Small place packed with goodies. Staff were super helpful. Prices were not bad. Easy walk from the train station. For sure worth a long look.

Very small bottle shop with a great selection. Tons of Danish and other Scandinavian micros along with a tons of Belgian beers. Prices are pretty good as well, much better than bar prices. Friendly enough service. Well worth a stop.

This now legendary bottle shop is in a semi-basement but it’s difficult to miss as it has the distinctive Olbutikken “skyline of bottles” logo on the window alongside an illuminated little yellow Oerbier man. There doesn’t seem to be very much more stock than there was in the old place, which was smaller, but there’s still an eclectic choice of beers from around the world with Denmark, the USA and Belgium featuring heavily. Needless to say, there are lots of Evil Twin beers. There’s a long bench table where you can sit awhile and enjoy a bottle or two.

To me, this place seems a bit overrated. It does have a great selection but by no means does it have the best selection in Copenhagen. Lots of American beers available, which of course is an attraction to Europeans that don’t get over to the States. Aside from the US beers, there are some nice Belgians with a few interesting vintage beers and plenty of Danish stuff. All prices pretty typical for Denmark. The shop is fairly small but when it isn’t too busy (which it was on my visit) I’d say this would be a great place to sit and have a beer. (Although, the premium you pay to drink the beer in-house seems a bit high, generally about DKK 20-40 more than the take-out price it seemed.) They have a nice bathroom, which is a plus as well. It’s definitely worth visiting here, especially since this place is so close to the Mikkeller bar.

Excellent selection (for the quality I mean. I think there are other places with more bottles in CPH), some beers can really only be found here. I like to look mostly for the Struise ones, Mikkeller, some rarish lambic and good Americans (Great Divide and Avery for example). Great place.

No crap on tap is Falling rock’s motto, well trust me on this one, you’ll find no crap in bottles here. Just a one-man part-time operation, fully founded by passion. Hardly comparable service. If he can improve on anything, I guess it would be the food department! Otherwise, the selection is tough to beat, not huge, but every bottle is desirable.

My first place rating- sort of a weird system. Anyways- walked all the way here in the rain about 3.5 miles. The store wasn’t even open yet but Jeppe let me in to peruse the selection. A crap load of rare Mikkeller and stuff that I can’t find anywhere in the states like LA Angel’s Share, FFF Behemoth, hell sometimes they get Dark Lord. What!? Lots of fun stuff from Norway and Sweden too. It was totally worth trekking to in the rain. Awesome service, very friendly, especially kind to huge beer geeks like myself. Recommended!

Friday afternoon. Quite busy but nice place. Good variety of Danish, Belgian and US micros. Especially Mikkeller well presented. Friendly staff. OK prices.
Good place to find new Mikkeller stuff and some US too.

Pretty small shop located close to Mikkeller’s Viktoriagade. Probably less than 150 bottles available on my visit. Good quality stuff, but priced a bit higher than the underrated Kihosk. Service was reasonably cheery. The selection had the ususal mix of Danish, American, and Belgian goodies. Overall, nice, but not the mind blowing experience that I had been led to believe it was.

Great collection of bottles, imported as well as domestic. Prices on relatively rare imports from the US and Belgium were surprisingly good. Lots of Danish stuff too. Vibe was a bit too hipster when I went in, almost like I wasn’t cool enough, but hey, I’m not.
