Do you like beer? Do you like whisky? Then come and sample a fantastic collection at the inaugural Copenhagen Beer and Whisky Festival this week.

The festival, which takes place at Forum from August 25-27, offers a wide range of top quality beer, whisky and rum – from the big hitting brands to local up-and-coming breweries and distilleries.

“At the festival it will be possible to taste gourmet food and other delicious delicacies that match perfectly with beer, whisky and rum,” the festival organisers wrote on Facebook.

“And if you want to learn more about the golden droplets, there are plenty of exciting lectures, beer-schools and masterclasses at hand.”
