How much do tickets cost?

Visit our Tickets page for all pricing. General admission includes access to the festival and unlimited 2oz samples from the breweries of your choice. VIP admission includes all of the above with a larger sampling glass, 1 hour early admission, plus a Mikkeller/Copenhagen Beer Festival gift.

Do I need tokens again this year?

No, all attendees are given unlimited sampling this year.

I see you have very rare beers at this event, will I be guaranteed to get to try all of them?

If your top priority is to try as many rare beers as possible, let us recommend the VIP ticket. It allows you early access to the event, so you can beat the crowds and have first access to hard to get beers. If you have GA ticket, we expect to have enough of each beer to last each session, but in some instances with very popular beers, they may run out.

When will the full beer lineup be available?

The beer lineup is now available at copenhagenbeerfest.com/beer  
Please note the beer lineup is subject to change at any time.

Are all the beers the same at each session?

No. Each brewer will rotate one or two styles per session, making each session unique.

Can I come if I am under 21 and not drink?

Unfortunately not. This event is strictly 21+, and all patrons will be ID checked and wristbanded prior to entering. If you are coming from out of state or from outside the US, please bring a passport and a second form of ID to be admitted to the event. Parents are not allowed to accompany any minors into the event.
