Bad Seed Brewing (DK)
Ghost Brewing (DK)
Slowburn Brewing Co-op is an independent, worker-owned microbrewery in Hvidovre, Denmark.
We brew a wide variety of beer styles, with a focus on quality and drinkability. Whether you enjoy crisp lagers, heavily-hopped IPAs, rich stouts, or funky mixed fermentation beers, we strive to make something for every palate.
Currently, Slowburn consists of two founding members:
Amalie has a background in cooking and a heart which beats for all things fermented. She started one of the first kombucha breweries in Copenhagen and entered the world of beer through homebrewing and continuous sampling. She has worked as a beertender and with craft beer import and distribution, and thought it was about time to apply these skills with beers of her own creation. At Slowburn, she is juggling sales, assisting in brewing, and administrating the brewery.
Stefano is a biotechnologist who jumped ship to beer production (lucky beverage!). Before moving to Copenhagen, he worked as a brewer in his home country, Italy. Never forgetting his roots, he focuses on the science of beer, with quality as his mission. He is the head brewer of Slowburn and works like an octopus on everything from recipe development, brewing, cellaring and packaging, to being a regular MacGyver around the brewery.
Ugly Duck Brewing Co (DK)
Founded in 2012, Ugly Duck is the wild child of Danish brewery Indslev. After six years of success brewing exclusive wheat beers, Indslev wanted a new laboratory for concocting bold, high-quality craft beers of all types. They built the lab and named it Ugly Duck – and we’ve been breaking rules and pushing limits ever since. We’ve brewed almost every type of beer at Ugly Duck, with creativity and great taste as our only guiding stars. That’s the way we like it too. It’s just the way we roll.
We’re proud of the awards our beers have won, and we’re happy to tell the world about it. From 2012, to 2014, we won “Best Danish New Beer of the Year” awards in the “Below 6% ABV” category every year. Two of the award-winners were IPAs, and one was a Brown Ale. In the “Above 6%” category in 2012, we took 1st Place, beating over 600 other great beers for the honor. We’ve won a number of other awards in Denmark and beyond, and we think we’re still just getting started. The most important thing is the quality of the beers, and the people who drink them.
