Perfectionist Brewpub: Nørrebro Bryghus

Some don't do compromises. Nørrebro Bryghus offers great beers and good food in a stylish setting. Located in a former metal factory in Nørrebro, conveniently close to Ølbaren and the great little beer shop Høkeren, the venue is rather big, with a beer bar in the basement and a restaurant upstairs. For the latter you can reserve a table on their web site, which is probably a good idea.

They offer the whole range from Belgian specialties to extreme beers from the US West Coast- and they do them all very well.

On the picture is the Furesø Framboise- a Belgian wit with raspberries. In my opinion, a great little beer, with harmonious raspberry flavours. Not overpowering, just subtle raspberry flavours like only Belgians do it.

Now you can even buy three of their regulars on bottle-a better souvenir from Copenhagen is hard to think of.

Recently (and quite naturally, in my opinion) the brewpub has teamed up with another uncompromising brewer, Nøgne Ø from Norway, to create the Double Knot Brown- the first Nordic guest brew. According to the importer Ale-Consult it is a cousin of the Nøgne Ø Imperial Brown Ale, tasted at the festival and truly a beer to build an empire around.

After a hard night out at nearby Ølbaren, a civilised brunch at Nørrebro Bryghus makes you believe in redemption. None of us may be perfect, but at least you can get a taste of perfectionism.
