After waiting almost 2 years the news of these allegations couldn’t have come at a worse time (we’re now just 4 days away from travelling) and with so many UK and American breweries pulling out it looked at one point like the fate of the festival hung in the balance.
But I’m friends with a guy on Facebook (Tony Trondhjem Sørensen) and he says that even though the brewers have pulled out and won’t be attending in person their beers will still be available only they’ll be served by the volunteers (Tony being one) rather than the brewer themselves (as at other stands)
The festival itself only takes up 4 hours of our 4 day trip (we have green tickets for Saturday 4pm - 8pm) so there’ll be plenty more to see and do on our mini break to Copenhagen.
Mikkeller put a statement out yesterday and in it they said that people can receive a full refund if they decide not to attend (something they never offered all through Covid) they also said that despite the struggles they intended to make this the best festival yet with them sharing some rare beers from their cellars as a thank you to those still visiting.
Whatever happens it will like you say be a very enjoyable experience, one I’ll report back on.
