Lilla puben is a really small bar in the middle of Kalmar. It's always crowded so the best thing is to call ahead and make reservations.

It's much calmer than many bars in Sweden because there are mostly middle-aged people at this place. Calm and friednly.
As goes for the interia there is brick walls covered with bottles (many hundreds) of different kind of beers - kind of a intersting decorationg idea.

The only thing you can hold against this bar is that it gets crowded pretty fast and the selection isn't as large as in other beer-bars - but what a selection they got: lots of belgian beers and especially lots of Trappist-beers (of course they got the dutch Trappist-beer as well, La Trappe).

The girls working there sure knows beer - you describe what kind of flavours the beer should have and they get it right everytime. They can help you pick the right beer with the food you choose and they always serve the beer in the proper glass. And they are very friendly.

The food is typical bar-food, but here it's a little more expensive than other bars in Kalmar. The price is not a problem since the food tastes really great.

Lilla Puben is associated with Åbro bryggerier and with the microbrewery: Ölands Gårdsbryggerier as well.
And if you are into whisky they got lots of Malt Whisky to choose from.
