Following last year’s LCBO Brewery Features of Dieu du Ciel! and Harviestoun, the first feature of 2011 is about to hit the shelves.  Nørrebro Bryghus, the acclaimed brewery from Copenhagen, Denmark, will see five of their beers released in 25 LCBO stores starting the first week of February.

The lineup of Nørrebro coming to stores is very exciting: Bombay Pale Ale (600 mL, $7.50), Julebryg (600 mL, $7.50), Vartripel 2010 (600 mL, $9.35), La Granja Stout (600 mL, $10.15) and Little Korkny Ale (600 mL, $21.95).  The selection represents a great diversity of styles, from pale ale to Belgian-style tripel and barley wine.  Of note is the La Granja Stout, of which this batch is brewed with Ontario maple syrup from Frank Higgins in Combermere and being exclusively sold in the province.  All of the beers are making their in-store debut in Ontario with this release.

Danish beers have been growing in popularity over the last few years – in 2009 beerbistro hosted a memorable Danish beer dinner featuring Nørrebro and Mikkeller, with Anders Kissmeyer of Nørrebro (pictured on the right) in attendance.  These breweries have been at the forefront of a Danish craft beer movement featuring bold and interesting products, and now Ontario beer drinkers can try some for themselves.

The Brewery Feature program is a quarterly initiative of the LCBO to highlight a specific brewery in a limited number of stores.  The stores that the Nørrebro will be available at are listed after the jump.  You can discuss this feature and other beery topics in our Discussion Forum.
