“Great selection of beers, but no tasters?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

We went for lunch, and opted for pulled pork and fish and chips. All good, but nothing extraordinary.

The selection of beers where great, including a large selection of taps. However the beers where only served in 0,3l and up and no tasters/smaller sizes where possible (according to a grim barkeeper). If you really want to communicate and reach out with your beer "religion" this needs to be fixed!

“Beer drinkers' paradise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2014

There is a "thing" for so-called English-pubs at the moment in Gothenburg (perhaps the whole of Sweden), which usually means a bar decorated to resemble a Victorian parlour pre-electricity: low lighting, flock wallpaper, dark furniture and paintings of hunts and/or ships on the wall. This is normally accompanied by so-so beer, mediocre food and not the most pleasant of staff.
Well - if you are ever in Gothenburg I recommend that you avoid all such establishments and wend your way to Ölrepubliken without hesitation. The decor is light and airy, with paintings by a well-known local artist giving the place a real harbor town feeling. The beer selection is extensive - there is a full printed menu to browse through, the food is great (try the mussels) and the staff incredibly friendly and efficient.
All in all good value for money, pleasant relaxed surroundings, and a great place to meet friends and enjoy a good pint.

“A little gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2013

This is...amazing. My friend took me and my partner here, and we would NEVER have found this ourselves.

First, the staff are amazing. Passionate about their product and really welcoming - like something out of Cheers. I am not a huge fan of beer, but the guy and gal worked with me to find beers/ciders that I could found palatable. They brought samples to the table - and kept the drinks flowing. They were also cautious that we were not looking to spend too much cash...However, be realistic - this is Sweden so it's heavily taxed.

Second, the selection of drinks is amazing. The *book* of drinks is extensive. It covers every kind of beer or cider that you would ever want. It ranges in price - so be careful!

We also ordered a snack platter which was delish.

The place is also clean and well decorated with good furniture. It doesn't feel dated or too modern - and is just a great place to spend the night with friends.
