Thursday, 2008 May 22: Plan B is Plan A

Yesterday: Wasted



I'm feeling a little better this morning. I endured a bowl of breakfast cereal with only moderate discomfort. After catching up a bit of typing, I wandered around town for almost an hour while housekeeping made up the hotel room. (They didn't get a chance yesterday.)



"Plan A" today is to meet Jacob at Plan B, a beer bar he highly recommends. I emailed him asking to delay our meeting from 1:00 to 3:00, just so I could be sure everything was going to stay put.



Plan B is a neat little neighborhood bar with the most amazing beer selection I've seen anywhere. Great beers in the bar coolers and on the eight taps, great beers in the cellar below the bar, and fantastic rare beers in the cellar across the street.

The beers here are expensive, just like everywhere else in town. Typical bottle prices are 30 to 50 DKK ($6.32-$10.54). A 22-ounce bottle of Great Divide Yeti was listed at 125 DKK ($26.34). These are the ones I tried:




Bov Stout




Wiibroe Imperial Stout




De Regenboog 't Smisje Halloween




Thisted Limfjords Porter




Rodenbach Vin de Céréal




Vetter Alt-Heidelberger 33 (a 33°P, 11.5% abv monster)




St. Sixtus Westvleteren Blonde (DKK95 = $20.02 for this 30-cl bottle)



In addition, Jacob kindly shared a very special bottle of Amager Imperial Stout. This beer had been aged for three months in Stranahans Colorado Whiskey casks. Very nice beer.



One last beer after we returned to the hotel: the can of Żywiec Strong that I had picked up at the Warsaw airport.

I am definitely feeling better now.



Tomorrow: Vesterbro, more Plan B, and Nørrebro
