Øl Hallen Old pub with history. People in Tromso love Øl hallen. Nice atmosphere, people who work there love their job. I like to go there a early saturday morning before early kick off in Premier League with friends. They also have round trip in the building.

The daily short "tour" of the brewery for 15o nok is highly NOT recommended. It takes about 1 hour, 20 or so watching a movie about the history (this was the good part), then a joke of a taster: 1 small glass of their cheapest beer; not even the IPA or Bayer, the cheapest one you can find in the...

A great selection of local beers including their own brewed beers. Try the sample tray which is a great experience and creates a conversation on different tastes. Service good and beer was even better!

Nice lil tour around this charming brewery. Learned a lot about the history and production of beer. Paid about $20 for the tour which included a good sized sample and full beer at their attached pub. This is the most North brewery in the world. Beer being produced here is pretty good. Wish they sold their beer at my local... More

I brew beer. I like beer. I like Macks beer. I wanted to do a tour of the brewery, it sounded exciting. This was a waste of money. I'm sorry if I sound a bit harsh but I wanted to see a brewery. Not listen to how Macks are making a positive impact on the environment by producing everything in... More

Pretty disappointing really. This is no longer the Mact brewery. The main brewery has been moved 70 km away from Tromso. A very small area of the old brewery has been turned into a micro brewery for the pub next door. I booked and paid for what I thought was going to be a proper brewer y tour but it... More

Strangely very interesting for a small beer tour . If the weathers bad and you need to kill a few hours in the afternoon it's definitely one for the agenda . Great beer too !! Xxxx

As with everything in Tromso, if you're a tourist, expect to pay way above what you would pay at home, but once you've come to terms with that, this is a lovely place to have a drink. We didn't do the tour, but just went in to have a drink in the afternoon. They have a huge selection of beer,... More

A tour of the Mack's brewery needs to be top of your list of things to do in Tromsø. The guy is really engaging, funny and informative on the tour. We learnt a lot about the history of the brewery and had a few tasters of some of the different beers they offered included in the package. Overall a really... More

Loved the ambience and warmth of the people :) Must visit if you visit Tromsø. Make sure you ask the people at the counter for the local brews according to your taste and liking. Also, do not forget to buy souvenirs from their shop :)
