Fairly large brewpub with two levels. We sat at the lower level with the bar and down by the brewing equipment. They had 9 beers on, including Little Korkny, which was a nice treat. Beers ranged from awesome to mediocre at best. Good service, prices are a little high, though. Tons of bottled beers in addition to the taps.
I’ve always liked Norrebro Bryghus, not least because it seemed to be in the vanguard when exciting new Danish brewers started popping up a few years ago. I remember the days when it was difficult to find anything other than Carlsberg or Tuborg in Copenhagen and it was wonderful to find a place brewing something different, and of high quality too.
The brewpub has three distinct areas – the large brewing kit is on the left as you enter, the bar is at the end of a low ceilinged room to the right and there’s an upstairs eating area. There are also tables and chairs on the narrow pavement outside.
It has a nice relaxed feel and the staff are always friendly. If you’re uncertain what to choose, descriptions of the beers are posted on a pillar by the bar and I see that the current offerings are listed on the website too.
We didn’t eat on our last visit although I seem to remember that the food was good when I did eat here.

A great brewpub with an enjoyable atmosphere and reasonable prices. Not a huge fan of Nørrebro beers but they are well-made and a few are worth trying. Service was very friendly and helpful. Worth a stop when in the area.
Visited on Saturday 22/08/15 in the afternoon on the RBESG CPH tour of death.
Smart brewpub in terms of decor set over two floors. Tap selection covered the basic styles and the beers were just fine. Nothing like any of the heavy hitter top class imperial stouts of Norrebro past to be found ... just a regular brew pub. Nothing wrong with that but treat it as a place to grab some ticks not to drink world class beer. I think this venue is living off past ratings when it was one of the few brewpubs in CPH in terms of its overall ranking !
Nice good looking pub/restaurant.
Fine selection of their own beers.
Mostly a restaurant at top level. And pub downstairs. You can also have a look at their brewing facilities.
Nice racomendable place. Good food.
Nørrebro Bryghus is a genuine brew house in a charming part of Copenhagen and perhaps one of the best of its kinds in Europe. For me this is a must visit and revisit place every time I come to Copenhagen. I had the pleasure of attending the fifth anniversary of the brew house in September 2008 with the four courses food menu added by five of their own beers, even supported by a taster of a new beer released every hour during the evening.. The celebration was just great – delicious food, great service, living and well-kept ales and happy people (last visited 11.09 and 20.09.2008).
2009: Finally had a chance to visit the brewpub. They had about 10 beers for take-away (in cold) and 15 to try at place. Tried one and bought 3 bottles (for 100 kr) to go. Quite busy on Friday afternoon but the staff was very friendly. A bit business driven which was shame because I’ve always been a big fan of Nørrebro products. Now also Special Beers available to buy to go.
2010: Great selection of own brews and some other (also some not so common) beers as well. Great place with modest prices. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff.
2017: 10 taps (8 their own/1 guest beer/1 guest cider), a flight of 4 available, tasty smørrebrød taster available. Friendly service and kid friendly atmosphere.

Lets get one thing straight at the outset. This is an essential visit when in Copenhagen. Some of the beers are truly excellent, some less so, but you can’t miss them when in town. And lets get another thing straight. The welcome and atmosphere when we had the RBESG gathering here was simply excellent. But as a place, I just don’t like it. Perhaps the restaurant section is different, although it is obviously upscale, but I’ve never been in that part. The downstairs bar, however, is simply not to my taste. "Stylish" modern decor, comfy sofas, deafening music played by a dodgy DJ and an incongruous little dance floor do not make for a congenial atmosphere for chatting and sampling the beers. Perhaps I ’ve just been at the wrong time. The service, whilst possibly clueless, has been entirely efficient when I’ve been there. I know what I want, I ask for it, they pour it without delays. A beer place that is manifestly not "all about the beer". Just not my scene at all.
