Once it was a one of Norway's better record store with a terrific vinyl selection. Now Apollon is also a pub. With several draught beers on tap, it is an interesting addition to the beer scene of Bergen.
Most beers available are pale lagers, but Apollon also offers other
beers including selections from Haandbryggeriet. At my recent visit
Norwegian Wood was available, and I chose to check out this copper
coloured smoked beer.
Norwegian Wood had a medium sized head and no carbonation. In the nose I
felt burnt bacon and malts. The beer tasted of smoke, wood and some
smoked mackerel with a touch of sweetness. It was nice, but I felt that
one glass was enough.
Apollon is a fine attraction. It is an great place for music lovers
and a good place for beer lovers. If you like beer and music, Apollon should be close to heaven.
