More of a night club/going out to get hammered sort of bar feel to it. Four house beers on tap on my visit, service was adequate, prices were okay. Not some place you really ever need to go back to.

Streckers, aka Vesterbro Bryghus, has two entrances with a Burger King sandwiched in between. It’s a huge place with the brewing equipment on display by the right hand entrance, a long bar, tables downstairs in a cavernous basement and on a mezzanine floor at the back and high top benches and tables with stools in the main bar area.
We went in around 1230 on a Monday and it was deserted apart from a surly and unwelcoming barmaid. There are a few tables with comfortable wicker chairs outside but it was hardly a pleasant place to sit as it’s on the busiest part of Vesterbrogade where the traffic noise was contending with the cacophony of drilling, banging and cutting coming from the building site opposite where Copenhagen Corner and a touristy shopping arcade used to be.
There’s a board outside advertising the Bryghus’s “keynote” beers – blond lager, amber lager, brown ale and a hvede. They also serve Tuborg classic and Carlsberg. I wasn’t impressed by their beers, nor by the fact that they are only served in 50cl glasses (all at DKK55). Apparently they offer a sampler of five 10cl glasses for the same price but, as others have noted, only up to 2230.
They also serve sandwiches, burgers and salads for c.DKK49 and a three course menu for DKK198. This is the brunt of it really. It’s a plastic pub designed, I suspect, to draw in tourists who don’t want to venture away from the main tourist drags and are satisfied by bog standard victuals.

Just out of KBV’s train station, so you may as well stop by with the sampler tray being one of the cheapest around, but really, it’s a tourist spot with prices being unveiled in 6 different currencies on the bill... Cold hangout with under average beers.

Basic tourist brewpub. A little soulless. The server had very, very little time for pleasantries, despite the bar being mostly empty. Four house beers were on, and all four were a variation on doughy/ fairly sugary/ sweet. None of the beers were offensive, though none were at all inspiring. Only worth a visit for the brewpub factor.

Had a breakfast here (actually without knowing it was Vesterbro Bryghus). After that visited The Old English Pub next door and had some Vesterbro brews to get impression. Quite big place but not very cozy or authentic.
Another visit to this place. Eating again. Ordered beer tasting (5 samples) and got Vesterbro Blond Lager, Amber Lager, Julebryg and India Pale Ale and CARLSBERG. Food was good beer wasn’t.

Visited the lastest time on July 11, 2009. They opened late during the summer, so hit several other places first, didn’t arrive at the brewpub until well after they stop selling their sample plate, which was at 10 or 10.30 pm. The nice girl behind the bar got us the plate anyway though, very nice service for that. Had 4 beers in when we visited, all of which was fairly boring. Lon gbar in the upstairs room, nice cellar space as well. Haven’t tried eating.

On the other side from Tivoli. Crappy place. 2 beers on tap. Both only being served in 50cl. Hideously expensive. Tourist trap! Avoid.

The staff seemed very confused on both my visits to the place, as to whom should do which tasks, but both my visits was within the first month since opening, which could have caused this. There was very load dance music coming out the speakers when I was there at 6:30 PM on a Thursday - which doesn’t make it the place to take professional connections nor a date. They have 5 beers on tap, which can be served either by ˝ liter or as a sampler 5 samples of 10 cl. You can’t have a small beer ie. 25 cl. It was very smoky inspite of only a limited crowd. The beers are served very cold, but this can be an advantage since the beers are very boring. And the beers are either boring or not to style, probably the worst brewpub I’ve ever been to. The food was expensive and boring.

If you are a ticker, and proud of it, this is a nice place for some new ticks. But be prepared for mediocre beers, and only in 0,5 l servings. For everyone else, better beer and service across the street at Apollo. Vesterbro Bryghus have one of the best locations in Copenhagen, nice interior, which reminds me of an English pub. But the service could for sure be better, and as for the beers, easy forgotten

Modern and slick place, almost empty on the Thursday evening before the 1st European Beer Festival (Sep 2008). Of those that came in or were already none spoke to my wife and I, apart from the barmen.
Entrance looks boring, but once inside you can see it is an up-market type of joint. There is an eating area to the rear, extra seats upstairs and downstairs you find the brewing equipment, a night club, posh long tables with stainless barrels in the centre and the toilets.
The staff were all pleasant, polite and helpful on my visit.
5 beers on tap, all brewed on the premises and very cold, in fact too cold to even try and review (as I intended to do). They do a taster tray of all 5, but I didn’t bother with that having a Red and Black beer which might have been tasty if they weren’t chilled so much.
