The Danish Beer Enthusiasts aren’t satisfied by the selection of beer avaliable in shops, so they invite you to try beers by over 40 exhibitors at an annual celebration of the beverage in the hopes you’ll help expand the market.
There will be plenty of tasting opportunities of beer in all its forms – including ice cream – and there is an actual stage shining the spotlight on beer during live demonstrations.
You purchase tokens at the festival that can be exchanged for a taste of beer between 5 and 10 cl. Each token costs 12.5 kroner, which is cheaper than last year’s 200 for ten tasters deal and means you can buy the exact number of tokens you want.
Additionally, buying an advanced ticket enables you to enter the festival an hour earlier than thosebuying at the door.
It should be noted that the festival has a policy on drunks, so leave the laddish drinking culture behind.
The exhibitors will not only showcase their regular selection but also an assortment of beers created especially for the festival. The booths are often staffed by the brewers themselves, ready to answer any burning questions you might have.
Held for 15 years now, the event is first and foremost a salute to beer, which is why members of the Danish Beer Enthusiasts and several other European beer associations receive five free tokens – an offer that is open to members who join during the festival.
