super special beers, needing little introduction, rarer than the proverbial but some of the best beers in the world.
The story of Mikkeller is the story of two young homebrewers, who in a few years went from hobby brewing at home in the kitchen to national and international recognition. Since August 2007 Mikkel Borg Bjergsø has run Mikkeller on his own. The success is partly due to the brewerys focus on creating challenging beers that test the boundaries and where quality always comes before quantity. In other words, uncompromising beer. The brewery want to challenge the Danes’ taste buds with intense taste adventures, and some of the inspiration is found on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean where the American breweries aren’t afraid to play and break all the rules.
Mikkeller wants to provoke some of this inventiveness in Danish beer brewing, so why not show the way?
