Available at any bar in town is Neptun, the local brew. According to a panel of expert tasters in Paris in 1986, it was then the world's best beer. Since that time, it's been challenged by other suds, but as any loyal native of Silkeborg will tell you, all other beers "taste like p -- ." We don't dare complete the word, but it rhymes with hiss.

Rather historic is the Underhuset Pub, part of the dining and drinking facilities within the also-recommended Hotel Dania, Torvet 5 (tel. 86-82-01-11), which is charmingly old-fashioned. The town's swankiest bar is in the previously recommended Radisson SAS . It was designed by Botikken, a well-known retail design store, and is the trendiest place for a drink in town.
