Called in one evening on way back to our hotel, but left straight away. Has a Belgian / French bistro vibe with small tables with red chequered tablecloth. Doesn’t seem like the place to have a drink. Was met with two blank stares from the women behind the bar and a single blank stare from a guy at the bar. Around 10 Belgian beers on tap, hommelbier, troubadour magma and a few other Belgian classics. Lacks atmosphere, felt uncomfortable.
Little quaint place with a small cozy bar. The staff is very friendly and samples were offered. Beer menu is eclectic and offers always something interesting. The food is tasty and well prepared. Prices as always in Denmark - high. Good place though overall for any time a day really.
As a local beer geek this is very special place, full of enthusiasm without the snobbishness excellent beer is served all year round, and there is allways new Stuff to try out and some real solid classics to Fall back on like the troubadour Magma - check it out if you want a laid back exbeerience.
Nice tapas, beer and wine bar. 12 draft beer taps, although it is not always all of them are in use. The bottle selection is not flashy, but consists of a nice little selection of mostly Belgian beers. Perfectly located if you are going to a concert at Vega (where the beer-election is horrible and the prices are absurd).Though considered as a beer place, the nearby Mikkeller and Fermentoren are preferable.
Pegasus is a stylish, assured and relaxed sort of place just off the far end of Istedgade – not far from the Mikkeller bar or Olbuttikken and very handy to stop off at on the way to or from the beer festival (if it’s being held at Carlsberg). It has three rooms, two of which adjoin each other through a round brick arch. There’s bare brick in one room, rough greyish beige plaster in another and the third room is like a whitewashed cellar. All have wooden tables and chairs, red check plastic tablecloths, a few plants and lots of candles; in an opening between the bar and the middle room there’s one wonderful brass candelabra which will soon disappear under the dripped wax of its three candles. The brick bar has gleaming glassware suspended over it in a brass hanger and three tall stools covered in brown and white cow hide.
I went in at around 1700 on a Saturday when the barman was just setting up for the evening and there was a delicious smell of garlic coming from the kitchens, where they prepare tapas and other meals. All the 12 beers listed on the blackboard were priced at DK59 but the barman said that, as I was early and it was raining, mine would be only DKK35. The choice on offer that day was Gudelos (Djaevlebryg), Funky Monk (Hornbeer), Bernardus 12, Hvede Rose, Valeir Donker, Ferdinand Pils, Oko hvede, Magna, Valeir Blond, Fano Vadehav, Buffalo Bitter and Schwarze bock. As you can see, the brewery wasn’t listed for all the beers but the barman seemed to know his stuff and the fact that Chris, Per and Patrick all found something they hadn’t had before must say something about the list.

a beer mecca clearly underrated but terrible service
It was really nice to sit down here after some hours of day three of the beer festival. Had a plate of tapas and a couple of nice beers. The selection isn’t the most exciting for a beer geek, but it’s varied and actually really nice. The service was a bit slow, but that night it didn’t matter too much, we were pretty worn out and had plenty of time, but it shouldn’t be as slow as it was. Wouldn’t mind returning though.
