I visited here a few times. The first time was on a Saturday where HornBeer’s recent achievements in national and World Beer Cups were celebrated with live music, discounts and servings by the brewer himself. Good atmosphere if somewhat noisy as the place is both a bottleshop and a bar/café. The bar serves a sampler of four 1 dl glasses for 59 DKK and 6 for 82 DKK. I found the selection to be broader than the average but perhaps somewhat conventional. I.e. more Belgian and English beer than American microbrew. The Danish beer section has a bit of Mikkeller, Djævlebryg and Det Lille Bryggeri but other than that it’s the more conventional Danish microbrewers on offer here (such as Herslev and HornBeer). Also the prices were higher than I would have expected. I was not offered any service or advice during my 45 minutes of perusing the shelves as the staff were generally busy behind the bar serving other people. On my subsequent visits I have found that the selection seems to be shrinking and focusing on the worst beers. Several shelves are now filled with chocolate and whisky instead of beer. Less and less Danish microbrew although still Hornbeer, Det Lille Bryggeri and Djævlebryg. A good portion of Belgian and not so much English beer anymore. I think this place is better thought of as a bar with a small bottleshop appendix and if you’re in town looking for a bottleshop I’d be more inclined to recommend Holte Vinlager Roskilde only a few hundred metres away. I wouldn’t go out of my way to visit.

Danish: hyggeligt gårdmiljø udenfor. Udvalget på fadene har dog en tendens til at variere meget lidt og for meget hankock øl. Som regel alt for lidt IPA både som flaske og fad.

Very cosy bottle shop that has about 600 different beers along with lots of other interesting goods as whisky chocolate and so on. Staff is professional and prices are fair compared to the regular DK market.

Beers, cider, wine, whisky, rum, cognac, coffee, choccolate and more. They even have a restaurant now. Have not tried it though. Selection of beer is good with a basis of good British, American, German, Belgian and Danish as well as new ones coming in at frequent intervals. The staff knows their stuff and is always willing to assist. Beers are not cheap but where in Denmark are they that.

A pretty chaotic place with nice stuff everywhere - on the shelves, on the floor, in boxes on the tables. The beer section has a nice varirity and they use some of the good importers so the selection is great with both danish micros and forreign / american stuff. For whisky and cognac lovers this place is fantastic. A huge table with all their bottles opened ready for tasting is situated in the middle of the room...dont drive to this place.
Have a lot of other quality and gourmet stuff like cheece, fabrick, soaps etc. Friendly staff.
