Stopped in here a few times during a recent stay in Copenhagen.

Atmosphere is cozy - you walk down stairs to enter the pub and there are a few tables on the right and the bar on the left. If you follow the bar around to the left there's additional seating around the back. The chalkboard above the bar highlights the available beers and there are a few tables available outside.

Quality is very good. The glassware selection is somewhat limited but they're all rinsed before serving and are at a good temperature with proper amounts of head.

Service is very good. The bartenders can answer any question about the beer you may have and then answer another question you didn't even know you had. Additionally they're absurdly friendly and never make you wait to place another order.

Selection is simply amazing. Not only can you find one-off beers from Mikkeller among the ten dedicated taps but you'll find five other world-class beers on-tap and countless others available in bottles.

Value is good, especially considering it's in Scandanavia. Small pours run about $4-5 and larger ones from $5-7.

Overall this was hands down my favorite place in a city of full of world-class pubs. Well worth a stop if you're in the area.

Pretty much identical to the Mikkeller and Friends bar. Way too expensive. I get that it's Denmark, but still. There are far better options in the city. Super small pours. Lots of Mikkeller beers on tap. Just wasn't my thing.

Visit: Mar/2016

One of the best beer bars to go: it's a small basement, and it gets crowded, so arrive early if you plan to sit down. Also, it's VERY loud, with music playing (good selection, though) and bad accoustics, I guess. But all the rest, just amazing: they have a vast selection of beers on tap (20, mostly Mikkeller, but some nice alternatives), for a fair price. The staff is very nice and talkative (as far as danish people go) and very knowledgeable. They also have a huge selection of bottles, from all around, although most are on the expensive side. Remarkable evening.

I try to come here every time I am in Copenhagen. It is small and cozy, the service is prompt/efficient but could cheer up a little, but they stand out by far in their beer selections. 20 great craft beer selections. I had some awesome samples from their spontan.... series here. The location is perfect. Downtown Copenhagen not far from the central station (Copenhagen H) and Tivoli. Therefore it is very easy to get here and back from almost anywhere including the airport.

Excellent bar with a decent location. 20 beers on tap and a huge bottle list. Was near my hotel so stopped in a few times. Service was great every time. At one visit every stool at the bar had an American sitting. Prices in line with everyone else. Does get very busy in the evening. A must visit.

March 2015. Pleasantly surprised to see open at 1 pm! Nearly empty and I grbbed seat at cool but small bar. Beatleguese for a start. Solid. Friendly bartemder. Nice list on tap and bottle list was mind blowing, including Fou Foune. Got a gratis Coffee IPA. Highly recommended.

What a day! Only a couple of hours left in Kobenhavn and I am trying to hit every major spot in town before we leave… Fermentoren before dinner, then a tasting menu at Relais and then back to the hotel. The wife and I make it back to the hotel and hurry to Mikkeller before they close, walking briskly through desolate streets filled with sex shops and questionable prostitutes.

Lucky me we make it right it at last call, and we are there during a “Black Night” event where every beer on tap was something exceptional, rare and barrel-aged. Call me lucky for once and again!

The list was seriously deadly impressive. They had Parabola, Dark Lord Vanilla, Cigar City Marshall Zhukov Rum Barrel, Mikkeller Vanilla Shake Bourbon, Mikkeller Black Grand Marnier Barrel, Texas Ranger Eagle Rare and more. They have 20 taps here, and on this dark night they were all taken by black-as-fuck brews. Fuck Yeah!

I ordered four of them and got two extra tastings to boot. The bartender was friendly and accommodating to my ordering so many beers at closing time (1 am for real?).
Prices were, as you can imagine, outrageous. I think I may have paid twenty-five bucks for that Dark Lord Vanilla, but hey. No regrets.

The only downside of this Mikkeller is the small size of the place and how crowded it can get. I liked Mikkeller & Friends better but would and will certainly return here when I’m back in Denmark.
