Central location near main train station. A dozen tables on outdoor patio. Glass ceiling offers lots of light and hanging plants appear thriving. Light wood tables and plexiglass domes for natural lighting make for pleasant environment. Very open feel with bar backed against an exterior red brick wall. Red brick arches throughout the dining area with shiny copper brewing vessels interspersed.
2-liter growlers available to-go.
Basement level with rows of tables to accommodate large groups. Service is somewhat surly but not too slow for a city where tips are automatically added to the bill and server behavior shows it. Slow lunch service and were never asked if we wanted a second beer. Across the street from the hop-on-hop-off tourist bus stop.
Drinking age is 18+ for "strong drink".
typical high-end prices: Kr33 for 25cl glass.
Located right next to Tivoli. More of a restaurant than a brewpub. 4 taps on: their pilsner, a blond, a weissbier and a surprinsingly good ipa (i.e. I can find hops in it). This place was never very good and it got worse. A tick is a tick...
Located right next to and actually backing into Tivoli, this is located in a tourist heavy area. When you arrive you will be assumed to be taking a table to dine here by the staff as it has a very big dinning area but if it’s quiet can normally be given a table just to drink beer but at busier times its fine to just head to the tall tables on your right near the bar. Beer quality is pretty random quality wise across their 2 or 3 regular brews and with a few rotating seasonal beers of the month. In summary it’s not a terrible place to stop by for us Copenhageners once a month to quickly grab a new scoop or two, but certainly not a destination place in the beer wonderland that is Copenhagen for Ratebeerians from further afield with limited drinking time.
The sign by the door said wait here to be seated. It looked more like a restaurant. They were happy for us just to have a beer though. We were served at our table. The beers were better than I had expected, but just 4 of them. Fairly quiet for lunch time on Easter Monday. Tivoli had not opened for the season though yet.
Part of a chain brewpub centrally placed right next to the railway station and Tivoli. Havent eaten here, but at the Aarhus counterpart the food is reasonable. 3-4 beers on tap with a pretty high rotation. Quality wise raging from below average to average. Prices on par with the location aka expensive.
I usually visit this place every time I
m in Copenhagen. Though the prices for both beer and food are really on the high side. Nevertheless they have interesting beer. Staff service has been really bad historically, though latest visit had better service than usual. Latest was summer 2014.
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.

Visited a Saturday night for a few fast ticks. 4 taps. The first brewpub in Denmark founded in 1990, run by a chain of restaurants selling steak dinners. As mentioned several times before the close location to Tivoli, the Main Station and the City Square means this is basically a busy place aimed at tourists - this means expensive food, indifferent service and beers are mediocre bordering on boring. But at least fresh. Just scroll by - there are more exciting choices near by - both restaurants and beers.
Very busy place beside entrance to Tivoli. The coppers are right In the middle and the seating around them on two floors. Beers were fine offering a reasonable but not extensive selection. Food was very beef based.
