The new owner Morten was a truly stand up guy who takes the time to speak with each customer and get to know them, he really seems to have an undying passion for beer, and is definitely taking this store in the right direction. Would never come to copenhagen without visiting this guy!!

Visited July 6th of 2012.
A basement shop, with not a lot of atmosphere. About a 8 minute walk from the main train station. Clean but just a bunch of fridges lining the walls. Beers are pricey, but they have probably around 60 or so different bottles. IPAs are around 35-40 kroner, and the Danish porter fridge, they started around 75 kroner. They have mostly Danish and Belgian beers. Fridges are sorted by style. The workers there were nice and you can even drink beers there at an additional fee.

As I come from the south of Sweden I always make sure to visit Copenhagen and Ölbutikken when I visit my parents.
I take the ferry to Helsingör and then the train to Copenhagen. It´s just a short walk from the central station.
The atmosphere and esthetics are very clean. But what grips me is the selection!
This is by no comparison number one for beer in Scandinavia!
Good selection of all Danish breweries but also a great selecion in american and central european beers!
And prices are really reasonable in Scandinavian standards, some what cheaper than the Swedish systembolaget.
A must visit if you´re in Copenhagen!

Note: I visited Olbutikken only a couple weeks after the Copenhagen Beer Festival and their selection was basically cleared out. I envision that they'd have a much broader selection any other time of the year.
I walked past the store and missed it on our first pass, so be aware as you look for this small place. Clean, simple, and a little table to have a couple beers while shopping (if you want to pay the drink-in price). The employee poured me a sample saison from a pin, which was great as we walked around.
There is not a bad beer in the place, and I'd guess that virtually every beer on the shelves is at least an A- on BA. You can even get some solid American brews that are tough to get in the U.S. (FFF, Maine, etc.).
Now, as I said, after Copenhagen beer festival, the shelves were pretty sparse, so that's my only complaint. There were great beers, but not anything truly epic/rare. I missed blabaer by about 4 days, sadly, but I still managed to fill up my backpack with some great Mikkeller bres and others.
Prices were fantastic for Scandinavia, and even solid compared to the U.S. (example: Fou Foune was like $17). Definitely a must-visit.

My first ever visit to Copenhagen and having checked into my hotel the very first place I had to find was Ølbutikkem in Oehlenschlægersgade off of Vestebrogade.
This is an amazing beer store, friendly, very helpful and with an immaculately shelved selection of many of the greatest beers from all over the world. Very easy to browse as so tidy!
It is also the only place in the world where you will be able to buy Cantillon's Blåbær (when released) and therefore, this time around my return flight luggage space was reserved for the bottles that Jeppe had kindly put aside for me. Although I still found room for a pristine bottle of Alesmith Speedway Stout to keep the Blåbær company on the flight home.
I hope to retrun to Ølbitikken as often as possible as there were so many other gems I would like to buy in the future. Copenhagen itself is also a wonderful city with Nyhavn, Tivoli, The Mikkeller Bar in Viktoriagade, the Rundetaarn & Kastellet
being my other highlights... along with the canal tours!
A great weekend! Thanks Jeppe and thanks Copenhagen!
