øj-dag & grand opening

Thursday, 31. October from kl. 16

every year on the thursday before j-dag beer enthusiasts across denmark celebrate the release of many different christmas beers released by the craft breweries across denmark, and the world.

from more traditional christmas ales to christmas ipa’s – this is a world away from the more common christmas beers you generally find being released on j-dag.

so, if you would like to try something different this 31. oktober, join us at the cat and barrel, there will be a number of both tap & bottled christmas beers to try.

we will also be joined by Marton from Mad Scientist brewery in hungary and Niels from Flaneur Liquids…

hello vejle !

We hear that you are ready to take a journey into the world of craft beers – we will be bringing you 20 taps of great beers, from breweries local and far.

Each week you will find new beers on tap, whilst some of our beers are fairly permenant fixtures, others will come and go very quickly…

As well as plenty of beers on tap, we will have a good range of bottled beers, whisk(e)y, bourbon, rum, gin and more. We also stock both Alcohol Free and Gluten Free beers.

There will be plenty of oppertunity to join us for tastings, for tap take overs and for events with the people behind the beers – brewers, ambassadors, importers and enthusiasts.

We are hoping everything will be ready for friday, 25th october – but we still have a couple of challenges ahead !

In the meantime, join us on facebook, and be the first to know when we have more news !
