When I was putting together my Links page, one of the first places that sprung to mind was the Nørrebro Bryghus (literally, the North Bridge Brewery House). It’s a decent enough establishment, but its beers are what really set it apart. Served in substantial “storre” (large) sizes (I presume they do a small too, but I’ve never had cause to investigate that), they are the epitome of what a local brewery should be.
Eric (above, my language school buddy from Houston, Texas) and I went for lunch after school today, probably to fight off a general malaise that we both feel about learning Danish at the moment. I put it down to the onset of winter, because I suspect we’re both learning much more than we give ourselves credit for. Either way, a trip to the Bryghus is always a treat.
So a couple of large Nørrebro øl (that’s Danish for beer) set us straight and gave us the Dutch (Danish?) courage to practice some vocab on the staff there. Mine was the dark Julbrygge (click the link for more on Christmas beers) on the left, and Eric’s is the lighter, licorice flavoured brew on the right. Sterling stuff and if you’re visiting Copenhagen I’d wholeheartedly recommend it.
