Beware Website states open and they were closed
May 2019 • Couples
Took a bus and a taxi from Kristisnsand per their website they were “open” from 8-4. Arrived and they would not let us in. Beware website is incorrect. Very frustrated to say the least.

Interresting visit to the world top rated brewery pioneering a new generation of premium beers and ales.
Dec 2015 • Friends
Nøgne Ø (local name for Naked Island) started making top quality beers and ales and won several top international prices for their brews. They have made a good visiting place, where by arangement you may have a tasting tour in the brewery tasting a selection of ales while seeing the brewing process.

Best brewery in Norway hands down
May 2016
While in Kristiansand we decided to make the pilgrimage to Nøgne Ø and had an amazing tour with Cathy! Despite being overwhelmed by a bus of visitors, she took the time to give us a personalized tour and encouraged our questions! At each stop on the tour generous "samples" of the brewery's astonishing array of beers (and sake!!) were provided along with a perfectly paired snack! This is the brewery that pioneered the craft beer game in Norway and it is an amazing experience to see the operation first hand. They are in the process of expanding the facilities so the experience figures to get even better in the near future! They live up to their slogan of being uncompromising!

Outstanding tour & tastings - including sake!
Aug 2015 • Couples
My wife & I visited as part of a North Atlantic cruise on 8/9. Since I'm a big fan of craft beers, I was looking forward to tasting "Norway's finest beer." I was not disappointed, & even my wife - not a beer drinker - enjoyed the experience.

Our tour guide was the founder's wife, & she was outstanding: enthusiastic, knowledgeable, warm, friendly, charming. Since it was Saturday, the small micro-brewery wasn't working, but we still toured the facility after a very informative tasting of different beers.

To our surprise, we learned that the brewery had started to make sake, which we also sampled. I don't know enough about sake to be able to make comparisons, but if it's as good as the beer they'll do well.

On the tour we tasted different malts & hops, which helped us understand the differences in the character of the beers. Great fun!

Norway's finest beer. Informative tour!
Jun 2013 • Family
*Nøgne Ø - The Uncompromising Brewery*

Norway's finest beer without doubt. The brewery name, Nøgne Ø, is old Danish for "Naked Isle".
As of this date Nøgne Ø has six beers in top 10, and twelve inside top 20 beers in Norway on the american site RateBeer. Nøgne Ø has also won a lot of awards for their quality beer.
India Pale Ale is my favourite at this time.

Touring the brewery was fun and informative. The guide was knowledgeable, and we got to try various kind of beers, taste the malts used to brew the beers combined with some tasty snacks.
We experienced the whole brewing process from start to finish.

Highly recommended tour in Grimstad!
