Carlsberg, the fifth biggest brewery in the world originates from Copenhagen and is one of the largest Danish companies. At the visitor center in Valby, just outside the city center, is the Carlsberg Beer Museum. As part of the museum they have some Dutch brewery horses.  The horses and wagens still parade around Copenhagen  from time to time.

What a look! Found this little photo in an imported vintage Danish chest of drawers.. 1960's Danish fab teens enjoying a smorgasbord of beer. And that's not a big bottle of water either!

The Carlsberg Brewery may be the best big brewery tour I have ever taken.  The visitors center adjacent to the brewery has some fascinating exhibits which explain the history of Danish beer and the history of the Jacobsen’s family brewery.  Carlsberg beer is served in every single restaurant and bar in Denmark.  But the Carlsberg influence is even more pervasive than its domination of the country's taps.  Carl Jacobsen built an art gallery for Copenhagen and paid for the restoration of…

HI! What did you end up doing for Valentine’s Day?! Josh and I ended up having a chill night in, made double-decker tacos, drank some beer and watched TABOO. He’s more into that show than I am; I usually fall asleep like 20 minutes in but I do think the time it takes place sort of fascinating...

Wish I Designed It: Berliner Weisse by Mikkeller   Last week I came across a display of Berliner Weisse by Danish brewery Mikkeller. Mikkeller has always had a quirky design to their beer cans but these cans stood out to me.    I love the fruit pattern that wraps the can with a faux “Hello My Name Is” sticker attached, which pop off the clean, white background. Berliner Weisse-style beers are on the sour side, which is indicated in bright colors.   I’m a big fan of Mikkeller’s illustrative…

Christmas Liver Pâté   December 8th.  Liver pâté is a big part of the Danish Christmas celebration, especially  for the christmas lunches. Most workplaces throw a Julefrokost, aka  christmas lunch. It might not be during normal lunch hour, but more likely  a big party at night including food and a lot of beer and snaps. I've been  to large events, with stand-up comedians and live music. At a traditional  julefrokost/christmas lunch one of the dishes will most likely be warm  liver pâté with…
