Visited in May 2001 and didn’t take any notes on the place, but it is right in the heart of the city and an easy place to find something besides Carlsberg.

Very touristy spot with the prices to go with it, pints above 60kr. Thy had 3 beers when I was there, which seems to be better than average. Rather ordinary beers. A bit over the top touristy atmosphere with many people coming in and out for a minute due to the modern glass interior, but that does not quite make you want to stay longer. Straightforward service.

Little place near the train station. Only four house beers on tap, but tons of rotation and seasonals, apparently. The beers were alright for the most part, particularly the two wheat beers. Prices are okay for Copenhagen.

The Apollo is right by the main entrance of Tivoli and next to the Hereford Beefstouw, with which it shares its glass frontage. Inside, it’s rather like being in a large conservatory. There are scrubbed wooden tables (with the tea lights ubiquitous in Denmark) around a vast gleaming copper and mash tun which rise from the basement through a wrought iron and brass balcony. Over this and the stairwell to the bar downstairs soars a glass seagull with its wings outstretched. The copper theme is continued in the ladies toilets downstairs, where a long copper trough takes the place of sinks. [2013 update - the copper trough is no longer there!]
The menu comes as a four page broadsheet newspaper and lists the small array of regular brews plus a beer of the month. All the beers come in large, medium and small sizes with the prices listed on a blackboard near the bar, for drinking in or take away. There must also be an unlisted size of beer as we were amused to see a fellow diner being served with an enormous Kwak-style contraption (a meter of ale perhaps?) full of schwartzbier. We went for more manageable quantities of pilsner, schwartzbier, havre stout and blonde belgisk ale to accompany our meal. The beers aren’t particularly exciting but this is a pleasant place to visit, just for a drink or for food. The menu is fairly short but always offers a reasonable selection of good fare and the staff are friendly.
In some ways the Apollo is reminiscent of some American brewpubs – and indeed it is part of a small chain, with sister places in Odense, Herning and Aarhus – although it’s in no way sterile and is done here with much more panache and style.

The beers are ok, but the selection is very small...

I liked this place (and I realise that seems to place me squarely in the minority). Great location, and I thought the house beers were quite good, as well as eclectic. My service was fine, although it was a Sunday afternoon and it wasn’t busy. The skylights provide plenty of natural light and provide a certain cheeriness to the joint. Prices aren’t cheap but pretty par for Copenhagen, I suppose. Overall, this is a much better brewpub than the one down the street.

3 house beers, we had 2. More of a restaurant than bar, but pretty coppers and a nice outside cafe make it a pleasant place for a couple. Service was typical for a non-beer place. Not worth going out of your way for, but it’s right across from Central Station, so you won’t.

Located right next to the entrance of Tivoli amusement park. Have been there several times, always gotten fairly bad service. Probably becuase I donä’t eat, "only" try beers. The first one you get fairly easy, then the staff seems to ignore you to make you go away. Beers are OK though, but service doesn’t really want you to feel welcome at all. Latest visit on July 10, 2009.

A very turisty place that wants to be hype - definately not a place that wants to be something for the beer geek - this is very mainstream, but with a location right next to Tivoli’s maingate - who can blame them? The staff knows next-to-nothing about beer - and sometimes it seems as if they rather have the customers leave. Not even the brew master really cares about beer nor a conversation about beer - the business must run and that is all he cares about. Drinking customers are being asked to leave the tables to the eating customers - not good customer service in my opinion. All in all I find the service level bad. Now they’ve extended their line to have 4 beers on. The food is OK, but nothing to go out of Your way to get.

Since Tivoli in Copenhagen does not open before the middle of April, Apollo is not as busy as it used to be during the Tivoli season. An open and rather spacious place serving five of its own ales during my visit on Palm Sunday 2010. Even if it is far from the most exciting beer drinking places in Copenhagen, their beers are decent and well kept, and I remember a time when Apollo was the only brewpub in Copenhagen. Polite service in alright surroundings, not much atmosphere, though. Worth a visit, if not essential (visited 28.03.2010).
