A visit to Copenhagen #dkblogger [VIDEOS]

A love of Mikkeller beer is a deep one. That love won me a trip to Copenhagen, courtesy of Visit Denmark for a Scavenger Hunt! I am here. Now. And I’m blogging and tweeting my experience as I go along as much as I can too. My love drives me a bit scatty sometimes, so sooner I jumped off the plane with my fellow winners (and new mates) Macca, Jen and Emma, I vanished into the summer sunshine. Having never visited a Mikkeller bar before, I headed off to meet James at Mikkeller & Friends. And have a beer and just hang out for a while. Check out the video of our chat

I drank one of the To øl’s F**k Art, Let’s Dance Series, a cheeky little 8.3% Belgian tripel, aged in red wine barrels. James told me about the raison d’être for the crazy name and I’ll post that video up in the coming days. Needless to say the beer was nuts, delicious, a combination of a complex Belgian beer, sweet & heady coupled with the sour, vinous nature coming from the red wine barrel effect. Dry and with a real light bitterness which suit palates sensitive to bitterness down to a tee. Sounds like a weird combination but it was strangely beautiful in my mouth.

But I’m not just here for the beer, though I had a lot of suggestions from Twitter peeps of wonderful bars to visit here in Copenhagen (wish I had the time, but we’re only here til tomorrow lunchtime). We’re in art hotel, Hotel Fox! Every room has it’s own theme: mine is extraordinary. You only have to see the video to understand!

The best part about last night was being in a thousand strong crowd of people to see a stunning local rock band called Kashmir, on the live stage at a free open air gig inside Tivoli Gardens.

So it’s Saturday, I’ve got ‘Smushi’ lined up (I have NO clue!), maybe some shopping, more Scavenger Hunting – picking out the best sights I see in Copenhagen – and more beer (of course!) I’m planning to take the guys for some craft beer.

To see mine, Macca’s (@maccathegapper), Jen’s (@Jlowthrop) and Emma’s (@gohemiantravel) and tweets & other pics about CPH this weekend, just search for #DKBlogger!!
