garden-level bar / restaurant with a large inner terrace. about a dozen taps offered with a cooler of bottles (including some of the more common traditional Belgian lambics). house beer was acceptable but nothing more. does not rank among the best in Copenhagen.
First place we visited upon arrival as it’s open at decent times.
Sat outside in the sunshine and enjoyed a sample tray of beers. Service was friendly, beer wasn’t too bad and prices weren’t too high.
It’s worth a visit to try the beers, they don’t set the world alight, they’re decent and it’s not a bad spot to relax for a little bit.
Pretty big outdoor seating area, but it was raining, so we sat inside. They had five beers on the day I was there. Some were pretty good, others were quite bad. Service was okay, prices were okay. I didn’t eat, but the food seemed to look and smell good.
Brewpub Kobenhavn is accessed through a lovely old courtyard enclosed by a three or four storey building with petrol blue / green woodwork and walls washed in red ochre.
There are steps down into the cosy semi-basement bar with its low ceiling, tea lights (of course!) and suede covered chairs and banquettes. It could appear cluttered but it doesn’t – it carries itself off with style and aplomb. Off the bar, alongside the courtyard, there’s a long narrow area set up for formal dining and outside in the courtyard there’s an outside bar (which I’ve never seen open) with tables and wicker chairs under huge parasols. If you’re cold, there are outside heaters (and blankets no doubt!) and if the courtyard is crowded (I’ve never found it to be so, but it must happen), there are a few low tables and stools in the entrance alley.
Service is friendly and proficient. They usually have around six keg taps and a cask, sometimes including cider or a guest beer, as well as bottles such as Sogaard and Brewpub sodas. I’ve eaten there a couple of times and the food has been good.

Decent spot. The beer quality is average at best, but not bad. To their credit, they do offer a nice range of styles. Prices are par for Copenhagen, which is to say, fairly expensive. Nice outdoor seating area if the weather is cooperative. Reasonably friendly bartender. Worth a stop if you’re making the effort to hit all the stops on the Copenhagen brewpub circuit, but not a must-visit in and of itself.
I first visited BrewPub København in December 2005, a half year or so after they had opened. This was in the glory days of brewer Gunnhild Kolvereid, and I was amazed about her ales, the food and the ambience. Since then I have always had the pleasure of eating and drinking here, whenever I travel to Copenhagen (about twice a year). In the summertime their patio is a very relaxing place for meeting and drinking right in the middle of Copenhagen. However, and I’m sorry for saying this, my impression is that neither their beers nor their food (in the restaurant) has got the same high qualities as before. However, it is still a treat to come to the brewpub, especially the bar, which has got a quite unique atmosphere (last visited, 25.03.2010).
A nice brewpub, decent beers and very good service as well. Free choice of 5 x 10 cl at the price of 92 kroner, a good deal for a ticker. Bar and outdoor seating in the courtyard but the bar is only open in the cellar in the evening. I will gladly revisit! (Visited September 18th 2015)
Nice place with a big Biergarten. Affordable prices for a busy inner city brewpub. Couple of own beers available too.
Definitely much nicer place in the summer time when the biergarten is open.
Update (March 2017):
9 taps (8 beers/1 cider), pre-defined flight of 5 beers available. Decent food, decent beers and maybe a bit pricey.
