Stopped here while visiting Copenhagen in September 2016. This was a "must stop" for me as they not only served one of my favorite all-time beers, they had it on tap: Schlenkerla Marzen Rauchbier. (According to Jay, the two pub owners spent some time in Bamberg and grew a fondness to the rauchbiers that are brewed there).

It's an intimate pub with the entrance set back a little from the street (and down a few steps) with a large open area of picnic style tables out front. We arrived shortly after they opened on a Thursday afternoon and the place was rocking with friendly and talkative beer loving patrons within an hour. This is clearly a favorite local hang out.

Their selection on tap was impressive -a well balanced offering of over 20 beers ranging from light to dark, lagers, ales, sours, ciders, stouts, and smoke beer.

Oh yeah - the John Goodman/ Big Lebowski poster and movie references around the bar are priceless.

if you get the chance you should definitely stop in here for a beer or two or three or ....

Everything about this place was right, the decor, clientele, barstaff and particularly the beer. They are heavily involved with Ølkollektivet, a beer collective comprising small breweries such as Gamma, Bad Seed and Dry and Bitter. This place should be on any beer lovers itinerary. 3 locals recommended this place on my stay, one being a bar man from another quality venue. Enough said.

Nice smallish bar with around 20 taps and a good number of bottles to select from. Visited on a Saturday evening and the place was packed. Does have decent seating outside. Seemed to be more locals than tourists. Typical Copenhagen prices. A must stop.

This was probably one of the best pubs we went to when in Copenhagen. Went with my wife and Daughter and sat out front on benches and had a few beers. I thought the selection was pretty good, had a lot of dark on tap and had a very knowledgeable bartender. Would definitely go back here. FYI they are big fans of the Big Lebowski

Our last night in Copenhagen was due in a hotel that turned out to be located, rather felicitously, near Mikkeller Bar and Fermentoren. Great area, hipster ma non troppo.
Fermentoren is a low-key spot in a cave-like space; cozy and dimly-lit when we visited in early November. Small but not crowded on this Wednesday night. We repaired there before our dinner at Restaurant Relais.

The tap list leaned, as usual in Scandinavia, towards brews from around the northern lands. They were out of three or four taps, sadly, but I can’t complain about De Molen Rasputin (pardon the trademark infringement) and the hoppy Dawn to Dusk DIPA from the local Ghost Brewing the wife had. We also tried Beer Here Dark Hops, and beyond that- they have 20 taps overall, including stuff from Mikkeller, Dark Horse, Crooked Moon, Ugly Duck, Girardin Gueuze, Schlenkerla… Pretty nifty.

We paid 180 DKK for two large Dawn to Dusk, one small De Molen and one small Beer Here. For Denmark/Scandinavia, it ain’t bad. Will gladly return next time I’m in Kobenhavn.

All ~20 beers on tap are top-class, many of them Danish. I love stouts, porters, and rauchbier, and this may be the only place in Copenhagen where I've found more than one dark beer, let alone several of the others! They offer small glasses for 30kr and pints for 50kr. Also a great place for a football match
