Schouskjelleren Mikrobryggeri is one of Oslo's newest brewpubs. It is placed where the former Schous brewery once was based in the Grünerløkka neighbourhood.
The pub feels more like a beer hall. At this visit four beers from the in-house brewery were available. In addition to these, there were nine draught beers from other breweries and a large selection of bottled beers.
I chose one of Schoukjelleren's own beers, and I ended up with Schoukjelleren Sommer-Kölsch. This was a yellowish beer with a small head and nearly no carbonation. In the nose I felt nearly nothing except for a touch of tutti frutti bubble gum. In the mouth I felt fruit, sweetness and some yeast. Tastewise this was a lovely beer.
My second visit to Schouskjelleren Mikrobryggeri was short, but I could take home a souvenir. Schouskjelleren Mikrobryggeri's original beer glasses were available at the cheap price of 15 NOK (nearly 2 EUR). That is a great idea, as I believe this is a way to counter beer glass theft from pubs. In addition to this the pub visit will live on for a tourist. You will remember both the pub and the time spent there afterwards.
