Mid-May Events 1: Mikkeller has you covered

Mikkeller Beer Celebration

May 12-13, open 10:00-20:00; Øksnehallen, Halmtorvet 11, Cph V; 500kr; mikkeller.dk/festivals 

Following Mikkeller Beer Week (May 8-12), more than 80 brewers from all over the world are heading to Øksnehallen for two days of non-stop beer sampling of the rarest and craziest one-off beers of the season.

Beware! Get there early because “when the kegs are empty, they are empty” – which sounds a bit mean given they’re asking for 500 kroner to enter.

After six successful beer celebrations at Øksnehallen, this is fast becoming one of the most popular beer festivals in the world. Tickets are selling fast so sign up soon!
