Found this shop while browsing around on BeerFly.

The shop is really small but makes up for its size with very knowledgeable staff and a nice selection of brews. They seem to focus on beers from Belgium, Denmark and USA. If you're looking for danish micros this is _the_ place to visit while in copenhagen. If you ask them they usually also have vintage-versions of special beers available behind the counter. If you have problems deciding what beers to get, tell the owners about your preferences and they
will gladly assist you.

This is a place i will definitely visit again during my next visit to Copenhagen!

Loved this place, a must stop if in Copenhagen. Owner is very nice and personable. Was there for the Blabaer release which was crazy. Usually every year after the release it is available in house for at least a few weeks. Small selection when compared to US craftbeer stores but still probably the best around that area.

I Stopped here a few times while in Copenhagen on business. Morten was very friendly and helpful, great advice on local beers and local bars.

You can drink on site, I chose to order a Blabaer because why not? I was lucky it was that time of year.

Lots of great Danish beers, also some choice Belgian and USA stuff. Good IPAs if you're in town from the USA and feeling homesick. Everything was in coolers too.

Two thumbs up!

rolled in on a Thursday at 1:30 as Morten was getting set up a dealing with a shipment. Despite that he was helpful and took some time to chat. Friendly vide, lots of good Mikkeller, To Olt adn what you'd expect. Had some Cantillion there I grabbed a bottle of Rose De G and must agree with Morten - "It's the best pink beer there is". Just up the street from Mikkeller.

Let me start by saying I'm not generally a review type of person but my experience leaves me compelled.

I had a beyond great vacation in many aspects and my 2 visits here were highlights of the trip. My girlfriend and I came by on a Thursday evening only to find them closed, this turned out to be a good thing. We made our way over the following day, of course this time in the rain, but still very enthusiastic. I browsed the selection and was thrilled to find Blabaer bottles for on-site consumption tucked away in the cooler. I grabbed one and proceeded to the register. Morten, with a smile nearly as big as my own, took the bottle, grabbed us a couple glasses and popped the cork. After sharing the bottle with him and his friend John, more of his friends began to wander in. Little did I know that Friday typically involves him and his friends sharing beer, whiskey, snacks, suggestions, and stories. This turned into a fantastic night! Morten, John, Andrew, and Michael (sorry for butchered Americanized spellings!) and the rest of the gang were all awesome!

We came back a few nights later and shared more beer and snacks, chatted like old friends, and had a generally great time. Morten's friend Michael (again, sorry if the spelling is wrong) was nice enough to take my girlfriend and I out for a couple of beers at another local spot.

5 stars across the board. Selection, pricing (Copenhagen is expensive in general, but his prices were better than others we visited), service and everything else. Normally, when I travel to Europe I don't hit the same city twice, for the sake of variety and experience but I'm already looking forward to my next visit to Copenhagen and visiting with these great people.

This is a really good beer store, and on top of that it's a place where you can actually consume what you want to buy on the premises.

Selection here is really solid, with a surprising amount of varied American craft beers if that's what you want to get your fix. Highlights also include Cantillon from Belgium as well.

Like most things in the country, the place is not cheap, but nothing horribly outrageous either. But it was without question the most diverse and best selection I ever saw. The guy who runs the place is also really nice and talkative. If you want some special beer and that's what you love it's a must stop

What a great place! Had Facebooked Morten earlier from States, and was informed to expect fun and sharing a few beers. Well...all that and more. Started by meeting/greeting with Morten and my wife; then with others visiting/drinking in the store that afternoon. Bought a bottle of Blabaer out of the cooler and shared with everyone in store. On Site only drinking since it wasn't release day. But this broke the ice. Soon all of us (including Morten) were picking and sharing beers. Just an amazing time surrounded by coolers full of amazing beers. It was a wonderful combination of top notch beer store and very nice place to sit and talk with other beer fans from around the world. Maybe it was the lazy Saturday afternoon, but it was just a special stop with people who shared a passion for top quality beer. Can't say enough good things about Morten. We spoke and shared beer like old friends...despite his having had his eye scratched the night before by his baby. Just a great guy. And also a great guide to finding special beers. Left with a bag of great beers and even better memories. This is a must stop.

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!
