Opened in June 2007.
Modern brewery in the heart of the tourist center Flam. Their beer is also served next door at the restaurarnt on draft should the brewpub be closed.

The infamous viking brewpub - nestled on the cozy Flam harbor, approximately 20 feet from my hotel.
Truly a wonderful exterior, and the interior isnt too far behind with the communal fire pit and cozy couch set up. We arrived immediately as this place opened (8pm) as we were staying in Flam for a night on our way across the Fjord.
The IPA is pretty lovely - everything else I tried was merely average by most standards. They had some interesting barrel aged or rarer bottle releases that were scary to crank the currency conversion on.
the bartender on our visit was great - easily the most meaningful conversations I had with a Norwegian on our trip, mostly about beer.
there were 2 things on the menu for food - pizza and a burger. At first, this kind of bummed me out as we really needed dinner and there was only 1 or 2 other options within miles. However, the pizza was made with creme fraiche instead of red sauce and was topped with local arugula, goat cheese from a nearby farm and local sausage. Quite nice.
very cool spot - and the location was like winning the lottery - not a lot of brewpubs in Norway and this one couldnt have been closer.

Arrived in town by boat and searched this place out immediately after reading about the beers on various Scandinavian beer blogs but never seeing it around in the store, even in Stavanger, Norway. Boy was I not disappointed. The bryggeri has an interesting design to it--circular with tables and viking-themed chairs ringing the outside and a wooden bar with stools around the middle. I wandered up to the tap area and was greeted by a pleasant gentleman who described the beers and offered a sample of each for the price of a .5L serving of one. Having already tried the IPA next door with lunch, I knew I wanted another.
While enjoying the delicious IPA which has a taste very similar to American IPAs, I asked about the availability in Stavanger. Sure enough, I was given information about where I could find these beers (The Cardinal). There is also a gift shop area where you can purchase T-shirts, bottled beers, and beer glasses (I picked one up to remind myself of this fantastic bryggeri).
A first class experience, very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Delightful brewery in a spectacular, beautiful setting by the water.

I arrived in Flam early July just off its namesake railway. What a great surprise to find smack dab in the heart of the tourist center of town a brewpub! Unfortunately it was closed until just about the time that my boat was due to depart. Luckily next door was a resto that had several of their beers available on draft. Got to try some of those to my enormous enjoyment. And as luck would further have it, word got around to the brewmaster, Evan, that I was enjoying the beere and he personally stopped by my table and invited me for a little vilsit to the brewpub. Had a nice chat, a little swag, and a big smile. Maybe we'll be able to have some of their beers in USA someday soon. I hope so! Quaffable brew.
