Good selection of craft beers. Even though it is a bit away from the central parts it is worth a visit. Good service. Found some nice bottles of faro that I hadn’t seen before as well as some nice bottles at decent prices that weren’t available in other shops around Copenhagen.
Visited a couple of times. They have good stuff on the shelves. And I have tried asking for stuff I did not see, and it was fetched from the back. Founders KBS they only wanted to sell me one. A nice gesture that they want as many as possible to try this great beer.
Prices seems OK.
My visits to Toft Vin have become less frequent as of late. The selection seems to have gone down a bit compared to the past when they were among the top-tier bottleshops receiving part of the limited edition American and Belgian batches that were sent to Copenhagen. Nowadays some shelves seem to be excessively filled with less interesting Danish stuff such as Syndikatet instead. I understand that it’s because the distributors charge too much for the limited edition bottles these days according to the bottle shop. However, when I purchased a 75 cl bottle of Gouden Carolus Indulgence from here they charged me 129 DKK and it’s available at Kihoskh for 89 DKK... NOT COOL!
OLD REVIEW: This place is seriously underrated on RateBeer. It can easily rival Kihoskh for one of the Top #3 spots in the list of Copenhagen bottle shops to visit and it beats Kihoskh on price although perhaps not convenience considering its location on the other side of the harbour canal from the city centre. Originally a wine shop but with a strongly growing selection of specialty beer numbering between 200 - 300 different bottles from predominantly Danish, American and Belgian microbrewers.
I share the taste of the guy in charge of procurement so every time I go there I’m basically tempted to buy the whole shop.
The selection has a slightly greater emphasis on novelty and less on vintage than Barley Wine with which it otherwise shares a few characteristics (knowledgeable and passionate staffer, small room with wide variety of high quality beer).
Among Danish brewers I would say that they have a special emphasis on Mikkeller, To Øl, BeerHere, Amager Bryghus, HornBeer, Black Rooster, Evil Twin, Stronzo, Herslev and related brewers. They often have Belgian sours such as Cantillon Mamouche, Iris, 3F Golden Blend and A&T. Struise and De Molen are also well represented. Among the American breweries present I counted the likes of Clown Shoes, Cigar City, Alesmith, Anchorage Brewing, Founder’s and Jolly Pumpkin.
As mentioned in the above this place is a serious contender for one of the top 3 spots in my personal list of favourite beer shops in Copenhagen.
A really lovely hidden treasure considering it’s still central(ish) Copenhagen. Great selection of beer divided into styles, with a strong selection of Danish, Nordic and German beers as well as British, American and others. Good prices (especially for the Danes). A must visit for anyone, I agree with everyone else this place is rated too low!
Wine shop with a well stocked beer department, including a fridge (handy for beer hunters in need of instant gratification), centrally located on Islands brygge. And just a few minutes’ walk from Cafe Langebro.
It’s easy to forget about this place, I don’t know why but I do it often even though it’s one of my favorite bottle shops in Copenhagen. Knowledgeable staff, very friendly and easy to talk with - I always end up staying there 20 minutes talking about beer, wine and traveling. Their selection is good, sometimes great with a couple of rare beers just sitting on the shelves like nobody knows about them.
Have to agree with some of the other comments on how good this place is and how it does appear underrated on RB.
Service is great, a couple of the guys working there are very friendly and knowledgeable beer wise. In regards to selection this place as the name suggests (vin = wine) is primarily a wine shop but the beer range is highly impressive, especially covering Denmark/US/Belgium. At different times expect to find rarer bottles of Cantillon, Evil Twin, Alesmith, and the occasional Westy. The core range of Danish bottles on offer cover the likes of Amager/Beer Here/To øl/Mikkeller among others. Value is a solid 10/10, especially for Danish brews, don’t think there is anywhere cheaper in CPH for your current range of Mikkeller/To øl etc, often find Mikkeller bottles for nearly 5 to 10kr than being sold in the Mikkeller shop.
Overall this place is well located in Islands Brygge for those of us south of the river. But with it not being north of the river where you will find most of the higher ranked bottle shops this may be the reason its not on many people’s radar when visiting Copenhagen (in that regard draws comparisons with Fish & Beer)
Really wish I found this place earlier but had missed it due to its lower ranked placing in the places list, so a big thanks to humlelala for highlighting this place in the forums. It really deserves to be right up there with the others. Very impressive.
Fantastic beerplace. Great service. Knowingly staff and a huge selection og rare and excellent beers. Couls have bought more than 50 beers I havent rated. Could cary 10. Lots of Danish and American craft beers, and many lambics. Maybe the cheapest place in Copenhagen regarding quality.
