In an old iron foundry and locomotive factory in Copenhagen, the engines are starting to run again. Brand new brewing facilities, specialty products, bar buzz and an ambitious young chef’s team are breathing new life into the old warehouse. The guys behind the brewery To Øl and Mikropolis Bar opened a 750 square meter brewpub, restaurant, and bar in the lively Nørrebro neighborhood last year.

With ambitions ranging wide from producing, brewing, cooking, eating, shopping and bar’ing, it all comes together in a sum of quality, science, experiments, ecology, and industry to create a playful venue for beer lovers, microbrewers, and hungry souls; a place with a constantly evolving range of experimental food and beverages. The Danish name Brus refers to the sparkling quality liquid obtains when carbonated; the frizzy feeling of great brew.

Like the rest of the house’s brewing experiments, the restaurant bears characteristics of a scientific and playful approach inspired by fermentation experiments from the craft beer world. The bar of the house serves a number of curated specialty beers and cocktails – mainly from To Øl’s and BRUS’ own production, but worldwide idols and friends are also featured on the taps and kegs. If you’re up for a quick stop or a drink to-go, the shop of the house will offer most drinks in to-go variations, freshly brewed coffee and a well-sourced variety of daily and specialty products.
