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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

I’ve heard about this place because of Blabaer of course but there is much more going on here and a must stop by. It has very weird hours so make sure you check the website before just dropping by as it is a little far away from the train station and nice parts of town...We showed up a little early but they were already open which was nice and allowed me to spend some time talking to Jeppe, the owner and twin brother of Mikel from Mikkeller. Jeppe is a very nice and knowledge guy, helped me pick out many beers that no way I would have picked up...Of course my reason for going was to get blabaer as the website said they were stocked, sadly when I got there they have sold out the last day they were open. Hugely disappointing of course, but Jeppe did hook me up with one bottle from the back so I was very grateful...As far as the beer goes its a very nice selection, tons of mikkeller and belgians (westy, rare de dolles), a few cantillons but not as rare as I was hoping. Tons of american brews and not easy ones to get. If your an American no need to check those out but if you don’t have access, there are ones worth getting. The price I thought was very fair.
Overall, a great place to go even if Blabaer isn’t there, but maybe sometime in 2011 you plan a special trip to get the blabaer as that is the next time it will be out.
