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. The last time I was here they were laying a new floor, which now looks like dirty MDF, but not much else had 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 Olenthusiasten award (bronze medal) in a cracked frame and a photograph of a football team.
Although it’s just off Stroget 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 smoke (smoking is allowed except on Mondays and Fridays) and 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 is a printed beer list each day. On 24 May the offerings were all Danish, including Mikkeller Exotic Punch, Svaneke In Your Face IPA, The Blind Eye (Croocked Moon) and OriginAle (Djaevlebryg). A few days later, after the beer festival, the line up included an eclectic selection of Christmas beers. The bar also has its own ciders.
There’s no food apart from nuts but there is decent music, free wifi and assorted comics and beer-related magazines such as Olenthusiasten and Beer Advocate in a stand by the door. The staff are always very friendly and welcoming as well as being knowledgeable about their wares.

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 :(

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.

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).

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.

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.

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.

Specalizes in Danish micros, with a fair range on tap. They even make their own real cider from an orchard in Denmark. Friendly service on a quiet day, some wery nice Stilton to nibble while we sipped our beers, too. I’ll be back at the first opportunity!
