Pretty nice place I had a few rounds with local Ratebeerians. Preference here for Danish micros, mostly Mikkeller and also Grassroots/Fano, Amager. Loads of oddball American micros too like Cigar City and Founders...things you would never expect in Denmark. Glassware was all perfect for style. Very proper pours. Staff was very knowledgeable about beer. A little pricey but then again I was not used to the price level in CPH, which can be quite a shock for an outsider. Definitely worth stopping by for a few rounds.
Good selection of Danish micros with Amager and Mikkeller leading the way. The staff is friendly and mostly knowledgeable. I simply love the versatile layout of this place: If you’re into sports there are plenty of screens. You can sit in the couch and lounge chair area if that’s your thing or at regular tables like any other place. This is the place I always come back to when in Copenhagen, even though there are other places with better selections.
The Orested Olbar is in a semi-basement just opposite the Oresteds Park, still fairly close to the city centre but away from the hustle and bustle. Going down a few steps from the street corner there is an open entrance area with comfy-looking armchairs and sofas. The main bar, which has bare brick walls, is furnished more simply with wooden tables and chairs. There’s also a room to the left of the entrance hall with table football, a dart board and some excellent paint effects.
I really like this place. It’s cosy, with a nice comfortable neighbourhood feel, and there’s a good selection of beers on tap as well as a long bottle list.

Nice beer bar that masquerades as a sports bar (to the horror of at least one bar tender). Tough to give any place in Copenhagen high marks for value since everything is so freakin expensive. But I’d rank this as a must for visitors to Copenhagen.

Very nice place to drink your beer. Great choice of beers, both taps and bottles from special breweries of Europe and USA. Relaxing, good music, nice staff.

13 tap beers with some interesting choices not cheap but very reasonable for Copenhagen. Good choice in bottled beers including. de molen, some American beers, brewdog and mikkeller
This was my first stop on my four beer beer crawl, not a bad place to start with. Its across the street from a nice park and has some good outdoor seating...Nice taps about 10, all local, with a huge beer list. I asked the server for a recommendation and he gave me a great one to start off the first drink of the day on a hot summer’s day. He really knew what he was talking about...The quality of the beer was really nice, huge selection. The beer menu was really good was it was first catergorized by style of beer and country of origin, then at the back just listed all the beers in alphabetical order. I only stayed for one drink here because I was ending my trip out of cash and didn’t want to go the atm machine, as they only accept Danish credit cards.
Good place to go to, worth stopping by but make sure you have CASH if you’re an American.
One of the best places in Copenhagen to drink mainly danish microes on tap like the amazing Mikkellers - and watch football on TV. Very crowdy when FC Copenhagen or the danish national team playes. Otherwise a good spot with top-notch ambience - rock music or a DJ. 13 beers on tap, changes (almost) weekly. Approx. 180 on bottle. One of my favorite hang-outs in Copenhagen. Recommended!
