Cozy little place with outside seating. A handful of taps with Fanø brews and an array of boxes with current Fanø releases to pick and mix from. All of which appear to be in the fridge too to drink on site. A few bottles from other brewers too ( I noticed Ugly Duck and Howling Monkey). Prices are good, I walked away with a bunch of new ticks and a couple of old favorites which were on sale.
Visited at the slumber party :-).. Lovely small island pub, cosy atmosphere with all the brewing stuff in the back of the pub. . Upstairs a smal seating area as well. Close to the beach, and with parking spaces nearby. Several beers on tap and some nice beers on bottles as well. For sure worth a revisit, and if you are on Fanø you have to visit :-)
I visited this place a few times during a recent touristic visit and based on the selection of high quality beer and the fact that it’s brewed on site I would be hard pressed to think of a more interesting place for a craft beer visit in the region of Southern Denmark. Perhaps the likes of the Esbjerg pub Dronning Louise and the Kolding pub "You’ll Never Walk Alone" would match it since they carry local microbrew as well but the beer at Fanø is just on a different level. Worth a detour if you’re in the Esbjerg area. About the ambience: It gives some nice ambience that the serving area is inside the brewery production area giving you the opportunity to follow the process somewhat and maybe ask a question or two of the brewer. Always a plus. In case of good weather there’s the option to sit on the terrace under parasols. However, the proximity to the trafficked road and the immediate surroundings detract a bit from this part of the ambience. Serving staff are knowledgeable and service minded. The selection on tap is somewhat conventional as they carry their best selling "mainstream beers" on the first four or five taps, while an additional two taps allow for more experimental beers. It’s even possible to get a tasting menu of five 1 dl glasses for 59 DKK. Furthermore, a fridge gives you the opportunity to explore some of the more rare specialty beers that the brewery has made recently. Unfortunately, a drink-in fee of 20 DKK put a bit of a dampener on the urge to drink these on site as you might as well bring them home and save the fee. If you see something from the fridge you like I’d encourage you to buy it on the spot and not wait a day or two. As I had the impression that turnover from the fridge wasn’t terribly high I waited until the day of our departure to stock up on bottles with the result that all the bottles I was interested in had been sold out in the interim period.
Small cozy taproom infront the brewery, and a small seating on the first floor aswell. Really friendly, knowable and helpfull service. 5 taps and about 20 bottles to choose from when we visited, all of very high quality.

I went here for the Farmer’s Cabinet Meet the Brewer Event with travlr, and it was a lovely visit to the brewery. Ryan was so hospitable and welcoming, even though he hates Danes and Ünges. The beers here are obviously very hard to beat - everything is to high quality, and they carry beers from Fanø, Evil Twin, Mikkeller, Stillwater - just about anything that’s been brewed there recently. Ryan and his family was kind enough to invite us into their house to have dinner, not only was it extremely generous, the food was also very good! Obviously this is a place to go to drink some of the best beer brewed in the entire country, but also to meet some very good people! Cheers!
We were in the neighborhood and popped in for the Meet the Brewer event with Terry from Cabinet Artisinal. We were treated like royalty, 10 is not a high enough score for Service! Ryan was extremely generous with the beers and his wife made fantastic food. The setting is amazing, even when it rained, as the tables and tasting area are an integral part of the cozy brewery space. A must visit while in Denmark.
