Uppsala Top Beer Places – Pub Guide – Ölkrogar

Latest update: December 4th, 2021

 

During the corona pandemic, the Craft Beer selections were reduced at a lot of places due to a 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. 

More or less temporary alterations or reductions are given in blue under “Current” below the text about the place. And, these details may sometimes show to change very quickly.

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.

 

Uppsala has last years developed into a flowering Craft Beer city. Not only an old place like O’Connors seems to prosper, but really some new places as well.

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

Some explanations

This pub guide on Uppsala Top Beer Places, is compiled and updated from how fun Beertil think it is to visit these places from a craft beer point of view. Places with lower ratings can naturally be very good from other points of views.

Neither Food, Whiskey, Wine nor Drink selections are included in the ratings. Ratings are considered over time, some places vary, some don’t. If not otherwise stated references are made to beers coming from craft beer breweries.

Highest rating is 20. Rating stated before the name of the place. The name of a place is clickable to reach the place’s website.

OS = Outdoor seating summertime or when the weather allows. 

BREWPUB = A brewery including a pub.

CONCEPT = The place has a certain concept.

U = The place has the bottle list on Untappd. In case you do not have the app, google the name of the place and the name Untappd.

RA = Real Ales are being served

W = Also specializes in a great Whisky selection. (Other places may very well have a fine Whisky selection too).

🐕= Dogs welcome

 

Further details:

  • Some places may be closed Sundays and/or Mondays.
  • During the summer (June, July and August) some places have a bit more limited selection on tap and bottle/can.
  • At more and more places you are welcome to have smaller glasses (15cl, 20 cl or “half glasses”) – in order to be able to try some more beers.

The menu is written in Flemish and English – not in Swedish. 24 Belgian beers on taps in a very nice big circular bar. 7 of them are altering randomly. Around 150 fine Belgian beers in bottles/cans, around 25 bigger ones suitable for sharing.  (Opened 2016).

Drottninggatan 8      OS      🐕
Popular pretty small place – clean rather basic atmosphere. 10 very well chosen beers on tap; pretty often hard to find ones. A special list with 90 very interesting beer bottles/cans. Just think of several different beers from each of these fine breweries: 3 Fonteinen, Geuzestekerij De Cam, Hanssens Artisanal, Cyclic Beer Farm, De Gard, Equilibrium, Crooked Stave, Alesmith, Jackdaw, some others and a vast selection of beers from Trillium.

11      Messob                – Visited October 2021
Sturegatan 4      OS      CONCEPT: African beers
Ambitious African Restaurant, very service minded, and with great nice friendly atmosphere. African food is combined with African beverages – including beers – for a true African experience. I had just one excellent beer but still got a carafe of water, a glass and a napkin as well! Around 30 bottles/cans with beers from Morocco, Ethiopia, Angola, Cameron, Tanzania, South Africa, Ghana, Eritrea, Benin, Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Namibia and maybe some more African countries! Some are however licensee brewed in Germany. Special outdoor garden summertime.

Current: Around 15 bottles/cans, though the amount varies due to delivery problems depending on the pandemic.
