Craft Beer Guide: 24 Hours in Stockholm
We’re dreaming of cooler climes in this heat, and with Fatou Camara’s run-down of her favourite spots in Stockholm, it’s a welcome – if imagined – break.
Fatou is a warm and open personality on the Stockholm beer scene who also plays around with natural wines.
BREWERY/TAPROOM (OR BOTH):
“With only 24 hours in Stockholm, Nya Carnegie is the taproom with easiest access. The staff are wonderfully knowledgeable and really nice, even at their busiest hours. Right by the water, the view is nothing short of beautiful.
If you have a little bit more time than just a day in Stockholm, going out to the archipelago and visiting the Fjäderholmarna brewery and taproom would be worth the trip. It’s hard to find a better beer drinking location.”
“When it comes to this I have too many favourites – all for different reasons. So, I figured the best way to do it would be to give you guys a well chosen list!
Indigo – a beautiful bar, and the staff are even more beautiful. They make amazing cocktails, but I mostly just go there after work for a plain pint and simply enjoy the atmosphere.
Katarina Ölcafé – the name says beer café, but they also have really good wine . It’s a café where both the staff and guests are just really chill, and you always end up making new friends by the time you leave (because nobody leaves you alone).
Omnipollos Hatt – Omnipollo opened their beer bar in Stockholm in April 2015, and it has been a beloved little watering hole since then.
Bitter Pills – this is my best gay friendly bar; you need to fill up on some positive LGBTQ energy while sipping on something yummy? See you at Bitter Pills then!
Tjoget – this place has everything from excellent wine to good beer to delicious cocktails, and on weekends they’re open ’til 3AM . What’s not to like!?
Folii – somehow, every time I go to this natural wine bar, I end up having such a good time that don’t see my bed until five in the morning…
All of the bars that I’ve listed are on the same island in Stockholm – the hipster island Södermalm. If you’d like to explore a watering hole outside of Södermalm, then Ambar is your best bet, and my all time favourite whether I want delicious wine, mouth-watering Japanese cuisine, or just really good rum.”
A BITE TO EAT:
“Woodstockholm is a bistro that changes its menu every other month. With each menu there’s a new theme; none of these themes have anything to do with each other, so you never know what to expect other than that the food, wine, and beer experience will blow your mind.
La Neta is a cheaper option with excellent authentic Mexican food.”
“Most of the spots I’ve mentioned are on Södermalm, which is a good area for shopping and just walking about. One can also find the photographic museum on this island; a museum that coincidentally has one of the best views of Stockholm. On your way to the photographic museum, maybe take a short detour to the historic street of Fjällgatan.”
