Best selection of beers I've ever seen in Europe, esp ales and taps (20+). Service was prompt, very helpful and funny, as were the almost omniscient beer geeks at the bar!

The terrace was a bit small and thus crowded in summer but there's a separate tap there. I guess there's just not more space on the pavement.

Given higher wages/prices in Sweden than in continental Europe, the prices were OK, comparable to almost any other bar in Stockholm. That's why we didn't try the food there; we were a bit short on funds.

What a knockout beer bar! For starters it was an unexpected find in Stockholm. I was told before traveling that Stockholm and Sweden for that matter weren't really on the beer map. Put down the lousy travel guides- Stockholm has some great beer selections. Maybe this isn't surprising, but I found Brooklyn IPA at the traditional meatball restaurant Pelikan. I had something else, being in Europe and all.

The atmosphere was great. Traditional bar atmosphere that looked like it could have been really dirty, but like the rest of Stockholm was actually really, really clean. Beer bottles lined a shelf that rested above the bar- most of them were really unique.

The selection was outstanding. I didn't count droughts, but there may have been up to 20...? Cantillion was on, and I tried Bink Bruin from Brouwerij Kerkom- on drought. It was really amazing and served in proper glassware. My second beer was a Swedish russian imperial. Also outstanding. They had a bunch of seasonals including stuff from the U.S. like Geary's.

Food was slammin. We had mussels and frites. The mussels sauce was I think a wit- and definitely some of the best I've had.

The value was ok, though the dollar was taking a turn for the worst, so nothing in Europe was a real value.

Visited twice on my Stockholm tour and I can truly say, Akkurat's one of the best beer bars in the world. In terms of selection, if you're looking for lambic, they have the best list in the world, period. I don't know how or why, but they have a special relation with both Cantillon and 3 Fonteinen and have special beers from both breweries. They also have a lot of other Belgian ales, including many vintages. As for Swedish beers, they have both Imperial Stouts from Narke, enough said. I was also impressed with their selection of American beers, including many vintages. The staff treated me kindly and the food I did have was quite good. Sunday night is band night and it was cool. I came back on my final night and had an incredible night of fine ales and really treated myself. Akkurat is a very special bar.

Went there on a Monday night. Excellent and relaxed place, mostly male guests. Having said that the crowd was mixed in terms of professional background and age. A fair amount of suits and tie though. The range of beer was excellent although I had expected some more tap variety but the selection was still far better than any bar I have ever visted in Sweden except for perhaps Vildanden in Lund. Entering the premises I immediately ordered a sour Cantillon on tap. I guess you have to be a true beer fan to appreciate something like that. My ignorant Carlsberg drinking friend tasted it and rolled his eyes in amazement: "Is this a beer?" I followed up with an Inveralmond Export Ale- couldn't help mixing styles as I had only a day in Stockholm- but it turned out to be pretty skunky. Stuffed myself with fries and mayo and went on with another Belgo. All and all Akkurat offers most of the things a beer aficionado requires for a successful visit.

Belgo bar with a selection of brittish and belgo beers as well as lambic. Very knowledgeable staff, and very knowledgable crowd. If the staff can't help you with the information you ask for, it's not unlikely that one of the regulars can give you an entire lecture.

Very good food. Not unexpensive, but excellent. Good service indoors, not as good outdoors.

Try the truffels with kriek. Exceptional!

Cellar with selection of vintage beers (not tried by me). For a reasonable price Akkurat hold different kinds of tastings (beer, whiskey).

Akkurat can be found close to subway station Slussen in Stockholm. Part of the "Golden Triangle" with Akkurat, Oliver Twist and Svejk.

The place has a very large selection of beer and whisky.

The staff is usually very knowledgeable and if the place isn't crowded they're happy to answer any questions and talk about beer. Watch out for the lunch staff though, since it happens they know very little of beer.

Might be difficult to find seating unless you book ahead.

Specializing in Lambic type beers, including some brewed by Cantillon brewery specially for Akkurat.

Akkurat Belgo Bar has to be one of my favorite beer bars I've ever visited. My wife and I really enjoyed the atmospherei inside as well as the outdoor seating. The service was excellent at the bar, not so much outside. We were served by Richard at the bar, who happens to be one of the most knowledgable about beers from anywhere in the world. His service and conversation definitely enhanced our visit.

While we were there, they had a Lambic Festival taking place and it was definitely a Lambic Festival. There were at least ten lambics on tap (one or two on handpull) and even more in bottles. A great selection of beers other than lamics, too. I would venture to say they covered a majority, if not all of the Swedish micros.

In addition to the beer selection, they also have an amazing selection of whiskey and tequila.

The food was very good as well and prepared very true to their Belgian roots.

I think about this place a lot and would love to go back there tomorrow. Don't miss it while you're in town.

When a bartender at a Stockholm brewpub recommended this place, little did I know that I was about to visit one of the best beer bars in the world.

The bar is located just south of Gamla Stan (the old city). The bar looks nice and has plenty of seating. The service was very good, but the bartenders were pretty busy. The prices were reasonable for Sweden, which is an expensive country to drink in.

On to the unboring beer list. If you love Belgian ales, don't miss this place. The selection was amazing. Highlights included full Belgian Trappist lineups, several dozen Lambics, and about 20 Belgian taps with no Stella or Hoegaarden in sight. About half of the list was privately imported so you won't find these beers anywhere else in Sweden. They had cask ale also but I didn't even check the lineup. I even saw some American micros such as Anchor Old Foghorn.

My brother and I only had time for a few beers. We choose Rodenbach Grand Cru, Rochefort 10, and Delirium Nocturnum. All were excellent and served in proper brewery glassware.

Right before we had to leave we found out they have a separate vintage beer list!!! I didn't even get a chance to look at it, but I remember hearing about aged Rodenbach Grand Cru and vintage Brooklyn Monster. Akkurat even allows private parties to hold tastings in the beer cellar. These guys also host local beer festivals.

This bar goes so far beyond anything I've seen in Sweden. Next time I won't make the mistake of arriving 90 minutes before close on my last night in Stockholm. Akkurat earns a place among the very best beer bars in the entire world.

On my trip in Stockholm this was my first stop. Went on Saturday afternoon totally dead, I was told this was because the soccer games were on and it was nice out. This was good because it provided me some ample time to talk to the staff, but a downside because there are no tvs to watch the soccer games. Atmosphere in general is pretty boring, typical euro bar, wood everything, beer memo on the wall but nothing special. There are 2 menus one for the day and the vintage or cellar menu. The cellar menu is what I want to right away. I was awed with verticals of trappist beers, westy 6, and unreal lambics such as cantillon loerik, millenium gueze & jj blauw. The selection was great, quality best in the world hands down...The staff is good very knowledgable and helpful. It was slow so the staff even took me to the cellar which was awesome. 5 floors down, I saw one of 3 cellars filled to the brim with unreal beers. Interestingly they advocate laying all lambics on there side. The price is high but this cellar.

This is a true must see, almost a reason to go to Stockholm.
