Copenhagen Beer Celebration

Cheers from Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014, where I’ve met my old friends Mikkeller, To Öl and more (Carlsberg? What’s that?).

Although the hall offered fantastic brews, eventually we grew tired of the noisy place after several hours and went to Mikkeller bar and its twin Mikkeller & Friends, as well as the nice Mikropolis. As a bonus we found one of the best pizzas in town, so good I had to visit twice (hi Stefano, I will be back).

Apart from beer-related activities I managed to revisit Christiania. It’s been almost 15 years since my last visit to this peculiar area and many things have changed. Back then the merchandise was being sold from open tables on Pusher street. Now they were covered in a kind of booths and the sellers hid their faces in masks. I sat down on a bench in the middle of it all and reflected on the existence of this place. What will it look like in another 15 years?

All in all, a great weekend in the capital of Denmark.

Mikkeller at CBC Mikkeller naturally had a prominent position as one of the arrangers.
Omnipollo at CBC Omnipollo offered some of the best brews of the weekend, with Nebolution and Astral among my favorites.
Mikkeller Lots of good stuff at Mikkeller & Friends.
Mikkeller Outdoor party on Sunday morning (!) outside Mikkeller bar. The CBC circus is in town.
