Practical Information

Smoking Regulations

You are not allowed to smoke on the Beer Festival's indoor premises - this includes e-cigarettes! - but in the garden of LOKOMOTIVVÆRKSTEDET we will have smoking areas.

Alcohol Policy

It might seem contradictory having an alcohol policy at the Beer Festival it is, however, far from the case.

We wish for our guests to enjoy their visit completely and that experiencing the world of beer will be a good and educational one. This is why visibly drunk persons will not be allowed inside the festival and why we reserve the right to say ‘goodbye’ if some of the guests become a nuisance to other guests or exhibitors.



It is possible to buy hot meals prepared with beer, Danish open sandwiches, sandwiches, hot dogs, coffee and soft drinks.
