    Hi all!

    I'll be doing a quick trip across Scandanavia starting in Helsinki to Stockholm to Gotenborg to Oslo and back to Texas. Any advice in each city for "can't miss" breweries?

    appreciate the help.

    Well, going to a brewery in swe/nor/fin is a bit different than going to a brewery in another country since we all have a bit restrict laws about alcohol. Which means in Sweden you cant by any bottles to go that have an abv higher than 3,5%... So if you want to have bottles "to-go" you have to visit systembolaget, they have monopoly on alcohol.

    Stockholm is pretty dry when it comes to breweries/taprooms.

    Nya Carnegiebryggeriet is really the only brewery that's open daily. Stockholm Brewing does Friday night after works and then we have Omnipollos Hatt which is sort of Omnipollos taproom and that's about it. Restaurant chain Monk's also has their own brewery but it's more of a restaurant doing beer than a brewery doing food.

    If you want other recommendations regarding places/things to do in Stockholm or just want to share a beer or two I'm happy to help!

    Helsinki has a few breweries in the city, just to mention some: Bryggeri Helsinki (German-style, not too "crafty" but should have pretty decent food), Stadin Panimo (own beers, modern styles, very good Belgian imports) and Sori Taproom (not a brewery at location but a bar owned by a brewery, fresh taps, often nice imports on tap and bbq-style food). There are also bars that are worthwhile, depending on what you're looking for. Brewdog Bar is what it sounds like, One Pint Pub has pretty much imports from Nordic, Baltic and European breweries, Tommyknocker with US imports and the different chain bars (William K, Kaisla, Ølhus København etc.) that might be interesting from time to time, highly depending on time of visit.

    In Oslo, you'd want to visit the brewpubs Amundsen Bryggeri & Spiseri (in the very centre of the city), Crowbar & Bryggeri, Grünerløkka Brygghus, Schouskjelleren Mikrobryggeri (all within easy walking distance from each other, a short tramride or walk from the city centre), Nydalen Bryggeri og Spiseri (a bus ride, you will get many of the same beers at Amundsen), Oslo Mikrobryggeri (a short tramride from the city centre, the oldest brewpub in town, but not the best).
