Streckers, aka Vesterbro Bryghus, has two entrances with a Burger King sandwiched in between. It’s a huge place with the brewing equipment on display by the right hand entrance, a long bar, tables downstairs in a cavernous basement and on a mezzanine floor at the back and high top benches and tables with stools in the main bar area.
We went in around 1230 on a Monday and it was deserted apart from a surly and unwelcoming barmaid. There are a few tables with comfortable wicker chairs outside but it was hardly a pleasant place to sit as it’s on the busiest part of Vesterbrogade where the traffic noise was contending with the cacophony of drilling, banging and cutting coming from the building site opposite where Copenhagen Corner and a touristy shopping arcade used to be.
There’s a board outside advertising the Bryghus’s “keynote” beers – blond lager, amber lager, brown ale and a hvede. They also serve Tuborg classic and Carlsberg. I wasn’t impressed by their beers, nor by the fact that they are only served in 50cl glasses (all at DKK55). Apparently they offer a sampler of five 10cl glasses for the same price but, as others have noted, only up to 2230.
They also serve sandwiches, burgers and salads for c.DKK49 and a three course menu for DKK198. This is the brunt of it really. It’s a plastic pub designed, I suspect, to draw in tourists who don’t want to venture away from the main tourist drags and are satisfied by bog standard victuals.

Basic tourist brewpub. A little soulless. The server had very, very little time for pleasantries, despite the bar being mostly empty. Four house beers were on, and all four were a variation on doughy/ fairly sugary/ sweet. None of the beers were offensive, though none were at all inspiring. Only worth a visit for the brewpub factor.
Friday night: crowded, no flights, beer served in Tuborg plastic glass. Anything positive to say? Yes, there was great live music and a lively atmosphere. Saturday afternoon: hardly any customers inside, Happy Hour from 16.00-18.00 and most important to me: 5 x 10 cl for 35 kroner. A bargain! (normal price is 65 kroner) Great beers? Not at all, but five new beers!

Looks like a posh British pub. Nice wooden interior with some hunting trophies on the wall.
Located just opposite from Tivoli and not far from central staion.
A bit high prices and not actually that good beer.
But well worth a visit. You can get some small tasters instead of a pint of everyone :-D

Had a breakfast here (actually without knowing it was Vesterbro Bryghus). After that visited The Old English Pub next door and had some Vesterbro brews to get impression. Quite big place but not very cozy or authentic.
Another visit to this place. Eating again. Ordered beer tasting (5 samples) and got Vesterbro Blond Lager, Amber Lager, Julebryg and India Pale Ale and CARLSBERG. Food was good beer wasn’t.
If you are a ticker, and proud of it, this is a nice place for some new ticks. But be prepared for mediocre beers, and only in 0,5 l servings. For everyone else, better beer and service across the street at Apollo. Vesterbro Bryghus have one of the best locations in Copenhagen, nice interior, which reminds me of an English pub. But the service could for sure be better, and as for the beers, easy forgotten
Visited the lastest time on July 11, 2009. They opened late during the summer, so hit several other places first, didn’t arrive at the brewpub until well after they stop selling their sample plate, which was at 10 or 10.30 pm. The nice girl behind the bar got us the plate anyway though, very nice service for that. Had 4 beers in when we visited, all of which was fairly boring. Lon gbar in the upstairs room, nice cellar space as well. Haven’t tried eating.
Just out of KBV’s train station, so you may as well stop by with the sampler tray being one of the cheapest around, but really, it’s a tourist spot with prices being unveiled in 6 different currencies on the bill... Cold hangout with under average beers.
