This bar has an excellent rotating selection of beers on tap as well as many different varieties in the bottle. There is a blackboard with all currently available beers, their origins, ABV, style, etc. posted within the bar.

The ambience is warm and inviting. The beer is served with the correct glassware and every attention to detail. The serving staff is warm and friendly.

Excellent place to sample new beers. I make a point of visiting it every time I am in Stockholm, which is fairly often.

If you´re into beer and you´re in Stockholm you have to go to Akkurat.
Serving good craft beer for over 15 years.
Local Swedish craft, cask real ale, american craft, belgian craft, german craft and always lambics from Cantillon on tap! Also a big bottle selection and vintage beers.
They also serve good food in different styles, moules frites, homemade bratwurst and swedish food. It can be really crowded during weekends so go there early.

I go to Stockholm (the home of DICE and Battlefield, shameless plug) about 3-4 times a year and am lucky enough to stay near Akkurat. The selection is outstanding and their range of Cantillon's is amazing. Was lucky enough to sample Soleil de Minuit when I was there in August. If you are in Stockholm this is a must.

Great selection of Belgian ales and the food is really good. But like all places in Stockholm it is going to cost you. I go here about once a month for a few pints and its always worth it, but I only have one or two then head on up to Oliver twist or down to Monks. Good thing about Stockholm is that you can walk or take the Underground everywhere and dont have to drive!
They have an awesome selection of the booming craft beer scene featuring many small Swedish micro brews. They also have a weekly Cantillion beer! I LOVE it!

Visited on May 23, 2012 while in Stockholm for the day (during a cruise around the Baltic):

Visited the establishment at around 2pm and considering that it was a warm sunny day all of the patrons were on the porch, which is where we ultimately ended up, so I got a limited view/vibe of the interior of the place. At that point in the day, there may have been only a few other patrons, maybe a half dozen.

We were quickly greeted upon entering and provided the beer menu. The waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and beer in general and even provided some sample to my wife so that she could figure out what she wanted. The menu was extensive and included US beers as well. The tap selection was not overly extensive, but still good and I think that we settled on a Bedaro Bitter and Tjockhult Tjinook, which if I recall is specially brewed for the bar. Both beers were served in the appropriate glassware and at the right temperature and with a 2-3 finger head.

On my way out, strolled through the interior of the bar, with no people, it looked like a typical bar, nothing especially memorable about it. Overall, we had a good experience and if ever back in that part of the world, we would probably stop in for another pint or two or three.

First off, thanks to my fellow BA's for stearing me in the direction of this place on my firs(and sadly short) trip to Stockholm. Secondly, another huge thanks to the other 7 in my crew that split the cab fare from our hotel into the city!

It was two hours before closing, and the weather was awful and the bar was crowded. Everything else was flawless! Service was very prompt at the bar even without speaking a drop of Swedish and asking questions about the extensive offerings. Had a few local pints before getting to the real reason I visited Akkurat...the cellar. First offering was no longer in stock, but quickly "settled" on a 2002 Cantillon Lou Peppe Framboise. Pricey I suppose if you just looked at the amount, but when you consider how long theyve properly aged it and how damned Nirvanesque that nectar was, I would have gladly dropped another chunk for another bottle. Alas, closing time, maybe I was lucky.

Draft selection is broad and great, though didnt hit any other comparable bars so cant compare to others. Cellar and normal bottle selection were overwhelming in a great way. Hell they even had
Konjaks! Stormaktsporter available!

If you go to Stockholm, go here...alot...till you run out of money :).

Visited Akkurat while in Sweden for the Stockholm Beer & Whiskey Fest. The first evening we stopped in it was incredibly packed, and could not find a table or a place to stand. Returned the next night and got there before it opened. There was a line of people waiting to get in, but we were able to get a decent table. The beer selection is incredible, especially if you're into vintage lambics, which I am not. And you could drop a ton of money because they're not cheap. I tried a Swedish IPA in a bottle which was decent, but switched to the Harviestoun Natural Blonde that was on cask which was awesome. The burger I had was one of the best ever. They had a great local band playing, but the place was incredibly packed because of it. Our waitress was great considering how many people she had to serve. This place reminded me a lot of the Kulminator in Antwerp because of their incredible cellar offerings. Just way too crowded to be all that enjoyable for me.

In short: Akkurat is one of the world's true great beer bars and is worth a trip to Stockholm on its own.

Akkurat is lockated just south of Gamla Stan, the main touristy island in Stockholm. Not far out of the way and well worth visiting. It's a large bar with a large patio. Good music, and a wide range of clientele. With the beer list, it's amazing it's not completely filled with beer geeks 24 hours/day, but I like the mix of people there.

Every beer we had was served perfectly. The casks were vented correctly and at the right temp. Beers served in correct glassware, lambic baskets, etc. It's just done right.

The bartenders were both insanely knowledgeable. I've been to a number of beer bars where the bartenders are clueless. But these guys were beer geeks themselves and knew everything about the list, could tell you stories about the brewers, the history of the bottles, etc. Just awesome.

But the selection is why you go to Akkurat. You name a beer, they have it. Even ignoring the European beers, their beer list would be top notch in the U.S. Vintage stuff all over the place, but, that's not why you go...Looking at the cuvee list you see whales, whales whales. Beers that you cannot try anywhere else in the world. You can see it on the website, but it's that much more impressive when you're at the bar looking at the list. They've got vintage lambics all over the place, lambics made especially for them, Narke beers, etc. Just awesome. We ended up with the Cognac Stormaktsporter, Cantillon Loerik, and a few drafts. If we hadn't been on a budget, I would've spent days at Akkurat drinking through the list. Beer in Sweden is expensive, but when you're buying rare beers like this at Akkurat, you could easily walk out of there with a $500-$1000 tab in a night, so just be careful. If you want to geek out, though, this is the place to go.

Best bar I've ever been to. Best beer selection I've ever seen, especially of Belgian lambics. Moules frites are great and burger is good. Atmosphere is relaxed and nice. Sadly, I haven't been here in about 3 years, but I'll always love this as the bar in which I got introduced to beer! Akkurat is even very reasonably priced by Stockholm standards!

(Warning: if you're American, Stockholm bar pricing standards may cause acute, lasting shock and distress. Swedes go to Copenhagen or onto the ferry to Helsinki to drink for a reason, and that reason isn't that there's a lack of cool bars in Stockholm.)
