Forget Noma - Nørrebro Bryghus Is Where You Need To Be
Beer aficionados, listen up.
I'd be willing to bet that your ale-induced reveries often took you to a place almost too good to be true, where the homemade beers not only rocked your socks but also your taste buds with a mouth-watering, upscale menu.
Dream no longer, dear friends. And head to Copenhagen.
The owner of Nørrebro Bryghus, Anders Kissmeyers, founded this brewery in the hopes of broadening the visitor's taste for Danish beer and improve their palate by offering high-quality, memorable products and an easy access to the brewing process. Mission accomplished.
Anyone who knows me will tell you that I am by no means a fan of beer, but the sheer atmosphere and dedication of the Nørrebro Bryghus employees made me giddy with excitement. With reason - this dinner was one of the most memorable experiences of my life, both on the alcohol and food level.
I opted for the 3 course and 4 beers dinner - good food, good beers, and lots of fun, at affordable prices by Danish standards.

Drink Beer. Save The Planet.
Try the frothy Globe Ale bottled at Nørrebro Bryghus restaurant and brewery in Copenhagen. The eco-friendly establishment is housed inside a retrofitted old metal foundry, and it offers scheduled tours as well as beer tastings.
Like many things in Copenhagen, Globe Ale is carbon neutral because the owners pay for carbon offsets while you’re getting a buzz doing your best trying to pronounce “Nørrebro Bryghus.”
“When people come to Copenhagen, they’re going to get a green holiday whether they want it or not,” asserts Ulrika Mårtensson, my liaison with the Wonderful Copenhagen tourism office during our lunch together.
Try the pork baked in Bombay Pale Ale and served with apple compote.
