Stockholm Beer Guide

Stockholm is Sweden’s stunning capital, and stretches across fourteen islands. Lake Malaren flows down to the Baltic Sea and ferries take visitors between the different islands. The city is a beautiful meeting of old cobbled streets and modern structures, and is a cultural hive of activity. We’ve put together this Stockholm city guide to share some of our favourite places with you…

Where to find the best beers…

First up on our Stockholm city guide is Akkurat. They serve up some fantastic cask conditioned beers, and also boast an incredibly varied bottle list. There’s a style here for every beer drinker, and staff are happy to find the perfect pour for you. They also have a great range of whiskeys, we love finishing the evening with something from the extensive list. This is also a live music venue, so there is always something going on. Oliver Twist is another great spot for beer. You’ll find a varied bottle list of UK and US beers, as well as some cask ales, mostly hailing from the UK or local breweries. And of course, you can’t visit Stockholm without stopping into Omnipollos Hat. Omnipollo are masters of playful flavour combinations and styles, so be adventures and try some of the crazy beers on offer. Oh, and there’s pizza too, enough said!

Top locally brewed beers to look out for…


Sundbybergs Koksbryggeri began in a small kitchen in an apartment. Over time, things started to take off, and the team moved into a stunning old church. You can see the brew team at work from the bar, which is absolutely fascinating. They host tastings, where you can try their range, which use unusual ingredients such as beetroot and ginger. A truly unique experience to be had here. Another one to look out for is Nya Carnegie Bryggeri. The team behind this brewery are Carlsberg and Brooklyn. Carlsberg bring the quality control and distribution expertise, while Brooklyn provide the food pairing and experimental brewing ideas. A match made in heaven! And of course, you must look out for Modernist Brewery. These guys pull together innovative brewing skills and incredible design. The artwork is a key part of the experience when drinking these beers, and you can buy limited edition prints from them too.

Our Stockholm city guide to great eats…

We are real suckers for an open kitchen, and we love seeing the chefs at work at Rolf’s Kök. Here you’ll find modern Nordic cuisine at its finest. The dishes are simple, based on combining a few ingredients in a creative style. Unlike many restaurants, they encourage beer as well as wine, which is such a refreshing attitude to dining. For a slightly bizarre dining experience, check out Aifur. This place is named after the Viking ship Aifur, and diners sit at huge heavy wooden tables. The room is filled with replicas of artifacts found in graves and excavations across Europe. There are old musical instruments and the menu aims to replicate ancient recipes. A little slice of historical fun here! And for a classic Swedish hot dog, look no further than Günter’s korvar. Simple and affordable, sometimes there is nothing better than some top quality ‘junk food’.

The best sights in Stockholm

Judge us if you like, but we absolutely love ABBA The Museum! Discover the history of this iconic band, from the spangled costumes to their rise to fame and golden records. You’ll leave on a high, singing and dancing your way across the city. If Euro Pop isn’t quite your thing, you might like to check out Vasamuseet, the maritime museum. The Vasa is the world’s only surviving ship from the 1600s and is quite astonishing. Uncover the past and find out what life was like for the crew aboard this impressive vessel. This is one of the most visited attractions in all of Scandinavia. And if you love getting outside, you must head to Millesgårde. This sculpture park provides an escape from the busy streets, you’ll find moments of pure relaxation here. Take your time and wander around the extensive grounds, enjoy the sounds and marvel at the feast of arts on display.
