    If you're near Stockholm, the obvious answer is Akkurat.

    If you want to try a lot of Swedish micros, Ardbeg Embassy (in Old Town Stockholm) has 24 of them on tap, which is sort of a rarity. They also have a really cool menu, lots of game meat dishes.

    The Wallingatan Monk's Cafe location has a pretty good selection and is close to the station entrance/exit for the Arlanda Express. The house beers aren't that great, however. There's another Monk's Cafe (Porter House location) not too far away from Akkurat. The house beers were better at that one.

    Some of the Bishops Arms are okay. The Vasagatan location near the Stockholm Central Station has a pretty decent selection.

    Some other reputable bars that I didn't get a chance to visit like Oliver Twist, Presskluben, Belgobaren...

    Save your pennies, though. Scandinavia is brutally expensive.

    Scandinavia has some great beer spots. Too bad you're missing out on Denmark and Finland where there are some great bars.

    Oliver Twist and Glenfidich Warehouse 68 in Stockholm both seemed good for Swedish beers when I visited them.

    I probably will be dropping by Denmark. Looking to find a good spot to pick up some good Cantillon or 3F lambics to carry back home.

    Where in Denmark? Copenhagen? You need to be a little more specific about where you will be besides the fact that you'll simply be in a country.

    Ølbutikken, BarleyWine, and maybe Belgisk Bryg are probably your best bet there.

    I didn't get to go to Olbaren, but I loved Mikkeler Bar when I went to Copenhagen. Lord Nelson was also great.

    Mikkeller Bar, Öl butikken (You'll find some cantillon and 3F here) and Fermentoren are my favorite places in Copenhagen. Should you ever hit scania - Malmö, Helsingborg, Lund feel free to hit me up with a PM and I'll give some more in depth tips. Also up for a trade if you're close by!
