Former Fraserburgh firm BrewDog officially opened the doors of its first bar in Norway, as it continues to spread its craft beer revolution globally.

Located at Markveien 57, 0554, Oslo, BrewDog Grünerløkka brings the total worldwide bar count to 28, and will be the fourth Nordic bar to be opened by the maverick brewery, following the launches of BrewDog Stockholm in 2013, BrewDog Gothenburg in 2014 and BrewDog Helsinki earlier this year.

With a capacity of 250 people over two floors, BrewDog Grünerløkka has 20 beer lines serving a range of BrewDog beers as well as guest local and international beers, with dedicated taps for sour beer and cider.

The bar will also offer around 50 beers in bottles, focusing on beers that are less readily available in the region.

The bar will host live music gigs, beer & food pairing evenings, as well as regular tap takeovers and brewing master classes.

BrewDog Co-founder James Watt commented:“Norway is one of our biggest export markets and was always high on our list when we were looking for new cities to set up a BrewDog home. Oslo has one of the most vibrant craft beer scenes in Europe, and we are thrilled to be adding to the awesome craft beer culture of this Scandinavian beer hub.”
