are beer events, e.g. with Superstition Meadery or Stigbergets and a lot of others. There is a sea food-themed menu with frequent rotation. (Opened 2018)

16      The Rover
AL – Andra Långgatan 12      OS     W 
One of the traditional water holes in Göteborg – for beer aficionados and normally also for brewers. The 24 Craft Beer taps have a pretty good rotation – there is always a great selection of both foreign and local beers on tap. There is also some non-Craft beer taps – the change of owners in late 2017 brought a few non-Craft Brews. Bottle selection holds around 100 entries including Belgian sours. Occasionally there are tap take-overs or other Craft Beer events. The food menu is solid, including staff special and burgers. (Opened 2006)

11      Fölk
MA – Hvitfeldtsgatan 10
Very nice bottle shop as well as a place to sit down for a 3,5 % beer or two. Around 80 bottles.

8       Studio Hpksm
AV – Storgatan 22      OS 
A hip and acclaimed Italian restaurant that is not too pricy. You might don’t want to go only for the bar, but with your osso busso or tagliatelle, you can usually get around 20 different cooled beer bottles/cans out of 30 rotating ones, from Italian brewery Elav only. Also 1 tap with Italian beer and 2 others like Lagunitas and TT. 

7       Bang Matbar
SB – Bangatan 22      OS 
Small nice rustic and trendy place. Usually 2 Craft Beer taps, often one from O/O Brewing and around 20 bottles. Simple out-door seating with just plain seating benches.

City Pub
Lorensbergsgatan 6

Delirium Café
Kronhusgatan 2

Deliverket
Ostindiefararen 61

Kellys
AL – Andra Långgatan 28
Around 25 Craft Beer bottles/cans. No interesting beers on tap. Dogs allowed in the first part close to the window.

Mitt Andra Hem
Andra Långgatan 31

Pannrummet (Ödman Brewery)
Gamlestadsvägen 4

Plain Kitchen
Risåsgatan 8

The Temple Pub
Linnégatan 42-44

Wiser’s Pub
Linnégatan 59      CONCEPT: Canadian theme     
Pleasant pub with some maybe odd, but still interesting decorations. One Craft Beer on tap (Last time Poppels). The unusual thing are the bottles from Canadian Dieu De Ciel. The selection is slightly varying, but keeps being around 15 to choose from. There is also another 15 bottles including some Australian beers.
