Take a Microbrewery and Distillery Tour in Koge Denmark

Most people who visit Copenhagen flock to Carlsberg Brewery or perhaps Copenhagen Distillery. However, if you want to visit a brewery and distillery off the beaten track, you should head south-west to the little town of Køge. Køge is home to Braunstein, a microbrewery and distillery established in 2005. If you are wondering why this Danish brewery has a German name, it’s because the founders’ family is originally from Austria and they still stay true to original Austrian brewing tradition today.

Braunstein isn’t generally open to the public but organizes guided tours and tastings every first Saturday of the month. Tickets cost 175 DKK per person and include the tour as well as a tasting card with which you can get 5 different samples of either beer or spirits.

You need to make reservations online, but pay when you arrive at the brewery. You then get put into groups and you may have to wait a little while before it’s your turn to tour the facilities. The tour leads you through all the production steps right up until the bottling of the beers. What’s particularly charming is the fact that the owners are giving the tours themselves. It’s lovely to see how passionate they are about their company and their products.

Afterward, you can use your stamp card to try some of their products. The spirit samples are rather small, but it’s not every day that you get to try Danish whiskey!
On location, you can also buy some fresh Danish sausages from the grill (which you might need after all that alcohol) and buy some of their products in the shop.
