Things to do

Find a J-DAY bar near you

Friday 1 November is J-day, the Christmas beer day. At exactly 20:59, to be more precis, you can take part in this fun tradition, first launched by TUBORG in the 1990’s.

The J-dag stands for Julebryg. Not just any Christmas beer, but the one from Tuborg.

It’s a festive day, and all over the country, Tuborg’s nissegirls and boys drive around and make sure that Tuborg Christmas beer is in abundant supply.

On this day, and until sold out (beginning of January), you can buy Julebryg and Christmas beer from other brands in all Danish retail outlets and in a large number of bars, restaurants and coffee houses normally serving beer.

When I was a student, the J-day was always the first Thursday in November – much to the annoyance of schools and universities. As you can imagine, Friday was not a good day to be a teacher!

In recent years, the breweries have been obliged to change it to the first Friday of November to reduce the public disturbance caused by the party day it is.

If you are going out on the 1 November, maybe select, or avoid, the outlets that participate in the special Tuborg J-day event (depending on your actual party mood).

And if you take any public transport late at night, be prepared for happy, maybe even tipsy passengers on their way home.

The article continues below.

Find below the official list of Tuborg participating J-day outlets for all of Denmark.
