 This new in 2014 Carlsberg-led microbrewery is a "co-production" with New York City's Brooklyn Brewery, which predictably sends tinglings up the loins of the local hipster community. It's housed just off Södermalm in the former Luma lightbulb factory (1930), an early example of Swedish functionalism. The traditional Swedish menu is tailored to go with beer, so don't insult your hosts by asking to see the wine list. Not that they have one anyway. Nor does the establishment have much of a design vision (calling this bar/restaurant sparsely decorated is an understatement). We can't give high praise to the food, but those who come here rightly rave about the ale-heavy in-house beer, which is, after all, the main attraction. If you're a hard-core microbrewery nut, take one of the free tours on Saturdays and Sundays between 1:30 and 4pm.
