non-alcoholic beer mikkeller lunch smørrebrød restaurant kronborg

We are delighted to be able to offer Drink’in the Sun to those of our guests who prefer a non-alcoholic beer. Drink’in the Sun is a perfect match for our flavour-filled fish “smørrebrød” but it is also great with our classic “smørrebrød” favourites, like roast beef with remoulade and fresh horseradish.

It took a special kind of yeast before the acclaimed Danish micro-brewery, Mikkeller, was able to produce Drink’in the Sun, their first non-alcoholic beer to actually taste good.

RECIPE: “SUMMER VENISON” WITH GOOSEBERRY COMPOTE AND REDCURRANTS

recipes venison smørrebrød danish traditional food restaurant kronborg

We had the good fortune to get some haunches of the popular Danish “summer venison” and serve them, quite simply, with gooseberry compote and redcurrants.
The season is quite short so we invite you to enjoy them now – preferably with a full-bodied King’s County Brown Ale from Nørrebro Bryghus.

The season for the popular Danish  “summer venison” is short so we recommend you enjoy the tasty meat while you can.
We like to serve the venison as traditional “smørrebrød” with a tangy gooseberry compote and sugary redcurrants.

This traditional gooseberry compote (or gooseberry ‘porridge’, as we call it in Danish) is always popular when we have it on the specials board. We are happy to share the recipe if you would like to try it at home.
