The story of BRUS
In an old iron foundry and locomotive factory in Copenhagen, the engines are running again. Brand new brewing facilities, specialty products, bar buzz and an ambitious young chef’s team is breathing new life into the old warehouse.
The guys behind the brewery To Øl and Mikropolis bar have joined forces in creating a brewpub, restaurant, shop and bar in Copenhagen’s most lively and versatile neighborhood.
BRUS is the name of the place; a 750 m² raw building with activities ranging wide from brewing, kegging, cooking, shopping, dining and drinking. It all comes together in a sum of quality, science, experiments and functionality to create a playful venue for beer-lovers, microbrewers and hungry souls who fancy some socializing city life; a place with a constantly evolving range of experimental food and beverages.
The Danish name ‘BRUS’ refers to the sparkling quality liquid obtains when carbonated; the frizzy feeling of great brew. With production on-location, BRUS aims to be Copenhagen’s most ambitious microbrew and soft drink projects to date.
Our mission is to create a lively location for beer geeks, tonic treasurers and food fans and to offer our guests a whole new experience of going to a brewpub. We want to bring the experimental approach from craft beer production on to a wider and wilder selection of micro-brewed beverages.
We love testing new flavor compositions. We bring in the twining herb of hops to infuse our tonic, the aromatic scent of yuzu in our citrus fruit juice and fermentation techniques from craft beers on to a wider soft drink repertoire.
Our humble goal is to produce the best micro-brewed bottled beverages yet.
With fermentation tanks of 1000 liters capacity, we are able to produce small batches and many different varieties. With this we want to expand the limits for craft brewed special drinks and offer a whole new pallet of quality soft drinks to our guests.
With the brews of BRUS we want to raise the quality consciousness of a product, which has received little interesting improvement throughout the years. We believe that both kids and grown-ups are ready for new taste variations and more potent and strong soft drink flavors.
Set aside soft drinks, our vision is to create a whole new experience of visiting a brewpub. You will be seated in the midst of barrels and fermentation tanks – not to ride the strong wave of authenticity, but merely to stage and illuminate the essentials; the brewing facilities in particular. We won’t be barbecuing unless the sun is smoking and we can’t wait to get outside. Instead you will be served beautifully plated spontaneous food from the restaurant or preferably indulge in mouthwatering snackboards at the bar.
You’re able to grab a quick bite before going to the cinema next door, but you can also stay seated for a full meal. You can get drunk in craft beers or die trying from all the frizzyness of our soft drink collection. You might be able to take a quick dance on the tables, and when you recon it’s time to go home, you can easily slip by the shop for some bottle sampling for the home collection, essentials for the home-cooking or a snack selection you didn’t know you needed.
Brewery and products
13 fermentation tanks with capacity of 19.000 liters are brewing in the back of the pub.
70 oak barrels are set up in the very center of the building to store all of To Øl’s barrel-aged beer.
BRUS launches an independent product-line of sodas and softdrinks in the pub’s own name.
