Oliver Twist can be found close to subway station Slussen in Stockholm. It's on a parallell street to the big pub street Götgatan in the southern parts of the city center.

Oliver Twist, or OT for short, is one of the better beer places in Stockholm, specially for finding some (for Sweden) rare Brittish or American beers.
The place is a bit pricy, but the selection makes it worth it.
Free hot dogs is nice, look by the door early before they run out.

Has a tendence to get very crowded.

Usually runs some sort of special beer festival or something like it.

I went there in June of this year and had a great time. They had a Hip Hops On Tour "event" taking place, consisting of about 20 different bottled American micros, all of which were hoppy. These were in addition to their normal selection of American micros they have. The Hip Hops On Tour included beers from Brookly East IPA (very good beer), Avery, Lost Coast, North Coast, Bell's, Two Brothers, Three Floyd's, Victory, Tuppers, Rogue and others I didn't write down.

The atmosphere was somewhere in between an English and an American pub, probably more on the American side. Good music, free hot dogs during happy hour (think it started at 4 or 5P), and the menu looked good as well. We didn't eat there, but no specific reason for not doing so. The staff was decent, but not great. They all spoke English with us and were decent overall. Not great, not poor. Lots of beers on tap, including several Swedish micros, some English real ales, Sam Adams, and many other choices. Definitely worth stopping at.

This was the first "quality" bar i went to, quite some time ago, and i was impressed even then.

Generally its just a tiny bar, in a quite small room with a great selection of beers. They have recieved the CAMRA award several times i think, this means that they constantly serve "real beer" and up to date they've had like 800 different beers.

A lot of swedish beer, a good selection of traditional "top notch" beers with a special belgian section on the list.

Quite recently theyve imported a lot of american micros which is extremely reare to get your hands on otherwise.

Simply put, just a very good bar with great selection.
