From the success of hipster kings Mikkeller to the plethora of small brewers turning out big flavours, Danish craft beer is experiencing a golden age.
The embarrassment of riches for Denmark’s beer drinkers was on full display at the 2015 Copenhagen Beer Festival, with more than 1,000 brews on tap. Brewers from all corners of Denmark brought their best stouts, porters, IPAs, pilsners and much more to Lokomotivværkstedet, a train workshop that has been converted to a multi-use facility in the heart of Copenhagen.
Put on by the Danish Beer Enthusiasts (Danske Ølentusiaster), the Beer Festival is in its 15th year and is bigger than ever. The majority of the 100-plus breweries on hand were Danish, giving the event a real domestic flavour but there were also offerings from the US, the UK, Belgium, Germany, Iceland and more.
