In early November, I had the opportunity to get to know the city of Copenhagen, Denmark with a slew of other travel bloggers. As a part of the journey, another blogger and I hit the streets to make a video about the city. In doing so, we discovered that that very day happened to be the annual launch of the country’s famous Christmas beer. Filled with curiosity (wouldn’t you be?), we set out to learn more about the famous celebration. One by one, we grilled the Danish folk on the streets, and got to the bottom of the beer-filled day (burp). Here’s the final, albeit slightly rusty, product!

With that, I leave you all for the holidays. I’m spending mine in the rainy San Francisco Bay Area. I look forward to sharing more adventures with you in 2011. Happy holidays!

    What a great way to kick-off the Christmas season! The Danes really know how to do it right. It beats trampling each other down at five in the morning on the day after Thanksgiving.

    As much as we all often complain that they start with the holiday decorations too early in the States, I just loved that Denmark was fully into it with their Christmas beer in early November. Perhaps if the decorations came with a beer launch, people would be more enthused about the season starting early.

    Never tried that beer, seems interesting. Haha so typical Danes to start the christmas holiday with a christmas beer!

    The beer honestly tasted the same to me, but then again, I never drink beer. I will apparently drink just about anything if it comes in a festive holiday can or bottle. I’m thinking future Christmas beers should be gingerbread or peppermint flavored. Who’s with me?
