Some recent major news, alterations or additions 

– The ICA Baren Supermarket at SÖ – Folkungagatan 56 does no longer serve 5 Craft Beers on tap, which they have done in a great way since the opening 2015. Now the five taps serve the same standard taps you find in so many places all over Stockholm. There are only around 15 Craft Beer bottles/cans, why the place disappear from this list.

– Spectacular Christmas decoration at Bishops Arms Sundbyberg – Landsvägen 49. “Just like entering a Christmas tree” someone said.



– Brisket & Friends has opened a second BBQ place in Stockholm in Södermalm at Östgötagatan 25, in the next block north of the Mikkeller Södermalm place. The place enter the list at 15 points.

– New  Craft Beer and Japanese Ramen place called Guest Izakaya has opened at CT-Döbelnsgatan 8 and rises to 16 points.

– Bierhaus has strengthened their German concept by removing the 4 Firestone Walker taps and the Gotlands taps. The 10 taps at the inner bar will be removed. They have now also 16 German beers on tap, why they rises to 11 points. There will soon also be 10 international beers at the outer bar.

– Sad news that Waza Restaurang & Bryggeri, the brewpub, has closed down.

– Portal Restaurang & Bar, with Stockholm Brewing Co. Beers only, entering the list at 11 points.

– Katarina Ölkafé is still looking for a location where a second place can be established, idea now is around Ersta, eastern part of Södermalm. Suggestions are welcome.

– Humle & Humle Craft Beer place at SÖ – Vartoftagatan 51 enter the list at 14 points.

– Oliver Twist has finally all 20 Craft Beer Taps running again.

– Tritonia in Gamla Stan has lost its pub chief – seems a bit yet undecided how the place will continue, but you can still choose among 7 Craft Beer taps and around 15 bottles/cans.

– The new version of the quality restaurant Nook has opened at SÖ –  Rosenlundsgatan 33, 150 meter south of Södra Station. The new place is bigger than the old one at Åsögatan and suits their ambition even better – and the Craft Beers will have an even greater focus. The new Nook enters the list at 15 points.


– Kaja raises to 12 points for running very nice selection beers on the 6 taps and in bottles/cans.

– Vasastan Ölhall, a new big beer place in the northern part of Stockholm with 36 taps, opens at Ynglingagatan 9, “in some weeks”, still unknown when. It was initially planned to open in January, but the delay is due to due to water damage in the Kitchen. It is now ready.

– Brewski brewery in Helsingborg, Sweden, opens a Barski Bar in Stockholm. Not yet known where or when.

– The names of the places are now clickable for reaching the places’s websites.

Stockholm Top Beer Places


19      Akkurat            – Visited November 2022
SÖ – Hornsgatan 18      OS      RA      W     

Top-rated – Number 1 – beer place in the world, on from July 2014 until early 2017! (Now the place is number 3). Whenever I’ve entered through the years I get a feeling this is in a class of its own. Amazing selection of Craft Beers on tap. Also 3-4 Real Ales on tap, and for the way they handle them, the place has received the Cask Marque Award for many years. They have also an impressive selection of beers in bottles/cans – maybe more than 700, including Vintage bottles/cans. Runs sometimes different themes like Franken weeks and the famous Péché Day. The place sometimes also runs different kind of beer tastings. Around 450 different Whiskys – they come and go. Live music last Sunday every month. Open until 12 pm Sundays – Tuesdays and 1 am Wednesdays – Saturdays. (Opened 1995) 



Ask for the red book with all the bottles/cans and vintage beers


19      Internationella Pressklubben            – Visited October 2022  
CT – Vasagatan 50      OS      AC      CONCEPT: Belgian beers     🐕
Reliable place. Formerly a hangout mainly dedicated to the press people. A lot of artists on pictures from stage and screen on the walls in the restaurant rooms close to the bar counter. Very impressive selection of Belgian beers – only – not just from the classic Belgian breweries, but also from newer Belgian start-up Craft Beer breweries. Up to 18 nice Belgian beers on tap and around impressive 700 Belgian bottles/cans. However, if you count all the different vintage years, the amount counts to maybe 850. or, when a new delivery has arrived there may be even 1000 bottles/cans in all. Some naturally sells fast. Dogs are welcome in the first room close to the street.

BEER EVENT: Most Thursdays – and very often Wednesday: “Skrubbetorsdag” – when Jens Skrubbe brings lots of fine and interesting Belgian beers on tap. Sometimes also some other days in the week; check Facebook.


19      Man In The Moon            – Visited November 2022
VS – Tegnérgatan 2      OS      AC      W
Classic very nice ‘Gastro Pub’ with 30 beer taps. The beer selection on tap may, according to season, sometimes vary down to around 18 Craft Beers, but most often provide a couple of fine or rare beers. Own beer Månens Amber Ale, at present brewed by Fjäderholmarna. Very inventive with different high quality seasonal events, for instance Oktoberfest with 30 German beers altering on the taps. In January 2018 an amazing OHIO Tap Takeover with Hoppin’ Frog, Jackie O’s, Listermann etc, January 2019 New York Tap Takeover, August 2019 an outstanding Evil Twin tap takeover with 30 beers on tap flown in from The USA, January 2020 a great Florida Tap Takeover with 80 beers altering on the 30 taps and now in November 2022 a Stigbergets Tap Takeover with 30 beers on tap. Impressive 240 bottles/cans selection, including around 100 Belgian, 45 US, 40 Swedish, 15 UK and 10 Norwegian bottles/cans and the rest from 10 other countries. Among the US bottles/cans there are very nice ones including for instance Listermann, North Coast, Toppling Goliath, Hoppin’ Frog and 8 different Fifty Fifty Eclipse Imperial Stout. Also an  extensive cellar with 350 different vintage beers.

A pretty new fine beer place, strengthening the beer place cluster at Södermalm even more. Nice rather dark walls makes this place into a cozy hangout with also an inner room and a balcony. 20 very well-chosen beers on tap. Naturally many of their own Mikkeller and Warpigs beers, but often many nice guest beers, for instance even from Hill Farmstead.

SÖ – Hökens gata 3      OS      AC      🐕
Small very popular Omnipollo brewery venue. On Ratebeer (spring 2018) considered number 6 in the world among breweries. Not a “Pub” – not a “Restaurant” – great design – certain ceiling lamps shines, while other shines as well! Amazing beers! Often around 8 of their own beers on the 10 taps – nearly always fabulous ones like their own NOA or Armageddon and a lot of other great beers. Now and then interesting tap takeovers. They also sometimes run oven takeovers with guest chefs from fabulous restaurants making pizzas! Very nice non-Italian pizzas as standard. Open to 1 am every night. (Opened 2015)

18      Omnipollos Kyrka            – Visited September 2022
Sundbyberg – Sturegatan 41      OS      BREWPUB      🐕
A perfect combination of a church, a brewery and a tap room in a great harmonious atmosphere. 14 – 16 taps pouring amazing beers.

Bromma – Kvarnbacksvägen 135 at Brommaplan      U      OS      RA
Very nice place – very unusual with such a great beer place in suburban Stockholm. Reliable place, mostly with some for me surprising and interesting beers on the 20 Craft Beer taps and 1 tap Real Ale. They also have 1 house IPA, Sorbon X, brewed by Mohawk. Some beers are served in the correct company glasses, for instance beers from Founders. Around 85 bottles/cans, including some 10 vintage beers. Bottles/cans list on Untappd. Sometimes there has been a fantastic selection on tap! New owner and pub chief from August 2021. They will continue in maybe an even better way.

18      Zum Franziskaner            – Visited September 2022
GS – Skeppsbron 44      OS           CONCEPT: German style beers      
Incredible old classic Beer Hall. The place started in 1889. However a new house was built on the site in 1910, and had then the present interior imported from Germany. The bar has 13 taps with around 7 German beers. The other taps contain beers from Swedish Nynäshamn and Skebo in the German lager tradition. Normally around 40 very well chosen bottles/cans, some interesting German ones, some Swedish and some great Cantillon ones. In an inner room is a fine refurbished bar called Bakfickan – often serving beers from 1 or 2 gravity pulled kegs and 1 Cantillon, in addition to the same 13 beers as in the main bar. On certain Sundays Bakfickan offers live music, see Facebook and their website. In all an excellent place. Sometimes fantastic beer events like last winter German Bock beers never before seen in Sweden. Not to mention the magnificent Zwanze Day 2022 with a lot of seldom seen beers. New owner in 2017. Outdoor seating also in the alley Södra Bankogränd. (Opened 1889)

GS – Lilla Nygatan 2      OS      BREWPUB      🐕 

Located in the old Bryggeri Munkbron premises, finely refurbished in a house from 1643. The brewery is visible from part of the premises.

The place has nearly no bottles, maybe one Nils Oscar. The kitchen is serving around 13 great ‘Smörrebröd’, and  also a couple of main dishes and some different desserts. (Opened 2021).

Current: So far, the beers brewed has been somewhat austere to suit the food, but the intention is there will be more spectacular own beers available too. 

The really pleasant fine cellar downstairs will open gradually November/December, while the downstairs bar counter is not yet built. The cellar will have focus on beers on 12 taps.

15      Nook            – Visited December 2022
SÖ – Rosenlundsgatan 33      OS      BREWPUB

An ambitious restaurant with a very pleasant interior – keeping somewhat of the old Nook style, but in this new location, 150 meters south of Södra Station, the style has certainly developed into an even more sophisticated atmosphere.
At first you find a kind of octagonal garden house with windows all around – except for the side where the 6 Craft Beer taps are located. 4 taps rotate randomly. There is one house beer brewed by Nynäshamns Ångbryggeri called Nook Premiärpilsner. And Nook will start brewing own beers in their brewery being installed in the house below the restaurant. This brewery will hopefully start working sometime February or March 2023.
There are around 
20 bottles/cans, but maybe early next year they hope to land at around 35 bottles/cans. These will be primarily stouts and sours and some others not so common on the taps.
Going into the next room you find a bigger beer room, where there is also a kitchen serving the beer bar dishes. At the far left in this room there is a circular stair leading down to the restaurant. The restaurant is pairing high quality dishes with very suitable Craft Beers. There are naturally wines, drinks and other beverages as well. The wine list contains an impressive amount of around 400 tasteful wines. There is also a room called Nook Market which is serving Asian street food. (Opened 2022).
