This 1814 brewery, a 7-minute walk east of the train station, was transformed in 1969 into a pub/restaurant, offering beer, steaks, and tasty main dishes. It's done a roaring business ever since and is especially popular in winter with skiers. In fact, when the weather's bad and no one can ski or climb in the hills, this is one of the most popular watering holes in town. The joint especially attracts those to whom suds are more vital than the food. The Norwegian fare is rather typical, and salads are the only appetizers. They'll feed you well in generous portions, and most dishes are priced at the lower end of the scale.
Disco Brenneriet (The Distillery) is linked to the restaurant. It's open Friday and Saturday from 11pm to 3am. On Friday there's a NOK70 ($14/£7) cover charge, going up to NOK80 ($16/£8) on Saturday.
