Pura Pura Blowout

Not too long ago, a group of people got together to build a skate park in La Paz, Bolivia from scratch. More than 100 volunteers from over a dozen different nations were joined by professional skateboarders Al Partanen, Josh Matthews, David Gravette, Chet Childress, Joey Pepper, Dan Plunkett and Marius Syvanen to help build what is now one of the largest skateparks in all of South America at 2,000 square meters. Volunteers from outside of the area and pros alike slept for weeks in makeshift[...]

Tasting Panel - George Vs. Brian BA Ed.

George Vs. Brian aged in three different barrels - Tequila, Calvados and Cherry Wine. Calvados edition This black hard-hitting beauty is pouring thick black, leaving a fine soy colored head.The nose is very characteristic for Mikkeller’s strong stouts. It is sweet, and the barrel comes through very clear. Raw licorice, apples, honey and chocolate cookie dough with a mild salty edge are the impressions we get from the aroma. This is one heavy beer - and the mouth feel is as thick and oily as[...]

Øl & Brød

In case you haven't heard, we opened up a restaurant. It's called Øl & Brød and it's an extension of what we've always been doing: High quality products served by beer-aficionados to be savored in a distinct, minimalistic Mikkeller-esque setting. For this project we are carefully handling the holy grail of Danish food, as we step into the world of Smørrebrød (traditional Danish open-faced sandwiches) - A style of food we are all huge fans of. Why? After being frustrated with the poor beer[...]

Tasting Panel - Beer Weak Brunch Weasel

Beer Weak Brunch Weasel - ABV: 4,8% Vol. The kid brother to the epic Brunch Weasel has a fine brown color and is topped by a cappuccino colored head. The aroma burst open with vanilla, burned almonds, and coffee with a high level of acidity. Upon tasting, it reveals itself with lots of dry dark chocolate, vanilla and clean cacao with an impression of fresh wet soil and a very dry finish. The mouth feel is rather thin compared to the rest of the Beer Geek family, but we find this both elegant,[...]

Tasting Panel - Hues

Hues - ABV: 5 % Vol. This spontaneous fermented beer has been aged in Hungarian oak barrels and appears with a light amber color with almost no head. The aroma is huge and very vinous. A clear impression of oxidized apples is the first thing that hits you, which made us think of heavy old fashioned British apple ciders. The aroma also reveals the wooden notes from the barrels along with some burned toffee and spices like Star anise. It has a very heavy acidic profile at first, one that quickly[...]

Tasting Panel - Sally Monroe

Sally Monroe - American Pale Ale - Alc. 2,8 % Vol. Sally pours a hazy golden body topped with a fine white head. The aroma is huge with a blooming profile almost like Jasmine flowers. On top you get the out sprung summer impression with both notes of honey and melon, but underneath a fine spicy peppery profile appear. When tasted, the spiciness stands out clear and leads to a citric acidity. We also experience a mild touch of grains that with its sweetness, goes well with the citric notes.[...]

Tasting Panel - Boon, Barrel no. 76 - Two year old lambic

Poured from tap it appears hazy and orange with almost no carbonation and thus no head at all. It’s a beauty that almost looks like light amber as you see in real apple juice or British cider. The aroma is mild, gentle and round - and not at all what you expect from a lambic. You really sense that this is not a new lambic. It has calmed down and you don’t get the aggressive acidic notes along with the dusty impressions. Instead it appears mature with a nice mild sweetness with expressions of[...]

Double gold in San Francisco World Spirits Competition

We took our favorite imperial stout, distilled it to beer brandy, barrel aged it in small barrels and ended up with a very distinct liquor that not only links directly to the beer, but also serve an overwhelming smooth finish. We've been sitting on this for a while now, knowing we were on to something good, but having the judges of the San Francisco World Spirits Competition awarding our Black Rum Cask not just gold, but double gold, is something that makes us very proud. They also decided our[...]

Tasting Panel

Mikkeller - Faro Reddish brown hazy pour with a potent fluffy white head. The nose is fruity in a heavy acidic and citric way, topped with a fine sweetness as from dried fruits like apricots and prunes. You will also find a blooming freshness like in elderflowers. The mouthfeel is creamy with a pretty low carbonation. The cream-white foam creates a smooth feeling like in an Italian Asti - just not as dry. This is a very sweet beer - and surprisingly sweet compared to the impression you get in[...]
