What can I say about Olbutikken that has not already been said? Just a 10 minute walk or so from the central train station. Well I was in Copenhagen for a little holiday last week with my wife and although Olbutikken was closed the day we planned to visit, Jeppe was kind enough to open up for us to let us shop. Jeppe also agreed to trade a few beers with me so I was really looking forward to the visit. When we arrived, Jeppe was waiting for us and really friendly. We talked for more than 1/2 hour about beer and other stuff while I shopped. Unfortunately my luggage was not big enough to hold all the beer I wanted to buy but I made a good selection of several Danish and Belgian beers including Cantillon Blabaer which I have been waiting to get for a few years. Jeppe worked out a fantastic trade for me that I could not repay him for! Aside from the great Danish and Belgian selection, I was amazed by the number of great US craft beers that were here. I would have bought some but I had to concentrate on things that I just can’t get at home. If you are anywhere near Copenhagen, you have to stop at Olbutikken, you would be stupid not to!

Super lille butik, hvor de altid er først med nyhederne fra USA. Samtidig har de jo af gode grunde god information om nye Mikkeller bryg på trapperne og en god forbindelse til Struise. Det eneste der trækker en smule ned er de alt for korte åbningstider, der gør at det som regel er ret presset for mig.

Dette er byens bedste smugkro. Altid frisk på en smagsprøve. Den lækreste lille butik med toilet i gården. I hjertet af det spænstige Vester Bronx. Servicen er i top og, der er altid en god anekdote at fortælle til hver en øl. Udvalget er Kbh bedste, de har også flotte glas, Mikkeller t-shirts m.m. Maden er ikke noget at prale af, det må man selv medbringe. Åh jo jeg tror engang de havde saltstænger........ Dette er stedet hvor man altid støder på andre Ratebeerfolk, lærke bryggere og eks-bryggere (snøft), og så arbejder der en superfunky ekspedient i meget stramt tøj, mums........det er hele turen værd. Se at komme forbi i en fart ! Lige en enkelt fodnote: Egentlig ville jeg helst give denne butik en total score på 102, men det findes vist ikke. Er du så tilfreds Jeppe?

This is a great place. Small beer shop, not particularly glamorous, but the selection is unbeatable in quality and rarity.

If there is a better shop on the planet I would like to know where it is. Ambience is hard to rate as we were there out of hours and there were only 5 of us in the shop but stood there with good friends old and new sipping on a beer that is currently number 144 on RB made for a pretty fine feel to the place. Service... what can I say? Jeppe is an exemplary human being. Not only for letting us in on a Monday, not only for being generous, not only for opening the previously mentioned bottle of Ølfabrikken Øl, but he even gave us a lift most of the way to our next destination. Handy as we purchased a heavy backpack full of beer. Apologies were made for the selection and still I was both thrilled and impressed. If you do not do whatever it takes to get here when in Denmark you are just plain daft. Thanks Jeppe. Oh and thanks to Ruth for leading the way!

Jeppe came and opened his store on his day off for a total stranger. The store was incredibly stocked, the best that I have seen in Upper Europe since the Pitfield beer shop in London closed. The first to get new beers from Mikkeller and Struise. Easy to get to in Copenhagen as it is near the sightseeing areas of town. By far the best in all the Scandinavian countries. Thanks Jeppe

Would say the mikkeller bottle shop had a slightly better list when I was there, but this was also world class. Got there a touch early for bläbær. Employee was super nice, and helpful. Would recommend.(not sure what in Copenhagen I wouldn’t recommend)

Belgo  (11) Køge, Denmark | June 10, 2005| Updated April 14, 2009
Before the opening of Ølbutikken there was 2-3 beer shops in Copenhagen who could each claim to be the best in terms of selection. Knowledge of the beers being sold was more so-so. But all this has changed with the launch of Ølbutikken. Finally Copenhagen has a beer shop run by true enthusiasts devoted to great beer in all its forms rather than just being enthusiasts within a limited area such as belgian ales. The shop is small but cosy. The selection has the stuff that they have to be able to offer (ie Chimay), but the real strenght lies in the selection of beers rarely seen in Denmark. Great range of lambics (Yummy!) and fine US micros. If this shop was a restaurant, I would bestove 3 Michelin stars upon it, meaning that it alone would be worth traveling a long way for.

We are not globe trotters and why should one be when you have Ølbutikken? Fantastic selection from all around the world and super mega friendly service.

Beer heaven. I’m rating this one darn-near-perfect. Incredibly friendly and knowledgable service (perfect English) and many rare treats, including a fantastic selection of lambics, Scandinavian beers, and the full Westy range. I cannot say enough good things. (Do note the very limited hours - it can be tricky getting here while it’s open. I’ll knock a point off of the overall for that.)
