Nydalen Bryggeri og Spiseri is among the nicest eateries/brew pubs in Oslo. Like the area of Nydalen where it is situated, it has blossomed in the vestiges of the industrial surroundings that were once the lifeblood of the area.
You can’t help but be struck by the large brew room to your right upon entering the place – a vast, open, two-story space. The spaciousness is filled with laughter and talk and, together with the industrial brick and cement decor adorned with dark wood, radiates warmth.
It’s a mini beer paradise on the (easily accessible) outskirts of the city. Many taps flow with a wide range of carefully selected brews. And the beer menu is replete with a sizable selection from the big little boys in addition to Italy and Japan, two countries making inroads into the world of microbreweries. The place also boasts Norway’s #1 brewer in 2014 (determined by the brewer who could throw a sack of barley the farthest).
NBS also has quickly earned a good reputation for its eats and it’s hard to find more pleasant surroundings to enjoy a meal in.
If I had a bottomless wallet I would hang out here until they had to carry me out, which they inevitably would have to do.
