Little place near the train station. Only four house beers on tap, but tons of rotation and seasonals, apparently. The beers were alright for the most part, particularly the two wheat beers. Prices are okay for Copenhagen.

The Apollo is right by the main entrance of Tivoli and next to the Hereford Beefstouw, with which it shares its glass frontage. Inside, itís rather like being in a large conservatory. There are scrubbed wooden tables (with the tea lights ubiquitous in Denmark) around a vast gleaming copper and mash tun which rise from the basement through a wrought iron and brass balcony. Over this and the stairwell to the bar downstairs soars a glass seagull with its wings outstretched. The copper theme is continued in the ladies toilets downstairs, where a long copper trough takes the place of sinks. [2013 update - the toilets have been switched round and the menís now have the copper trough!] The menu comes as a four page broadsheet newspaper and lists the small array of regular brews plus a beer of the month. All the beers come in large, medium and small sizes with the prices listed on a blackboard near the bar, for drinking in or take away. There must also be an unlisted size of beer as we were amused to see a fellow diner being served with an enormous Kwak-style contraption (a meter of ale perhaps?) full of schwartzbier. We went for more manageable quantities of pilsner, schwartzbier, havre stout and blonde belgisk ale to accompany our meal. The beers arenít particularly exciting but this is a pleasant place to visit, just for a drink or for food. The menu is fairly short but always offers a reasonable selection of good fare and the staff are friendly. In some ways the Apollo is reminiscent of some American brewpubs Ė and indeed it is part of a small chain, with sister places in Odense, Herning and Aarhus Ė although itís in no way sterile and is done here with much more panache and style. (Last visited 6 May 2014).

I liked this place (and I realise that seems to place me squarely in the minority). Great location, and I thought the house beers were quite good, as well as eclectic. My service was fine, although it was a Sunday afternoon and it wasnít busy. The skylights provide plenty of natural light and provide a certain cheeriness to the joint. Prices arenít cheap but pretty par for Copenhagen, I suppose. Overall, this is a much better brewpub than the one down the street.

Visited in May 2001 and didnít take any notes on the place, but it is right in the heart of the city and an easy place to find something besides Carlsberg.

Since Tivoli in Copenhagen does not open before the middle of April, Apollo is not as busy as it used to be during the Tivoli season. An open and rather spacious place serving five of its own ales during my visit on Palm Sunday 2010. Even if it is far from the most exciting beer drinking places in Copenhagen, their beers are decent and well kept, and I remember a time when Apollo was the only brewpub in Copenhagen. Polite service in alright surroundings, not much atmosphere, though. Worth a visit, if not essential (visited 28.03.2010).

I would say that Bryggeriet Apollo gives the impression of being a steak house more than a brewpub. In the entrance a sign says "Please wait to be seated" Ignore it and turn right to the bar. Limited seating by the bar, but good enough for me. I only wanted to try some of their beers. Their Blonde Ale was actually a good beer! Not a bad start at noon Saturday.

Very close to the central station if you have some spare time. A little bit tourist trap because it is so close to Tivoli. Ok food.A bit expensive. And absolutely not the best beer around.

3 house beers, we had 2. More of a restaurant than bar, but pretty coppers and a nice outside cafe make it a pleasant place for a couple. Service was typical for a non-beer place. Not worth going out of your way for, but itís right across from Central Station, so you wonít.
