The Best Beer Bars in Copenhagen:

Mikkeller 

Mikkeller owns this beer place – one of the first microbreweries in Copenhagen. Its success has enabled it to expand into other parts of the world, reaching the United States and Asia. It is located in Refshæløen, next to Reffen – the most prominent street food market in Scandinavia. Further, the brand offers various fruited wild ales, rustic saisons, and other experimental styles. Giant oak barrels containing fermented beverages create a perfect setting to explore new flavours and types of beer. Lastly, their knowledgeable bartenders always complete the experience with recommendations from their unique beer menu.
