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 :).

This place is basically beer heaven. After traveling to many breweries and bars, this is the place to go. Huge bottle list with many amazing vintage offerings. The vintage stuff is cheap compared to the regular stuff. Lots of lambic! Great staff! Very friendly and helpful!

Akkurat is, to me, the best beer bar in the world.

Vibe is basically a pub, laid back and quite British.

The quality of the beer is unmatched, these guys now how to handle the beer, especially their casks. They also make sure to have good variety on the board, so everyone can find something they like.

Service is excellent, but Swedish. Not that much chit chat, but everyone knows the stuff, and are helpful.

Now, for the thing that makes Akkurat stand alone, the selection. The tap selection is very good, around 20 taps with most styles rotating. They always have something from Cantillon on tap, which is special in itself. But if you're a beer nerd, and especially if you enjoy sours, ask for the Cuvee list. Akkurat and Cantillon have a special relationship, and it shows in this book. Pretty much eveything Cantillon makes, these guys have and often different vintages. Cantillon have also brewed a few beers for Akkurat, and many of them are available as well. Besides Cantillon, they have a huge number of beers, from Belgian to American, at different ages. You can spend an infinite amount of time and money here, and still not try it all. So, if youre into sour beer, and happen to be in Stockholm, it would be criminal to miss Akkurat. They also make a really good burger!

This is the best beer bar in the world with it's vintage bottle menu alone. Excellent selection of draught beer and the worlds greatest selection of lambics. The bottle and draft list is extensive and prices are fair for pretty much anything and that includes the ultra-rare bottles. Food is excellent. Akkurat has a true passion for the beer and all alcohol they serve!

Arrived 5 p.m. on a Sunday only to find out that it wouldn't open until 6 p.m. Friendly staff but no luck getting in. A live band was practicing, but wouldn't go on until 9 p.m.

Very informal with covered outdoor seating. Otherwise, it seems like a regular bar, albeit one with an incredible beer list. They are understandably proud of their extensive foreign, American brews. I am here for the Scandanavian selections, which is still extensive.

The service is friendly and informal. Like everywhere else in Sweden, everyone seems quite comfortable with English.

The food was very good. Their specialty seems to mussels. My daughter and I had two different kinds--both were excellent. My wife had a homemade sausage dish for her dinner, which was also very well done.

Seems to be a local hangout. We didn't hear any English as a first language. We did note one family switching to English for their order, but the rest seemed to be Swedish.
