Quick disclaimer: we visited this place over a year ago. I wrote the story so I thought it was worth posting. The post has not been edited by Natasha, so it may just be the ramblings of a Dyslexic madman. Ok that is a pretty strong statement to start this post off with and over the next few paragraphs, I will try to back up that statement.

We did, however, make it out to Fermentoren, a hidden away beer bar in the vicinity of the Meat Packing District of Vesterbro in Copenhagen.
Taphouse is a new bar concept brought to you by the people that brought us Brewerkz. It is located in Dempsey Hill, which usually I don’t go to often as the price range is not accessible to us – Dempsey seems more like a rich person’s playground, judging by the kind of hardware you see up there. Thankfully, Taphouse is much more accessible to the regular man.
