“Calling all beer lovers: go to Henriks!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

This bar was recommended to us for its 54 different beers & we weren't disappointed. Better even than the selection land quality of beer on offer was the perfect landlord, who was able to steer us to the right beer for us, based on us describing our preferences in England & then to remember our orders from one night to the next!
Great atmosphere in the bar - a good mix of locals & tourists. Most people sitting down which seems strange to a Brit used to standing at the bar though!
We kindly remind Johnny the landlord to try out the Merchants Inn in Rugby next time you come over to England (& there's a pint of 29 in at the bar for Ian, as a thank you for the recommendation & sorry we missed you this time).

“Beer blackboard and beer sommeliere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

They do have an impressive beer-list exposed on a huge blackboard. The place also have the only educated beer sommelier in Norway, so quality is top notch. You will find a large selection of international beers but also a fine selection of Norwegian microbrewery beers. It is situated close by "Den National Scene" (main theatre in Bergen and the oldest in Norway) in the city centre.

“Amazing beer choice.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014 via mobile

What a hidden treasure! There is an excellent selection of beer on tap which has been thoughtfully selected by knowledgeable staff. Behind the bar were very friendly and helpful people who would happily discuss beer choices. A wonderful experience we enjoyed daily during our stay in Bergen.

“What a great little bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

I stopped off here for a couple before I caught the flight home on business.

It's a little tricky to find up a little corridor, and up some stairs. It's not the biggest bar I've ever seen but the atmosphere is great and seems friendly. Many beers on sale and I asked for a random Norwegian beer and wasnt disappointed. I cant remember the name of it now and I'll have to go through quite a few again to find it.

I'll be back the next time I'm in Bergen.

“Nowhere to sit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

The place was packed when we arrived, and there was nowhere to sit down and enjoy a beer. We ended up leaving rather than being pushed around, spilling beer everywhere.
