Switching on the beer nozzles at the industrial estate
It’s hard to make drinking on an industrial estate look in any way respectable, but somehow Danske Ølentusiaster have managed it with the Copenhagen Beer Festival. Taking place from May 19-21 at Lokomotivværkstedet – a massive former railway shed in the south of Copenhagen – the beer festival attracted over 60 brewers and an untold number of guests keen to sample their wares.
The size of the venue thinned the numbers of those guests out somewhat and made the event look slightly less spectacular. However, they all gathered round to watch this group of men making very loud noises whilst pouring liquid nitrogen into a keg.
A little corner of Somerset set out its stall with The Cider House – headed by Somerset native Duncan McArthur (above centre) and his wife Rikke Høst (above left) – serving up all manner of premium ciders imported from his homeland accompanied by a substantial block of mature cheddar.
Hats off to the dedication at the Schiøtz stand. No surprise to learn they do a great IPA!
These three are known as The Mayor, The Psychopath and The Nun. And there were rumours of a seven-foot panda on the loose.
