12-place dark wood bar with dark brown leather bar stools. No foot rail. 2 6-tap towers. Palm brewing system in basement level. Flat-bottom fermenters makes yeast harvesting challenging. Happy-hour seven days a week from 16-18 hours. Restrooms downstairs with no elevator and no door on men’s room.
Entry area with bar to right side and tall tables to left. Brewhouse at front. Back room and loft-level with tables and booths and sofas. All non-smoking! Silent 42: TVs with Engligh-language pop music on the stereo at conversation level.
Convenient location to city center and busses/trams. Mostly pleasant staff who admit that living wages paid negate the concern for tips for job performance.
Pub food menu. Beers at Kr 55/0.5L

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.

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.

Located opposite Tivoli. Beers are poor to shocking. Friendly staff, nice pub interior with polished brass bar pumps and comfortable seating. The main deficiency is the beer. they advertise a 5 beer taster, but only brewed 4 the time I visited, so they give you a glass of Carlsberg, hardly an endorsement of their brewing.

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.

A nice looking place but the food was just ok. Beers were only a small list. Service was ok at best. I have a feeling that its run by a coorperation.

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

Huge place and very crowded on a friday afternoon. Service is not very good but what you can expect from a crowded place. The beers are very bland, but you can get 5 x 10cl samplers for 55 kr.

Visted in May 2010 - Not very good. They didn’t seem to be too bothered about the beers when I visited. Has the potential to be great, especially given its location, but it feels more like a nightclub and the beer is not really given the attention it deserves, especially at the brewing stage.

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.
