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 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.

I went there a saturday night so it was completely crowded, but it was okay anyway. I guess if you go there earlier like 6pm or on weekdays it might be nicer....anyway:
They had a pretty good selection of beer. I only read the blackboards over the bar 'cause I couldn't find a menu and the bartenders were really busy and stressed. I had a blue Chimay and even though the bartender was busy and doing several things at the same time he served me the beer perfectly. It had a perfect hat and everything - the best Chimay I ever had!
I guess i shouldn't go out when everyone else have already crowded the place I'm going to :)
Anyways, this is a place I'm definately gonna go back to. I recommend it! Great service, good selection of beer and a quite reasonable price (even though there are no places in sweden that have reasonable prices - at all!)

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.

Akkurat Belgo Bar is very likely Scandinavias best beer bar, and maybe one of the five best in the world. Hundreds of beers on bottle, some 20 different brands on tap (some of them guest beers), 5 real ale hand pumps with an ever rotating assortment, an cuvée crammed with vintage Belgian beers. And, in addition to that, they offer one of the widest whisky selections in Europe.
The staffs are always competent and willing to give suggestions or tell some facts about the beers or whiskies, even when the bar is crowded.
Belgian-inspired clam dishes dominate the menu, and they are very popular among the patrons. On some rare occasions, the delivery of clams doesnt show up and on those days, I have seen people leave the establishment crying. I dont like shellfish, so I find their meat dishes more interesting (the deer steak with Islay gravy is highly recommended). To be honest, the food was much better for 4-5 years ago, now is still good but not great. If you want to eat, be sure to reserve a table at least in the same afternoon, as the restaurant usually is very crowded.
The price level is surprisingly low for the selection and standard of drinks. Sweden is an expensive place for alcohol and diner-out, but the prices here are on the same level as the run if the mill pub or comparable restaurants in Stockholm: A pint of real ale is SEK 58, a plate of cheese and sausages SEK 78 (September 2004).
The atmosphere can be a little noisy, but it is a jolly noise. The guests are often very mixed; clerks in suits, bikers with beards and leather trousers, beer-nerds who measures the foam with a ruler, senior citizens enjoying a large terrine with clams and the old friends who discuss if Ardbeg 1974 or 1976 is the best choice for half an hour, all in comfort and well-being. Sometimes (mostly Sundays) they arrange concerts in the bar, the styles are mostly blues-rock, boogie-rock or rockabilly.
The premises is not the best, the bar is located in an office building from the late 1980s, and despite the dark wine red walls and ceiling, the collection of beer signs, bottles and miscellaneous odds and ends collected on the walls, the rooms can be somewhat desolate when it is uncrowned.
The establishment is divided into a large bar and a restaurant, the latter open in the evenings. They also got some minor assembly rooms that can be reserved.
Akkurat arranges very interesting of testing and tasting of beer and whisky, ask the personnel or check the web site for details!

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.

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.

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 is an amazing place when it comes to beer, if you are in Stockholm you need to go here.
Big open bar area with tables in a backroom as well. This place was packed the few times I've been but we've managed to get a table after a bit of waiting (with drinks in hand).
Beer menu is crazy, they have lots of stuff listed as being in their cellar and costs are ridiculous for some of the older stuff. I don't think they have everything they say they do though.
I actually had a Stone IPA here as I'd been without a super hoppy IPA for two weeks and needed one! I'm thinking it cost me around $7 for the bottle but it was worth it.
Lots of taps, definitely focusing on European stuff and not on American micros...go for Belgian.
Awesome beer bar in Stockholm that is a cool place to spend a TON of money on beer. Sweden isn't cheap, Stockholm isn't cheap and Akkurat sure as hell ain't cheap.

Great place. It was just over from my hotel which is near the bridge to Gama Stan. Easy to find and get to. Bartenders and guests were friendly. Superior selection of beers including some Swedish, USA, Belgian, and others. Also have real beer (a Swedish cask lager and an English cask ale). Only had fries (good) and mayo (home made). It was late last night, Friday and they were pretty busy, but not nearly as much as some nearby places. Which was great for me. It was a warm evening, but outside seating was full, so I sat inside at the bar. Surprisingly, since there wasn'lt any airconditioning, it was comfortable. Great bottle selection as well. Amazing scotch whisky selection. Not cheap, but not much here is easy on the wallet.
