While the Danes aren’t as famous for their beers as the Belgians, Dutch, or Germans, they are off to a good start with Mikkel Borg Bjergsø’s ‘Mikkeller’ Brewery.

Voted twice as the best Danish Brewery by the association of Danish Beer Enthusiasts, Mikkeller is obviously a place that you need to visit while you’re in town. While you can find their bottled beers in many stores, a visit to their downstairs bar in the Vesterbro neighborhood of Copenhagen is worth the trip.

We sampled their witbeer (‘not just another wit’) and an imperial/IPA style beer, ‘I beat you’. The former was about 4.5%abv and the latter about 9.5%. Both were excellent. I’m not that familiar with beer-tasting lingo, but the witbeer I would have any time, and the I beat you was delicious for such a strong beer. Neither of these beers is light on taste – and both have some interesting aromas that I haven’t seen in beers before.

The bar is fairly small, with concrete walls and floor, and small wooden tables – not the most comfortable place in the world, but after a few ‘I beat you’s, you probably won’t care.

Definitely this place should be on your list to visit while in Copenhagen.
