The Bank Brewery and Eatery was founded in October 2018 based on an idea that was conceived late one night at a Christmas party a year earlier.
The solid building that Sell Sparebank put up in 1984, when cash still prevailed and the bank was a place you visited with hat in hand, had been unused for a while.
We thought that the building must be an excellent starting point for a pleasant meeting place for both locals and visitors .
The seed was sown and in February 2018 we bought the building.
The plans were still very vague, but after some test runs with improvised solutions in the summer of 2018 that were very successful, we decided in the autumn of 2018 to realize the plans to establish Banken Bryggeri & Spiseri AS.
After an extensive renovation, we opened our doors on July 5, 2019.
On June 1, 2022, we took over Weistad Overnatting, which is located next door to the Bank. Here we have a cozy camping yard with 7 cabins and some space for tents and motorhomes.
The goal is to offer a holistic experience in Heidal, with a good bed to sleep in, good food, good drinks and good experiences, in nature or in some of the many activities around us.
Heidal is very central for many experiences!
Greetings to us at Banken & Weistad!
