The festival brings breweries from the entire the country together while focusing on Danish beer, the countrys many breweries and beer as a important part of pur traditions and culture.

Copenhagen Beer Week is organized by Food Organisation of Denmark and the festival is supported by a number of Danish breweries.

The purpose of Copenhagen Beer Week is to

  • Profile and strengthen the Danish craft beer scene, here at home and abroad
  • Manifest Copenhagen as a capital of craft beers 
  • Ensure turnover and attention for both breweries and the other gastro-players who are fighting to get back on their feet after Covid-19
  • Motivate new collaborations between beer and gastronomy

The program during Copenhagen Beer Week is filled with different beer-experiences across the city's many bars, restaurants, museums, galleries, laboratories and cultural institutions. 

Tracks in the program

The program contains three main theme tracks and our own Beer Square, ØlTorvet, at Israels Plads. 

Beer and the city
Copenhagen Beer Week is for everyone, who wants to explore new tastes and learn more about danish craft beers. No matter if you consider yourself a connoisseur or recently interested in the universe of beer - we are sure, that we have something to offer you.

We invite you to dive into a versatile program of sensual, fun, quirky, educational and culinary events in Copenhagen when we will be making the whole city foam with beer. 

Beer and food
Copenhagen Beer Week has a special focus on the interaction between beer and food.
How do taste evolve, when we pair craft beer with the meal on our plates? And which flavors seem to be complimenting each other and why? 

We wish to change the perception of beer and make more people (re)discover beer as the perfect companion to food and gastronomy. 

Beer and culture
Copenhagen Beer Week has an ambition to be a platform for knowledge and a wide range of relevant debates, tastings, challenges and future possibilities. Therefore we seek to create a space, where brewers, researchers and professionals contribute with wisdom, learning and curiosity. Because beer is not just beer...

As an organizer during Copenhagen Beer Week you have the opportunity of adding to the program. We especially applaud when more players find ways to work together in new collaborations and we are happy to mediate contact and find great matches.
