garden-level bar / restaurant with a large inner terrace. about a dozen taps offered with a cooler of bottles (including some of the more common traditional Belgian lambics). house beer was acceptable but nothing more. does not rank among the best in Copenhagen.
Pretty big outdoor seating area, but it was raining, so we sat inside. They had five beers on the day I was there. Some were pretty good, others were quite bad. Service was okay, prices were okay. I didnít eat, but the food seemed to look and smell good.
Brewpub Kobenhavn is accessed through a lovely old courtyard enclosed by a three or four storey building with petrol blue / green woodwork and walls washed in red ochre.
There are steps down into the cosy semi-basement bar with its low ceiling, tea lights (of course!) and suede covered chairs and banquettes. It could appear cluttered but it doesnít Ė it carries itself off with style and aplomb. Off the bar, alongside the courtyard, thereís a long narrow area set up for formal dining and outside in the courtyard thereís an outside bar (which Iíve never seen open) with tables and wicker chairs under huge parasols. If youíre cold, there are outside heaters (and blankets no doubt!) and if the courtyard is crowded (Iíve never found it to be so, but it must happen), there are a few low tables and stools in the entrance alley.
Service is friendly and proficient. They usually have around six keg taps and a cask, sometimes including cider or a guest beer, as well as bottles such as Sogaard and Brewpub sodas. Iíve eaten there a couple of times and the food has been good.

First place we visited upon arrival as itís open at decent times.
Sat outside in the sunshine and enjoyed a sample tray of beers. Service was friendly, beer wasnít too bad and prices werenít too high.
Itís worth a visit to try the beers, they donít set the world alight, theyíre decent and itís not a bad spot to relax for a little bit.
Decent spot. The beer quality is average at best, but not bad. To their credit, they do offer a nice range of styles. Prices are par for Copenhagen, which is to say, fairly expensive. Nice outdoor seating area if the weather is cooperative. Reasonably friendly bartender. Worth a stop if youíre making the effort to hit all the stops on the Copenhagen brewpub circuit, but not a must-visit in and of itself.
Very pleasant outside terrace, feeling far from the noisy city centre. Their beer selection was okay, 6 beers of vaied styles, but I canít say any of those particularly impressed me. Excellent bilingual service.

Nice place with big Biergarten. Affordable prices for a busy inner city Brewpub. Couple of own beers available too.
Definitely much nicer place in the summertime when the Biergarten is open.
I first visited BrewPub KÝbenhavn in December 2005, a half year or so after they had opened. This was in the glory days of brewer Gunnhild Kolvereid, and I was amazed about her ales, the food and the ambience. Since then I have always had the pleasure of eating and drinking here, whenever I travel to Copenhagen (about twice a year). In the summertime their patio is a very relaxing place for meeting and drinking right in the middle of Copenhagen. However, and Iím sorry for saying this, my impression is that neither their beers nor their food (in the restaurant) has got the same high qualities as before. However, it is still a treat to come to the brewpub, especially the bar, which has got a quite unique atmosphere (last visited, 25.03.2010).
