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 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.

Amazing beer bar in Stockholm.

Location and vibe is nothing overly special, just a typical looking bar in Sodermalm. But it certainly seems busy, and has a certain buzz about it.

Quality and selection is phenomenal. 20 something taps, and a cellar list like nothing I have ever seen, it's pages long of amazing beers. Some stuff was outrageously priced, but some other things like the wonderful 2000 Mort Subite Gueuze I had was about the same price as some of their draft beer! Amazing. Also, served in proper glassware, and in a lambic basket.

Service was hit and miss. Definitely very pleasant, and not bad at all, just a bit slow. First night we were treated well, and promptly served. The second day we visited, it took a while to be noticed, and even longer to go fetch our beers from the cellar. And even after taking so long to track down my beer, the server came back empty handed when it came to my Mom's choice.

Food was pretty good, but nothing special.

Prices as mentioned, were all over the board. Generally very high (like most everything in Sweden), but some stuff on the vintage list was very reasonably priced.

Come here to be blown away by the cellar, if I was travelling alone, I probably could have spent a lot of time and money here.

Recommended by Bark, and overall notes from others.
This was my kind of place. A real old school bar that also serves as a good restaurant as well. Excellent, very pleasant and very knowledgeable servers. Felt like I could just move in and stay for days. Two bands playing that night. One euro folk pop, the other american roots country. Just fun! Food was great. I had mussels in cider and wife had burger. We're both picky and were both happy.
Ok...now the beer. May have been the best beer list I had ever seen. Had excellent mix of euros and americans with as expected an over the top Belgian portfolio. Decided to have a Cantillon and a Narke...Had a 2011 Lou Pepe Kriek with the mussels and the Akkurat 15th anniversary 2010 Konjaks! Stormaktsporter for dessert...and left wishing I could come back many more times. Brilliant cellar of Belgians with difficult to obtain lambics and a handful of Westys and other remarkable abbeys.
Bad news is I had to leave Stockholm next day; good news...I made it at least once.
Do not skip this place!
