Stockholm Top Beer Places – Pub Guide – Ölkrogar

The World
2021 10 18    17:01

Latest update: October 19th, 2021


During the corona pandemic, the Craft Beer selections were reduced at a lot of places due to lack of visitors and also due to delivery problems, which still can occur. However, the selections are now really on the way back to normal. In September/October still reduced selections are given in blue below the previous text. And, these details may now show to change very quickly. These lines states “Current”.

Still valid corona restrictions are: Please stay at home if you are not feeling well – and wash your hands often! Also if you’re not vaccinated you still have to keep 1 meters distance to other people.


Stockholm is an amazing Craft Beer city – not only the Akkurat place, but pretty many other great places as well, create that picture. Also some really classic institutions connected to beer, that is worth to know, are mentioned.

With reservations for any (sudden) alterations made at the places.

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 4). 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 on 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 420 different Whiskys – they comes and goes.. Live music last Sunday every month. Open until 12 pm Sundays – Tuesdays and 1 am Wednesdays – Saturdays. (Opened 1995)

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 start-up Craft Beer breweries. Usually 10-15 nice Belgian beers on tap and around 500 Belgian bottles/cans, or, if you count all the different vintage years, the amount counts at least to 700, or maybe 800 bottles/cans. Thursdays are most often special, run by Jens Skrubbe. Dogs are welcome in the first room close to the street.

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)

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 55 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, 1 Cantillon and most beers available at the main bar. Bakfickan is closed Sundays and Mondays. However, 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 2020 with a lot of seldomly seen beers. New owner in 2017. Outdoor seating also in the alley Södra Bankogränd. (Opened 1889)
