This is really your only option for craft beer in Skagen. A "classic" brewpub with big copper tanks in the dining room and beers named after local celebrities. Very nice building really with old brickwork and a big crane in the middle of the room leftover from whatever it used to be. Also has a large beer garden outside with regular live music. Competent service. They had 8 of their beers on tap, which is a little sad given that they have a 24 tap system. Again "classic" beer styles, it was not clear which, if any, were special or seasonal brews. You can get a sampler flight. We just had nachos but other peoples’ food looked pretty good. OUTRAGEOUS prices for Denmark, but it’s a tourist town and many of said tourists are Norwegian. A must visit in Skagen, because you have no choice, maybe worth a trip from Frederikshavn. We had a nice time.

Fairly central in Skagen, near the chuch and the pedestrian area and about ten minutes walk from the train station. Visited early on a Monday afternoon in February and the place was pretty deserted. We were the only costumers and go friendly service and fairly decent food (at least large portions and very crispy bacon!). Had limited time so only managed to try two of the beers, the Easter APA (Skawpåske) was pretty fresh and quite okay, but it seemed like the IPA (Gl. Skagen) was not so fresh, but still fairly drinkable. Nice place in a way, but probably not the most interesting beers, but still worth a visit if one happens to be in the area.

Located near the church in the center of town. Large restaurant indoors and a large patio. They have their own beers on tap and you can also buy purchase bottles to take with you. I found a new one and was happy about that. The service is not the most friendly.

The weather was sunny at my visit, so we sat outside for at late lunch. The food was mediocre - the rye bread was the supermarket kind instead of coming from the bakery, and the same was the case for other ingredients. The beers are your typical Skagen beers. There were no new beers for my, so I took the Bundgarn, which was good, but the others went for the Hefe and were not satisfied. Meh.

Nice place with a friendly staff and 6 of their own beers. In the summer there is live music.

I read before i went that this is a tourist trap, and i must say i agree. Boring place, boring beers, boring staff.
Even in the high season when there wasnt many people there we had to wait for service. Inside AND outside.
I tried a total 8 of their beers, with only Væltepetter and Gl. Skagen as checks in as ok beers, Nordlys was fair, but when it comes to Bundgarn, Drachmann, Skawskum, Tuxen and Lars Kruse, i’ll rather take a Carlsberg.

Visited July 2012 during Skagen Festival: The place was packed, so no disses about service. Surroundings are great, big patio and ok space inside. We had the festival beer and it was quite drinkable.

Kind of a neat stop in a touristy city that is full of tourists. Pretty bland and boring beers, but the service was good. I had a fish meatball and it was pretty tasty. Somewhat pricy, however.
