Stockholm Top Beer Places


19      Akkurat            – Visited January 2024
SÖ – Hornsgatan 18      OS      RA      W     

Once this place was rated number 1 in the world at (from 2014 until early 2017)! Now the place is number 3 on that Ratebeer list. Whenever I’ve entered through the years, I get a feeling this is in a class of its own. Very good selection of Craft Beers on tap – 15 taps are rotating pretty quickly (at the bar-counter corner), while 9 others are more steady Craft Beer taps. Also 2-3 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. There is a Black Book listing around 45 limited releases, 190 Belgian bottles/cans and around 50 other maybe more common beers. BUT, there is also the impressive Red Book listing around 360 vintage beers from Belgium, the USA and other countries. The place sometimes runs different kind of beer tastings. There is also a beer club where you can ask to be a member. Around 450 different Whiskys – they come and go. Live music last Sunday every month. Open until 10 pm Sundays, 12 pm Mondays – Tuesdays and 1 am Wednesdays – Saturdays. (Opened 1995)

CT – Vasagatan 50      OS      AC      CONCEPT: Belgian beers     🐕
Reliable place – a place with the greatest selection of Belgian beers in the northern part of Europe. 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 800 Belgian bottles/cans including different vintage years. Some naturally sells fast. 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 1 or 2 guest or collaboration beers on the 10 taps, but mainly their own. Nearly always fabulous ones like their own Nebuchadnezzar, NOA or Armageddon and a lot of other great beers as well. Now and then interesting tap takeovers. Around 10 great bottles/cans, but, the available selection do really vary a lot. 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)
