Ølhallen in Tromsø may be the oldest pub in the Arctic but at ninety years it is certainly Tromsø’s oldest.
I am sure they did not start out with 72 beers on tap but 90 years later that long bar with all those beers is an impressive sight. Just watching the barman pour our tasting selection was almost as much fun as drinking them.
We tried a selection of Norwegian beers ranging in strength from mild to very strong. All were wonderfully refreshing though perhaps after having spent a week on the ocean we were a little unbiased!
