Lervig's best

My favourite beer from Lervig brewery is Rye IPA. This is one of the best Norwegian beers at the moment, and lately I have been drinking it frequently both from bottle and from tap.

Recently, Henrik in Bergen expanded its selection of draught beers. There are now more than 40 taps at the bar, and this means that Henrik probably has the best offer of draught beers in Norway. It is difficult to choose what to drink at Henrik, but during the visit I had this week I chose the Rye IPA from Lervig.

In the glass the Rye IPA was cloudy with a brownish colour. It had some carbonation and a medium sized head. The beer had a hoppy nose with loads of grapefruit. In the mouth grapefruit ruled with some grass. The finish was bitter and fruity with an assertive touch of citrus. A lovely beer!


  1. I really need to visit Henriks. How is the pricelevel, compared to e.g. Cardinal and Naboen?

  2. Prisnivået på Henrik ligger rundt 80 kroner for en 0,35 liter med øl fra bryggerier som Nøgne Ø og Lervig. Jeg betalte omtrent det samme på Cardinal for noen måneder siden.
