    The Warpigs Brewpub in Copenhagen, Denmark is offering customers a way to wait out their COVID-19 test by offering them a beer after taking the swab as the pub looks to restart business after months of restrictions.

    When customers arrive they can hand over 149 Danish krones, about US$25, and are given a COVID-19 test. They then receive a beer to drink while they wait about 30 minutes for their test result. Once they test negative, they can enter the pub.

    It’s part of Denmark’s “corona-passport” system, where people can use a mobile app or government-approved form to show if they have been vaccinated, previously infected or have had a negative test in the past 72 hours. Under the new system, staff at museums, bars, restaurants and cafes check customers’ status before they let them in. Some customers said while Denmark is offering free tests, the paid-for versions at Warpigs is actually helping them avoid queues elsewhere.

    Denmark, officially the Kingdom of Denmark, is a Nordic country in Northern Europe.  The capital is Copenhagen. Denmark proper, consists of a peninsula, Jutland, and an archipelago of 443 islands.

    The Kingdom of Denmark comprises Denmark proper and the two autonomous territories in the North Atlantic Ocean: the Faroe Islands and Greenland. Home rule was established in the Faroe Islands in 1948; in Greenland home rule was established in 1979 and further autonomy in 2009.

    Denmark has highly developed mixed economy. Denmark became a member of the European Economic Community (now the EU) in 1973, but negotiated certain opt-outs; it retains its own currency, the krone. It is among the founding members of NATO, the Nordic Council, the OECD, OSCE, and the United Nations; it is also part of the Schengen Area. Denmark has close linguistic ties to its Scandinavian neighbours.
