If you’re among the many people who have acquired a taste for the smaller breweries’ products, then combine a trip to South Zealand and Møn with a tour of some of the region’s microbreweries. Start, for example, with a visit to Gavnø Castle Brewery at Næstved, where you have Denmark’s only castle brewery. The brewery, housed in beautiful historic farm buildings from the 1800s, features beer tastings in combination with a recounting of the history of the brewery, the brewing process and the history of beer in general.
In Næstved itself, you can visit the Kongebryg microbrewery, which is in a former ammunition bunker. Kongebryg, or King’s Brew, is more than a brewery, it’s also one of the town’s most popular venues, where the brewery’s beer can be enjoyed to the sound of hard rock.
The brewery Næstved Bryghus is another of the town’s microbreweries. From time to time, the brewery holds open house events (see the brewery’s website), and also arranges private tours for groups.
From Næstved you can continue the trip to Stege and visit Byghuset Møn, where the beer is made from local ingredients. The same is true of Mjødgård, Mead Farm, in Stevns. Here you have the opportunity to experience the traditional crafts and taste the golden nectar, produced solely from raw materials gathered, picked or harvested in Stevns. Regular open house days are scheduled in the summer season, as well as private mead tastings at unique locations in Stevns.
