Beer

2 February 2015 by Hazel

The Danes love their øl, and Copenhagen is fast becoming a craft beer and microbrewery utopia. Dive in!

Mikkeller

One of Copenhagen's biggest and bestest beer menus (but fear not if you don't like beer, the cherry wine and cocktails are great too). @kamilklos is drinking in Vesterbro here, but there's also a Mikkeller in Nørrebro - both equally as hygge!

Shoppen

The Barking Dog boys went and opened a shop, or rather, ‘the shop’. It’s called ‘Shoppen’, is tucked away on Ahornsgade just off Guldbergsgade, and sells a zillion different liquors, beer, wine and even cider, many of them local, or at least very interesting! Door-selfie photo by @thehazertazer.

Wascator

That’s one hell of an ØL! Absolutely digging the biro-esque branding of Wascator’s signature beer (it tastes good too). Photo by @mybuemann.

Orsted Ølbar

Ørsted Ølbar is always full of locals, it’s chilled and laid back and you'll find everything from Danish microbrews to Italian sour ales. They also have their own house brew, Beerdog, from local microbrewery Amager Bryghus. Thanks to @danvig for the photo!

ØL

This place, quite simply called 'ØL' pulls a fun crowd of beer drinkers spilling out onto Elmegade. They've got a great beer selection, and they're always changing what's on tap, so it's a perfect place to try new beers out! Photo by @gaiapadovan.

Warpigs

Taphouse, as you might expect from the name, is a house full of taps - more than 60 of them. Flowing from said taps is craft beer from microbreweries in Denmark and around the world, plus a cider. This selection might seem daunting, so make sure to ask for a recommendation and a taster if you can’t choose! Photo by @shikataganai.

Søernes Ølbar

Kick back with a beer overlooking Søerne like @haruliak. Søernes Ølbar is one of the cosiest in town, with a changing selection of great local brews on tap and bottled up.

Fermentoren

Fermentoren's yard on Sonder Boulevard comes alive in the summer, as the happy beer drinkers kick back along the wooden tables and benches. They offer a diverse selection of beer, an ever-changing menu, with a lot of IPAs, and pilsners for the less-beer-nerdy. Photo in the sun by @emgud.

BRUS

33 taps, from which flow both beer and cocktails à la @toolbeer, and a huge open space in which to nibble, dance, and while your evenings away. Photo by @kenjju.

Nørrebro Bryghus

Perfect Nørrebro hangout for beer geeks, and they do a great cider if beer's not your thing. Accompanied by a hearty meal, you can't go wrong! Photo by @marce_alonso.

Amager Bryghus

Amager Bryghus's iconically named bottles are hard to beat. Whether it's Pride, Wrath or Gluttony you opt for, you're in for a great beer! Thanks to @majaek for the beautiful photo.

Ølsnedkeren

An eclectic mix, huge glasses, and a cosy atmosphere both upstairs and downstairs, Ølsnedkeren is Griffenfeldsgade's best beer for sure. Photo by @keljukoo.

Beer is Art. Art is also Art. Need we say more? Photo by @cphpassions.

Flying Couch

@petermarshall1 went for a beer amongst the shiny steel of @flying_couch_brewing. It's not usually open for drinks as such, but worth visiting if you want to explore the brewery, and buy a lot of #beer to take home with you!
