Beers Behind Bars

Discover a world of beer at the old state prison in Horsens at this large, yearly beer festival. Bring your friends for a day where you get to choose from more than 350 different kinds of craft beer.

A True Eldorado of Exciting Beers

The selection of Danish beers is larger than ever. Likewise, the quality has improved with a multitude of new types of beer and taste nuances. Beers Behind Bars is a smorgasbord of tasty, golden drops.

FÆNGSLET (THE PRISON), Horsens & Friends, and Danish Beer Enthusiasts will fill the warehouse of the old prison building to the brim with more than 350 different beers, and more than 50 Danish and two international breweries of varying sizes will be present at the festival. Here, you will meet larger breweries, microbreweries, hand brewers and beer specialists.


How it Works

You can choose between a ticket for the entire day or buy an access pass for 4 hours. You will be given a tasting glass you can bring home after the festival. You can buy 10 beer tokens for a reasonable amount which enables you to taste a multitude of beers throughout the day.


Book Your Ticket

Sleep Behind Bars

Complete your experience with an overnight stay in one of the prison cells of the old hospital ward. Here you will find the hostel SleepIn. And even though the authenticity is intact with many visible mementoes from the inmates, you will be greeted by a much more comfortable experience than what the criminals of the past were met with.
