Maybe a bit underrated? This most excellent bar offers nothing but danish microbrews on tap, at very decent prices. Basically pretty much what th beer tourist looks for, so go there simply put. Even the locals regularly find something they have not tried yet. Easy location from the city centre as well and rather calm, well lighted basement interior feels relazing enough.

It’s unusual in Denmark to find a small bar that is not either stylish or “hyggelig” (the best translation seems to be “cosy”) and, indeed, many manage to be both at the same time! The Lord Nelson is neither. In fact it’s quite scruffy. When I visited a few years ago they were laying a new floor, which now looks like dirty MDF, but not much else has changed. The décor remains basic - unadorned except for the picture of Nelson which presides over a model ship, a couple of small prints of the Battle of Trafalgar, a barometer, one of those small glass cases containing nautical knots, an Ølenthusiasten award (bronze medal) in a cracked frame and a photograph of a football team.
Although it’s just off Strøget in the heart of town, the Lord Nelson probably isn’t the kind of place you’d come into if it weren’t for the beer range, but I always enjoy visiting. It’s in a basement with the bottom of the windows at street level although, even with the low ceiling, it can seem quite light and airy as there are also windows at the back opening onto an inner courtyard. There are some high top tables, benches against the wall with wooden tables and chairs and high stools at the bar.
The bar is quite small but packs in 14 hand pumps and not a boring beer amongst them. There used to be a printed beer list each day but this seems to have been discontinued.
There’s no food apart from nuts but there is decent music, free wifi and assorted comics and beer-related magazines such as Dansk Ølenthusiasten and Beer Advocate in a stand by the door. The staff are always very friendly and welcoming and usually knowledgeable about their wares, although I have to say that on our last visit the otherwise very nice barman (a New Yorker) served us a Refsvindinge Røde Mor in place of Nordkystens Banjer Øl without realising it; and no recompense was offered when the mistake came to light, even though we’d said when first choosing our beers that we wouldn’t have the Refsvindinge because we weren’t generally keen on them. A petty gripe perhaps, but there you go.

Not an incredible selection, but on tap there are almost exclusively good Danish beers. I like to stop here in the late afternoon, use their wifi connection and keep working for an hour or two with a pint of beer. Ølfabrikken, Raasted, Ørbæk among the most common ones here.

Small, cozy place with good service. The American bartender was here for the first time, but still very friendly. All together 14 taps with Danish micro breweries like Croocked Moon. At least I will visit again next time I’m in KBH.
Second visit. Definitely great place to visit when in town. This time bartender was highly knowledgeable and friendly. Lots of local micros to taste.

Visited on Jul 10 and July 11. Fairly rowded place with a nice draught beer selection. Good service and nice regulars. Haven’t tried eating. Not fun that smoking is still allowed, but otherwise a very nice place.

Bar situated in a weird basement room with high wood panelling, and with a rough wooden bar. Very centraly situated in Copenhagen, and props up for just wanting to carry Danish microbrews. Some of the staff is great, but the newest Assie convict hire is a disaster, doesn’t get his orders right :(

A small, cellar pub right in the heart of central Copenhagen. Lord Nelson has been running for three years now and presents an ever-changing range of beers from Danish microbreweries. Usually there are at least 12 different beers on tap, in addition to a few ciders from the Nelson farm. During the years the variety of offerings has expanded, and the draft menu now also includes ales from Djævlebryg, Amager and Mikkeller. Their website contains the whole menu and is updated every week. This is a very cosy and friendly place it is easy to get in touch with other guests. The staff is super friendly and attentive. A lovely place for exciting beer drinking that should not be missed (last visited 10.09 and 15.09.2008).

Visited several times, easy to get to placed in the citycenter. Small cosy pub, placed in the basement. Can at times be rather busy, and in the summer rather varm as well. They serve a nice selecion of danish micros, a few ciders as well. Most times in good condition. Friendly, serviceminded staff. This place is a beery pub, they don´t serve food. Worth a visit you are around.

Interesting bar. Situated in what I perceived to be the shopping district in Copenhagen. Kind of surprised at the interior for the location, but they had a tap list with unsuspecting fare. Worth a stop.
