The Christmas Brew is coming

The Christmas brew is first sold on the first Friday in November and its arrival is celebrated all over the country.

They say the first snowflake has fallen over Denmark when the Christmas brew is launched. The streets are filled with joy and Christmas spirit. 

This particular day is also known as J-Day (J stands for julebryg, which translates to Christmas brew in English) and is a symbol of the upcoming holiday.

A tradition

The first drop of Christmas brew hits the bars and clubs at 20:59 on the first Friday in November.
