3 Små Rum in Gothenburg

One of my favorite beer pubs is 3 Små Rum, Swedish for 3 Small Rooms, located on Kristinelundsgatan 4 in Gothenburg, Sweden.

This small and quiet pub, run by Reza Ganon, takes pride in its good beer selection. Genuine beer interest is met with a warm and friendly service, while beer posing will get you nowhere. If Reza deems a beer not ready for consumption he will refuse to sell it to you and he will much rather see a guest spend an hour enjoying a good beer than sell him a number of expensive beers in a short time.

The beer selection may not be the biggest in the world, but everything on tap or bottle is top notch. There is usually a handful of local Swedish craft beers on tap, from the likes of Närke, Dugges, Oppigårds and Oceanbryggeriet, along with the odd Danish or American beer - such as Mikkeller, Beer Here and Great Divide. On bottle you can find just about whatever you fancy from Belgium - from Trappists and Tripels to Lambics and Sour Red Ales. But also great Scandinavian micros such as Närke, Mikkeller and Nøgne Ø.

3 Små Rum is the only pub I've been to with its own icon shrine, containing a copy of the painting of the Duchesse de Bourgogne - made famous by the beer of the same name from Brouwerij Verhaeghe - with a burning candle in front of it. It makes any serious beer drinker contemplate the bigger questions in life.

3 Små Rum - a small place for enjoying big and bold beers.
