    Not just Carlsberg

    Old pub in Copenhagen

    Not just Carlsberg. There are many different Danish beers, do try them! My favourite is Tuborg. You can look out for Christmasbeer during the right time, and also Easter Beer. There are many different breweries in Copenhagen.

    Buy beer before 8 o´clock at night

    If you want to buy alcoholic beverages in a Supermarket it must be done before eight o´clock at night! After eight it is not allowed for the shopowners to sell you alcohol. So, if you are planning a picnic or party in one of the many beautiful parks in Copenhagen do your shopping before eight o´clock!

    Carlsberg Beer

    I don't think it's delivered door-to-door by the wagon shown in the photo, but I do know that this is one of the best known beer brands in Denmark, and the world in general. I snapped this photo in Radhusplasden.

    Open container laws and liquor store hours

    Tuborg Beer

    One thing I loved about Copenhagen was that it's perfectly legal to walk around drinking a bottle of beer in public. I can't think of anyplace in the United States where this is allowed except for New Orleans, and even in Europe I don't believe it is very common. This can make a relaxing stroll around the city in the evening even more enjoyable.

    However, I was shocked to learn that stores stop selling alcohol at 5:00 pm on weekdays and 8:00 pm on weekends. You really have to plan ahead and buy your beer early if you want to take advantage of the permissive open container laws, so you might want to keep a cooler handy to prevent your beer from getting warm.

    'There's a Faxe for you!'

    by CliffClaven Written Aug 24, 2002

    There was a time when old Cliffie trained the little Clavens to shout 'Dad, there's a fax for you' every time they came up from the cellar - but Mrs Claven soon cottoned on to the fact that the fax machine wasn't in the cellar and that the fax for Dad was in fact a can of Faxe, Denmark's third biggest brewery after Carlsberg and Tuborg. The Danes claim that they brew the best beer in the world. Well, it's a matter of taste - but old Cliffie certainly isn't going to argue with any Dane willing to send him a Faxe to prove his point.
