The full pour
There is an awful lot of Mikkeller-love on this website. Quite simply, though, it's hard to tour Copenhagen's urban beer fabric without giving some credit where credit is due. With extensive acclaim, including a "Best Copenhagen Bar" title under their belt, Mikkeller Bar is one of the most shining concepts from the famed gypsy brewer. It feels elegant, but not pretentious. Cozy, but not small. There is something "just right" about the thoughtful design and ambience here that nourishes the soul, analogous to the very concept of Danish hygge. There are delicious beers, there are candles, there are happy people and there is an indescribable charm.
Why is this on THL?
Mikkeller bar is an excellent way to dive right into Danish beer culture. This is the spot where those expertly-honed Mikkeller instincts come together in their finest presentation. With 20 taps of both Mikkeller and guest beers, the variety is also quite nice for the size of the space. All you need to know is that this one lives up to the reputation, and is a prerequisite for the rest of your Copenhagen curriculum. Just bring some quality friends, or meet some new ones, and let the warm goodness of this experience run it's course.
