Some recent major news, alterations or additions
– Vasastan Ölhall, a new big beer place in the northern part of Stockholm with 36 taps, opens at Ynglingagatan 9, “in some weeks”, which may probably hint at the end of August or September 2022. It was initially planned to open in January, but the delay is due to the fact it was found the floor in the Kitchen was needed to be upgraded due to water damage.
– Folk & Friends Hornstull – Hornsgatan 180 has sadly closed down. However, they have in mind to open 2.0 sometime in the future.
– Brisket & Friends will open a second place in Stockholm city, probably in September, this time in Södermalm at Östgötagatan, not far from the Mikkeller place.

Stockholm Top Beer Places
19 Akkurat – Visited May 2022
SÖ – Hornsgatan 18 OS RA W ♫
Top-rated – Number 1 – beer place in the world, on ratebeer.com 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 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 400 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)
19 Internationella Pressklubben – Visited June 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. Usually 10-15 nice Belgian beers on tap and around impressive 600 Belgian bottles/cans, or, if you count all the different vintage years, the amount counts at least to 700, or even towards 800 bottles/cans. Dogs are welcome in the first room close to the street.
BEER EVENT: Most Thursdays: “Skrubbetorsdag” – when Jens Skrubbe brings lots of fine and interesting Belgian beers on tap. Sometimes also some other days in the week; check Facebook.
Current: Closed for the summer July 10th – August 14th.
19 Man In The Moon – Visited May 2022
CT – 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, 30 Hawaiian Craft Beers on tap, a great 8 Tap Takeover with Cigar City, in January 2018 an amazing OHIO Tap Takeover with Hoppin’ Frog, Jackie O’s, Listermann, January 2019 New York Tap Takeover, August 2019 an outstanding Evil Twin tap takeover with 30 beers on tap flown in from The USA and January 2020 a great Florida Tap Takeover with 80 beers altering on the 30 taps. Impressive 250 bottles/cans selection, including around 100 Belgian, 60 US, 30 Swedish, 20 UK and 10 Norwegian bottles/cans. Among the US bottles/cans there are very nice ones including for instance Listermann, North Coast, Toppling Goliath, Hoppin’ Frog and 11 different Fifty Fifty Eclipse Imperial Stout.

18 Mikkeller Bar Stockholm – Visited May 2022
ÖM – Brahegatan 5 U OS
A great place with a second room a few steps up. There are 24 Craft Beers on tap, usually maybe half of them are Mikkeller beers. Around 80 beers in bottles/cans, around 40 of them Mikkeller beers and the rest from other breweries, including some mead. Bottles/cans list also on Untappd. Nice Danish ‘Smørrebröd’ to eat and some other dishes as well. (Opened 2017)
18 Mikkeller Bar Södermalm – Visited May 2022

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. Around 70 bottles/cans, including magnificent ones like Baghaven, Monkish, Stockholm Cellar series and naturally Mikkeller. Bottles/cans list also on Untappd. (Opened 2021)
18 Omnipollos Hatt – Visited June 2022
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 May 2022

A perfect combination of a church, a brewery and a tap room in a great harmonious atmosphere. 14 – 16 taps pouring amazing beers.

18 Sorbon – Visited June 2022
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 80 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.

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. 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 seldom seen beers. New owner in 2017. Outdoor seating also in the alley Södra Bankogränd. (Opened 1889)

Located in the old Bryggeri Munkbron premises, finely refurbished in a house from 1643. The brewery is visible from part of the premises. The same brewer continues to brew very fine beers served on half of the taps running. 8 taps as at the end of June, but hopefully soon more on the 12 taps. Naturally these often also include some guest beers. The place has started with 5 bottles, but these are soon to become more. The kitchen, which is run by Melker Andersson, is serving around 13 great ‘Smörrebröd’, and also a couple of main dishes and some different desserts. (Opened 2021).
Current: Closed Sundays, and Monday evenings.
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. This may however be somewhat delayed as there are additional ventilation equipment needed to be installed in the brewery, which seems not to be ready by June 23rd.
The really pleasant fine cellar downstairs probably opens September 1st, maybe with the old great bar counter. The cellar will have focus on beers on 12 taps.
